Please tend to look at me strange when I tell them I am not eating flour or sugar. They look at me the way I look at vegetarians. You see, I am a meat eater and cannot imagine not eating meat! No sugar or flour has really not been all that hard at all. I even still eat out. Believe it or not, the easiest thing for me to eat when we go out is Mexican Food. Corn tortillas have no flour. ~grins~ So, as long as I chose wisely, it is easy for me to eat out.

I thought I would show you a days worth of what I eat. I am teach a class tonight and will not go home between work and teaching so I packed my breakfast, lunch and supper. The #1 thing I have learned about this is to ALWAYS BE PREPARED! I tend to want to cheat if I do not have the proper things to eat at home.

So here we go! What Mindy is eating for Tuesday!

My breakfast is on the lower right hand side. I do not usually get hungry for breakfast until about 9am. Today I am having steel cut oats with sweetener and a little bit of butter. Real butter. Cause I love real butter. So I use just a teeny tiny bit. I also ate my banana.

For lunch I will have brown rice and chicken. I don't eat white rice because it has been so processed that it is just like sugar. I am also having my tomatoes and cucumbers and my cut up pear. I will have my apple for snack sometime this afternoon.
I forgot to get my nuts in the picture! ~snickers...that made me laugh for some reason...nuts...HAHAHAHAHA~. I have a small handful of pistachios and almonds to snack on during the day.
This is my tiffin. Isn't she sweet?!?!?! I love bento and tiffin items. I have learned that eating this way is not always cheap but I am worth it. Carbs are CHEAP! I am totally worth the cost of eating healthy and having fun containers! I got my tiffin online. I believe that World Market also sells them. Mine is a small 3 tier container which gives me pretty correct proportions.
This is my supper. All packed and hanging out in the fridge just waiting for me! I will be having chicken salad with pecans, tomatoes and strawberries.

Honestly, I am never hungry when I eat this way. I tend to gaze my way through the day.

So what are you eating today?
