What I Ate Today!

Ok I was asked by a sweet friend of mine to post what I ate today so here goes!

I am currently on a soft diet (because of oral surgery) so that kindof limits what I can eat, so my normal day would be a bit different but this gives you an idea.

Oatmeal with 1 tbsp. natural peanut butter and 1/2 sliced banana (YUM)
Herbal Tea with 1 tsp. honey

Post Workout Snack:
Protein Shake (2 scoops rice protein, 8oz. soy milk, frozen banana)

Chicken salad (made with corn, canola mayo, mustard, cilantro, onions and pepper)
served in green leaf lettuce cups
some grapes

2 tbsp. natural peanut butter

Mexican Lasagna (this was YUM, see note below)

1 piece dove chocolate
herbal tea with 1 tsp. honey

I also drank a gallon water which I do everyday (anywhere from 1 gallon to 1 1/2 gallons a day). It's the only thing I drink aside from the hot tea and the soy milk in my protein shake.

And I just realized I ate 2 1/2 bananas. Normally I would have an apple in place of a banana or hummus and carrots or wasa crackers but since I'm on a soft food diet, I can't have those right now.

Ok now to talk about the Mexican Lasagna. This was REALLY good! Everyone in the family loved it except my picky daughter, I did get her to taste it tho (I will share how in a different post). Once again, I got the recipe from "Meal Makeover Moms". Love them :)

I changed a couple things from the recipe. I used whole wheat flour tortillas and I used 10oz. lf cottage cheese and 2 cups lf cheddar cheese. It turned out great :)

So that's it! Nothing fancy! But it was good and filled me up! :)

Here's another sample menu of what I eat as well as a list of food changes I have made.

Here's to a healthier you,

    I am only on it because I had oral surgery and had 15 stitches in my mouth and couldn't chew anything hard! :)
