Today’s day 3 of my Trim Healthy Mama Fuel Cycle, and I can now eat CARBS. Days 3 and 4 are E fuel days. Woo!
Breakfast @ 5:30 AM – For breakfast I enjoyed an Apple-Cinnamon muffin, with an extra half apple and Salted Caramel gluccie pudding: a lovely combo and it kept me full for the entire 3 hours! Plus a small coffee with a tiny amount of half and half.
Snack @ 8:30 – Vanilla Gluccie Pudding – again, I love this stuff! So glad I finally tried it, and it’s Fuel Pull!
Lunch @ 11:30 – Half a sweet potato, ground turkey patty, sauteed onions and zucchini. GGMS to drink.
Snack @ 3:30 – I made a Trim Healthy Mama “E” waffle and enjoyed it with mock maple syrup (recipes for both are in the THM cookbook) and a couple of sliced strawberries. I had a cup of half decaf coffee with 2 T half and half (which has only 3 grams of fat, keeping me well under 5 grams!).
And would you believe, I discovered I had run out of oat fiber AND baking blend!? For me, running out of baking blend especially is an emergency. I was craving Sheri Graham’s Fuel Pull chocolate cake which calls for oat fiber and couldn’t make one! Plus, with Fuel Pull days coming
Dinner @ 6:00 – Another ground turkey patty, this time with a salad and half a sweet potato. For dressing, I stirred together a bit of 0% Greek yogurt, a dash mustard, a bit of stevia for a “honey mustard”. It was good.
Tip: one of the ways I save time while doing Trim Healthy Mama is to cook several things at once for use them later. For example, I cook several sweet potatoes at a time and eat one every day until they’re gone. Or I cook Bust-a-Myth banana cake or Trimtastic Zucchini cake, cut into portions, and freeze so I have an easy snack or meal. I often make a family-size portion of muffins, freeze and do the same. Etc.
Tomorrow is another E day. See you then!
