Food & Exercise Diaries, Starch Solution

Day 5: September 19th

Day 5/23

I had to take the GRE psychology subject test this morning, so my macros aren’t on point due to the protein bars I ate to get through it–the total exam experience was four grueling hours long. But hopefully that’s the last standardized test I’ll ever have to take!

In happier news, I tried store bought gnocchi for the first time and I was pleasantly surprised. I’ve made my own in the past, but that’s ridiculously time consuming… this stuff literally took 2 minutes! I combined it with some low fat pesto I made awhile ago and froze for occasions like these, which made for an instant HCLF comfort food dinner.
