Welcome to day #10 of "30 Days as a Vegetarian".
When eating out I have been having veggie burgers (which is pretty hit or miss as some vegetarian options are just gawd awful), but at home I have been having:
That and eating carrot sticks, fruit, etc. I think that is why I get so excited about having a veggie burger when eating out, because it is a change from the hum-drum of salads, soups, etc.
Honestly I don't know how to make much more beyond those things without going into grains, cereals, potatoes, etc - things that are going to have a higher calorie count.
Thus I could make a rice / veggie stirfry, but I am trying to limit my rice intake because of the calories involved.
Likewise I could also make cornmeal bread or pancakes, but again same problem - cornmeal is high in calories.
And of course potatoes, which thus far I have been including in stews and mashed potatoes, but have avoided making potato pancakes, potato french fries, etc. The starch in the potatoes is almost as bad as sugar when it comes to packing on the pounds.
Basically a lot of the tastier options are off the table simply because I want to avoid anything that is too high in calories / starch.
The end result is that it is making me feel very restricted in what I can and cannot eat.
And to top it off I am now receiving nasty emails from a vegan (who I have since blocked) who insists that I should not be eating/drinking eggs, milk or other animal products either because "that is still murder" in her opinion. (By her definition, a woman donating her eggs to medical research would be murder too.)
In other news my weight this morning (after breakfast) was 193.8 lbs. I have lost almost 4 lbs in 10 days.
Waist at widest point was still 41 inches.
