I'm so sorry, I have been going on a ton of trips and have barely had time to do this blog but here I am filling in the gaps. I know that on Day 18 I was very bored with the food options at home and had a hankering for Indian food. I got Chicken Jalfrezi which was all I could have on the menu besides seafood jalfrezi, I could not have all the veggies in the dish such as caramelized onions, peas, and carrots but all others I ate. I didn't eat the rice that came with it because rice is restricted and I did not eat all of the sauce because it was just too much sauce.
It occurred to me how much sauce is on any plate at a restaurant, its overbearing, there is always too much. Why drench the good food in sauce? Why not just add a good amount of sauce and leave the food a little naked so we can enjoy the flavors you put into it, why are we hiding it with sauces?
On top of being on this diet I'm taking a new class - Nutrition, so appropriate right? Learning a lot about what the government believes your daily plate should look like. Google search "MyPlate.gov" and go check it out.
Breakfast - Hot Chocolate (IP food), really good, tastes just like actual hot cocoa.
Lunch - Mushroom Soup w/ Sea Salt (IP foods), portobello mushrooms in the soup w/ fresh basil and Arugula salad w/ Walden Farms dressing (love this stuff, pour on as much as you like its good for you).
Dinner - Indian food: Chicken Jalfrezi w/ veggies from a great place in South Weymouth called Fishtail Kitchen, so good. Sea Salt (IP food)
Snack - My mom introduced me to these awesome cheese puffs called Southwestern Cheese Puffs, which are an Ideal Protein food. They taste so good, they are cheese puffs with a tasty spicy twist, addictive!
All water met and vitamins taken.
