Here we are again, back to phase 1. How are you feeling? I caught a cold so I am really happy I have a batch of turkey chili I made on Saturday. This chili is excellent, a meal in both phase 1 and phase 3 (with the addition of some sliced avocado or a green salad with olive oil).
We have made it half way!
Menu for phase 1, day 1
Breakfast – Overnight oatmeal with fresh blueberries. Did you know that oatmeal freezes well? I made a batch of overnight oatmeal in canning jars, stuck the extra jars in the freezer, and defrosted one overnight in the fridge. The next morning I simply reheated it in the microwave. You will need to add some extra liquid, rice milk or oat milk is good. Please reheat on low so it doesn’t boil over and make a mess in your microwave (like I did).
Snack – More blueberries (they were on sale)
Lunch – Turkey, white bean and kale soup with an orange
Snack – Tangerine
Dinner – Turkey and Vegetable Chili (everything you need in one bowl)
Soup days are perfect for when you are not feeling in tip top shape, and I love having a meal in a single bowl.
Hi Liz – I wanted to congratulate you for being so diligent in following your diet. I’m not sure I could do it at least right now. Keep up the good work 🙂
Thank you. It helps that I have 3 good friends who are doing it with me. We are supporting each other and everyone is seeing great results. So it is self motivating. We are also in the group of couples who frequently entertain each other, so food and drink is easier.
Chili, especially, sounds great right now! I freeze almost everything but never thought about freezing individual oatmeals! Great idea!!
