THM - Day 1

 Trim Healthy Mama Experiment. Day 1.

The food was fabulous. I seriously can't wait to get the book so I can get all the great recipes that I'm seeing on facebook. The only time I felt "deprived" today was when my kids enjoyed an ice cream sundae, which I would normally "share" with them. Oh, and I longingly looked at my all-time favourite almond chocolate chip cookies I packed in my hubby's lunch. Thankfully, skinny chocolate saved me from giving in to that temptation :-D

Breakfast: Fat free plain Greek yogurt, 1/2 tsp peanut butter, 1/2 tsp vanilla, sprinkle of stevia to sweeten, and fresh strawberries. SO good! This is "Fuel-Pull", I think.

Lunch: BLT on a homemade flax wrap with homemade avocado lime dressing. I also had a cheese string and small piece of the homemade skinny chocolate (coconut oil, cocoa, stevia, flaked coconut) for "dessert". This was also very, very good. "S" meal. The rest of the family had it on regular bread with regular mayo. 

Supper: Quinoa, Balsamic Roasted Vegetables, & Chicken (from a store-bought rotisserie chicken). These veggies were AMAZING. Seriously...a new favourite. Mixed veggies (zucchini, mushrooms, tomatoes, onions, peppers) tossed in 1/2 tsp of olive oil, 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar, and salt and pepper) & roasted at 425 F for about 20 minutes or so. I could eat this meal every week. 

For snacks: this evening I had another piece of the skinny chocolate (that stuff is awesome! I need to make some more tomorrow). I was a bit hungry still, so I made myself a smoothie with frozen mixed berries, fat free plain Greek yogurt (a THM staple), stevia, and a splash of almond milk. The only thing I wasn't too sure about today was the almond milk. I had it in my coffee this morning, too, and it's a little...weird.

For exercise, I did Workout 1 of the 30 Day Shred this evening.
I'm feeling great but am anticipating the possibility of some not-so-nice sugar detox side effects in the next few days.

Hi! What brand/flavor of almond milk did you buy?

Jenna said...

Almond Breeze Unsweetened Vanilla. It's...umm...less than desirable :-)

Yeah, the unsweetened will get you everytime I think haha. I really like the Almond Breeze original, but it is sweetened. At first, I wasn't sure, but I've been drinking only it for over 6 months now. I've heard almond silk is really good, but haven't tried it - maybe they have something that's unsweetened that's a bit better.
Good luck finding something that's a bit more desirable! If you do find an unsweetened tasty one, please let me know!
