My immune system was feeling a bit compromised this morning after falling behind on sleep this week, so I picked up the greenest green juice I could find on my way to work, and took shots of green juice for a boost. I also stuck to my goal of increasing my water intake today.
My first meal of the day was a 12oz bag of steamed green beans and a medium sized russet potato. After breakfast, I sipped on an Earl Grey tea.
For lunch, I took 4 cooked yukon gold potatoes and shredded them into hash browns. I added some garlic and onion powder as well as some chopped spinach, and pressed it into a baking pan. I baked it at 420 until it was crispy.
I made a sweet mustard sauce, tossed it with the hash browns, and ate it on my way back to the office.
For an afternoon snack, I had a pear and a few raw peanuts.
And for dinner I made rice in the instant pot, added steamed mixed vegetables, some rice vinegar, garlic, and a little gluten-free soy-free Tamari, and had ‘nothing fried about it’ fried rice.
After dinner I was hardcore craving something sweet. I don’t keep anything sweet, salty or munchie or crunchy in the house, which totally saved me tonight. I did however find a container of dates and I had just three. Wow are they sweet!
