Finally, lunch. Love these things, had this and a grapefruit
This was one of those weird meals where I just wasnt hungry at all. Which means that breakfast did its job!
I just wanted more of a snack, so this is a Dr Pragers Spinach patty (from whole foods, 9 carbs) with 1oz of Dubliner cheese melted on top.
Breakfast! This is the link to the original recipe, but I made changes to make it more Zone-ish http://crockpot365.blogspot.com/2009/03/crockpot-mexican-breakfast-casserole.html what I changed is in bold
4 corn tortillas
4 eggs & 1/2 a carton of whites
2 cups 2% milk
1 cup shredded Mexican blend cheese
1 (7-ounce) can green chiles, drained
1/2 red bell pepper, seeded and diced
1/2 small onion, diced
1/2 cup corn (I used canned)
1 cup sliced mushrooms
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt & 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
I used small oval slow cooker. Pam the inside of your stoneware. Put 1 corn tortilla in the bottom of your cooker. In a very large mixing bowl, combine all of the other ingredients, and whisk together. Pour about 1/3 of the mixture into the slow cooker, on top of the tortillas. Put in another layer of tortilla, and top with the remaining egg mixture. Top with another corn tortilla.
Cover and cook on low for 6-7 hours, or on high for 4-5. I cooked for 7 hours, and it was perfect, even reheated. I also had 1/2 a grapefruit for carbs and added some guacamole for fat
Sweet Potato Chips- sliced thin and sprinkled with olive oil, salt, pepper, chile powder and a little bit of parmesan cheese. Baked at 450 for 15 or so minutes, turning once
Cajun Shrimp - saute butter and garlic and cajun seasoning. add 1 can tomatoes with italian seasoning and 1/2 a beer and the shrimp. Nick and Collin had it over rice, but lower carb for me, so no rice. the potatoes counted as my carb :)
Asparagus and Shitake Mushrooms cooked in a ziplock steam bag with some steak sauce in the bag. yum!
I guess my food doesnt always look amazing- I’ve never thought about before I started taking pictures of it! But, it tastes really great!
I had my post-workout drink, and then a few hours later a Balance bar on the way to an appointment.
Lunch I was eating out, and since I’m picky about the meat I eat, I usually order a seafood or vegetarian option. Lunch was a veggie sandwich; Spinach, Portabella, Goat Cheese, Roasted Peppers and Zucchini. I took the bun off, and cut about 1/4 of it into small pieces and used it as croutons (so ate lunch with a fork). I don’t think its really zone, but I know there was protein in the goat cheese and carbs & fat in the veggies and bread so I’m just going to say this one is iffy. Pretty close if not!
And, I bought an amazing looking cupcake for dessert tonight! So excited to eat it!
Breakfast- egg whites with 1 whole egg, salsa and avacado and grapefruit. Pre-workout breakfast before Crossfit.
Nick was home sick today, and he ate the same thing. But, he gets more carbs then I do, so he added 1/2 a bagel with cream cheese to the meal.
Snack. 1/4 of a graham cracker with almond butter (that’s what the kiddo had for a snack and it looked too good!) 1 apple with 1oz of Manchengo Cheese. I have a food scale that I use sometimes when I’m not sure of the serving size. Surprisingly, I’m usually low when I guess, so its beneficial for me :).
PF Changs. Lettuce wraps, Ahi Tuna 1 glass of red wine, hot & sour soup. And a mini lemon dessert split with the hubs. date night. Every tuesday, crossfit then dinner :). Pre-workout snack was 1/2 a Pecan Pie Lara bar and 10 grams worth of vanilla protein mixed with water.
Breakfast! Coffee with Soy creamer with 1/2 a Balance bar at 7:30am on the way to drop the kiddo at school.
9:30 am is honeydew, cottage cheese, nutmeg and walnuts
