so, we are entering day 3.
i know some people have a hard time with S only days, but that’s really not the case for us. i was feeling the “trickiness” of not being able to use peanut butter (although defatted peanut flour is fine)… but the things that i missed the most had to have been not using cheese and pre-made low-carb breads. i was wanting to change up dinner (i didn’t end up doing that) and make a hamburger casserole… but that requires using eggs (no problem on deep S days) AND cheese to make the crust/bottom layer. it really wasn’t that big of a deal, though. i just stuck with my original plan.
also, lunches are a little more complicated if you want a wrap or a sandwich, since all pre-fab low-carb breads/wraps are out. i will say, i’ve missed that quick go-to option. they are allowed back in starting tomorrow, and i will be glad to see them return.
so, here’s today’s menu:
DEEP S DAY 3
breakfast: 2 eggs fried in coconut oil, 2 pieces of bacon
lunch: fajita steak and peppers on lettuce
snack: chocolate peanut butter smoothie (with defatted peanut flour)
dinner: spicy thai chicken salad
dessert: cake-in-a-mug (haven’t decided if i’m doing chocolate, lemon, or spice. i’ll ask the hubs. )
and here is brian’s perspective on the past day or two.
INTERVIEW w/ the HUBS
me: so, how was the food today.
hubs: really good. i really like the dinner.
(the man loves beef.)
me: did you get hungry today?
hubs: yeah, some after lunch.
me: did you eat the snack after lunch?
hubs: no. i forgot i had it.
(i can’t feel badly about the man being hungry if he forgets his snack.)
—fast forward to this morning at breakfast–
me: this is the last day of S.
me: so enjoy those eggs and bacon.
hubs: no eggs?
me: well, no whole eggs. we can have egg whites.
hubs: oh. so what are we going to eat?
me: that’s what i’m figuring out today…
well… until tomorrow!
OH, btw,we’ve decided to do an unofficial weigh-in tomorrow, just to see where the 3 deep S days have gotten us. <<fingers crossed!>>
