Last night I made a Colorful Marinated Salad and a Butternut Squash that was great. I didn’t boil the Butternut Squash enough, so I think it was a little harder than expected.

I ran over to the Farmers Market this morning to get all the veggies and I need to keep me through the week. I also got a bunch of Beets to add to my Juicing.

Since Thursday, I’ve been walking in the mornings which is great, but I feel hungry more throughout the day. And today after my lunch of left over Colorful Marinated Salad and TWO pieces of Cheese and Onion Pizza (ugh!!!) I ate a Special K Protein Bar Double Chocolate. It says the calories from it are only 180, but all the non-natural things in the bar are what worry me.:(

Special K Protein Bar

Special K Protein Bar

Coating(sugar, partially hydrogenated palm kernel oil, cocoa precessed with alkali, whey, nonfat milk, soy lecithin, sorbitan monostearate, salt, polysorbate 60, artificial flavors), soy protein isolate….etc. These are just the first couple of ingredients. The bar sounds boxed and chemically processed, not natural at all!. Not to mention made with animal products.

I was going to have a Yogurt; because it turns out I’m not eating enough beans to get my protein and alkaline balance. Unfortunately, Mike threw out the containers because he thought they were expired. I asked him, next time look at the expiration date before you throw it away.

So I drank my second Carrot Juice…., which I love, because it tastes like I’m drinking something with sugar. It kinda kills the mid afternoon sugar urge. For dinner, I ate the remaining Colorful Marinated Salad and I’ve been snacking on the Roasted Pepper Triscuts. But I think I’m done with them, so I’m just drinking water. I hope I’m able to keep out of the Chocolate, because last night I ate two pieces of Dark Chocolate. 

Tonight we’re watching the “Hope For Haiti Now” fundraiser…. it’s really spectacular. But still waiting to get through to make my donation.!!!

To the best of my ability, I’ve been taking my Barley Max 2 times a day. I’m supposed to take the Barley Max 3 times a day, the morning, 30 minutes before lunch and again dinner. But it never fails,  I’m out of the house for one of those meals or I just forget. For example, all day Tuesday I did not take my Barley Max or drink Carrot Juice.

On the Carrot Juice front, I’m drinking at least 1 to 2 glasses regularly. I’m not going to say a day, because it’s so speratic. Because of this irregularity with the Barley Max and Carrot Juice I don’t feel like my body is processing food as quickly or filling me up as much. Because believe it or not, I got filled up drinking the juice.

Onion Pizza & Salad Lunch

Onion Pizza & Salad Lunch

For lunch, Mike wanted to get a Pizza at Tally Ho Restaurant. So I went to the post office to mail his express mail and picked up the Cheese & Onion Pizza.  I asked him to order a part of the Pizza with no Cheese on it… and they made it like that!!!!

So I mixed up my Garden Green Salad and Oil & Vinegar Dressing to go along with the Pizza. I also added the Grilled Peppers, Onions & Zucchini to the Pizza too. It was quite good.
