Day 2: My appetite is not satisfied…
Today was a little more difficult than yesterday to adhere to the $7/day challenge because I felt like I was constantly hungry. Maybe it was because I had a little jog this morning, but 30 minutes after breakfast, I was already thinking about lunch. After lunch, I was looking for snacks… I’m beginning to realize how much unnecessary food I eat during the day while I’m at work. Candy, chocolate, anything… and now that I’m refraining from snacking, I’m really noticing it.
Luckily, for dinner I still had the leftovers of the hearty soup Lav made for me yesterday. We added some pasta shells today to add a bit more substance… even tastier than yesterday. Soup is a fantastic option for a cost effective, nutritious meal. But I have to admit: as I type this, I’m already hungry again! Maybe I’ll down a tall glass of water…
