For my afternoon snack, I had 1 oz of raw sharp cheddar cheese.  Raw means unpasteurized milk is used, apparently, this is easier on the stomach than pasteurized products ( or so it's debated).  I LOVED this cheese.  It was extra sharp and creamy and 1 oz kept me full from about 5:00pm until I ate dinner around 7:30pm..

I did a little shreds after my snack, level 3.  I was DYING.  I think the hardest part is the scissor crunch..I can't keep my legs off the ground, it's so hard for me.

Then I made stuff bell peppers for two (since I am cooking for not only myself, but my sister as well..)
  • 2 red bell peppers
  • 8 oz lean ground turkey breast
  • onions
  • garlic
  • cumin
  • 1 cup black beans
  • 3/4c tomato sauce
Add garlic to sprayed pan.  Let sizzle.  Then add the onions.  Cook until translucent.  Add the meat, cook until all turned white.  Then add the seasoning (add whatever kind you like, I added salt, pepper and cumin).  Finally, add canned black beans and tomato sauce.  

Meanwhile, steam the peppers until more tender.  Scoop the mixture into the pepper and place in the oven at 400 degrees for 10min or so.  Feel free to top with salsa, cheese ect.

I had that beautiful pepper mixture and the pepper plus half the sweet potato in the pic...I was surprisingly full and only ate half...but not full enough for...

ICE CREAM.  Personally, I love plain vanilla ice cream.  Sometimes I add toppings but mostly I eat it plain.  I bought the Breyer's  All Natural has AWESOME stats ~110 cals per 1/2c and about 1.5g fat.  AND it's ALL NATURAL.  No fake sweeteners (so grosss) or colors.

I leave you with this lovely picture of my sister, Rebecca getting shredded!!  You go girl
