Down another half-pound, 7 1/4 total for my work. Honestly, it isn’t as hard as I thought it would be. I am completely satisfied after my meals, whether they be of solid food or green smoothies, or juice.
Interesting thing happened this morning: I forgot I hadn’t eaten and it was almost noon! So I whipped up the fastest thing I could do– the trusty green smoothie and had a little leftover cabbage salad from last night.
NOTE: I can’t eat anything after 7:00. That has never been a problem, possibly because I have to finish drinking my requisite amount of water for the day. Water, in the amount our bodies need, can help us stave off hunger at any time of day.
Breakfast: Green smoothie of 3 leaves chard, big handful spinach, sprouted ground flax and chia seed, protein powder. 1/3 cup cabbage salad from last night. NOTE: Three leaves of chard is too much. Two is optimal for nutrition but won’t make it too strong. Spinach is always among the mildest greens.
Lunch: second half of my green smoothie.
Dinner- Salad with tomatoes, raw almonds, celery, onion, cilantro, lemon, no-salt seasoning, nutritional yeast, and avocado. 1 1/2 cups was very satisfying.
