Later lunch than I wanted, but I had been running errands all day... And smaller bowl than I wanted too! But it was all that was left. Going to cook a new batch for dinner.

 

Dinner - 19:00

Kitchari

 

1.5 bowls, and closer to my lunch meal than usual, but as I said, didn't have as much for lunch as I would have wanted. Had broccoli in this batch. Not a bad choice! :) Perhaps mainly because it was a bit of a change in taste and texture ;) 

 

Evening food - 22:10

Kitchari

 

Was even more hungry after dinner, so I had a small bowl of kitchari in front of TV. My wife again went for the sweet stuff. Yesterday wasn't too bad, she had sweets I don't like too much. But tonight she had cinnamon buns and gingerbread cookies. I'm generally not a super fan of cinnamon buns. But the smell in the kitchen when she thawed those in the microwave oven was so nice! Really made me want to have some. And as you probably know by now, I'm a sucker for gingerbread cookies :) And it's not even that I didn't enjoy my bowl of kitchari, I still find it tasty. And if my wife hadn't gotten the sweets out I wouldn't even have thought about having that. But smelling the scent of the cinnamon buns, hearing the crunch as she bit down on the cookies. Man, it really made me want to have some sweets too :) I wouldn't ever want to live without her, but in cases like this, living alone would have been so much easier :)

Kitchari

 

Thanks to @Arkania I realized that I had forgotten to add cilantro to my kitchari. Didn't have any fresh cilantro, so I used all the frozen we had (not enough) and dried cilantro as well. Nothing even comes close as tasting as good as the fresh stuff, and to be honest, the dried cilantro is pretty horrible in comparison. But I'm the only one in the family who likes it, and I can never finish the fresh cilantro before it goes bad. So I very rarely buy it.

 

Dinner - 21:15

My recipe called for ½ inch fresh ginger. Some other recipes call for up towards 2 inches of ginger. So to this bowl I added some dried ginger, just to see how it would have tasted with a bit more ginger. It was alright. But I might have overdone it a little bit :D It tasted almost only of ginger :D But a little bit more than ½ an inch wouldn't have hurt.

 

This was the last bowl of kitchari. Absolutely not tired of it yet Thumbs Up

 

Tiny snack - 17:15

Thai meatballs, peanut sauce, rice noodles, pak choi salad with carrots and sugar snap peas

 

We had friends over, and they brought food that they cooked here at our place. This is what they made, and it was delicious! Thanks friends Love Eyes

 

Dessert - 19:20

 

20190110_192251.jpg.db0d0527c4517207adb091292bb0e4ba.jpg

 

A cup of tea and a blood orange

 

Finally tea again! Best part of going off the kitchari cleanse/detox/reset/whatever :) 

My wife and our friends had chocolate cake with raspberries and whipped cream, but I wanted something a bit more healthy.

 

Evening snack - 22:30

 

20190110_223015.jpg.e38ba346d3286eb1801f36b5e6d4c7cf.jpg

 

Pear/vanilla protein cake with raspberries and fresh pear.

 

My wife had more of the chocolate cake etc, and I wanted ice cream, cinnamon buns, gingerbread cookies, whipped cream, berries, banana... But I got to my senses and had a protein microwave cake instead with some fruit. Now that I had been good for so long with my mono-diet I didn't want to go all out on the sweets the very same night I stopped with the kitchari :)

Kitchari... kitchari... Oh! Not kitchari!

 

Did you happen to get the recipe for the salad that your friends made? It looks really good! :O

Probably smart, since the whole point was to reduce sweet cravings! :P

 

Did it work, by the way? Have you noticed a decrease in the cravings?

 

And did you find the fruit and protein cake to be satisfying?

Yes. If *cough*someone*cough* didn't constantly tempt me with eating sweets things right next to me I don't think I would think about the sweets at all. (I say this in a really loving voice :wub: - I truly don't want to deny anyone to eat whatever they please just because I have problems with food)

Yes. I'm actually thinking of making it again tonight. We'll see. Definitely a good snack option if/when I feel like something protein heavy. Nice variation on just drinking the protein powder with water.

Braainz! :P 

 

Just kidding :D  That is actually what my kefir looked like this morning, before stirring and straining it :)

So this is that kefir that I showed in the first photo, but after stirring/mixing it together and straining it through a fine meshed sieve, and then combining it with quark, mixed frozen berries and chopped Brasil nuts and almonds

Pizza, oven roasted broccoli with chili and parmesan, Swedish pizza salad

 

Had friends over tonight as well, and again, they brought food. But this time it was just pizza with tomato sauce, cheese and ham (and pineapple for the kids), and Swedish pizza salad. I had prepared the broccoli, our friends didn't bring that.

 

Post workout smoothie - 22:15

 

20190111_222144.jpg.1543c009b0d00d87860594f31881f510.jpg

 

4+ cups worth of smoothie made with banana, milk, oats, strawberries and protein powder (strawberry flavor)

 

This tastes really good, and is crazy filling :)

@Tobbe

Wow, that oven roasted broccoli looks fantastic, they're like beautiful mini-trees. The protein powder drink sounds like something I would be interested in making on my own. Great job killing the dinosaur, neat word pun you've got going on.
