21-Day Challenge: First Day

There’s good news and bad news. The good news is Bernard ate our simple salad (made up of tomatoes, cucumber, lettuce, and oranges). I think he loved the olive oil-lemon dressing I had made. It’s a huge accomplishment for him because he doesn’t eat anything that is called or resembles a vegetable (or even fruit).

The bad news is we weren’t able to let go of the rice. I couldn’t think straight. He ended up cheating by eating loaves of bread. Rather than feel extremely bad, we had to give in.

BUT we learned our lesson: right now, we couldn’t live without eating any forms of carb or grain. We just have to get it from somewhere else. I have completely forgotten about protein as well, which also helps curb hunger.

Tomorrow is second day, and we intend to do better.

  1. refreshing kaayo ang salad these days kay summer, lem. 🙂 i usually eat them for dinner. apart from lemon and olive oil as dressing, i suggest you use sesame oil and kanang mccormick sesame goma dressing. 🙂 naa sa asian section sa metro ayala grocery hehe lami and it’s not really heavy.

    you can also add mangoes para tam-is2x gamay. i usually skip on the tomatoes but chong taught me to add green bell peppers (kanang superlarge ones) and parsley :). for the cucumber, i suggest you choose katong japanese variety kay mas gagmay siya so dili siya lain tan-awon for picky and first-time eaters ug salad.

    looking forward sa future posts sa inyo challenge! 🙂
