Get ready for 4 days of food diaries! I was a bridesmaid at my brother’s wedding, and when we weren’t running around like maniacs, we were surrounded by food. Everything went wonderfully wedding-wise, although all the brunches at fabulous french bakeries plus the huge chinese buffets for lunch/dinner weren’t exactly good for my waistline.
I can’t say I’m proud of my calorie counts the last few days, but I suppose it could have been worse considering the fact that it was a wedding weekend. I need to start making up for it this week–especially since 4th of July (yet another feast day) is in just a few days!
Not to mention, I felt bloated and just generally flabby in all the photos. It was a bit of a reality check–I need to get my eating-out habit under control, and fast.
I wasn’t sure how much healthy food would be available to me while staying at the brides house (they’re Vietnamese so they have all kinds of delicious meat dishes that I can’t eat), so I decided to dehydrate all our leftover fruit that would have been left behind to rot otherwise. I kept some of it as snacks, and included the rest in my own granola bar recipe!
Between the strawberries, blueberries, bananas, and pineapple, I was in dried fruit heaven for the duration of our flight. Unfortunately, we ended up going to a deliciously fattening place afterwards where I gorged myself, since I figured I wouldn’t be able to eat any of the Vietnamese dinner. (Boy was I wrong there.)
