Bane Of My Existence – Smash Burger Fries

by dietingfashions on September 19, 2010

Yes they are damn good. The seasoning makes it worth gaining 5 extra pounds. The fries are delicious. Crunchy and tasty. I think it’s sprinkled with rosemary and a something that makes it sweet but not too sweet.

BUT you can feel it going to your arteries instantly. It is something I like to indulge eating once in a while. Just not every week. Possibly it could be a cheat for each month.

Day 14

Day 14 Fresh Diet Menu

 

 Breakfast: The burrito was not rolled up. It was a 1/4 slice of green tortilla that was topped with eggs, bell peppers and cheese. Though it was good, I thought it was more like a pizza then burrito.

Lunch: I had a late lunch, almost at 4 pm. The salad was alot. I thought it had too much mozzarella. I felt like it was nothing but cheese and pasta and not enough baby spinach. It filled me up fine.

Dinner: I had cheated a snacked on my 2 year old’s pizza. It was 1 slice. Then 1 hour later I had the dinner. It tasted okay. The grilled chicken was a lot thicker than usual. The sauce had a bit of spice. What I love are the portabellas which is in most of my meals. The asparagus was good but the stalks are not large, very thin.

Snacks: I skipped these snacks because I already had the pizza.

Overall: Today’s meal was average. Everything is edible thank goodness but these are not the foods I would normally eat. I am not a big salad fan for lunch nor would I each sandwiches for lunch. I am realizing I might have to change my eating habits after this trial diet is over. There are some foods that are really good for my body.

Day 13 Fresh Diet

 

Breakfast: I love egg bakes! It’s my new favorite thing. I think it is easy to make too. I wish I have the ability to cook well. I do not have the patience. And I am the only eating these foods. My two kids are too young and my husband is picky beyond words.

Lunch: Lovely lunch. I felt like it was an English meal. The food was light yet filling. All I was missing was a pot of tea. Unfortunately my baby lettuce salad on the side included a little bug on the leaves. It just left me shuddering to think if there were any other bugs in it.

Dinner: Vegitarian? wow… those meatballs were the best I have ever tasted! It was super soft and moist. It just melted in my mouth.

Snack 1: The skewers were delicous. It was tough but it was tender. Just okay.

Snack 2: Did not eat last night. I have the peanut butter cheesecake from the night before.

Overall: Continually loving the meals. Especially the part where I don’t have to cook anything.

Day 12

 

 Breakfast: I do not remember breakfast except scarfing it down in minutes. I was starving when I woke up.

Lunch: Skirt steak salad… chewy. Lettuce was wilting a bit. Had onions on salad that gave a kick… but was a bit too much of a kick.

Dinner: I went to Luby’s. So the turkey sausages are left for another time. Luby’s on the other hand… was plentiful and hit the spot for me.

Snack 1 and Snack 2: Have not yet been eaten.

Overall: Yes I cheated at dinner. i do feel like I need to cheat 1 day a week. When I know I’m on a diet, the diet itself won’t work. Sometimes cheating helps with progress. (or am I just deluding myself?)

Day 11

Day 11

 

Breakfast: The portions are getting larger. In a way. I was pretty full after breakfast. I was shocked that I chosed a meal with goat cheese. I am not a very adventurous eater. In my mind I am. But reality tells a different story. The goat cheese was a lot more pungent… a stronger taste. It wasn’t bad with all the other flavorings like eggs, sun dried tomato etc.

Lunch: Whoa.. another huge sandwich! It was the size of the whole plastic container! I love BBQ pulled pork. I can make that pretty easily. This recipe had mushrooms that added a juicy, sweet texture with the BBQ pork mix. Different.

Dinner: Crab cakes were delish! I don’t like the broccoli mash. It’s the 2nd or 3rd time I had it and it hasn’t grown on me.

Snack 1: Beef ravioli… umm umm good. every bite was cherished.

Snack 2: Pita pocket of curried egg salad… I wouldn’t have ever thought I like this. Tasted like a devil’s egg sandwich.
