Yesterday I realized when I got to work that I forgot to pack some dark chocolate. The only treat I get all day. That I was looking forward to all day. AHHHH! Sorry, but apples just don't cut it. On the plus side, I wasn't as starving day 2 as I was the first day.
I was, however, worried that I would be unable to refuse a leftover Easter cupcake at my parents when I dropped Parker off before work. I actually mulled over this scenario the whole drive there and decided that I literally have no will power and would eat the cupcake. Which lead to a fantasy of biting into the strawberry cupcake, what it would taste like, the smooth buttercream, dense cake.
So that just got awkward... Anyway, this whole scene that I worked up in my head did not occur so the cleanse is saved!
Tuesday Day 2
Breakfast: Egg over easy cooked in olive oil on whole grain toast. Carmel Rooibos tea with lemon
Snack: I planned on having a smoothie but didn't have time
Lunch: Brussels Spouts Fried Rice with Crispy Cauliflower from Serious Eats. This was quite good, but did require some hot sauce in my opinion. The good thing about Asian food is you don't feel like you are missing out on something (i.e. CHEESE).
Snack (2pm): Roasted Madras Chickpeas and chai tea with honey
Snack(4:30pm): Half a peanut butter and jam sandwich on whole grain bread
Dinner: Leftover whole wheat pasta with Braised Broccoli and Tomato Sauce and an apple. I think the sauce is better the second day.
Snack: Egyptian Licorice Tea. This tea is delicious and naturally sweet. It's my fave.
