Now on day 8, and it is so exciting. I feel different, mentally and physically. Good luck pink sari , i gather you are about to start now! you have a great motivator - planning on starting a family, that is exciting!
B: oyster mushroom and tomato omlette , sprinkled with little bit of feta
MS: 3 tablespoons runny hummous (too much water in recipe - still yum!) and red pepper crudites
L: beef, fresh ginger, cauli, broc, mangetout, spring onion , red cabbage, spinach, oyster mushroom (would prefer normal believe me but at $2.80 a punnet I think too extravagent! I will treat myself once in a while though, i need to find one of those mushroom growing kits - that big sack of compost and fungi we used to keep in our farm kitchen!! hmmmmm maybe not)
AS: pecan nuts (i must go into general discussion to find out about my niggling question, I would love 30 halves but I have a feeling they mean 15 halves in the book as I am not sure you buy the whole nuts as a rule in the States??
D: trout, steamed spinach which I pureed with a little feta and remainder of pecan nuts and about a tbspn of fatfree milk , roasted cauli, broc, red pepper and garlic (i never thought to roast those vegs but they are yum) I just use olive oil - tiny bit.
So here is the naughty part and how I take my milk allowance! I have not given up tea or coffee but i only use fat free milk. I have about three cups of coffee a day and two cups of tea (maybe that is why I am not getting heachaches as I am still toxic
), one cup of black rooibos tea, one TAB. (which is caffeine and sugar free but totally bad for you I am sure!!, it is the only sweet fix I have though and it seems to be keeping me on track, we cannot get all those sweet popsicle thingies you talk of here) Now this is what I have in terms of drinks every day so I will not repeat it (unless I give up or reduce, or cheat) I also drink about 2 litres of water, maybe more. not less. Have happy weekends all.xx
