Breakfast (before work): cooked fava beans, leftover cheeseburger with pickles, iceberg lettuce, mayonnaise, ketchup. Breakfast of champions. It held me all day.
Lunch (2:30 pm): leftover french fries with ketchup, leftover chicken salad. This was not as sustaining as the previous meal.
Dinner: A big salad with iceberg lettuce and herb salad mix, parsley, scallions, and shredded carrots, with hard-boiled eggs, dried cherries, and sliced almonds. Homemade honey-mustard dressing. Some white bakery bread and butter on the side. As always while grating carrots, I grated my knuckle, and proceeded to bleed slightly onto the boiled eggs as I was peeling them. I rinsed them off.
Breakfast: coffee with whipped cream on it, little dish of mixed dried cherries and sliced almonds, two little slices of toasted baguette with butter. I was instantly hungry again but oh well. It sounds like a good breakfast when I describe it.
Lunch: toasted hamburger bun with butter and jam (don't knock it till you've tried it; soft and pillowy, this can rival an English muffin in flavor); carrot and celery sticks; small dish of chocolate granola with milk.
Shopping (Safeway): beef jerky, salt, ice cream salt, Peets coffee (decaf), ice, 2 large containers of Chobani Greek yogurt (1 strawberry, 1 honey), Dobie sponges, 3 pink grapefruit, ginger root, 2 bunches collard greens, organic bananas, 1 organic tomato, 2 organic yellow onions, 1 package cremini mushrooms, 2 packages oyster mushrooms, organic "poultry seasoning" herbs (fresh thyme, sage and rosemary), strawberries, Rondele garlic & herb soft cheese, flatbread crackers. $67. (Co-op): lemon juice, frozen peaches, 3 packages pea shoots. $19.
Dinner: My husband and I had been planning to go to the movies, but canceled our plan because he was sick with this still-unresolved sinus infection. So we ordered in Domino's: 2 medium pizzas, one with spinach and mushroom, the other with mushroom and tomato. And binge-watched The Amazing Race, season 5, with my daughter.
Snacks: 3 other cups of coffee, 2 regular, 1 decaf, with half and half. Cup of Pero with half and half and honey. Small dish of maple granola with milk in the afternoon before yoga class, because I was starving. A Godiva milk chocolate bar after pizza (my mom sent us a box of Godiva bars for Valentine's Day). Godiva chocolate really is good: even the plain milk chocolate was perfectly wonderful.
Breakfast (before work): Leftover pizza, one slice spinach-and-mushroom, one slice mushroom-and-tomato; celery sticks.
Lunch (after work at 2:30): small bowl of Cascadian Farm multigrain squares with milk; 3 Safeway Open Nature flatbread crackers with garlic & herb Rondele cheese; celery sticks.
Snacks: 5 cups of coffee, 3 regular, 2 decaf, with half and half, and one with whipped cream on top. I had the extra cup of coffee because I developed sudden abdominal pain in the late afternoon, lay down, fell asleep, and then needed something to wake me up when I reemerged from this random incident at about 5:15. Glass of sherry after dinner.
