I'm sure Day Nine's meals were yummy, might go back to them another time but for now, moving on to Day Ten.
This morning I got up early (5:30) and started planning my day. Since I'm never one to leave fresh foods & vegetables behind, the refrigerator here was bare. First up, a grocery store run. I decided to loosely follow the Kickstart menus, filling in with leftovers when possible. I had a little at happy hour, still ended up a bit low in calories but I am full and don't want anything else.
Food: Day Ten, Vegan Kickstart
Breakfast: Fruit Salad and whole-grain toast with apple butter
I'm not sure who calculated the serving size of the Penne al Forno, but it made a HUGE amount! No way is it only 4 servings, I am dividing it into 8 and that's still a generous plateful! The flavors were very good, love the addition of garlic-stuffed olives, but overall a bit dry; next time I'd use more sauce. Chip wasn't impressed, said he wasn't accustomed to having so many veggies in his pasta, but he ate a little bowl anyway. The collards were, well, what can you say about greens? They're good for you, so you eat past the slight bitterness and strong flavor.
Here's my food journal:
Fitness: Loki and I took a couple of short walks but nothing too intense. Still feeling kinda blah, hoping some extra sleep will help. Off to bed with a good book and a cup of sleepytime tea. I'm such a party animal! Goodnight.
