I'm good so far! We had coffee at Tim Horton's this morning, but only because we had a gift card. smile.gif
Tonight, I'm going to dinner with a bunch of moms and I already told them that I'm going for company not food. This is mostly because I'm not spending money and I'm counting calories.

Yay I cooked at home tonight! Veggie stir fry - very tasty. We should be on track for the rest of the week, as hopefully will continue feeling better.

Tonight I'm making a birthday dinner for my mother-in-law. I just got a pasta maker so I'm making homemade spaghetti with a salad and homemade dressing. The salad is going to be some cabbage, shredded carrot, kale, and red onion. The dressing is 3/4 c olive oil, 3 tbsp apple cider vinegar, 1 tbsp Bragg's liquid aminos, juice of half a lemon, salt, pepper, and some paprika. I'm not a huge salad fan so I'm hoping it turns out okay...

Breakfast was on a gift card today - coffee, mini doughnuts for the kids (one had an eye dr appt), and a banana for me.
Lunch was italians for the kids, venison with a side of broccoli topped with cheddar cheese for me and DH.
Dinner was whole grain spaghetti and sauce from a jar that I happened to have in the cupboard.

Mamita - if you have tons of green smoothie, you should refrigerate one for the next day and freeze for the third and fourth day of smoothie. They lose nutrition and go bad quickly.

Today and tomorrow I work 12 hour shifts. I made egg/cheese/bacon on english muffins this morning, cucmber/celery/spinach/apple juice for lunch/snacks (2L) and will have what's left of the baked bean quintet for dinner.

How fast do they lose nutrients? I drank all the smoothie from the one night, in one night! LOL It was about 4 glasses of smoothie and I drank it all pretty fast! I'm not sure what I could freeze it either. Breast milk storage bags? hahaha
