Day 4 of my Daniel Fast experience included a wonderful celebration dinner with friends from out of town, but also included a little setback…
There’s not a lot to say about Day 4 of my Daniel Plan experience is that we had a wonderful gathering at our home last night, but it showed up on my waist.
The only place I really ‘cheated’ was that I had a piece of my friend Erika’s cornbread after learning that she made it with home-ground corn and it was gluten-free (and EVERYONE raved about it!). Since I’m not doing any grains during the detox, this set me back a bit, but it was sooooo good 🙂
Daniel Plan Experience: Day 4
Breakfast: Cinnamon Almonds and Green Tea
– Because I had a meeting in the morning and didn’t want to take the time to cook, I just grabbed some green tea and a quick snack, knowing I’d eat a heartier meal in lieu of my normal snack.
Snack: Avocado, Spinach & Onion Egg Scramble
*Adapted from the Book*
– I actually mushed avocado into the eggs before scrambling them for the first time. The kids (& my husband for that matter) were very put off by the color, but it actually tasted pretty good!
Lunch: Dr. Hyman’s Black Bean Soup
*Recipe from the book*
– Because of time constraints, I just heated up some of this delicious soup with a cilantro garnish.
– Not on the plan, but it’s what was at hand for me!
Dinner: Slow Cooker White Chicken Chili
– We hosted three other families at our home last night and had a ton of fun catching up. I made Slow Cooker White Chicken Chili (a Whole Foods recipe), our friend Erika made regular chili and Tiffany made her famous taco salad. I had a little bit of each, as well as Erika’s AMAZING gluten-free cornbread.
Weight & Measurements
Overall: 7 pounds lost & 1.5 inches down
