Although the constant fear of being hungry just makes me want to eat more...I found some control and stuck to our $5 diet.
Here is what we ate:
For Breakfast: ($1.17)
yogurt & apple (I also had two cups of tea which work provides free of charge)
For Lunch: ($1.40)
grilled chicken sandwich on ww bread with cheese lettuce and tomato
For Snack: ($.50)
For Dinner: ($1.85)
grilled chicken, rice, broccoli, cauliflower, eggplant, zucchini, water chestnuts and bamboo shoots.
|This whole plate cost us $1.85!|
With $.08 left for the day, I opted to have 2 (!) Peeps ($.008/each) and a cup of tea ($.1), which actually leaves me with some change!
Even better than some change in my food pocket, my little food tracker app tells me I ate adequate carbs, and received plenty of protein, calcium , iron and vitamin A & C.
I had a pretty tough workout at the gym tonight and I feel pretty good. I was worried I'd feel more run down, or that perhaps my body wouldn't recover well, but so far so good. And I'm full!
Bring on Day 2!
