I had to keep track of what I ate for a day for something, so I figured – why not take pictures and post a What I Ate Wednesday?
This is 1 scrambled egg with some swiss (Jarlsberg) and sauteed onions. I also had a slice of whole grain toast with butter, a pear (some of it is unpictured – I was snacking as I prepped the plate), some sliced tomato (from Maria’s garden in NJ – Maria is my Grammie’s caretaker), sauteed onions, and sauerkraut (homemade by Maria).
It was really delicious. I have been eating a lot of sauerkraut lately because Maria gave me a big container of it.
I also had an unpictured 1/2 cup of coffee with coconut creamer.

Wanted to pop in again (3 times in 4 days – a recent record!) to give an update on…
1) The Cleanse: Here is What I Ate Wednesday:
Breakfast: 1 egg, 2 egg whites + ground black sesame & black pepper.
Lunch: Mixed greens salad with a hard-boiled egg & 3/4 cup of chickpeas (yum! my stomach doesn’t like beans that much but the taste was worth it – delish) + 1T EVOO + 1T balsamic vinegar.
Snack: 1/2 cup artichoke hearts (these were in a bit of oil) + 2/3 cup Greek yogurt (yogurt not on the plan – but I was quite hungry at this point).
At this point we go off plan… who was I kidding – I have to make these things work with my lifestyle and my height (5’10” – this plan must be about 800 calories and that is a third of what I eat in a day). But I did make it work for me – keep reading…

What did I eat yesterday? Let’s see…
Breakfast was a small bowl of brown rice with a fried egg on top, a baby persimmon, and a little tangerine. Also coffee of course.
Snack – my coworker brought me an apple from the farmers’ market! (Note – I don’t usually eat this much fruit because it makes me break out. It was kind of an accident. I’ve been getting up early since coming back from the trip and that means I get hungry earlier too, and fruit is a good go-to, quick snack for me… as long as I don’t have too much of it.)
Lunch – a big salad from Just Salad:
- romaine and mesclun base (extra lettuce please)
- a hard-boiled egg
- roasted butternut squash and roasted beets
- beans and corn
- broccoli and sun-dried tomatoes
- horseradish-chive dressing
