curried along

2 May

I should really learn that when I promise to do a food post, I need to actually do it!

Breakfast isn’t pictured, because I didn’t think I’d like enough to eat, but lo and behold, I enjoyed it – it was oatmeal! I heated up some milk with 1/2 of a (defrosted) banana in it, added the oats and cooked for a few minutes. I topped it off with some pure Quebec maple syrup and some chopped walnuts. I swear, it tasted like banana bread and was really freaking good. One food hangup down, another 30ish to go!

I went to the gym, came home and decided to perfect the smoothie. I did better…kind of. I decided to omit the spinach until I’ve gotten the hang of it, and just did milk, yogurt, 1/2 a frozen banana, some frozen blueberries, True Protein milk isolate and mango flavoring. This one came out as beige with lavender tinges, didn’t really taste like anything and was so thick I could eat it with a spoon. However, I wasn’t smart enough to do that, and instead took my sweet time drinking it. After an hour, I’d downed two-thirds of it, and gave up.


Lunch was a spinach salad with mushrooms, carrots, green pepper and chopped walnuts, topped with herb-baked flounder and balsamic vinegar. Surprisingly, the combo worked and was both tasty and enjoyable. I ate it with 2 thin slices of roasted turkey and a half slice of Colby Jack.

Dinner was not so satisfying – we had Mushroom-Spinach with Coconut curry, Jyoti Jaipur Karhi, brown rice and roasted carrots, celery and green peppers. The mushroom-spinach curry was flavorful, but something was missing to make it great, and the Jaipur Karhi was way too salty, so I gave my portion to E.

I could tell I wasn’t satisfied, because less than 30 minutes later, I reached for a frozen one of these.

I gave half to E, and an hour later, reached for raw almonds, a piece of dried mango, and a sugar-free jello.
I couldn’t stop eating, and I didn’t want to mess up my day any more than I already had, so I called it a night and went to sleep. I finally tracked this morning, and strangely, I was in the low end of my range for the day. No wonder I was so hungry!

    You’re really getting the hang of the smoothie thing!

    Heck, I’m just proud of you for overcoming your fear of protein powder.
