I start my morning off with 1 piece of whole wheat toast. I normally do not put anything on it - no spreads at all. However, my friend in California makes the most WONDERFUL jam. I am ordering the sugar free one they just came out. Stay tuned for a blog and details so you can enjoy!. I also eat a great portion of fruit. On the weekend, when I have a little more time in the morning, I try to get protein in by eating an egg. I am not an oatmeal person and I do not like milk. Getting my dairy and grains in are so difficult and I struggle with that.
Mid morning I usually have a banana to help with my potassium. That' about all I can tolerate because I am always full on just one piece of toast and fruit.
When I am working, I usually just have a sandwich for lunch with a healthy side of veggies or fruit. I don't put dressing on my sandwich. I always have a fresh slice of tomato on it and that acts as my spread in terms of not having such a dry sandwich. Again, whole wheat break, low fat cheese (one slice) and turkey or chicken breast. I always toast my sandwich to get the cheese to melt and then after I put on the tomato. SO good.
By the time lunch is over, I can't even see or smell food because I am full. When I get home, I cook a more substantial meal with usually chicken (hate fish), fresh vegetables or try to come up with something creative. I try my hardest to get to at least 1000 calories this way, but it is still a struggle.
Anyway, that's the day in the life of food with Belviq!!
