This recap will be very brief -- despite a very busy week, I'm happy with keeping up my healthy habits. I'm still fitting in my workouts and I am really enjoying the mini-meals that I announced last week I'd be trying. I think it helps me control portion size if I know that I get to eat again soon!

I've had something to do in the evening every day. On Thursday I went to a Miss California party with one of my roommates, who is interning for a company that works with the Miss USA program.
That's Miss California and Miss Teen California. It was a weird party -- everyone was just walking around, trying to figure out who was important. It was really boring and we left after just a couple hours!
On Friday I stayed in to prep for an early audition on Saturday morning. My audition went great! It was really fun. On Saturday night I went to a friend's birthday party and did not go to two Memorial Day parties I was invited to. I just didn't have the desire to go to all of them.
Food Diary (Sunday):
1) Tofu jerky
2) Green smoothie
3) Baked beans with broccoli
4) Pumpkin pudding
5) Tofu jerky
6) A few pieces fresh pineapple
I made more dehydrator tofu jerky, but this time I froze and thawed the tofu and sliced it thinner. I think next time I will not freeze it and try slicing it even thinner. I'm surprised at how little tofu shrinks while dehydrating. But the end result was delicious!
I also made a big green smoothie today using my new Sun Warrior protein powder.
I can't even believe how much kale I packed in there. I used about half a bunch of kale (stalks and all) - maybe four cups, plus a handful of spinach, 1/3 cup broccoli, a banana, a scoop of Sun Warrior, a little of my green stevia, a teaspoon of spirulina, some cinnamon, a couple pieces frozen mango and raspberries, and water. Despite all that green it was seriously delicious!
SO MUCH GREEN.
It made all this:
Plus a little more.
I'm also trying sprouting some lima beans, just out of curiosity. We'll see how it goes!
How was your weekend?
Do you like doing mini-meals? Do you find that it helps you with portion size, or does it just result in eating more?
