Day 1 – morning – The preparations begin

Breakfast
Low fiber breakfast cereal – grits.

 

“I’ll make grits this morning.” I thought to myself before getting out of bed. The directions said to have a “low fiber breakfast” and under cereal it said “rice or corn.” I knew I had a bag of coarsely ground corn meal that I bought to make polenta about a year ago, so why not take this opportunity to use up some of that stuff that gets forgotten in the cupboard.

Protein drink

There were other “low fiber options” on one of the instruction sheets I was given for the preparation; eggs, tofu, milk products, protein drinks, and soup. “Meat and fish are ok to have” the instructions included. I decided to have a protein drink as well. Pumpkin protein and orange juice, even though orange juice wasn’t specifically mentioned. Or does it go under the “No seeds, nuts, bran, oats, wheat, fresh vegetables, fruit or salad?” Oops, I think I should not have had my type of protein drink. Perhaps they were thinking of that stuff called Ensure or something like that.

Well, breakfast wasn’t so bad. I was able to have coffee, so I’m happy. Lunch will look similar to breakfast. I have some leftover grits that I will eat with some chicken stock and perhaps I’ll throw in some small shrimp for the “meat.” I’ll have to eat this before 12:30 pm, since after this time I’m told to only have clear liquids.

I’m afraid of what is to come later today. Luckily, I had my morning constitutional despite the low fiber breakfast. I hope that will make tonight a little easier.
