Fed Up Challenge Redux – Day 4

Today I went a little out of control. Oh, I’m still under calorie wise and it could have been worse. No added sugar went into me. It wasn’t as bad as last year when I ate a whole box of marzipan. But I overate and I feel kind of icky.

I’m under for everything except fat and sodium.  So there’s that, but I’m pretty sure this kind of diet is not what my doctor had in mind when she told me to watch my cholesterol.

But around 5PM I realized I was going to have to unthaw the cauliflower rice and the sauce, and I lost my mind and  had way too much in the way of cheese and unsweetened, dried bing cherries.

More and more I’m thinking there’s something to this food addiction business because there’s absolutely no rational basis for this kind of behavior.

Breakfast: scrambled eggs, mixed with some of that yummy avocado pesto mixture, 2 tortillas, and some salsa fresca.

Lunch: leftover quinoa and kale, leftover chicken with avocado pesto, and an orange

Snacks: 1/4 cup of almonds, like 6 ounces of the aforementioned cheese, and 1/2 cup of the dried bing cherries

Dinner: cauliflower crust pizza with homemade marinara, fresh mozzarella, mushrooms, and red onions.

The cauliflower crust pizza was excellent, but it still requires a lot of prep, even with the stop of doing the “rice” part ahead of time. I think when I decide to make it again, I’m going to figure out how to freeze the already-made crusts.

I am still cranky, but I’m starting to feel a bit more alert than I have in months and months. So let’s put it down to (mostly) proper nutrition.
