A warning to everybody on here: do NOT try to gain weight on just vegetables. It won't work. I tried. Now I'm suffering from extreme IBS. I tore my intestines up with too much fiber. Oi.
Now, even though I'm scared, I'm adding in more grains and fats (but not dairy, no meat.) I absolutely HAVE to get myself healthy before college this fall... so I have no choice. I just pray that my face doesn't break out! (I may be just paranoid, but it seems like my forehead is getting a little bumpy...)
BREAKFAST: eggs, some applesauce, slice of whole-wheat toast with tons of peanut butter
LUNCH: Salad with romaine, spinach, cucumbers, carrots, and balsamic vinaigrette
DINNER: Salad with romaine, spinach, cucumbers, sweet bell peppers, roasted green beans and carrots, zucchini sauteed in olive oil, kidney beans, pumpkin seeds, dried cranberries, and balsamic vinaigrette
DESSERT: Single-serve blueberry crisp: 2 cups blueberries with a topping made of 2 tbsp oats, 2 tbsp whole wheat flour, 1 tbsp brown sugar, 1 tbsp butter, baked in 350*F oven for 30 minutes and then broiled for a minute to get a nice crust. Topped with a ton of melted peanut butter!
Still lots of veggies, but a LOT more fatty/sugary/carby things. Eeeee... so scared. I wish I could just eat what I want and enjoy gaining weight... but between my face and my intestines, this is just so STRESSFUL!!
