My eating has changed quite a bit since shunning the grains and fruits , Some fruit will come back starting next week and some occasional whole grains, but for now they are gone. So what do you eat when you shun those amber waves ?
Breakfast- mushroom cheese eggs with turkey bacon
Lunch- baked chicken leg and sauteed cabbage
Snack- hardboiled egg and cheese stick
Dinner- Ranch chicken, Parmesan garlic yellow squash rounds, sweet potato fries, red pepper strips and sliced cucumber
Dessert- chocolate mousse ( cream cheese, whipping cream, splenda and cocoa powder). It is VERY satisfying, tasty and I really do not miss grains in the least. I feel more energetic, have no joint pain, am sleeping much better and my skin and hair are looking better. The scale is slowly moving down ( at my age rapid weight loss is not something that happens) , and cooking is a lot easier.
I think I will stick with this .Only change I need to make is to swap my current brand of Diet Soda for Diet RC, which is made with Splenda instead of Nutra Sweet
