Bane Of My Existence – Smash Burger Fries

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

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

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.
