Breakfast this morning was a decaf coffee except no maple syrup in it today. I also didn't have any coffee cream because the grocery store was out of organic natural cream. I used whole milk and a little vanilla instead. It wasn't bad but think I will just use the milk tomorrow, the vanilla left a funny after taste.
Instead of my usual granola this morning I had oatmeal with a little coconut oil, toasted coconut and raspberries. First I tried to make it in the microwave, according to the package direction, (see picture below) it was not a success. I boiled water instead and let it sit a few minutes. It was ok, need to get used to no sugar at all though.
First snack today was a few cheesy crackers.
I found myself getting pretty hungry late in the afternoon, actually felt a little shaky. Not sure if it was in my head or related to no sugar although I am still having fruit and carbs. So second snack was pistachios and a banana.
Dinner tonight was a new recipe: Grilled Shrimp Caprese. It was delicious with a few tweaks of course and a few more the next time :) I used 1 lb of shrimp but cut the rest of the recipe back to 4 people. I also cut the pasta back to only 8oz of dry pasta and they were still 4 really big servings; could cut it back a little more. I also cut back the cheese due to many of the reviews and could have cut it back even more. I used 1/2 cup parmesan which was good but 1/2 cup mozzarella was still pretty cheesy, maybe just a little shredded on top next time. Last recommendation would be some garlic in the sauce :) The shrimp were delicious and will likely be made as appetizers another time :)
