Yesterday was my first day really focusing on trying to keep my blood sugar under control. I decided to try eating less food more frequently. I started the stay with a bowl of live active cereal topped with walnuts, a banana and hemp milk. I made a smaller portion than in the past in hopes that I would get hungry sooner.
It worked like a charm, right around 3 hours later, I was hungry. I started with a handful of trail mix but i picked most of the fruit out of it.
That didn’t seem to do the trick so I had a few kashi crackers with a white chocolate dreams PB spoon.
For lunch, I headed to Ukrop’s to pick up sushi for T and I. I had a brown rice shrimp tempura roll. It was so good, you would never even know it was grocery store sushi.
And as if my body was set on a clock, around 3:30, I was hungry again. I had a fage with agave nectar and a few planter NUTrition nuts.
Once I was home from work, I spent 30 minutes on the treadmill and a sex and the city episode. By that time, I was hungry again and ready to make dinner. I made La Pasta goat cheese and basil ravioli with Whole Foods tomato and basil sauce. On the side, is sauteed baby broccoli in olive oil, mashed garlic, salt and pepper. Once it was done, I drizzled it with balsamic vinegar. This meal was ready in less than 20 minutes and was absolutely delicious!
After dinner, I caught up on blog world and then we watched Private Practice from the DVR, love that show! Once our dinner was settled, we did a 25 min yoga for runners flow. It was a great stretch for the legs! For dessert, I had a small bowl of chocolate hazelnut biscotti cereal. MMM..it had been al ong itme since I had it, it was just a s good as I remembered!
QOTD: Do you eat 3 meals and snacks or just three squares a day?
