      I began eating clean yesterday and feel great.  It’s amazing how the minute I cut out sugars and additives, I don’t crave them.  I thought we could post our menus to give each other ideas and support.  It also keeps me accountable.  Here’s what I had yesterday:

      Breakfast:  Oatmeal, raisins, scoop of whey protein, 1 T wheat germ, 1 T flax seed.  (This was extemely feeling!)

      Mid morning snack:  broccoli, sugar snap peas, carrots, and red peppers with home made hummus.

      Lunch:  Salad with 3 oz. tuna, lettuce, olives, cucumbers, tomatoes and 2 oz. of string cheese.  I also used fat free dressing.  (Haven’t given up the prepackaged dressing yet.)

      Mid afternoon:  1/2 cup cottage cheese, grapes, 1/2 apple.

      Dinner:  Palm size chicken breast, green beans, and brown rice.

      For exercise, I walked on an incline on the treadmill and did the weight machines for upper and lower body.

      I never felt very hungry throughout the day or starving.  By the time I went to bed, I did not feel full, but comfortable and not heavy.

      I’ve cut back to 1 Diet Coke for lunch each day.  That’s a miracle for me.  I usually drink at least three.  I’m hoping to cut that out in the next week or so, and go to a healthier salad dressing.

        • Annie, what is your cottage cheese crepe?

          Yesterday went really well.  I followed the plan exactly, except I just had to have a Diet Coke last night.  I was having a headache and knew I’d head for junk food if I didn’t get it.  I decided it was the lesser of two evils.

          Here’s what I’m eating today:
          Breakfast:  eggwhites cooked with spinach and mushrooms, ezekial cinnamon bread.

          Mid morning:  peach and 12 almonds.

          Lunch:  Tuna salad (made with ff mayo and dijon mustard) in a wrap with lettuce, carrot sticks, grape tomatoes, and sugar snap peas.

          Mid Afternoon:  Yogurt, banana, and 1/4 C grapenutes mixed together.

          Dinner:  Stir fry with vegetables and shrimp over brown rice.  (I made a large batch of brown rice Monday).
