Day 3 & 4 Week 1 Intermittent Fasting
I was doing well all day until I hosted my book club on day 3. We read the book How to Kidnap the Rich by Rahul Raina. It’s a fun, entertaining book to read if you are looking for some ideas. The story takes place in India, so I decided to serve my guests some Indian food.
I made Chana Masala(which is 100% vegan-plant-based and one of my favorite dishes). If I had only eaten that it would have been good, but I had a little of everything. I should have taken a picture of the spread I had but I will give a quick list of what I prepared.

So as you can see, I had a lot of options. I sampled a little of everything and really didn’t pay attention to the “no sugar, no processed, plant-based plan”). I also had some wine, including the yummy Chocolate Dessert wine.
The good news is I was back on my plan the next day.
It’s okay to have some slips when you are working on changing your eating habits. The trick is to not beat yourself up. I jumped right back into my intermittent fasting the next day. Thankfully I made a large pot of Chana Masala so I had leftovers for the next few days. I’m sure you can guess what I ate on day 4 ? That’s right – Chana Masala for lunch.
Day 4 Quick Run Down
As you already know, I was back on track on day 4. I fasted until lunch.

Hubby and I went out to dinner at BJ’s. I had a beer and a quinoa, black bean, red pepper, corn salad topped with avocado. So I mostly stuck to my “whole food”, plant-based diet.
We had my homemade plant-based chocolate mousse for dessert
Day three – mostly running errands, cleaning house and getting ready for book club
Day four – ran 3 miles
