Let me count the ways...

Tried Emily's suggestion for sweet eggwhites this morning alongside my berries and nuts for breakfast. Scrambled 3 of them with some mixed spice and some xylitol, but... no. I am never going to love thee, eggwhites. I might just be able to tolerate you hard boiled and chopped up on my salad because I have to, but your gunky icky slimeiness is doing nothing else for me, no matter how you dress yourself up in fake sugar and spice. Begone. And xylitol, you can bugger right off too.

Love my berries, nuts and seeds though.

Planned food for the rest of today:

Lunch - spinach and romaine salad, flax and lemon juice, raw red pepper, sliced mushrooms, and chopped plain tofu (needs using up).
Dinner - baked sweet potato, shredded cabbage greens, brussel sprouts, steamed broccoli.
No snacks of any kind because I've eaten everything else on the plan, including my yoghurt which ended up being a 1am snack because I was hungry as well as wide awake.

I might not make all that though. Lunch is low in cals because I may have to eat with friends again tonight, but if I do I will at least made 72% vits and 78% minerals.

So MUCH food. The sheer volume of it... This might go some way towards explaining why I am craving Japanese food at the moment, even though I don't eat fish and have never actually eaten proper Japanese at all. It's just the idea of those little delicate pieces of art on the plate, so much more tempting to me right now than the ever-so-good-for-me veggie mountain.

Here is the estimated crunch anyway. And no Brewer's Yeast to bump things up!

I'm sorry the eggwhites didn't work out for you. No need to ever eat them though - I'm sure you'll figure out a way to get protein that you love, rather than barely tolerate.

Hahaha... can definitely relate. Some nights I come home and have to have a glass of wine first before even feeling like munching through dinner!
