One thing I’m reminded about, as I am doing the South Beach Diet again, is the need to snack. It is important to proactively snack throughout the day – to eat something before you are actually hungry. Yesterday, I waited too long to have my afternoon snack and I was famished. Today, I want to do better.
Here are some snacks that I need to put on my list – I particularly like the shrimp cocktail. From this list, I am excited about the upcoming fresh tomato season. By the way, Kalyn’s page, Kalyn’s Kitchen, is a great resource.
What snacks do you eat?
For breakfast, I had another omelette with spinach, yellow pepper and mushrooms. My mid-morning snack was a handful of nuts. Lunch was a repeat of lettuce wrapped shrimp sandwiches, this time with hummus and tomatoes.
Speaking of shrimp, have you ever visited a shrimp farm? I recently visited the RDM Shrimp farm in Fowler, Indiana. It was very interesting seeing how shrimp are raised. While they were the freshest shrimp I bought – they were alive when I bought them – the flavor doesn’t compare to Royal Reds. If you ever get down to the Gulf Shores, be sure to pick up a pound.
For dinner…let’s just say social outings can wreck a Phase 1 food plan. I attended an outing at Angie’s Pizza. It was my first time visiting and it will not be my last. Great pizza. I need to technically start over with Phase 1.
