A recap and Friday plan

Food tally for Thursday, a completely wheat-free day (do you realize that that makes 3 wheat-free days this week? yes, I'm talking more to myself than to you lol):

*nearly 1 litre of green smoothie

I don't think I had anything else during the morning. I need to get into a habit of writing these things down!

*full bowl of romaine salad with Italian dressing
*Amy's gluten-free bean and rice burrito with salsa
*a scoop of Rice Dream vanilla ice cream with a little chocolate syrup
*corn Tostitos and Daiya cheddar
*two celery sticks with peanut butter and raisins

*shepherd's pie (ground beef, corn, potatoes with Becel vegan/gluten-free margarine and almond milk)
*baby carrots

*a glass of strawberry almond milk

I think that was it. I'd like to sit down sometime and analyze some of these days of mine, figure out calories and nutrients. I suspect I'm not getting enough nutrients, which a multivitamin can help with, but it would be good to plan so that at least over the course of a few days, all nutrient counts are taken care of. (Does it show that I've thought to be a nutritionist/dietitian?)

Today, I'm all congested and coughing stuff up. Can you have detox symptoms when you're still eating some junk, like chocolate syrup? lol

Not sure what my plan is today. We're going to be making a vegan gluten-free cake this afternoon, but I was also hoping to make a vegan, but not gluten-free, lava cake. Hm... I have someone coming over who is attempting to go wheat-free, too, and who loves chocolate like I do--if today's a wheat-free day, it wouldn't be very nice of me to make a lava cake in front of her, now would it? ;) I'll go wheat-free at least until then. lol

  1. Good job going wheat-free. As far as I know, you can still have detox symptoms, even if you're consuming chocolate syrup. Just the fact that you've been going without wheat could bring on those symptoms, which should eventually pass. Or, it could be the fact that you caught something; it is that time of year.
