Nom Diary 7/2 + 7/3
by Nicole Lee
I was really lazy these past two days, thus the lack of blog posts. But here’s my food journal update for the past two days because I’m trying to keep myself honest. And before you ask: Yes, I’ve been sticking to the diet. Crazy, I know.
Had a big serving of eggs in the morning, and didn’t eat lunch. I did drink a lot of liquids and snacked on macadamia nuts, so that helped to tide my appetite.
As for dinner, I had some chicken thighs defrosting in the fridge, and decided to follow this recipe for lemon paprika chicken. I marinated it for a few hours, and then roasted it for half an hour. Nice and easy weeknight meal, though I would probably cut back on the cayenne pepper next time. For a side, I fried up more of the bacon + broccoli + spinach dish, and nuked another sweet potato. Dessert was more berries and coconut milk.
Yep, more eggs in the morning. I didn’t manage to pack lunch, so I cobbled together a simple salad from the Petaluma Market salad bar. I combined spinach, hard boiled eggs, olives, cucumbers, and tomatoes into a box without any dressing. Instead, I bought a tin of Ortiz Bonito del Norte tuna packed in olive oil and dumped the contents of it onto the salad. I probably should’ve gotten some vinegar or a lemon, but the lack of acid didn’t bother me that much.
For dinner, I whipped up some homemade mayonnaise, and combined a few spoonfuls with leftover paprika chicken for a makeshift chicken salad. I layered a couple of lettuce leafs onto a Pure Wrap, scooped some of the chicken on it, and rolled it up.
The Pure Wraps are essentially flattened coconut meat. They taste really good, and are quite filling. I had two wraps and I was done.
