My perfect day of eating

I’m pretty strict about what I eat most of the time. To make it convenient, though, I tend to eat the same meals, and day of meals, over and over again. I eat for fuel, not for pleasure. (Man, that sounds so sad, doesn’t it? I do allow myself one cheat meal a week. Then I eat for pure gluttonous pleasure.)

Anyway, I notice that one certain day’s worth of meals makes me feel particularly good, keeps me within my macros, gets me all 21 Day Fix colored boxes in the right proportions, and results in a good weigh-in the next day.

I call it My perfect day of eating and it goes like this.
