Pumpkin Spice Protein Latte!!!!
1C Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
1C strong brewed coffee-chilled
1/2C pumpkin puree
Sugar Free Caramel Syrup (to taste)
1/8 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1/2 C egg whites
1T of HWC
scoop zNatural unflavored whey powder
1/2 tsp xanthum gum (optional, but makes it really creamy)
any additional sweeteners to your taste-I was looking for dessert so I added a small bit of stevia and xylitol
Put it in the blender, fantastic!
UC is getting worse, kicking up the meds, hope to turn it around.
Yesterday was a very good day. Weird, because I just got pissed that I have been at least 80% Primal for over a year, and 90%SANE for over a month and I swear I am getting bigger. I have not gotten on the scale or measured, keeping true to my pledge to keep away till November. But I just decided to let go of the rules and eat what I felt like eating.
So I had...
Breakfast: a Strawberry breakfast smoothie, no veggies, YUMMY!
Snack: I drank a liter and a half of water into which I had brewed 3 green tea bags and added stevia.
Lunch: Natural Peanut butter, with raspberry sugar free syrup (tastes like PB & J), with some raw pecans, and one square of a club cracker (after I bit into it I decided it wasn't what I wanted so I tossed the rest of it).
Snack: Pumpkin Spice Latte
Dinner: while cooking dinner I munched on raw carrots, radishes, and cauliflower dipped into homemade ranch dressing, then had about 8 oz of grass fed beef that I cooked with fresh salsa, and a very small piece of homemade fried bread (2.5" diameter)
Not totally Primal, not totally SANE, but it felt good, I was not obsessed with food all day, I was not hungry, and I was not stuffed.
I am going to continue on this path and see where it gets me, at least mentally it is much less stressful!
