Breakfast @8am: Chocolate Mud Slide with berries - It is the muffin in a mug recipe but with some tweaks to make it more runny like a lava cake. Yum! This is an S meal (higher fat, lower carbs)
Lunch @noon: Big Boy Smoothie with blueberries. I kept the blueberries to a handful so that the carb count wasn't too high. Blueberries are a higher carb berry so when having an S meal I need to keep it to 1/2 cup max. I used coconut milk instead of almond milk to push it from a FP meal to an S meal. It was 3/4 of a blender full and very filling.
Snack @2:30: lite string cheese. This is a FP
Dinner @6pm: Salisbury steak (click to be taken to the pinterest post). I used
Glucomannan in place of starch for a lower glycemic approach. My entire family loved it! I paired it with a large salad with light ranch dressing. The rest of my family enjoyed garlic mashed potatoes with ICBINB and almond milk. Two of the 5 of us have lactose issues so we opt away from milk otherwise I would have used heavy cream in their potatoes. My family enjoys cross-over meals so they don't lose weight.
I should have had a snack before bed (chocolate pudding made the THM way anyone?) but I didn't. I was probably under my calorie target for a nursing mom but will watch it today. I need to remember FP snacks in between meals will help me continue to produce milk for my son.
Speaking of, Sam went in for his one year check-up. He is 20.7 pounds (up a pound from 3 months ago) and in the 16th percentile. 29 inches long/30th percentile and 93rd for head circumference. He's not a big boy compared to my Hannah. The literature they gave me about milestones and info about this age said if I am breastfeeding still then to keep doing it instead of regular milk. That as a reliefe to me when the doctor confirmed this because Sam will eat anything BUT he will not drink whole milk or coconut milk. He wants water all the time. Things have yet again changed since Hannah was little.
