Day Two

Smooth sailing today.

Mike made a blueberry, blackberry, banana and almond milk smoothie for breakfast! Yummy! Greek salad for lunch minus the feta cheese – I added avocado instead to give it that creamy feeling.
I snacked on kale and sweet potato chips. I’m not trying to starve myself but I haven’t been hungry. I heard that when one is on a veggie, fruit diet one can eat as much as they want.
For dinner I’m having sweet potato veggie chili! Yummy.

Here’s how I make it:
1 onion chopped
3 garlic cloves chopped
2 sweet potatoes peeled and cut into chunks
1 red bell pepper chopped
1 green pepper chopped
1 15 oz can kernel corn drained
1 15 oz can black beans drained
1 15 oz can kidney beans drained
1 8 oz can Rotel
1 28 oz tomatoes in sauce or whole tomatoes that you can chop in a blender
Chili powder
1 ancho chili chopped

Put them all together in a large pot or crock pot, add more tomato juice, if the liquid doesn’t cover all the solids. I really don’t like to measure spices so use your own judgement. If the chili turns out too spicy add 2 tablespoons of peanut butter. I know it sounds weird but believe me it tastes amazing!

    In alta ordine de idei,Andreea,iubitzica mea,admir initiativa,ta si te sustin 100%.
    Asa ar trebuii sa facem toti macar o luna pe an. Sper si cred ca «aventura»ta de 90 de zile se va transforma intr-o lectie pozitiva pentru multi dintre noi.Abia astept postarile tale,pune si fotografii ca sa fie si mai imbietor.
