Considering that I was on a mini-vacation from Friday to Tuesday my eats were all over the place. Saturday was Seamus’ vet visit and I was on the road most of the day. Sunday we celebrated my cousin’s daughter graduation from High School and her basic training send off. Monday and Tuesday I spent all day painting and re-decorating my main bathroom. This made getting in my regular meals quite a challenge. Also I made it through the first two weeks of limited carbs so now I am moving on to a little higher carb count and finding the balance of the right carb zone my body can handle before it starts to gain. So you will see a little more good carbs added back in. Yeah for some fruit!
Breakfast: At Seamus’ vet appointment I found out he gained one pound over the year so he is going to boot camp. So morning walks are going to be added and our afternoon walks will be longer, so my lack of functioning in the morning means I am sticking with my trusty protein shake for now.

Snack: I am reintroducing my apple and walnuts or almonds for my midmorning snack. Oh, how I have missed my apple. (recycled pic, I didn’t have the peanut butter since I already had it with my protein shake)
Lunch: I had to grab a quick salad before getting back to painting. So the quickest thing to make is a salad with some pre-cooked chicken. I happen to really like salad so it is a win/win for me!
Dinner: This is my idea or not so “Parm” – Chicken Parm. I didn’t want to bread the chicken so I grilled some chicken with some garlic powder, onion powder, and italian seasoning. Then I placed the chicken on a pizza tray and added some low carb pasta sauce and a slice of Mozzarella cheese (fold in half and place on the diagonal to cover the chicken) then stuck under the broiler for 1-2 minutes, just until melted. Keep an eye on it, it goes quick!
I served with Steamfresh lightly sauced creamed spinach.
I am human and I have to admit I did have a slice of some Grasshopper pie that I made for the graduation party on Sunday. I have to say it was totally worth it. It is one of my favorites. It is Pistachio pudding, crushed pineapple, and Cool Whip. For the recipe click here.
