It’s hard to believe there are only two more days left of October Unprocessed. It has gone by fast so far, but I’m definitely not sticking to this challenge like I did last year. I am allowing myself to cheat a lot more, which in turn causes sugar cravings. Chocolate chips have always been my weakness. Once I start eating them, I start to crave more. Also, I was much more strict last year about not eating pasta and breads. So with Halloween only two days away, let’s see if I can refrain from the candy!! Stay tuned for my overall results next week once this challenge is over. 🙂 Here are the foods I ate over the past week:
Day 22: Wednesday, October 22
For breakfast, I had an English muffin that my daughter didn’t finish. I also had some orange juice and an apple.
For lunch, I had some leftover chicken noodle soup.
I snacked on a few chocolate chips.
For dinner, I made chicken, broccoli, and fettuccine in a homemade Alfredo Sauce.
Day 23: Thursday, October 23
While making my daughter’s lunch, I had a slice of turkey. I had some orange juice and the leftover English muffin that my daughter didn’t eat.
For breakfast, I made a Pineapple Orange Banana Green Smoothie.
For lunch, I had some leftover chicken, fettuccine, broccoli alfredo.
For a snack, I had a cheese stick and a little piece of cookie pizza that my daughters had made.
For dinner, I made a frittata with roasted potatoes, eggs, onion, garlic, olive oil, salt, pepper, and spinach. My family was not a fan. Unfortunately, I didn’t like it much either, but I ate it anyway.
I had a little bit of chicken noodle soup as well.
