Day one has been a success. I have made it through my first day on a diet! yay! Now to go to bed before I ruin it all!
I'll keep a small meal plan here just to let you know what I have been eating so that when you decide to try to the kind diet, you can just steal mine or take ideas for yours.
Last night I made the Quinoa with Basil and Pine Nuts. Pretty basic but i love fresh herbs and toasted pine nuts in anything really. We had some radish tabbouleh on the side. The boy also said this was his new favourite tabbouleh. SUCCESS!!
Today's breakfast was scrambled tofu. A diet with scrambled tofu you say? Why, yes. YES INDEED! We made ours with broccoli, zucchini, spanish onion, red cabbage and mushrooms. Fresh coriander on the top made it delightful. The boy had his with toast but I had mine on it's own.
Alicia's meal plan mentions that you can eat out at a sushi place, so for lunch we had some fresh sushi. I had a seaweed salad, edamame and an avocado roll. I also had a green tea which didn't quite give me the caffeine hit my body was asking for.
For dinner i made the clean, mean burritos. These are not actually burritos in any way, shape or form. Basically you put a bunch of stuff onto a tortilla, wrap it up and eat. We used wholemeal flat bread and I piled brown rice, kidney beans, lettuce, cucumber and avocado onto mine. After one i was pretty full. I ate the rest of the avocado so it didn't go to waste.
Waited a little while for dinner to settle and took a walk around the neighbourhood as our daily exercise.
All in all, a good day. Missing my coffee a lot and i would love a cup of tea and an oreo right now though.
This diet does require a bit of planning. I already have beans soaking for tomorrow's dinner and have a bit of prep to do for lunch tomorrow too. Alicia recommends that you prepare in bulk for the week but I don't like things sitting in the fridge for too long, waiting to be reheated/cooked.
I have been reading the kind life forums and noticed people asking if the diet was a scam because they had been drinking the weight loss tea for 5 (i think) days and hadn't lost a single pound/kilo. This stuff always makes me laugh. It took months/years to put the weight on, how on earth is it supposed to disappear in 5 days, you crazy, delusional fool?!!? I'm not into this diet for a quick fix. I want my body to be as healthy as I can make it. I tried the tea drink, I didn't like it. Probably wont try it again, but i'm not going to write to Alicia Silverstone on her forum and whinge about it! SHEESH!
So not only have I made it through my first day on a real diet, I have also written my longest blog ever!
