I think I'm starting to get the hang of this.
Yesterday was jam packed with dates, meetings, and errands. I didn't have to think too long about packing up food for the day. I ended up taking our big insulated trader joes tote full of whole30 approved lunch and snacks. Day went pretty smooth. Nobody was hungry, nobody complained about the food that was offered. Win!
Charlotte spent the night at the neighbors and had cereal for breakfast. When she came home, I was eating a pretty yummy salad dressed with tahini sauce from Trader Joes, sliced cucumbers, and chopped rotisserie chicken. I tried putting sunflower seeds on it, but I think my stash had gone bad so I had to toss them. Charlotte tried to steal a bite and asked if I'd make her a salad too.
Charlotte asked me to make her a SALAD. With LETTUCE. GREEN STUFF.
I was out of lettuce but I made her a salad of cucumbers and chicken with the sauce. She scarfed it down. She also scarfed down strawberries, an Rx bar, and some raw almonds. These kids never used to eat this much.
The last couple days felt a lot better with the cravings as well. Normally I want to eat until the second I go to bed. I just keep hunting for snacks. I made salmon, roasted potatoes and asparagus for dinner (which both kids ate most of!) and I think it was satisfying enough that I didn't feel the need to keep grazing through my kitchen.
Dinner tonight was McMenamins. They were super nice and accommodating and I had a pretty tasty dinner. I was super tempted to have french fries, but they cook them in canola oil and I only have a few more days. 1 more week!
