My presentation went well in the morning, and right afterwards I noticed I was pretty hungry. I headed out into the lobby to get some snacks. Most conferences have platters of fruit and vegetables, tea and coffee available for attendees. So I had a look and picked up what I thought was watermelon, orange slices, and cantaloupe. Well, it turns out it wasn’t watermelon, but pink grapefruit (talk about bitter!) and they weren’t oranges, but something else bitter. I’m not exactly sure who decided on these fruits for the conference, but it certainly was weird! So I ate my cantaloupe piece and took out some of my own food.
I did leave the conference early because I was hungry and tired, and still had a 2hour train ride home. This new diet is working well for me giving me plenty of energy (didn’t even get a headache that day!) but I guess I underestimated how much food I needed to bring with me.
Here’s what I ate today:
Breakfast: Banana, almond butter brownies
Snack: applesauce, 1 slice cantaloupe
Lunch: chicken, zucchini, mushrooms with garlic and coconut oil
Snack: Organic Food Bar – not quite SCD legal, has agave nectar as the sweetener in it
Dinner: Egg drop soup with carrots, chicken & avocado tots
Desert: almond butter brownies with blueberries melted on top
Desert 2: strawberries
