A Turning Point – Frugal Novice

A Turning Point

I’ve always been a snacker. I would typically snack throughout the day, which could be a good thing if I weren’t eating junky food! Today was the first time since starting Freshology that I didn’t feel the need to have some apple or another little snack to get myself through the day. It’s like my stomach is finally catching on to what’s happening!

I’m excited about my progress this week, but I’ll wait and tell you about that Thursday with my first weekly vlog! For now, I’ll tell you a little more about my meals today.

Breakfast: Broccoli, Mushroom & Cheese Frittata with Turkey Maple Sausage & Fresh Fruit (270 calories)

Yup, you’re just seeing the fruit there. That’s ’cause I gobbled up the frittata and sausage before I realized I had forgotten to take a photo of it! It was really good – the omelet was structured similarly to the omelet I had last week, with two egg rounds and filling in between. The flavors were completely different and I actually didn’t mind the mushrooms in this dish at all! As always, I love finishing my breakfast with fresh fruit. It’s nice having grapes, because they take longer to eat and you feel like you’re getting even more.

Lunch: Open-Faced Philly Cheese Steak with Side Salad (400 calories)

I didn’t take a photo of the salad because I figured the sandwich is the star of the show. There was half of a whole-wheat pita for the bread, and it was piled with onions, red peppers, beef and cheese. I thought Freshology did a great job of translating such an unhealthy sandwich into something light! My favorite part of this lunch was the sauteed onions – yum.

Dinner: Teriyaki Chicken with Sauteed Bok Choy & Shiitake Mushrooms, and Rice (390 calories)

Yet again dinner was filling and flavorful. The teriyaki sauce was slightly sweet and totally made me feel like I was eating our stir-fry we like so much. The chicken was tender, and the rice was a great compliment. I love fried rice… this was heartier with a brown rice grain,  but was a good substitute! I let Brian have at the bok choy and mushrooms, and he was really impressed, especially with the mushrooms.

Dessert: Apple & Cranberry Cobbler (140 calories)

SO good! I heated it up in the microwave for 30 seconds, and it was a perfect end to my day’s food. There was just enough of the crumble on top to make it feel like I was splurging, and the apples and cranberries were a nice blend of sweet and tart.

Note: I received food from Freshology to facilitate my review. I was not compensated monetarily. All opinions shared in this post are honest and are entirely my own.
