Geocache Diet – Day 113

I need to make sure I am sticking to the diet I want to follow.  As outlined in the Geocache Diet – Day 81 we are using Asian and Meditteranian diets as the base for our healthier long term eating plan.  I decided that I should put my desired menu for the next 7 days into a blog and try to follow it closely to see some real results.

  • Dinner:  Thai Green Curry with Prawn & Tofu

Each day between meals, if I am hungry, I will have a small snack from the following list

  • apple
  • 1/2 banana
  • orange slices
  • few grapes
  • small bowl berries
  • carrot sticks
  • celery w/ hummus
  • small handfull of nuts
  • cup of popcorn
  • whole wheat cracker with a bit of tuna

I just have to be strict in the menu I follow.  With this menu plan I have a pretty good balance of meals that are vegetarian, have seafood, and have chicken breast.  We are only occasionally going to include other meats which is not much of a sacrifice in this household.  I do not drink alcohol (that’s right I am a Canadian who does not perfer red meat and a beer), and I do not like hot beverages, and I have no problem cutting out juices or soft drinks.  Since the start of the geocache diet I have almost exclusively been drinking only water.  My issue is with food, not drink.

Lets see how this goes.  I have been this rigid with planning each days meal this closely with success before so I am hopibg this week will be good.  I will try and do this evey week though I may not bore you with a blog (unless you want me to).
