Oh. My. God.
It was so delicious! I'm sure I could have come up with something a little more creative than just, uh, squeezing it directly into my mouth. But that's exactly what I did. And I loved every little squeeze.
I also want to say "squoze" as the past tense form of squeeze. I know it's not correct, but it's way more fun than "squeezed." ...And now that word no longer sounds like an actual word because I've said it so many times. Does that ever happen to you? Why am I allowed to have a blog?
Anyway, here is a picture of the goodness:
This is some tasty stuff, people.
Dinner tonight was a stir-fry packed with veggies and chicken with garlic, ginger and crushed red pepper. It was my first time having chicken but I cut it into WLS-sized bites, then marinated it so it was juicy and easy to handle. I had about a cup and ate slowly and carefully, chewing each bite to a paste...success! I felt great afterwards--not too full, but very satisfied--and it was reeeeally good. Today was a great food day...I met my protein goal (with the careful addition of the aforementioned chocolate almond butter) and stayed under on my calories, fat, sugar, carbs and sodium. I also managed to take in about 70 ounces of water and walked around the building at work for a total of a mile and a half.
|Dinner of champions!!! (And me)|
Oooooookay, I think it's time to hang it up. Just one last thing--and yes, I'm asking for yet MORE advice from you guys--the BF and I are going to Chicago on Monday, and the friend we're staying with is planning for us to go out to a pub/grill for dinner. Anything that jumps out to you as good idea for something I could order off a standard bar/grill-type menu? Maybe chicken strips and pick off some of the breading? Chili? Club sandwich minus the bread? Fish & chips minus the chips?
I know, I know...I'm very demanding.
Good night, you crazy internet pals!
