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.
(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?!
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!
