Today was day one of being corn free.
I did it. It’s 9:44 today and it’s tough but I did it. I started off the morning with a brown rice cake, a bit of peanut butter and some jam sweetened with fruit juice and a banana.
Lunch was Chicken in a salad. Snack was an apple and a small bowl of raw nuts (with the shells). Dinner was some quinoa, brown rice, assorted veggies, and an egg on top.
I felt great. I was doing everything on my to do list (I am totally a list person!) Not focusing on food to much. Although I realized I had forgotten water, so I had to catch up on that.
After dropping Anna off at dance I headed off to the mall with Angel to get my ring checked and cleaned. I was way overdue. While we were there, we still had some time to kill. So Angel, of course, said he was hungry. No problem, I can handle this. We head to the food court and I go straight to Meyer’s Deli to check out their fruits. They only had strawberries. I am not really a fan of plain strawberries. They also had some veggies sticks sitting in some dip. Can’t have that. So I head to Subway and get a bag of Lay’s Classics. I love Lay’s low salt. Lays is so simple with their ingredients. They are gluten and casein free. Should be no problem.
Of course I can’t look at the bag behind the counter so I purchase the bag and go sit with Angel. Just before opening, thankfully, I look at the ingredients, corn oil. I didn’t eat any but of course now my stomach is grumbling in complaint. I am forced to ignore it. I am totally craving watermelon and so frustrated that the deli didn’t have any this time. Funny thing is I never even looked twice at Angel’s pizza. That’s a good thing!
After arriving home I drank more water and held off eating for a bit. I had some hummus (I made it today) and carrots. Angel and Anna just ate ice cream and of course my stomach is rumbling again. I can’t wait to go to bed so I don’t have to deal with it.
I don’t know if I ate enough calories today and I am honestly too tired to look it up. I am sure I am fine though. I just need to get used to not having the corn fillers that make up my daily meals. I was was definitely eating way too much corn chips and tortillas to add to those calories.
I did do some research and it looks like the only Lay’s I might be able to have is Kettle chips. While it doesn’t have any gluten added, it has not been tested to be gluten free. Looks like I need to find another chip to love.
What’s your favorite chip?
