Mariana brought my new bag of The Fresh Diet on Thursday and the menu was very different from the first day. There’s a lot of variety in the diet (which is good) but the portion sizes are so small it makes me weep a little every time I see how much I should be eating.
Today’s breakfast started with Corn & Tomato Egg Bake with Monterey Cheese and Cantaloupe:
The egg bake was good and I recreated it over the weekend when I paused the meal delivery. The size was tiny but it’s helping me eat a bit slower and also appreciate the food a little more (because I know that’s all I get for the next few hours!)
For lunch, our team went to Dos Caminos to celebrate a team member’s birthday, so I ended up saving my salad for later (and totally gorging on guacamole and an amazing chopped salad). The actual lunch, which I had later, was Thyme Infused Chicken Salad with Arugula, Orange Segments, Strawberries, & Blueberry Vinaigrette:
I also had the Grilled Jumbo Shrimp with Lemon, Pepper, Garlic Sauce with Roasted Red Beets and Grilled Yellow Tomato:
As you can see, you’re only supposed to eat five pieces of shrimp as a dinner entree – so little! I’m glad I was able to combine the salad and the shrimp (and my snack!). For today’s snack, I had the Chicken Apple Sausage with Horseradish Dip & Cucumber Spears:
And for dessert, I sat in a little chair and enjoyed my Cherry Vanilla Cheesecake, which was another tiny sliver of cheesecake. I think all of the food is actually really good, it’s just tiny portions and it makes me so sad seeing how much food I should actually be eating everyday. We’ll see how long I can survive the new eating habits!
