|With the exception of the basil and cabbage, this is a fruit salad|
|Food Stylist Note -it looked way more appetizing before the flaxseed|
unlfavored fat-free greek yogurt is just a bit too dry and cheesy for my preference in the morning. Pair that with almonds and flaxseed and the whole dish was rather dry. I ended up mixing it all up rather than leaving it layered but the blackberries ended up being the only thing 'moistening' the dish. I feel like it could have used some honey or jam or something to liven it up a bit.
|That 9 cup bowl makes another appearance.|
I skipped the avocado and had the carrots & hummus I skipped on Day 1 as my afternoon snack. Since they both contained healthy fats & similar calories I considered it an equivalent exchange. Some avocado would have been nice on the salad though.
|Now with less kitten!|
Tonight may be a challenge. It's my monthly homebrewer's club meeting, which involves a beer tasting and usually some kind of snacky foods being passed about. I have the willpower to forgo the food, but I really, genuinely do enjoy tasting others homebrews. I could skip, but one of the things I hate is choosing a diet over a good time. I have personal training today after work but before the meeting, so if I do indulge at least I'll have gotten in some good exercise beforehand.
|Drizella put herself in kitten jail and couldn't get out.|
If not, tonight is hot chocolate night, as well as the roasted cauliflower with lentils recipe I'm excited to try. And the foster kittens have a vet visit tomorrow and if they pass they will be put up for adoption, so I could use some extra kitten cuddle time tonight. Nimbus the Stormbringer is a beautiful, playful boy and Drizella the Sea-Witch is a total snugglecat, so they shouldn't have any trouble getting snapped up quickly.
