Which would have me making stuff like:
8 oz. Swordfish with 3 tbsp. mango-ginger sauce, Miso soup, Halibut, Gazpacho, Quinoa, Steak & Arugula Salad - forgive my ignorance but I don't even know what some of these are!! (and I don't even like seafood)
The other way is a guideline telling you how many fruits, vegetables, protein, carbs, dairy, etc. to have each day and it gives a list of "acceptable" examples like chicken, v-8, a banana, turkey bacon, whole wheat bagel, carrots, cottage cheese....ya know stuff easy to find & prepare!
What was he thinking??? I'm not a good cook and I might just have given up if I had to make Butternut Squash soup again like last night. Have you ever made that? Chopping it up is like cutting a brick!!!
And, I caught him cheating this morning!! I made him turkey sausage with egg whites on whole wheat english muffin (his only carb for the day :0 ) with 1 cup of v-8 and he snuck in orange juice!! He only gets 1 fruit and I put a banana in his lunch, I told him. Can't say I blame him but his response was "it's only a guideline", haha.
