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 4: Two Dates

Breakfast was an omelette with scallions and feta. It only took 15 minutes to make and it was the best meal of the day. Mine turned into more of a scrambled eggs because the pan I was using wasn’t non-stick, but it was delicious nonetheless. This breakfast was also very filling and kept me full till lunch time.

Lunch was a Greek salad. It was also very quick to prepare and I liked the lentils a lot more in the salad than I did last night as a side dish to the cauliflower steaks.

The afternoon snack was a banana and chia seed smoothie. It was very quick to make since I had already prepared a freezer bag with the fruit, and it was delicious. It almost tasted like liquid cookie dough. I only wish I had a little more of it, because it did not satisfy my hunger for very long.

Dinner was a roasted fennel salad. It took over an hour to make because it takes a while to roast fennel. I really enjoyed the roasted fennel. The tiny pieces that were almost fried were especially good. The salad as a whole however just wasn’t that filling and felt like it was missing something.

The night snack was 2 dates stuffed with almonds. 2 dates! It definitely felt way too small.

Final thoughts: today was the first day during this challenge that I felt weak and tired. I’ve been working out daily since the challenge started but I didn’t have the energy for it today. I was very surprised because breakfast was so filling and the past few days’ meals have been so large, but here I sit, still hungry. I looked at tomorrow’s meals and the only one I’m excited for is breakfast (cauliflower omelet). Hopefully one of the other meals will be surprisingly good.
