I decided to have a “I’m having a healthy day, what about you?” day every Thursday. Let me know your thoughts about doing this?
Today is one of my IF (intermittent Fasting) days.
MEAL #1 – NOON – Parsley salad, 1/2 slice of pizza, cookies:
I had the parsley salad talked about in an earlier blog.I also added 1/4 cup of unsalted sunflower seeds and some broccoli sprouts in the salad. In addition to the salad, I had the last 1/2 of a slice of pizza left over from last night. I had made a small pizza with an almond meal/cauliflower crust. I’ll talk more about this pizza in another post.
I also had 2 small cookies. Keep in mind that the cookies I had have no flour or sugar in them other than a very small handful of chocolate chips that were put into the entire batter. Peanut Butter, Banana, and Quick Oats were the main ingredients. I’ll be posting about these cookies at a later time.
MEAL # – FOUR PM – Greek Pasta and Shrimp Dish, Silky Spinache Soup:
My husband and I have a favorite little greek pasta and shrimp dish that I make. I used to have a blog called maryskitchenadventures.blogspot.com. The dinner we are having now is on that site. The picture is from the other site also.
*Note* I normally would have waited until 5 or 6pm. I knew I was going out from 4:30pm until 7:30pm and didn’t want to eat that late.
Link to recipe is here:
Unfortunately, I forgot to buy mushrooms for the greek pasta and shrimp dish. I added onion and kale tonight.
I also had a small bowl of silky spinach soup with a tablespoon of organic coconut oil and some parmesan cheese.
Pasta isn’t something that I should be eating on IF days, but sometimes it just happens that way. I have been trying to stay away from a lot of carbs – so I don’t mind so much when I do have them. I’m trying to stick to things like oat bran, quick oats, and quinoa to name a few. I also have the following on occasion: rice, potatoes, and breads.
I did exercise today. If there is a day to eat carbs, exercising days would be the best days to do that.
