what I ate this week

I am on Day 6 of the slow carb diet – tomorrow is my “binge” day and I already have a list of all the foods I want to eat that I have craved throughout the week…but I’ll get to that in a minute.

This is what I’ve been eating this week:

Breakfast – so far my favorite is egg whites (from a carton, 2 eggs worth), 1-2 spoonfuls for black beans, bacon (the already cooked kind, 1 portion which is 3 strips, cut up).  Mix it all up in a bowl and microwave for 2 minutes.  Top with a spoonful of salsa and 1/4 avocado.  Next week I will work on getting more veg in at breakfast and drinking more water before I even eat.  I also have 1-2 cups of coffee with 1/2 teaspoon of truvia.

Lunch – I go back and forth between a cup of chili and a spinach salad or a large salad with shrimp & kidney beans or black beans.

Dinner – I had one portion of protein (chicken, steak, or salmon), a salad, broccoli, and I had it in my head that I needed to spruce up the beans somehow in order to eat them.  I tried about 3 different recipes and hated them all.  I ate them anyway, but next week I will just eat plain lentils or black beans.

Snack – By this point, I could barely choke down any more food.  So on a couple occasions I had a celery stick with almond butter.  Or maybe a handful of walnuts.

Water – I had 75-100 ounces of water per day.  Next week I will strive for 100+ per day.

Supplements – I didn’t have any this week.  I’m not doing any supplements that are suggested in the book, but I will try to get a multi-vitamin and some fish oil in next week.

Any suggestions of what I could do better?  Other recipes you enjoy?

Now on to the foods I’ve been CRAVING….pancakes, donuts, pasta, pizza, gummy bears, clementines…anything sweet or cheesy!  The funny thing is, I hardly ever have sweets.  But I do usually have quite a bit of fruit, so I think I’m just missing sugar.

Looking forward to seeing my end of week results and hopefully not splurging so much that I screw it all up next week!
