Day 3 - Live Below The Line

Day 3. I got over my caffeine withdrawal which was nice, but started to feel the effects (mood wise) of not being able to snack or have fresh vegetables (salad, I miss you). I did however try out a new recipe which I was pleasantly surprised with! Check out my Live Below the Line page.

Here is a breakdown of Day 3

Breakfast:  Oatmeal but without the molasses(goodbye calcium!) and ½ banana.  I felt like more protein, so I increased the peanuts, and had to cut out the banana and molasses.  :/

Dinner:  Same as Day 1 & 2 but with ½ a hot chilli pepper(couldn’t eat the whole, too hot!).  It’s a good thing I really like split pea soup...
