Today went pretty well although I did eat a handful of salt and vinegar chips mid-afternoon. They were there next to my daughter on the couch and I couldn’t resist.
Breakfast – the banana almond smoothie was delicious if not that sustaining. The almond butter gave the smoothie nice body but, like with so many smoothies, I was hungry long before lunchtime. I will make this breakfast again but will probably add some flax seed meal to give it some staying power.
Snack – I tried the avocado smoothie snack slated for tomorrow. It is basically an avocado, lime juice, and coconut water. I like the idea of this snack but the consistency was a little weird. I might play with this recipe in the future because it was very satisfying.
Lunch – The chicken, mango and rice salad was delicious. I don’t usually put rice in a salad but this worked well. In the future, I think you could adjust this recipe to use whatever you have in the fridge. It would be good with melon instead of mango or without the meat.
Dinner – We were unimpressed with the albacore brochettes. We like tuna in this house but this was kind of boring. If I were to make this recipe again, I would grill the tuna then serve it with the green tahini sauce on the side. The carrots on the other hand, was delicious. We all liked the spiced sauce. It was low fat and bright.
How I’m feeling – Tired, hungry, grumpy.
