Trim Healthy Mama Fuel Cycle: Day 2

As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, I’m doing a Trim Healthy Mama “Fuel Cycle”. Today is Day 2. I’m still in Deep S mode today.

Trim Healthy Mama Fuel Cycle

(Quick note: OliveNation, my favorite source of flavor extracts, is having a 20% off sale for 2 days. Use code TWENTY at checkout. I used their caramel extract just yesterday to make Salted Caramel Skinny Chocolate. I don’t love skinny chocolate as-is, but it was awesome doctored up this way! I added a couple teaspoons caramel extract to the recipe, then once I poured it into molds, sprinkled extra mineral salt on top. I loved it! Go here to take advantage of the offer, minimum order $25.)

Breakfast (5:15) – yes, you read that right, I ate at 5 am! I was STARVING when I woke up. Obviously my metabolism is kicking into high gear, because I usually don’t eat until around 6:30.

I had a frittata made with 3 eggs and Mexican-seasoned ground turkey (leftover from last night’s taco salad), plus coffee with a very small amount of half and half. (Small amounts are ok on a fuel cycle.)

Snack (9:00) – a fried egg and 2 small sausages, then a Hot Custard. People I felt STARVING. This is a good sign. The ol’ metabolism is waking up!

Lunch (11:15) Yes, I know I didn’t wait a whole 3 hours here, but I was cooking for the kids and didn’t want to go back into the kitchen soon after to cook again. So I had half a chicken breast cooked in butter with sauteed kale. Just like yesterday. Keeping it simple!

Snack (1 PM) A few pieces of Salted Caramel Skinny Chocolate, a Trimmy and a Salted Caramel Gluccie Pudding. Um, excuse me gluccie pudding, but where you have been all my life?!

Fuel Cycle Day 2: Deep S

I drank GGMS in the afternoon.

Dinner (5:30)Salmon Patties, roasted cauliflower and Brussels sprouts. Oh man do I love roasted veggies! It brings out the natural caramelly sweetness in them, plus butter and olive oil – hello. I had a couple pieces Salted Caramel Skinny Chocolate for dessert.

I’m looking forward to eating some carbs tomorrow, but my body really loves these Deep S meals and snacks!

Go here to read the first post about my Trim Healthy Mama fuel cycle, and notes from the entire week.

    Going into the kitchen now to make Salted Caramel Skinny Chocolate. And YES to roasted cauliflower. I sprinkle with sage after having it prepared that way at The Optimist a couple of years ago; thereafter it became one of the first times I ever truly craved cauliflower. So good.

      I know that you don’t go overboard with nuts in a Fuel Cycle/Deep S setting, but I finely chopped almonds and sprinkled my Salted Caramel Skinny Chocolate with a pinch of the “almond shavings”. In the freezer now and hopefully will be ready for me to try when I get back from yoga. They look almost Godiva-worthy in the heart and shell shaped silicone molds. Pics to follow :).

        sounds amazing. I can have that now that I’m out of Deep S mode :-) I also make those payoff candies with almonds, and almond extract, instead of peanuts.

      Ooh I love sage! We have it growing in the garden. Thanks for the tip :-)
