Day 14: It’s Over!

Breakfast was a scallion and feta omelet. I liked it, but not as much as last time. This time around I managed to flip it without breaking up the entire omelet 🙂

Lunch was mushroom caps with tomato and feta. I didn’t like it at all. More importantly, my stomach didn’t like it at all. In addition, it was very messy to eat.

The afternoon snack was apple slices with almond butter. I liked it, but I like pears and almond butter better.

Dinner was a chicken stir fry. I didn’t like it that much, but I don’t generally like stir fry.

The night snack was dark chocolate and I love my dark chocolate.

Final thoughts: I’m so glad this is over!

Day 9: Another Day, Another Recipe Error

Breakfast was an apple omelet. I can’t decide if I liked it or not. Like yesterday’s breakfast, the flavours were good but there’s something so weird about eating something with the texture of omelet that tastes sweet. The recipe listed vanilla as an ingredient but failed to mention it again in the recipe, so I mixed it in with the egg mixture. As you can see, mine turned into more of an apple scrambled eggs. Apparently I’m not very good at flipping omelettes.

Lunch was collard green turkey wraps. I didn’t like them. The flavours were way too bland. On the upside, it was pretty filling. It was kind of hard to get the collard greens to stay wrapped around the turkey meatballs, but I found that cracking the spines of the leaves  a little helped them to stay wrapped.

The afternoon snack was a blackberry parfait. I tried to flavour the yogurt with some honey and vanilla but I don’t think I used enough because it still tasted like plain yogurt. I don’t really like plain greek yogurt so I didn’t particularly enjoy this snack.

Dinner was a hodgepodge of peas, scrambled eggs, quinoa, and mushrooms. It tasted ok but I don’t think I would make it again.

The night snack was pears and almond butter (not pictured). This was my favourite meal of the day!

Final thoughts: I think I’m getting a little sick of this challenge because I’m expecting the food to taste incredibly good. For the remaining days, I’m going to try and lower my expectations. After all, this is “the clean eating challenge,” not “the best food you will ever eat challenge.”
