This Is What My Breakfast Looks Like

This is my breakfast:

-1/2 grapefruit
-1/2 cup of blueberries
-1 cup of slim milk
-1/2 cup of plain corn flakes

Not every morning I eat cereal, but you better believe I have 2 pieces of fruit with a 1/2 of serving of something else, ie, cream of wheat, grits, toast...and not all the time I have milk. I have to watch my dairy intake. I try to milk 1-3 servings a week.

So here is a sample written out menu of how I eat:

Breakfast: -1/3 cup of cooked oatmeal (I also have to watch my phosphorus intake)
-2 tbsp. of raisins
-1/2 cup of cherries (fresh or frozen)

Lunch: -1 oz. (yes ONE OUNCE!) of salmon and that's with every meat
-1/2 cup of applesauce
-1/2 cup of cucumbers (5 slices)

Dinner: -1 oz. of fresh fish/frozen not breaded or processed
-1/2 cup of blueberries
-1/2 cup of pineapples
-1/2 cup of raw cabbage
-1/2 cup of broccoli

Applesauce has been my best friend, lol. That's what they gave me all the time in the hospital and now I pretty much eat it with every meal. The key is to eat 1/2 cup of everything, that's what I am instructed to do for this season. So it's portion control. It can be very frustrating in the beginning but as time goes on you get used to it.

Keep in mind all your meats are only 1 ounce!!!! Ohhhh how I cried when I heard that, but if you all wanted to know how I lost, this is it. I don't eat red meat, or chicken. I only eat shrimp (4), fresh fish (1 oz.), scallops (7), crab meat (1 oz.), lobster, oysters, and clams (3 medium). However, I mainly eat fresh fish, shrimp, and scallops, that's it. Eventually, I will be going vegetarian.

I have gotten so many compliments on my face of how clear and it glows. I drink only water and cranberry juice (which is a 1/2cup plus I add water to it).

Oh, before I forget! NO SALT!!!!!!!!!!!! OMG, I forgot and that's the main reason! Well almost. I DO NOT PUT SALT ON ANY OF MY FOOD, NONE!!!!!! It took forever for me to adjust. I'm not allowed too, but for you all you can. I will post later about the seasonings I use.

So there you have it! Any questions, please feel free to leave it in the comments. I have no problem telling.

Stay tuned Bloggers......
