21 Day Fix Day 3 - First Treat Day

Yesterday was Day 3 of the 21 Day Fix Challenge - still going strong!  It was the first day I'd planned in a treat, which (not a surprise to those of you who know me) was a glass of wine.  Unsweetened almond milk vs a nice glass of vino as a brainer.

Breakfast - 8 AM

1.5 Red, 1 Purple, 1 teaspoon

So the day started off again with Shakeology, this time a full scoop.  Couldn't tell a real difference between a full and a half except it was a little richer tasting.  I went a little of the Reese's route with a teaspoon of peanut butter in with the usual 1/2 red container plain Greek yogurt and 1/2 banana, and the freebie coffee and ice.  It's a great way to get my morning coffee in, especially since we are in the full heat of summer in south Florida!

Morning Snack - 11 AM

.5 Green

One of my favorite snacks for crunchy cravings - sliced mini cucumbers tossed in a mixture of rice vinegar, a tiny dash of soy sauce, and sriracha, topped with sesame seeds (I went light on my dressing at lunch, same category).

Lunch - 12 PM

2 Green, 1 Red, 1 Orange, 1 Blue

As the snack was just veggies, I was ready for lunch right at 12.  Had the same salad I did Monday, but less dressing so the sesame oil didn't punch me in the face as much!

Afternoon Snack - 4:30 PM

1 Purple, 1 Yellow, .5 Red

We've been eating dinner fairly late (usually happens when I start trying new stuff, I'm not a fast cook) so I wanted to bulk up the afternoon snack a bit.  Plus I've found that more than 1 protein serving in a meal is a large amount of meat, so I wanted to move some of the serving portions to my snacks.  Boars Head low sodium skinless turkey is the perfect way to do that!

Dinner - 8 PM

1 Red, 1 Green, 1 Yellow (treat beverage)

Looked forward to this all day!  I planned steak night and a glass of wine a couple days in as a treat, and it was a nice change to make a super simple meal instead of a recipe.  Grilled flank steak, roasted broccoli and cauliflower, and wine.  I savored every sip, too, and didn't miss the potatoes at all!
