Pic of Dinner

 

So to give an idea of what and how much I typically eat at dinner.
Keep in mind that all I've had before this is 1 scoop of vega protein mixed in water.

  • Far left: medium to small sized spaghetti squash (which makes quite a large amount but it's super low in calories - 1 cup has about 80 calories) topped with cooked tomatoes and cooked mushrooms (I cooked the veggies in some water and a little bit of red wine vinegar).
  • Small glass bowl: pinto beans we slow cooked on Monday - topped with a spoonful of jalapenos
  • Small white bowl: homemade hummus - hemp seed, tahini (2 tbsp each), garlic powder, 1 can of no salt added garbanzo beans, juice from 1 lemon (ate about 3/4 of it)
  • Bigger white bowl: raw broccoli crowns (I didn't eat the whole bowl)
  • Salad - mixed greens, tomato, red onion, celery, sunflower seeds, walnuts, 1/2 avocado
  • Dessert - strawberries, shared the 16 oz container with the girls


I was very full by the time I finished dinner at around 7 PM. I had 1 carrot with tahini right at 8 PM and that's all I've had. See post below about sleep...gonna let the leptin start to work!
