I had a couple things today that didn't quite meet the sugar-free standard. The bread in both my lunch and supper had added sugar. But knowing how much sugar actually goes into a loaf of bread (around 1 TBSP per loaf ), I don't feel too bad about how I did today.
Breakfast: I remembered today that I have frozen berries in the freezer. I'm really glad I did! The berries were so much better in my morning oatmeal. The cinnamon/vanilla version was good, but reminded me of a winter and made me want to hibernate. The berry version tastes summery and light. And, if you were trying to convince kids to eat oatmeal by making it a neon color (ala Trix yogurt- that stuff is weird), berries accomplish that as well. My blueberry version this morning was a deep purple.
Oatmeal with pecan milk & blueberries
Coffee with whole milk
Lunch: I was lucky enough to get to a favorite eating spot- the St. Peter Food Co-op & Deli. (My husband calls it healthy hippie food.) It was delicious!
Greek sandwich (whole wheat bread, cheese, spinach, carrots, tomato, artichoke hearts, & olives)
Two-bean Balsamic Salad (black beans, chickpeas, garlic, red onion, parsley, olive oil & balsamic vinegar)
Basmati Salad (rice, red pepper, celery, raisins, cashews, & spices)
Hummus and pita chips
Dinner: I was actually hungry for meat, odd for me. I figure my body either need the protein or the iron.
Locally produced cheddar cheese
Garlic summer sausage
All in all, not more than a few grams of added sugars so not too bad a day.
