4-Hour Body: Day 3

Breakfast: spinach, yellow peppers, onions, lentils, black beans, chickpeas & cottage cheese; coffee

Snack: last night's leftovers; broccoli & cauliflower with spicy hummus

Snack #2: avocado with Worchestershire sauce; coffee

Lunch: green smoothie: spinach, date, strawberries, goji berries, banana, lime & maca powder

Dinner: Yves Asian Veggie Ground Round, Unico Bean Medley, spinach, onions & yellow peppers with parsnip & cauliflower couscous*

Also: Medjool date

Exercise: Bickram yoga (90 minutes), during which I almost fainted

*"Parsnip & cauliflower couscous" is actually just parsnips and cauliflower, chopped and then pulsed in the food processor until they become roughly the size and shape of couscous. I tried this with turnips as well when I was experimenting with the raw food diet, but I think parsnips taste better. You don't have to cook the couscous either -- just eat it raw with a stir-fry or whatever you'd usually put on couscous or rice.

How I Cheated: I'm surprised by my lack of cheating thus far. Of course it is only day 3. If I get technical, I did eat fruit again, and I'm just assuming the veggie ground round is ok, though it contains some wheat protein further down the list of ingredients, and now that I just checked it again, well it contains flour and sugar as well. Dates are really high in sugar, but also are really effective in fighting chocolate/dessert cravings, so I have decided to approve of them.
