I had a great weekend – spent at my house with KO <3. I didn’t feel all that great Sunday and had blood sugar issues. When I had my afternoon snack (this will be a shocker) I opted for strawberries and about 30 minutes later I felt much better. Which to me kind of confirms that it was a blood sugar issue. I’m not overly alarmed about this, this is really the first day I’ve felt this way. It’s not helping that the menu is getting harder and harder for me to tolerate. I’m hungry when I eat, but eating itself is just not good, I have to force it. It’s weird.
One thing I am doing based on how I felt yesterday (plus the gain) is to remix my batch. I was on day 10 of the batch and that’s generally where I start seeing a decrease in effectiveness.
So when I went grocery shopping yesterday I got a few items to help me through the next week, so you’ll see a couple of new recipes (WARNING! You’ll see some rebel P2 recipes!!).
My food: 1/2 apple mid-morning and strawberries mid-afternoon. For lunch I had lettuce wraps again (lettuce, chicken, pico de gallo). No picture today because you’ve seen them before, like, on Saturday 🙂 Dinner is where the rebel came into play today…
I made a one-serving batch of “chili” with 100 grams of ground bison, about 3/4 cup chicken broth, 1/2 can organic fire roasted tomatoes, about 1/4 cup pico de gallo, cilantro, dark cocoa, garlic powder, cumin, and ancho chili powder. Originally I intended this to be dinner by itself – then I started thinking…..Hey Christy – you bought the Hebrew National 97% Fat Free Hot Dogs yesterday – you could have HCG friendly chili dogs. I mulled over it (ok, obsessed) and decided that I could do a chili dog dish. So I took 1/2 cup of the chili mix (this was about 1/3 of the entire recipe) and added it to some dry roasted miracle noodles and chopped up 2 of the 97% fat free Hebrew National hot dogs. I topped it off with some red chili flakes, more cilantro, and some halfed cherry tomatoes. According to my calculations this is around 170 calories. I’m trying the hot dogs kind of in desperation. I’m not enjoying feeling ill when I eat. The hot dogs are, by the way, 40 calories each, 1 gram of fat, and no sugars. And they taste amazing! I think this dish is my shining glory as far as HCG recipes go. This one’s a keeper, but it’s only a keeper for rebels like me. If only I hadn’t gained!
R3 VLCD Day 14 Dinner: Chili dog mac (?) I'm not sure what to call this. Any suggestions?
My plan today: lots and lots of water in case the sodium from the hot dogs is the culprit for the gain. ACV cocktails. No hot dogs 🙂
❤ Sending love and hugs your way!
