Day 7 – Week 1 End

I may have jinxed myself yesterday when I said I had eaten 3 meals a day. Because today, I only had breakfast. The rest of the day was kind of lost in the shuffle of creating next week’s meal plan, grocery shopping, and work. For breakfast, I had egg and rice pancakes, which I was […]

Day 6

It’s day 6, and I have had 3 meals a day this whole week. That has got to be some kind of record! For breakfast, I was in a bit of rush, so I didn’t have time to cook more rice (again) so I just had a fried egg. It really is my favorite way […]

My breakfast looked so boring and all white today.  I don’t think I’ve ever had a meal quite so overwhelmingly monochromatic. Thankfully it looked a little better with the egg up open to reveal the perfectly […]

Day 3: Dinner

I procrastinated making dinner for a while. Today’s dinner of black beans and rice was probably the easiest to put together. All I did was put the pre-cooked rice and black beans in the microwave for a minute and a half and I’m done. But dinners are usually my weak point. Usually, because after work […]
