Well, I didn't make it to 300 grams of carbs, but I came close - and I could have if I had it in me to eat 1900 calories today. But it being a rest day, I know I'll be lucky to burn 1600 calories today, so no need to push myself to eat 1900 calories, especially if I'm not hungry.
Lunch was a repeat of Thursday's dinner - 2 oz (dry) of Orzo, 1 t. olive oil, tomatoes, garlic and a smoked mozzarella & artichoke & garlic chicken sausage. This time I had some small grape tomatoes and they seemed really sweet. This is definitely a keeper meal!
My mid afternoon snack was a slice of the cinnamon pecan bread. No photo, sorry.
Dinner was weird. Only because I was trying to hit the 300 g of carbs goal. I had some of the Foster Farms Turkey Meatballs and 1 c. brown rice. The star of the meal was 3/4 c. of sweet potatoes with 1/2 t. whipped butter and 1/2 t. brown sugar. The sweet potato has to be the perfect food...
My evening snack was the same as my mid-morning snack. 1 slice of the Honey Whole Wheat bread with 1 t. whipped butter and 1 t. raspberry jam. No photo of this repeat, sorry.
Since my healthy eating journey began, I never stayed away from carbs but it wasn't really my focus. I think this will be a big adjustment and I'll have to find the right combination of getting carbs through fruits, veggies, breads and pastas. A girl can't live on bread alone. Because that would require too much butter!
