Food Photo Challenge Day 1 Complete

I drank 72oz water today! Holy crap! I NEVER drink enough water (I do however, drink entirely too much coffee) but today I rocked it! And I only had 2 cups of coffee.

I'm not sure how to get my pictures from Instagram onto here, so I'll just post a summary (from my food tracker at SparkPeople.com), and if you want to see the pics, click on the Instagram link.


As you can see, I still have some calories left, but I don't think I'm going to use them.

And I have no idea what I'm going to eat tomorrow since I used up the last of my salsa, guacamole, and salad stuff today. I better get in the kitchen and roast up that head of cauliflower that I can't decide what to do with, and then I'll hit up the grocery store on my way home from work tomorrow night.

I did 35 minutes on the Elliptical for a total of 4.31 miles and 318 calories burned. I'm trying to NOT run for the rest of the week, but I think by Friday I'll go batshit crazy if I don't get on the treadmill ;) We'll see.

Hi Laura! I've always been so curious about what you eat, so now I get a chance to see it. So your little dessert is your flavored coffee. That's what I've been having for a treat too. :D

Hi Marion :) Nah, that coffee is my normal all-day drink most days. I'm trying to limit my coffee and up my water intake though. So far so good!

Super easy to make - 1/2 cup tahini, 1/2 cup water, 1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce, 1/4 cup lime juice, 1 Tbsp Agave and 1 Tbsp minced garlic. Whip it all together and throw it in the fridge :)

Hello Laura,

I hopped over from Allan's blog to say way to go on the food/photo project. And thank you for the tahini lime dressing recipe. I just discovered tahini a few months ago and it was love at first sight. I will definitely make that dressing. Hope you have a great weekend.
