Day Four

I woke up and had a glass of ice water then I completed my 10 minute morning exercise routine. For breakfast I had steel cut oats, yogurt, and two cups of coffee. After breakfast I took a 20 minute walk with the dog which came to be one mile.

For lunch I had a banana sandwich. Never heard of that one?? Well it is a southern favorite and don’t knock it until you have tried it! It’s two pieces of bread, I used whole wheat with olive oil mayo and you just slice the banana and there you have one great sandwich. With the sandwich I had plain potato chips. When you look at the label (Lay’s brand) there are three ingredients: potatoes, vegetable oil, and salt. I love a good salty plain chip! I also had an apple, one piece of dark chocolate, and a glass of water.

For afternoon snack I had three whole grain crackers with three slices of extra sharp cheddar cheese and handful of almonds.

For dinner I had grilled shrimp which had been marinated in olive oil and smoked Spanish paprika. A bean salad with cannellini beans, grated roma tomato, minced red onion and green bell pepper, green onion, with olive oil, salt, and white wine vinegar. I also made a fennel and apple slaw with an olive oil, white wine vinegar, honey and orange juice vinaigrette, also cantaloupe and a glass of water.

After dinner we walked for about 35 minutes for a total of 1.6 miles. My 9 pm snack was a tablespoon of peanut butter.
