29: PB+J, Banana and Wheat Pita chips with Red Pepper Hummus for lunch; Asiago roll with red grapes and green onion pie from Coco’s for dinner. Meh.
30: Choco-chip bagel with low-fat cream cheese and pear slices, strawberry-banana Naked juice and pizza flavored goldfish. For dinner, jasmine rice with peanut-potato stew. Nothing was really photo-worthy.
Anti-climactic, isn’t it?
I was actually very pleased with the results of this past month. I was never really tempted to eat meat- it was just a convenience for the most part. Okay, I take that back: I was dying for a sandwich. I yearn for a Jason’s Deli chicken salad baguette or Schlotzsky’s Smoked Turkey combo.
- lighter food = less lethargic aftermath and easier to work out.
- limit the options for faster fooding decisions
- less strain on the market for meat for one month.
- more motivation to cook
- slightly more expensive for fish and seafood
- fresher ingredients = faster spoiling of greens and associated guilt of not eating on time
- food sharing is more difficult with a carnivorous bf
- strange reactions from my body
What I did wrong:
- I was over-reliant on peanut butter.
- I forgot to take a multi-vitamin daily to account for my usual diet.
- Gave up on cooking about half-way through the month.
