Day Three

Started my day with a smoothie. I used freshly cut pineapple (using my pineapple corer, it rendered about 1/4 cup of juice which I added to the smoothie), half an apple cored and peeled, half a banana, half a grapefruit, 1/2 cup frozen mango, one leaf of kale taken off the stem! I added 1/4 cup of water.

Snack time: made plantain chips today! In the microwave 3 min 30 sec.

I craved something sweet so I made quince sauce : peeled and cored two quinces, covered them with water, a dash of  cinnamon, one lemon wedge, orange peel. Boil for about 30 min or until the quince is really soft.  Added 2 Tbs of Splenda, drained the liquid and puréed the fruit in my Vitamix. Better than any apple sauce you have ever had!

What’s a quince? Here is a picture in case you don’t know what it looks like:

Lunch today: quinoa pasta with homemade tomato sauce.

Dinner: Greek salad modified by using avocado instead of the feta cheese….and a beer! A Bud Light Platinum.

I’m very surprised that I have not felt hungry at all the last two days!
