Day 5- Hey! I like beets!
Well, let me be clear: I don't LIKE beets. Bad title. However, I don't mind them and that's not a great title. Not that I'm doing Shakespeare or anything. I actually think I would like them a bit better whole instead of pureed.
I had my first PT appointment of the new year. Due to this my life was a little crazy today. I'm posting my actual menu below.
2-4 rye crisp crackers topped with smoked salmon and yogurt mixed with red onions and chives What's not to like about anything involving smoked salmon?
Vanilla-Date Smoothie Again, delicious.
Leftover Endives, Apples, and Grapes Like I said, I'm done with endives. I tried. I will continue to eat them if they are involved with seafood in some way.
Leftover Sweet Potatoes These didn't warm up well.
I was supposed to have a salad but I didn't have time. I finally ate lunch at around 3.
Five-Spice Beet Soup Not bad.... Eating it again tomorrow for lunch. Kevin wouldn't touch it.
Seared Steak I was bad. It was supposed to be hanger steak- I did NY strips.
Warm Spinach Salad with Mustard Vinaigrette. This just added Dijon mustard to the citrus-shallot vinaigrette. Yum
2-3 Dried Figs and a Handful of Pistachios... I may have some dark chocolate instead/also. I'm low on calories today and I didn't have chocolate with my yogurt today.
Also, I'm drinking tonic water with a lime wedge. It's my faux gin and tonic. It's not too bad. I'm surprised I didn't think of this back in my low carb days.
