Day 3 vegetables...
I ate well today, I heated up a very generous portion of the vegetables Anna for breakfast with some very good coffee and some fruit.
For lunch I dined very simply with some cucumber tomato salad.
It was a hot day in NY so I had little appetite for dinner despite a serious gym visit. I made a salad. A head of romaine, a head of Radicchio, a bag of Trader Joe's organic spring mix and dressing. This salad filled my largest mixing bowl. My favorite thing on top of a salad with vinegar is poached eggs and lardons. I was tempted, I had some house-cured pancetta that I could have easily crisped and tossed with those greens and eggs, but when I pushed them aside I came across a container of pitted black olives so I used those for my salt fix. In my entire life I don't think I have ever had a salad this large.
My nutritional chart checked out, my A and C were off the charts and everything else was in a healthy range.
I may make an effort to pack in a few more calories tomorrow. I typically consume about 2,600 a day and this is a big drop, but I look good.
