Zone Day 2

Wohoo!  Day 2 down and this is fun!  I'm not hungry, don't feel tired at work and I don't want something sweet at 3pm - in my mind, that is a pure miracle!  I'm really happy with the portion sizes, but I don't recommend having the same lunch everyday - it gets boring.  But apart from that, I made some small changes to the MCC recipe and it was a star - and it will feature again next fortnight.  

Breakfast (3 Blocks)
Protein Shake (3p) - Hydro Whey (3/4 scoop & water)
1 orange (2c)
1/2 cup pineapple (1c)
 3 macadamias (3f)

Lunch (3 Blocks)
1 egg (1p)
small can of tuna (2p)
lettuce (1c)
1 tomato (1c)
1 cucumber (1c)
3/4 tsp seeds (3f)

Snack 1 (2 Blocks)
60g deli meat (2p)
1 apple (2c)
6 cashews (2f)

Dinner (3 Blocks)
MCC Salad (see link to recipe below)

Snack 2 (1 Block)
1/2 cup grapes (1c)
30g ricotta (1p)
6 peanuts (1f)

Firstly, my wife is the best cook around! Two dinners, two nights eating like a king! All with 56g of protein, 63g of carbs (from veggies!) and only 12g of fat...this "diet" is out of control. Not hungry, which equals not angry and testy and I had to actually force down the whole snack at around 3:30pm. I'm eating at around 9:30am, 12:30pm, 4:00pm, 7:00pm and 9:00pm which seems to work well so far, I'll keep you posted.

Protein shake 1 scoop Syntha-6 (3p, 2c, 4f)
60g deli meat (2p)
2 cup cherry tomatoes (2c)
6 cup raw mushrooms (cooked down with thyme and parsley) (1c)
Long black with 1/3 tsp coconut oil (1f)

Lunch (5 Blocks)
150g chicken deli meat (5p)
1 orange (1c)
1 peach (1c)
1 cup grapes (1c)
2 tsp tahini (5f)

For 8 blocks we changed the recipe a little, but not the way it's cooked! 
240g chicken breast (8p)
100ml coconut milk (8f)
600g cauliflower (3c)

Still use the chilli, mint and ginger as per the recipe.  BUT NO ALMONDS! Boooo - actually you don't really miss them, they're just a nice treat.
