Food Stamp Diet: Post #7 

Ok...I'm up to day 6 now. And oh do I want crisp, leafy green things back in my life. Here's what I ate:

Breakfast: Yogurt with a banana.  Monday is a big day 'round the office. On Monday and Tuesday, we put together the week's paper. Not much time for anything extra. I began work at 6 am, and took a break for "blunch" around 11 a.m.
Lunch: A very small amount of lentil stew leftover from the night before. Plus an apple and peanut butter.
Dinner: At 8:30 p.m., since I worked until 7:30. An omelet with jack cheese and some couscous.

I knew I'd be busy on Monday, and was planning to bring allowable snacks to work with me, like a bag of my yummy kettle corn. Unfortunately, I worked 8 hours on Sunday and spent another 6 or so driving to Westford and back and helping with the yurt. It didn't leave me time to make snacks.  So, I got hungry instead.
