I agree it needs to be liveable and I'm a believer in tweaking
I may include more oil than the tsp allowed by the plan, though I do want to work on that. I may include a little agave nectar or sugar from time to time as well.
This morning I had a fruit salad for breakfast which included fresh fruit as well as sliced baby spinach.
Lunch: vegetarian chili (I make my own and freeze it). It's just fire roasted tomatoes, onions, peppers, 3 kinds of beans and a special seasoning. It's fat free and tastes fantastic.
I'll measure the oil and see how little I can get away with and still eat a fair amount of kale. I didn't choose to eat this for my diet but rather to encourage my granddaughter to eat something green. We watched a video of a little girl making them and it encouraged Mikayla to want to try them as well.
Meal: One bunch of swiss chard, sauteed in a few drops of water and served with a dash of balsamic vinegar. 1/2 cup of baked tofu cubes. I might roast a beet to go with it.
Probably also later to reach veggie goal - Big salad of spinach, tomatoes, onions, peppers, 1/2 cup beans and salsa for the dressing.
I regret not starting the day weighing my foods but will do better tomorrow. It's really hard to get a whole pound of raw and pound of cooked! The last time did ETL I stuck to it well but had a hard time getting enough calories.
