Day 4

Well day 4 is over and what a day it was. I think I tend to be a stress eater and today was stressful. We had a lot of drama at work and all I wanted was a burger! Why you may ask? Because burgers make everything better. Anyway, I didn't find myself hungry really or struggling to not cheat. I just had a really bad craving for grease and cheese. I did not give in though so yeah for me! We also had Cubbies at church tonight and the snack was bird's nests (chow mein noodles, peanut butter, marshmallow and robin's eggs). Every time I would walk by them I would smell them (lame I know) because I couldn't have one. I was really, really tempted though. Moving on, here was todays fair:
GF Cinnamon raisin bread with vegan butter, blueberries and a banana

Leftover garlic greens, tofu and polenta, carrots with almond butter and corn chips

Tamari-glazed tofu wraps with roasted portabello mushrooms, corn and chipotle dressing (recipe below), corn chips
