E2 28 Day Challenge - Day 24

by Rachel

Today was an interesting test - I had an all day conference at work - which meant work-provided breakfast, lunch, and snacks. I decided to bring my food with me from home anyways since I didn't know what they'd have and we're trying to really stick to the plan.

It worked pretty well - I did grab a cookie or two for the kiddos, but no indulgences for me - and to be honest, it didn't matter to me one way or the other - there was no salivating at the food table for me. I enjoyed the food that I DID have! (well, except for a very unripe banana...)

Day 24

1582 cals (307g carbs, 29g fat, 60g protein, 44g fiber)

Simple Cereal Bowl
No picture this morning - this was trying to get my breakfast in before the first session of my conference started. It was pretty good - but I learned a lesson - GREEN bananas do NOT taste good!

E2 Open Face Sandwich with Black Bean Spread

They did have a vegetarian option for lunch - and I did pick one up - but I wasn't sure about the dairy, so I opted to just eat what I had brought, and save my lunch for the kids to share. I LOVE this black bean spread! Oh, and I had ground lemon pepper onto my cucumbers, so it was meshed with the cucumbers on the sandwich - really good!

Red Vegetable Curry over Brown Rice

WOW! I really enjoyed this meal! Couple things - I had no snow peas, so I used collard greens chopped up instead - it went perfect with everything! Also, we added TJ's Sweet Chili sauce to it and it was a really good complement to the flavors! A+

Orange Segments Yogurt with Blueberries

We had just had oranges with lunch, so instead we had yogurt with Blueberries, and I topped mine with oats - Paul topped his with granola.
We had Amande almond yogurt - which is definitely different! I enjoyed it with the combo of blueberries and oats, but I probably wouldn't eat it by itself. Looks like we're not eating yogurt by itself lately anyways :)
