Nothin' Fancy


Here are my Wed/Thurs/Fri meals...

Wednesday
Breakfast: 2/3 slice of brown rice bread w/ organic peanut butter
Snack:      1 Banana
Lunch:      2/3 piece of baked organic chicken breast and cup of vanilla goat yogurt
Snack:      2 ounce shot of wheatgrass
Pre-Dinner Snack:  Smoked Goat Cheese w/ wheat thins
Dinner:    Roasted Turkey (White parts only), steamed veggies, wild rice, sour dough roll
Dessert:    Yummy pear dish over one scoop of french vanilla ice cream (made by Matt's mom)

Thursday
Breakfast: Bowl of oatmeal w/ cut up banana and hint of brown sugar
Snack:      1.5 ounce shot of wheatgrass
Lunch:      Baked chicken spinach salad w/ hard boiled eggs, carrot, cucumber, celery, red bell pepper
Snack:      Roughly one cup of goat yogurt
Dinner:    A combination of chicken nachos and thai chicken penne pasta (we went out to eat    at our local brewery)
Dessert:    Freshly made pumpkin cheesecake

Matt and I met up with some friends for dinner on Thursday night.  I am a firm believer of ordering, within reason, what you want from the menu and not worrying about taking the "healthy" option.  Truth be told, most "healthy" dishes in restaurants aren't healthy at all...including salads and fish!!  Think of it this way, The Cheesecake Factory's grilled salmon ranges between 825-1,861 calories w/ 11g of fat...yowza!  I guess what I'm trying to say is just enjoy your night out and get what you want (within reason)!!  

Friday
Breakfast: Bowl of oatmeal with a hint of brown sugar; 1 slice of brown rice bread w/ organic  crunchy peanut butter, cup of vanilla goat yogurt, and a small glass of goat milk
Lunch:      Leftover baked chicken spinach salad 
Snack:      Veggie drink consisting of 1/2 cucumber, 1/4 beet, 2 large carrots, 2 celery stocks, 1 apple
Dinner:    Cheese pizza, 4 homemade chicken wings
Dessert:    Homemade brownie w/ a scoop of french vanilla icecream and a hint of raspberry sauce

I ate a larger breakfast than normal this morning because I was not going to be able to eat a snack between breakfast and lunch.  Tonight Matt and I are watching Bruno for the first time with our super awesome friends Andy and Sara.  Bruno wouldn't be complete without pizza and some fatty munchies.  Tonight's dinner is an anomaly for me as I normally wouldn't eat any of these foods (besides the occasional cheese or veggie pizza once every now and then).  I've heard crazy reviews about Bruno that has left me more than curious...

This is really interesting. Thanks for posting. So you don`t have to eat a restricted diet for the rest of your life then? If you`re feeling okay you can eat the good stuff from time to time?!
