Day 3

So today was great. I can feel myself becoming more energized as well as happier. I would be even happier if I had a white chocolate kit kat but that is neither here nor there. So here comes the meals for today:
This is my smiley face breakfast! Two pieces of GF cinnamon raisen bread with vegan butter and a banana.

For Lunch I got to have leftover pizza (again), corn chips and sugar snap peas. We are now officially out of pizza so this wont be showing up agian. Although I didn't really get sick of it.

For dinner we had mushrooms and garlic greens over broiled tofu, polenta and tomatoes with the last of the garlic mashed potatoes. This recipe came straight out of the book so I will put it below because it was YUMMY!

So like I said, today went very well. I didn't really find myself craving much and about mid afternoon I had a bowl of rice chex with honey and soy milk. I did get a chance to weigh myself today and I am happy to say that I am almost down a full pound from when I started!! YEAH! Anyway here is the reciepe for what we had for dinner.
