I woke up tired, congested and puffy feeling. Hmmm, 3 oz of cheddar cheese yesterday. Cheddar is a food to AVOID for A blood types BTW!
Meal #1: 7:45am – KS Pumpkin Pie (this batch had only 3/4 c amaranth, which is the minimum needed to create a pie “crust”, and makes the recipe much less filling)
Meal #2: 1pm – White Bean Turkey Chili (this time it has black eyed peas, which are also highly beneficial for A blood type) which included 1 c beans, 4 oz ground turkey & 1/2 c vegs
Meal #3: 4:30pm – 2 oz almonds, 1 oz baked turkey
Meal #4: 9pm – 4 oz DFM Curried Chicken Salad, 3 c mixed baby greens, 1 T NO, 1 brown rice cake, 1-1/2 T peanut butter
A bit sore from last night’s warm core yoga – in a good way. Just enough to remind me that I have muscles in certain places I forgot about!
60 mins. Pilates class. LOVED IT!
TIP OF THE WEEK
Squeeze the glutes while you do a pushup and it engages your abs (which is what you want–to protect your low back and strengthen your core–and it makes it easier to do!
Talking to guides, asking about changing serving sizes in my food plan. Keep 2 cups a day of whole grains. Cut the dairy portions.
One serving dairy will now be:
3/4 c yogurt or kefir, 1 oz goat cheese or sheep feta or 1/4 c cottage cheese DAILY (Limit real milk to 1 c per week)
No more whey or pea protein (soy protein and soy milk ok)
