I had a large glass of water when I woke up. Talk about thirsty but we are having a heat wave here so it's normal for me.

Breakfast:
1 bowl of Neanderthin Chili (recipe from Neanderthin by Ray Audette)
half of a red delicious apple (I tossed the other half as the apple was sort of mealy but it had been sitting in the fridge for a while and looked okay)
a cup of orange pekoe tea

Lunch:
1 salmon fillet, poached
2 thin-ish slices of cantaloupe
ice water (I wish this humidity would go away)

I must edit:

Snack:
1 slice of cantaloupe (when my son came home from school and I was cutting some up for him for his snack)

Took a nap while the chicken was roasting.


Supper:
Four small bites of the roast chicken. I'm not feeling very hungry right now. I think ketosis has kicked in.

Wednesday's Food:

Breakfast: Some leftover roast chicken (about 3 to 4 ounces)
tea

Lunch: 1 salmon fillet

Dinner: the last of the leftover roast chicken (about 8 to 10 ounces)
with some melted butter mix with it. (had to heat it up)
a tea

Snack: 2 bottles of caffeine-free diet pepsis. (so much for giving up the DP :-[ but at least I went with the caffeine-free version)

Wasn't feeling very hungry. Did some gardening.

That's the great thing about protein- it satisfies the hunger very well.. better than fats or carbs..  but hey, don't forget your fresh veggies and fruits!   We need the bulk, fiber, vitamins & minerals, phytonutrients, low-glycemic carbs, etc..  ;)

I didn't forget about them, I just had not gone grocery shopping in a long time. Fixed that today. I bought some nice fruits and veggies.

I tend to only shop when the toilet paper is running low. It saves on trips to the store and I don't really care for shopping that much....grocery or otherwise.

Yeah, I'm not fond of shopping either, and when getting meats, poultry, and fish, I get enough to last a couple of weeks, putting most of it in the freezer section of our fridge and thawing it out as I need it.  But I still need to go to the grocery store at least once a week to get the fruits & veggies, which only last about a week (especially the salad fixings).

Same here with the fruits and veggies.

In L.A., there are 99 cent only stores that have TONS of fresh produce for 99 cents. I get all sorts of stuff there -- romaine, tomatoes (the best in the area, honestly), sometimes blueberries, blackberries, cantaloupe, those mini seedless watermelons.

I really like it because it's always whatever's in season, which makes me feel a bit more in tune with the environment.
