baby food

Yesterday (Day 3) was the hardest day yet. We're in a bit of a cold snap here and I didn't feel like putting my car through minus 15 degree starts to go to the store for fruit, so all I ended up eating for the entire day was some rutabaga/carrot mash, a little sweet potato, a big bowl of cold raw veg, a few apples, and one bowl of that evil soup. Plus tons of water and herbal tea...ummm if I had to guess, I'd say I drank about 3 litres of water and tea. My favourite tea is Country Peach Passion by Celestial Seasonings.

Oh and I ate one other thing. A while ago, my daughter was having a sleepover and I thought it would be funny to walk up to her in front of her friends and embarass her with a baby spoon and a jar of baby food and say something like: "OK, honey, it's time for your usual snack!" So I bought a jar of baby food and did the joke and Elle rolled her eyes at her like totally square dad (like totally L7 man!) and we had this baby food sitting around in the cupboard after that. So yesterday I spotted it while I was looking longingly through my food cupboards at all the food I cannot have. It was "Mixed Fruit" and I checked the ingredients and Yay! it actually had nothing but fruit in it! Apples, Pear, Apricot, and Pineapple. It was offically an "allowed" food today! And it turned out to be 100 calories, 4.5 ounces of pure heaven. I'm sure that's partially because I'm starving to death, but honestly I was blown away at how good it tasted. I found myself wondering how you could use this baby food in baking, I mean it tasted just like a fruit compote. It was very sweet, probably because the pineapple juice was concentrated...I think it only cost me 59 cents which makes it a better value than an actual apple...I could go on and on but now I am wondering how I can incorporate baby food into my new lifestyle and it will be all I can do not to buy 30 jars of this stuff when I go to the store today to buy bananas and milk...

Ok, so for today I can have up to 8 bananas, unlimited amounts of skim milk and unlimited cabbage soup which for me means exactly one bowl of cabbage soup. I love bananas and skim milk so it should be an interesting day.

This morning's scale reading exceeded my wildest expectations. It makes the lack of energy and the misery of yesterday totally worth it!
