warm water with lemon
(I cut up several lemons and froze all of the slices, each morning I make warm water with lemon, by using the Keurig, without the insert, for the hot water, and then add a frozen lemon slice, for this little refreshing “lemon tea”.)
3 hard boiled organic eggs
romaine lettuce, tomato, broccoli – salad
w/ caesar dressing
w/ chicken drumsticks, grilled x 2
Because it was Day 1, and I was still full from the whole July 4th weekend, where I ate anything and everything. Especially TOO much sugar in the form of ice-cream, cookies, and other sweets and processed deliciousness. Either way – dinner was light yesterday, just a banana, because it’s been SO HOT. Definitely a humid heat wave has hit us – and as soon as we got home from work, we were off to the pool. The water was awesome, even though the sun was still beating down hard. For dinner, I made the three kids turkey & cheese wraps, grilled. They loved them, and they are fun & easy to make too!
I made a big salad yesterday morning as well, and my husband and I both had a bowl for lunch. I chopped up all of the above ingredients (romaine lettuce, tomato, broccoli) and added Caesar dressing. Even though I would rather NOT use the dressing, as it’s not the healthiest, I just
can’t choose not to eat the salad dry, so instead, I opt for this very low carb option.
I already woke up feeling SO MUCH BETTER this morning. Even though I totally understand why (eat like shit, feel like shit, eat good, feel good) I still sometimes feel like OMG I can’t believe how awesome I feel. It would be SUPER to feel good, and eat like crap, but it’s not possible for most of us. And it’s certainly even LESS possible the older & wiser we grow. Our bodies aren’t having it, none of it.
