Ok…So I TRIED really REALLY hard to be healthy and prep my food for the whole day a couple of days ago.
I made my protein smoothie mix, and tried to use romaine lettuce instead of bread. Let’s just say it was a complete fail…no…I cannot do it…Or at least right now I can’t eat lettuce leaves and pretend I am enjoying the meal and satisfied. I ended up caving in and destroying sweet potato fries and a grilled chicken wrap instead because I was still starving. Meal replacement shakes are a much better/easier option for me to get the nutrients I need and feel satisfied. So I am planning on having a big meal from now on once a day (preferable breakfast), and using my meal replacement/protein shakes for rest of the day. We shall see how that works out.
Howeverrr!! For those of you who think this is a great idea I will describe what I did here:
Egg and Romaine lettuce: just cooked the egg in a round pancake shape, then added avocado, tomato, cayenne pepper, and pepper.
Turkey and Romaine lettuce: horseradish honey mustard as the dressing, turkey, caramelized onions, and tomatoes.
I think the best way would be to eat them with the pieces of lettuce on either side like a sandwich. I tried to “wrap” it and the lettuce just kept falling apart.
(used that site to figure out how to do it!)
(pretty interesting way to cut a tomato!)
I will not be trying this again, but if you like it feel free! 🙂 haha
