Raw Food Day 8

The beginning of week two didn't get off to a great start, planning-wise - I would have preferred to go to the store on the weekend but I was gone. So we got what we needed for today at lunchtime.

Breakfast: Big tangerine, a handful of nuts
Lunch: Salad with half an avocado
Snack: Whole Grain Odwalla (the grain was brown rice I believe), 2 dates, a dried hibiscus or two

Dinner:

Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto

Zucchini "pasta" with sun-dried tomato pesto. (I'm getting good at cutting zucchini noodles without a mandolin!)

This morning at the all-staff meeting at work there were bagels and cream cheese. I feel like I am getting better at saying no to such things; I am finding that it is not the end of the world if I cannot eat something that might be tasty.

I'm also finding that coffee makes me feel weird. It might be because I'm not eating as much, or that what I am eating doesn't "soak up" the coffee, but I kind of feel lightheaded now. I should probably cut down or stop drinking it for a bit, but it does make me stop yawning in the mornings, which is nice.

Valentine's Day is coming up - this is the first year in several that I haven't had any Conversation Hearts (which is just as well as Lisa told me they changed their recipe this year and they're not nearly as good). If you've read my LJ in years past you know I usually get two or three bags of Hearts every Valentine's season.

V-Day should also probably involve some kind of romantic dinner. I'll have to see what I can find...
