Before this crazy ride I had no problem just cooking some pasta or rice or some form of an all-carb dinner. It was quick, easy, and satisfying enough. But now I'm trying to look at having more 'balanced' meals which for me means less carbs.
And from my previous posts you know that I love eating my 2 pieces of whole wheat toast with cream cheese in the morning. And most days I have some sort of a sandwich for lunch. So for dinner, I've been trying to ease up on the carbs.
Because of my lack of motivation to cook, I tried to come up with a fun quick meal tonight. However, my meal = FAIL.
I boiled chicken with onions, melted some American cheese on top and dipped in BBQ sauce. And I ate it with a side salad. It was so bla that I only ate 2 of the chickens and the salad.
And because of my failure to plan my meals, I consumed a very small amount of calories today. Since I haven't done a food log lately, I'll do one for today:
-2 slices of 100% whole wheat toast with 1/3 fat Philly cream cheese and tea
-14 raw almonds, handful of carrots, 1/2 small turkey sandwich (wheat bread, turkey deli meat, tomato, lettuce)
-2 small chicken breast strips with 2% american cheese, side salad (lettuce, tomato, carrots, garbanzo beans, raspberry vinaigrette dressing)
-Lavashak (basically a Persian snack that is pressed out dried berries)

I wish I had a personal chef so that I wouldn't have to eat boring food. Ha! Right.
