Eat to Live 6 Week Plan: Day 2 of 42

Tuesday, May 09, 2017

Breakfast: Baked oatmeal with blueberries, almond milk, dried apricots and dates, flax-seed, vanilla extract and cinnamon.

Lunch: Tomato basil soup, cashew banana wrap on romaine lettuce, green beans cooked in vegetable broth with garlic and onion.

Dinner: Tex Mex Salad with corn, black beans, red onion, homemade salsa and an avocado dressing.

My husband and I got hungry in between breakfast and lunch after having the oatmeal. This is strange to me because I really thought the oatmeal would stick with us more than our typical breakfast including a green smoothie and fresh fruit. I over compensated at lunch time by eating more than I really needed… I didn’t want to feel uncomfortable and hungry between lunch and dinner. As a result we ended up eating dinner a couple of hours later than usual because we weren't hungry.

I need to work on portioning so that I get hungry for the next meal, but not so soon after eating a meal to where I’m hungry for hours.

    I, too, get hungry with oatmeal in the morning. Not sure why.

    I have failed to like tofu when I've made it in the past, at least a few different times - but that tofu scramble looks really tasty! I think I will pick some tofu up during the next shopping trip and give it a try again. Thanks for the tips.

    I like the banana wrap. Sometimes I find I need to eat a protein breakfast like burrito or tofu scramble. And I also found oddly enough delaying breakfast helped too if you can. That can be hard with work schedules emoticon emoticon emoticon
