This is a continuation of my My Experience with a “7-Day No-Added-Sugar Meal Plan That’s Actually Doable.” Today’s post shall focus on Day Three, with any additional notes. (Want to catch up? Here’s the introduction, shopping and meal prep, and Day One, Day Two.)
I do feel a need to point out that the Day Three dinner was a BEAST. I actually made all of the individual elements at the end of day two after glancing ahead. There was no way I could have done that meal after working a full day. The menu for Day Three involved the following items, which I shall explain in further detail below:
- Creamy Peanut Butter Toast With Banana
- Ratatouille Frittata With Fresh Greens
- Sweet Potato Veggie Tacos With Lime Crema
Breakfast: Creamy Peanut Butter Toast With Banana
Once again, breakfast was toast. And yet, I was completely satisfied by it. It was also a Cortisol Pump Site Change Day, so I snapped the picture while I was waiting for my solu-cortef to dissolve in the sterile water.
Lunch: Ratatouille Frittata With Fresh Greens
Lunch was created with the frittata leftovers from Day One. I did laugh that they have now changed the name of it. Oh well, I enjoyed it the first day, so I shall enjoy it again on the third day. This time I topped my fresh greens with leftover edamame (dinner, night one), leftover shredded carrots (dinner, night two), and leftover diced red onions (pico de gallo). It was fun to throw the leftovers together to create new dishes with different flavor profiles.
Dinner: Sweet Potato Veggie Tacos With Lime Crema
Dinner for day three involved making several separate items:
- Roasted Sweet Potatoes
- Pico de Gallo
- Lime Crema
- Taco Assembly
This annoyed me. Why would they have us prep ahead chickpeas that do not store well but not the sweet potatoes that store incredibly well? I am thankful that I glanced ahead for this meal and knew to try to get a head start so that this meal would go more smoothly.
There is no way I could come home from work and create this entire meal. I would be too fatigued.
Roasted Sweet Potatoes
Cherry Tomato Pico de Gallo
And now that all of that is out of the way, we can create and enjoy dinner!
Concluding Thoughts for Day Three
Day three has been completed! This included Creamy Peanut Butter Toast with Banana, Ratatouille Frittata with Fresh Greens, and Sweet Potato Veggie Tacos with Lime Crema. They try to sell you on an easy breakfast and lunch with a warning that “Dinner will take a little bit longer.” I will staunchly argue they should have made you prep many things the day ahead.
And I shall end with my standard disclaimer. Once again, this is not a diet. I want to create for myself a healthy, sustainable life-style. I want to remain Clearly Alive.
