The menu was just as I thought it would be- easy for breakfast and lunch, but come dinner time I really craved a bowl of hot chili, or a plate of spaghetti and meatballs, or even some chicken with steamed spinach. After dessert though, I felt full enough that the idea for any of these things subsided. Gary ate what I did for dinner, but between dinner and dessert, he had a nice huge chunk of cheese and a slice of bread with butter.
I may have drooled a bit.
All I have at the moment are almonds for protein source, I'm working at getting some chick peas and beans sprouted, but until then- it's gonna be just the almonds.
I also successfully made some almond milk, however, my blender gave me a prompt scolding afterwards by sending up a flash of smoke.
