So, last weeks cheatday was kind of canceled, because I spend half a cheat week at my aunts. And after feeling so sick on my first one, I decided to give it another go and see how it works out.
This will be a blog full of delish food pictures and a lot of sinful meals – so probably not the best idea to read this when you are on a diet :p – just a warning.
1 head of romaine lettuce
a small piece of ginger
– and it was so goooooood, really refreshing and a great kickstart for my metabolism in the morning, preparing it to deal with all the foodmasses which were about to follow.
4 small slices of kamut bread topped with:
- radish-beet-root spread and cucumber
- rocket and almond-nut-tofu
- vegan mayonaise, avocado, tomato
- vegan duo chocolate spread
accompanied by my favorite tea
green tea with ginger and maple syrup
falafel dürüm – a turkish dish made of a thin wrap, different kinds of salad, falafel & hot sauce
(I didn’t make it through all of the wrap, but I finished of the filling)
3! of the chocolate-peanutbutter-cups I made in the morning, following a recipe out of alicia silverstones cookbook “the kind diet”.
the two layers were delish, but next time I am going to use less margarine and more cookie crumbs for the first one.
My boyfriend and me been surprisingly invited by my parents to join them for barbecue. So I had a small platter with oven roasted potato, corn on the cob, salad and pita bread. And a glas of greek white wine.
late evening indulgence
and this is the part were the cheating got really bad and which was just to much for my poor little stomach:
potato crisps and red wine – no problem so far – but then we had bought an apple strudel earliert this day and some vegan vanille ice cream and planned on finishing this for dinner – when we unexpectedly been invited at my parents little barbecue thing, we still had no intention to give up on our strudel-plans.
So each of us had three servings like in the picture above (my boyfriend with more ice cream, my last portion was completely with out) – and afterwards I fell in a food-coma. My tummy was aching and I could just sleep and sleep and sleep until nearly 9 pm today (and usualy I am an early morning person).
So… to sum it up: The second cheat day wasn’t much better then the first. I think next time I am just going to enjoy some sweets on cheat day and have a nice meal in the evening or something like that. But definitely not overdo it like that again. The pain is not worth the metabolism-push!
Question: How can people eat such foodmasses everyday without the wish for a change?
