Day 7 Food Diary (6/15)

In honor of Father’s Day, I whipped up a brunch of cherry blintzes for my parents: essentially European dumplings made with a crepe shell. The store didn’t have satisfactory pitted cherries, so I pitted about a pound of cherries by hand. That was a fun time. The intense cherry flavor that resulted was totally worth it, though.

I felt full and satisfied until a small dinner of rice cakes, tomatoes, and sourdough, and my calorie count was looking great! …until I had some of that leftover pazookie of mine at my boyfriend’s house. It may have kept me from my 400 cal goal, but it was delicious. That’s my only excuse.

Also, I discovered the joy of Silk french vanilla soy creamer! My salted caramel & hazelnut coffees just reached a whole new level of gourmet.

All in all, a pretty good day, because I actually felt in control of my eating. Can’t wait to share my weekly progress with you all later today!
