I would describe the first two days in this way:
DAY 1: energized, hungry, headaches, trial and error/learning process.
DAY 2: energized, headaches, full satisfied tummies, and hopeful.
So, here's what we ate:
Breakfast: Drink mix/shake (if going "all-out" with the Garden of Life "Green Perfect Food" & "Super Seed" products, DO NOT try blending it up into a fruit smoothie like I did. Bad move. And here's why: It's gross. Cold. And takes way too long to drink down in that form. My recommendation: buy the pill formula instead of the powder). Since Garrett was such a man and just mixed the powders with water, he also enjoyed a goat's milk yogurt for his breakfast.
Lunch: Roasted Chicken and Gravy (recipe: http://www.thenourishinggourmet.com/2008/02/my-favorite-dinner-roasted-chicken-and-gravy-2.html), steamed asparagus, and a romaine salad with shredded carrots, and Garrett's homemade oil & vinegar dressing. : )
|Above was my plate. Garrett had a more generous portion of meat. : )|
Dinner: Leftover chicken and gravy, salad, and berries (blackberries & raspberries). I also nibbled on a slice of Goat's Milk Cheddar Cheese. A very sad dinner... which is probably why we were both so hungry before going to sleep! Oh well, we learned our lesson because on Day 2, we had...
Breakfast: A big, stuffed, yummilicous omelet with grilled onions, red peppers, mushrooms, and avocado! I had prepped the veggies the night before to save time in the morning... which I highly recommend! : )
|The blob on top is avo sprinkled with chili powder.|
Lunch: Baked Salmon (http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Baked-Salmon-II/Detail.aspx) and a strawberry spinach salad. We kept lunch on the lighter side, since we were both pretty full after our breakfast feast.
Snack: Good old celery & carrots with almond butter, and a mix of berries again.
Dinner: Tonight we enjoyed our chicken and gravy leftovers along with a salad. Thankfully, we are both still full and without headaches! : )
*You will notice we tend to eat heavier earlier in the day... this is because Garrett works afternoon-evenings, so his dinner is whatever I can pack into his mini-cooler for him to eat on his break at work.
