Hunger Challenge Day 3: A New Day and a New Outlook

I think the angel food cake and strawberries saved me (ha ha…there’s a pun in there). It was the first thing I had all week that made me feel like I was not eating on a budget. I would highly recommend a “splurge item” for any other Hunger Challenge participants if you have the money.

I ate pretty simply today.

Breakfast was oatmeal with brown sugar and coffee from home.Notice anything familiar on my computer screen? No? They why aren’t you following the San Francisco Food Bank on Facebook?

For lunch I had a pepperoni pizza lean pocket. I actually love these.

For dinner I got a little more creative. I knew I was having leftover chili but wanted to disguise it since this was the third day in a row that I was having it. I turned it into a chili baked potato and had a side salad. It was delicious. I would consider it a comfort food.Christoph on the other hand ordered take out. I was handling it pretty well until he pulled out dessert. Mango sticky rice! It’s one of my favorite things to eat (dessert or not). I love it so much that I had it as part of my send off dinner on Saturday night before starting the hunger challenge. I can’t believe he did that! But, I thought this might happen.

How many more days left of this challenge? Ugh. Four more.
