Day Four: Tuesday Food Log

Some walking but no gym. I threw a dinner party last night with all Core foods-- with one exception and a bit of wine. I ate:

8 am:
1/2 cup oatmeal and blueberries
three little spoons of homemade nf yog
16 oz coffee, splash of milk

11 am
two squares cheeseless egg casserole (grn bns, celery, toms, peppers, minuscule turkey) with hot sauce

12:30 pm
homemade oat bar (oats, blueberries, an egg, baking powder)
an orange

5 pm
1/2 cup oatmeal with blueberries
1 square egg casserole

9 pm:

2/3 cup chicken green curry (no coconut milk) with eggplant, broccoli, grn bns, toms, peppers, onion, garlic, curry paste (4 teasp to a huge pot), veg broth, fish sauce (no sugar) and basil.

2 TBSP peanut spinach. as I read the Core list, I see that peanut butter is not okay. (Am I getting confused with South Beach here?) Anyway: peanut butter, tamari, a tiny bit of olive oil, garlic, a packet of toxic Splenda, spinach and bok choy.

1TBSP brown rice

6oz red wine with water (weird psychological trick to feel like I'm consuming more.)

One small slice of all-core pumpkin pie
One shot of very nice Haitian rum

Verdict: Lots of food. Perhaps the Core plan isn't good for a person who is always hungry. If portion control is a problem for me, all I need to "feel satisfied" may not be what I'll need to lose weight.

On the other hand, last week I would have eaten this meal with a huge mound of brown rice, a cup of everything (twice), the curry would've been drowning in coconut milk, and there would have been vanilla ice cream on my two pieces of pie.

I'll have to see how it has gone when I go to weigh in on Saturday.
