Done. Fin. Over.
At last. 28 days of keeping eating dairy, meat, oil, and processed food free as the ultimate Â diet goal are over.
Today isnâ€™t the day Iâ€™ll be wrapping up all my thoughts on my experience. Iâ€™m still processing it all. Having successfully finished this diet in the past, I’m not ending on the high note I wanted to.
My dad asked me to post my success earlier today and I replied that I didnâ€™t feel all that successful this time around. He kindly reminded me that the success is subjective. And he is right. So check back in a few days, I promise a positive reflection of life on the Engine 2 Diet.
FOOD DIARY DAY 27
Breakfast: Kale salad with tofu scramble, vegan, but contained oil. Health Starts Here salad of curried sweet potato and coconut with cashews. Pretty tasty.
Snack: 1/2 a Sumo orange, 1/2 a Kind bar, split with Ella on the ride to Seattle. 2 cups of coffee
Lunch: Coffee, too many samples of nutritional bars lying around the office. A bite of chocolate. White bean and kale soup. Banana
Dinner: Dinner at my motherâ€™s- E2 Chili, slice of Jiffy cornbread.
Snack 4 girl scout cookies
FOOD DIARY DAY 28
Breakfast: Kale and a sweet potato with balsamic vinegar
Snack: two endive spears with red lentil pate and a pecan, some other totally unidentifiable stuffed potato snack- definitely had cheese, probably sour cream too. It wasnâ€™t delicious. One QBel peanut butter chocolate cookie, kale chips.
Dinner: Catered dinner at a company event: Roll with butter. Salad with frizzled leeks, vegan apple turnip soup. Vegan â€œcassoletteâ€ a tragic mess of vegetables, beans, maybe a mashed cauliflower topping? Iâ€™m not sure exactly. It wasnâ€™t very good.
Drinks: 2 glasses of wine, 1 bourbon
