This experiment has caused me to share some of the grocery shopping responsibilities now though. I realized I’m only good to buy the basics for the home and then some of the easier fruits, like apples, bananas, strawberries, blueberries, and sweet potatoes. Much of the abnormal fruits and vegetables I leave to my wife who has a better eye for them than I do. I just spend too much time handling avocados with no luck in figuring out which one is best and often get strange looks when I ask people’s opinions on their fruit selections.
I’ve also realized that I get too overwhelmed looking at yogurt options. Yogurt is not a food I enjoy and my least favorite thing is trying to figure out which ones to buy if my family asks me to get some. Do they really need that many yogurt options in the world? This has led me to just leave some money aside for Stephanie to find the best deals on fruit and go crazy.
What I ate today
- It struck me that I’ve eaten the same breakfast for seventeen days now and it really hasn’t phased me that much. I have found that I’m eating smaller portions now then when I started out, which is true for every meal, not just breakfast.
- Lunch has the same issue. I’ve lived on a salad of some sort for the past seventeen days.
- Dinner is where I get my variety though, so it works out. Tonight was Teriyaki chicken chunks over a bed of rice with a mix of sweet peppers. I also had a portion of cottage cheese with the meal, just to jazz it up a bit. I don’t turn to cottage cheese that often, but it’s something I enjoy in small irregular portions.
The goal tomorrow is to hit the gym in the morning, but it will be a busy day so let’s see if I make it happen.
Onward to day eighteen!
