I had my tea first thing this morning when I got up and didn't end up eating my breakfast until 11:00 am. I will say that I wasn't impressed with the Sour Cream Coconut flour pancake recipe I tried. It didn't taste horrible but it didn't taste good either. The texture left a lot to be desired - I won't share the recipe because it was really not worth the effort. I did try an experiment to make a quick syrup topping for the pancakes though and it worked pretty well.
Warm pancake topping
2 T butter
2 T cream
1 T monkfruit blend sweetener
1/2 t vanilla extract (I would have used maple extrac if I had some)
1/2 t cinnamon
Mix all together. Heat in microwave 1 minute. Stir. Heat again for 1 minute. Stir & heat one more time. if it's not thickened enough for you at this point just do 30 seconds at a time until it reaches your desired thickness.
I have to say it was pretty darn good. You could use different extracts, leave out the cinnamon, what ever you choose do . Adapt to what you like. You can see it in the picture below.
I sipped on water all day and threw an A&W diet soda in with my lunch, which we ended up eating later in the afternoon because that's when we started to get hungry.
Today wasn't really a typical day. We eat much earlier during the week days because we get up early to look after the grandkids. We are on a regular time schedule most of the time but this weekend we had a ton of stuff to do and just ate when we were hungry.but generally speaking we stick to a pretty strict time schedule because of the kids and our schedules. So today has went well and I'm not thinking of this way of eating as a diet it's just a healthier way of eating for me. I'm also not telling myself I can't have something, because when I do that's when the feelings of deprivation set in and that's when I really want it. I think planning really helps because I know the next meal or snack is coming up soon and if I really want to eat I have a host of items to get me through that I can just go grab. By keeping myself organized, planning, and only buying stuff I can have and no stuff I can't have in the house it may just help me get through the crunch of starting. We shall see. Today I made it through. I'll try again tomorrow!
