This is the fourth week of the diet and probably the most challenging one so far. I will give you all the details at the end of the week! Tuesday, was the day I remembered to take pictures and a pretty good day. I can't call it a perfect day because I ended up only having 4 meals. I forgot to eat something before I ran to the grocery store and then by the time I finished, I had to run right to preschool to pick up my son, so by the time I got home it was lunch time. It threw off my whole day and I could only fit in 4 meals.
Low Carb Day
These don't look that exciting, and I guess they really aren't that exciting at all, but they aren't bad! The bonus is they are super quick and require no prep, I just warm them up in the microwave if I want to, but I have also eaten them cold and that has worked in a pinch as well!
I made the protein pancake recipe up and I may still tweak it a bit, but I have Whole Wheat pancake mix that I added a scoop of protein powder to, used almond milk instead of regular milk, egg whites instead of whole eggs. I left out the oil it called for, but added vanilla and cinnamon.
My husband really didn't care for them, they have a little bit of a nutty texture, which I like, but he does not! I think it would be really good with some syrup, but of course I have to skip that! I feel like it wasn't a total fail so I will keep working on making the perfect protein pancake :)
Leftover Chicken with Molasses Bacon Seasoning used as a rub before grilled. Oh Yum! I could eat this chicken every day...and actually, pretty much have since we made it!
I added a handful of almonds for my fat. I threw this meal (if you can call it that) together as soon as I walked in the door this afternoon. I needed to get food in quick. Although it is an interesting, it fulfills all the requirements for a low carb meal!
Vanilla Cream Protein shake with a scoop of Natural Peanut Butter in it. My favorite!
Healthy Baked Meatballs on a salad with Olive oil and Balsamic. These meatballs were so good! I realized after I was making them, that they had oats in them so maybe I shouldn't have eaten them today on my low carb day, but it was what I had planned and there wasn't too many oats in them, so I went with it anyway. I am glad I did because I really enjoyed the meatballs on the salad!
I ate a few extra meatballs to make up for the loss of calories from meal #2, hopefully this meal skip doesn't have a huge effect on my weight loss for the day! We will see on Friday when I get on the scale and maybe try on the jeans! Want to see my Progress?? Click here.
