This past Wednesday's meals were less than the norm from the Fresh Diet and to say I was disappointed would be an understatement. As you could see, if you read my post, it was definitely NOT a day to remember, but it was just one day. My meals have returned with a renewed sense of what the Fresh Diet really is ......... wonderful, filling meals that help you to either maintain your healthy weight or help you get to that healthy weight.
Seeing my little buddy sitting outside my door was so nice Thursday morning, especially when I opened the bag and started to bring my meals out on the counter. They were BACK!
The Fresh Diet Facebook Page, Carol B (check out her blog too) noted that they always dry grill their wraps - so I decided to try it on my breakfast burrito. Well I got a little carried away with the "grilling" so if you look close its a little "brown" on the outside - but was so very good this way. I will definitely be doing this again on the rest of my breakfast wraps.
I also had Pina Colada Cheese Cake, and Pineapple Upside Down Cake with Maraschino Cherries and Pecans ....... but I will be darned if I can find those pictures. These were also pretty good - but then when isn't cheese cake good?. One day I had Ginger Poached Apple with Mascapone Cheese which were interesting but not exactly what I expected. I assumed it would be similar to the poached pears but these were diced pieces of apple .... I'm not sure if I will have this as an option or not again.... I guess it depends on what else is available on that day.
I now have to decide if I want to go back down to the 1200 - 1400 calorie days or stay with the 1600 - 1800 calorie days. With the new menu "tweaking" the 1200 calories were just too small (or perhaps it was the NY kitchen getting things right) and the 1600 - 1800 calories are just too much. I will have to think about what I want to do.....or perhaps I will not have both the snack and dessert each day and stay with the higher calories.
I guess I will just have to see what happens in the next few weeks with my weight loss. What do you think I should do? Anyone have any thoughts on this? I'm open to suggestions.
