    Breakfast: the Protein Plate at our local diner. 4 scrambled eggs, 3 pieces of bacon, 2 slices of Canadian bacon. I could only eat half the eggs, lol.

    Supper: Grilled cheese (on cauliflower sandwich thins), stuffed full with garlic and pepper ham, a little bacon, provolone and cheddar. Nice big salad with balsamic vinaigrette.

    What is the difference between normal bacon & Canadian? As I am keto (8yrs) I’d love this. Not sure what cauliflower sandwich thins are either but guess we don’t get them in the UK where I am at the moment and definitely not in Cape Town where I usually live if it wasn’t for covid.

    Did SO well until dinner... but my IC was flaring and the thought of the tomato sauce in the leftover pasta I was supposed to have made me wince in pain. So I ordered in something I was craving AND I knew would be safe.

    You may think of Canadian bacon as normal bacon.

    Quick lunch update: I split a burger and a salad with my BFF at the local pub. The food was mediocre, verging on bad, but the company was great and I left plenty of room for pizza tonight! I'm considering this a serious win in my ongoing "just be normalsauce about food" endeavors. I usually panic about sharing food ("what if there's not enough, what if I'm still hungry, what if the other person eats all the good parts"), and I tend to obsess over subpar meals ("that wasn't GREAT, it wasn't AMAZING, what's the POINT if it's not MAGICALLY DELICIOUS at EVERY MEAL," etc.), so to split a subpar meal, shrug, and live with it is a major turning point for me.

    I get that too!! I feel really bummed and anxious if I eat a meal and its not great, and I obsess over it. My boyfriend cooks a lot and sometimes chooses things that I don't necessarily hate, but I'm like why bother eating this, it isn't my favorite and this will be what I have to deal with until the next meal. Need to work on being "normalsauce" (love that) myself.

    Lately I've had no idea for dinner..I've been waiting to see how hungry I am and what I have a taste for..I usually go with something snack like and have a larger portion if I'm really hungry.
