Well, today marks the half way point in my Clean Eating Challenge. So far, I’m not doing too bad. Almost everything I have eaten has been clean, I’ve made a ton of new recipes – most of which have been quite enjoyable – and it hasn’t actually been too difficult to stick to. Of course, there have been a few issues with portion control – remember the day I ate 6 Eat Clean Brownies…man those things were good! And now I have a dozen Eat Clean Chocolate Chip Cookies sitting on the counter calling my name! Apparently I’m having a little trouble resisting those as well!!! They are going straight to the freezer once I’ve finished this post! Out of site, out of mind…right?? Ya…I’ll let you know how that goes!!!
Breakfast: Whole Wheat Bagel with Peanut Butter – Since the first of June, I have had a Green Smoothie for breakfast every morning – as part of the Green Smoothie Challenge hosted by Amanda over at Run for It – but since we were at a cottage this weekend, and travelling with a blender and all the fixings would have been a lot – especially since we had a car full of baby stuff and a dog – I decided to just skip the smoothie this morning and figured I would have one when we got home later in the day….which didn’t actually happen…so I’m going to have two tomorrow to make up for it!!
Morning Snack – Eat Clean Chocolate Chip Cookie
Lunch – another Eat Clean Chocolate Chip Cookie…yep, that was lunch…brutal, I know. But we were rushing back from the cottage so I could get to a CPR Course in the afternoon, and I didn’t leave myself enough time to either make something or grab something healthy on the way. And these cookies were just sitting in the car from the drive back…so I wolfed on down on the way there….
Afternoon Snack – another Eat Clean Chocolate Chip Cookie…yep, wolfed another one down on the way home….can you say PIGGY!!
Dinner – Thin Crust Deluxe Pizza and a Tossed Salad made with lettuce from our garden! This dinner wasn’t all that clean, but it was just one of those days…
Doesn’t that plating look great…my husband did it…he says it’s all about presentation…I guess I should make more of an effort with my pictures!
