Flat Belly Diet - Day 2 of the jumpstart

6:44 AM AirplaneFoodCritic 0 Comments

There is a lot to the Flat Belly Diet that I do not know but I think I have the important bits. There is a book that they want you to buy that tells you pretty much what you can find on the internet plus exercises and I think a workbook where you write down your feelings and degree of hunger before and after each meal. I am not going to bother spending the $35 to get the book, specially since I spent $60 at Whole Foods last weekend preparing for this four day pre-start thing. Flaxseed Oil is expensive!!

Organic is better
Well, Whole Foods is expensive, for that manner, but I learned a lesson. As you may know I belong to a farm to front door delivery service that brings me fresh, organic fruits and vegetables to my front door every other week. Before this service I did not like fruits at all. I was known around town as a fruit hater, even. But since I began eating organic, farm fresh fruits I love them! I became particularly enamored with the little mini oranges. I would eat like three a day. When I ran out I went to a regular chain grocery store and bought a huge box of the "Cuties". I was so disappointed! They were not sweet, not orange and they were hard. I had to peel each one and stick them in my Vita Mix with some agave syrup just to use them up. Then I fed it to the bf. (heh heh) So, the moral of this story is, organic may cost more, but apparently I end up wasting it otherwise.

Day Two Meal Plan
1 cup Kashi 7 Grain Puffs, 1 cup fat free milk, 1/4 cup sunflower seeds, 1/2 cup applesauce, glass of Sassy Water.

Smoothie: 1 cup frozen blackberries, 1 cup fat free milk, blended then drizzle 1 tbsp flaxseed oil on top

3 oz tuna in the can, 1 string cheese, 1 cup of vegetables (I forgot to bring a veggie), glass of Sassy Water

1 cup mushrooms sauteed with 1 tsp olive oil , 3 oz chicken breast, 1/2 cup wild rice.

The breakfasts are getting easier to handle. They seem so boring but I just get up and slurp it down. I put the sunflower seeds in the cereal to add some flavor because I am missing my sugar and salt. Speaking of salt, I think I may be slowly getting used to not having salt. I hope so because I think I have a bad relationship with salt.

Today's lunch was not yummy. Flavorless tuna from a can. Gross. So what I did was put a dash of black pepper and a squeeze of lemon on it then I took the cheese and melted it on top pretending it was a tuna melt. If I had brought veggies I would have loved to have added a little chopped celery or lettuce to it but I was stranded, vegetableless, at work.

For dinner I made a pretty tasty meal with those ingredients. I chopped up the mushrooms really small. I cut the chicken into small pieces as well. I put both in a pan and sauteed them with the 1 tsp of olive oil to really mix the flavors. I added the tiniest pinch of black pepper and some herbs. I added a pinch of Marjoram, Sage and Parsley. I placed the rice on the plate, covered it with the mushroom chicken mixture and topped it all off with a tablespoon of Oregano and Thyme from my garden. I almost cheated and drizzled a little truffle oil over the whole thing. But I was a good girl.

Day two over and I have lost a total of 3.2 pounds.
