This WIAW showcases one of the last days of my elimination, when I was missing dairy like crazy and still super hungry all the time. I had high hopes last Thursday that a baked quinoa cake, a few dollops of peanut butter, and a giant apple might hold me over from breakfast for an entire two hours until an early lunch. No such luck, though it was delicious.
Morning snack was a slice of the smoked salmon frittata I brought for lunch. I was tinkering with the mix of spices I use for the filling in my Smoked Salmon & Quinoa Quiche ahead of my dinner party, so I made a batch. It was supposed to be lunch for a few days, but it turned into brunch as an in-between meal rather than the main event.
Since I’d eaten my lunch and didn’t have something packed for Friday, I swung by the Little Beet for a box of grilled chicken, blistered string beans, and charred cauliflower around 1:30pm.
I didn’t snack as much as usual that afternoon, just some baby carrots and hummus, probably because of the three filling meals I had before 2pm. I had to get to the grocery store after work which always takes a little time, since everyone coming home from the office descends at once, to pick up ingredients for some of my dinner party recipes as well as staples for me like a new jar of sunflower seed butter and some So Delicious ice cream 🙂
By the time I got home and made myself dinner, I was starving again. I went with broiled garlic crusted mahi mahi, spaghetti squash, broccoli, cauliflower, and tomato sauce. The photo below is of this meal when I made it several weeks ago, but the only difference was a lack of goat cheese – I was so hungry I actively thought about snapping a quick photo and dug in instead! I missed my goat cheese, but I knew I’d be able to eat some on Saturday evening as dairy was to be my first add-in after the elimination.
For dessert, I indulged in a couple of the Grain Free Dark Chocolate Fudge Brownies I made that evening ahead of the dinner party. They really need to be refrigerated overnight to be at their best, but I didn’t care. They were perfect paired with some of the So Delicious ice cream. Some honeydew to follow, and I called it a wrap.
If you’ve done an elimination, what couldn’t you wait to add back in?
If you’re having a party, do you start prepping several days ahead?
Are you hungrier in the morning or the evening?
