I drink only water and a cup of coffee or two a day.

I exercises four times a week for twenty minutes.

1.26 Breakfast: We are staying in a hotel in Grand Rapids and they don’t serve breakfast. I knew this ahead of time and brought a healthy option. I made Oatmeal Breakfast Bites. However, I made them in a 8×8 pan and cut them into sixths.

Lunch: It is hard to make healthy choices when you go out to eat, everything I used to eat sounds so tempting, so I compromised. I got a wrap with turkey, spinach, red peppers. It came with 1,000 Island dressing. In hindsight I could have substituted that with Dijon but I didn’t. I did get the tater tots, they were yummy, but I didn’t eat them all.

No snacks, I was full from lunch and in conferences all day

Dinner: We went to a burger place. I tried some thing totally new and got a vegan burger. It was made of white beans. A bit mushy but it tasted good. I ate all the fries this time and I had a couple of drinks (rarely will I do this).

1.27 Breakfast: Oatmeal Breakfast Bites.

Lunch: Stopped at a restaurant on the way home from Grand Rapids and got a chicken, apple, cranberry, walnut wrap with a vinaigrette dressing and homemade chips. It was pretty yummy.

Dinner: Finally home and need to get groceries yet so I pulled one of my leftover bags out of the freezer and had a salad with it.

Snack: Larabar

1.28 Breakfast: The Best Breakfast Casserole

Snack: Had my snack at a weird time because we were at a volleyball tournament and I was already hungry. So I had Healthy Gingerbread Snack Cake

Lunch: Turkey sandwich in whole wheat organic bread, with provolone cheese, onion, red pepper and Dijon mustard. I also had some plain kettle chips and grapes.

Dinner: Rotisserie chicken (bought last night when I got groceries and knew I wouldn’t have time to cook) and riced cauliflower risotto by Green Giant. I added a little butter and garlic powder.

Snack: Fruit Smoothie

1.29 Breakfast: Carrot and Walnut Breakfast Loaf from October 2017 Clean Eating magazine.

Lunch: Leftover riced cauliflower risotto and chicken. Apple with a squeeze of lemon and sprinkled with cinnamon.

Snack: Black bean salsa and Late July Chia and Quinoa chips

Dinner: Portobello Lettuce Cups. There were so yummy. I was pleasantly surprised. The download (1)rest of my family had chicken instead of mushrooms. Got this recipe from Clean Eating October 2017.

Snack: Chocolate Brownie Bite

1.30 Breakfast: The Best Breakfast Casserole

Lunch: Leftover Portobello Lettuce Cup and grapes

Snack: Black bean salsa and Late July Chia and Quinoa chips

Dinner: Spanish chickpea and red bell pepper soup 61c89qy5SVLfrom Clean Eating Jan/Feb 2018 issue. I also made a grilled cheese from a tortilla made by Tumaro, only sixty calories. Didn’t really care for the soup.

Snack: No Bake Pumpkin Spice Latte Bites

1.31 Breakfast: Oatmeal Breakfast Bites.

Lunch: Leftover Portobello Lettuce Cup and grapes

Snack: Larabar

Dinner: Clean Eating Slow Cooker Italian Chicken and a salad. This was okay but my family didn’t like it so I probably won’t make it again.

Snack: No Bake Pumpkin Spice Latte Bites

2.1 Breakfast: The Best Breakfast Casserole

Lunch: Leftover Clean Eating Slow Cooker Italian Chicken  and some grapes

Snack: Black bean salsa and Late July Chia and Quinoa chips

Dinner: Roasted parsnips, broccoli, cauliflower, red onion and all natural turkey sausage, tossed with olive oil, garlic powder and Italian seasoning. Oh my, this was so good and easy to make. I would definitely do this again, maybe add carrots instead of parsnips, but I loved this.

Snack: Healthy Gingerbread Snack Cake
