Day 2- Another Hard Day

Well, day 2 is almost over. I’ve got to admit I’ve been a little weak today. I’m feeling a little better now that I had a pretty filling dinner. The soup I made tonight was soo good. Keep reading to see what I made.

I started out this morning with a cup of hot Sugar Cookie Slay Ride Herbal caffeine free tea. It smells soo good!

Breakfast was the Carrot Mango, and Herb smoothie. You can find the recipe here. I used mint and it turned out to be surprisingly good!

I used my emersion blender this morning and it blended it very well.

The smoothie kept me full for a few hours but once the hunger hit me I started getting my headache back and wasn’t feeling too great. Lunch was a big ole salad. IMAG0595

I went to Conway to visit my sister today so as soon as I got back I went for the the trail mix and a small glass of Pom juice. The trail mix has assorted nuts and dried fruit.

By the time 5:00 came a long I was starving. I wanted to make something a little more filling and Kyle was missing meat. So I went for a creamy mushroom soup. I don’t have the exact recipe since I just threw it together on the spot but I will be sure to measure out the ingredients next time to share with you. It was well worth making again and again. I do have to confess I cheated a little. I added some wild rice that I got at the locally grown market. I’m technically not suppose to have grains just yet but after how I felt today I needed a little something more.

I started out chopping up onions and two types of mushrooms, portabella and shitake. I also minced 3 garlic cloves.

I sautéed the veggies in olive oil.

I added vegetable broth and a few splashes of Almond milk. I seasoned it with salt, pepper, thyme, and Italian seasoning mix.

I then spooned out a few of the mushrooms and set them aside. I took my emersion blender and blended away. I poured the cooked rice in and boiled for about 10 min. I then poured the mushrooms back in to garnish.

I think it was a hit. Kyle had seconds.

I will probably end up in the melon bowl that’s in the frig for dessert.
