- I'm eating less calories than usual, not sure why. I could have added beans to my dinner salad but just didn't feel like it. I love my dinner salad just how it is.
- the lunch veggies were really good. I stir-fried without water or oil! I started with the onions added to a hot pan. they sizzle and brown a bit and then release their liquid. the other veggies have liquid too, especially the mushrooms. just enough to keep it from getting too dry. I looked for some chinese 5-spice mixture but didn't have any so I used cinnamon. I'll have to pick up some of this spice next time I'm near Penzey's.
- food prep was easy today. I might be on to something here. oh, next time I won't do quite so many veggies at lunch and that will make it go faster--I got a little over-enthusiastic today.
- tomorrow I eat in a restaurant twice. I will actually eat their food in one. in the other I will eat mostly mine in my usual stealth way (order a plain salad and add my own calories). I plan to go off plan a little in the first restaurant; or you could say on-plan since my plan allows for a small amount of off-plan food. I guess I need to think of another phrase for planned off-plan, ha. stay tuned!
