Breakfast- a 1/2 gallon smoothie of 1 large bunch dandelion greens, 1 medium sized pineapple, 6 Medjool dates
Lunch- 13 Medjool dates, 1 large head Romaine lettuce
Dinner- 7 Medjool dates, a smoothie: 1 large bunch of spinach, 5 Valencia oranges, 1 grapefruit
The dates were not so great addition to the breakfast smoothie but the pineapple didn't taste very sweet and I felt that I needed something else sweet in it to boost my calorie intake. Unfortunately, the result did not taste fabulous and I don't recommend it. My cupboard is full of fruit that is not quite ripe yet.
Dinner was after working out at the gym and I felt really hungry. I thought about having a handful of pecans and a big salad for dinner but I thought about it and I said to myself, "Stephen, you know that it is nearly impossible for you to eat just one handful of pecans. Just let it go for tonight and make a smoothie."
That sounded like pretty good advice to me and I listened. The spinach/orange combination was pretty damn good and I didn't miss the pecans one bit!
