Food Journal Friday - 3/12 thru 3/16
It's been a week full of some decent variety so let's eat!
Let's start off with a really great breakfast oatmeal combo I had earlier that I just fed the Mr this morning and he LOVED it. 1/2 cup quaker oats with 4 oz skim milk, 1 tbsp water, 1 banana, 1/2 tbsp honey, 1 tbsp Better N' Peanut Butter, 1/2 tbsp mini chocolate chips and 1 section of a graham cracker crumbled on top. Calories: 420.
It was SOOOO good. It tastes like eating dessert for breakfast and it keeps you full for a long time. My new fave. Breakfasts and lunches after that were pretty standard. Veggies, fruits, bars and rotating entrees of tuna tacos, turkey sandwich and the like. Let's move on to dinners.
Monday was whole wheat penne pasta with a half and half mix of my favorite meat sauce and half low salt marinara and 1 tbsp of parmesan cheese. We also had an amazing arugula salad but you'll have to wait for Tuesday for the recipe for this filling yummy salad! Total calories 657.
Tuesday was a new recipe I tried and I'll be posting it in the near future. Red snapper with barley and orzo with a side of brussels sprouts (not pictured). It was quite yummy! Calories: 569
Wednesday was one of the Mr's favorites, BBQ chicken naan pizza. 2.5 oz of chicken, hummus, bbq sauce, scallions and cheese with a side of russet potato wedges with Mrs Dash Fiesta Lime seasoning. Calories: 652
Thursday was TJ's white ruffy over lemon pepper alfredo with roasted garlic. I don't know what the deal is but TJ's white ruffy has tasted really bad lately so I'm taking the last package of it we have back on Sunday. The texture has gotten dry and it's not appealing so I'll have to replace it with salmon. Better for my cholesterol anyway. Calories: 696
Tonight's dinner was mexican stuffed shells and the recipe will be coming but suffice it to say, it was quite yummy! Calories: 804
Last night's dessert was different. We're annual Walmart shoppers. We go once a year because we just can't deal with the 'people of Walmart' and I somehow talked myself into those little sponge cakes for strawberry shortcake (which I don't like) but I made my own twist on them. The first one above is a sponge cake, a container of sugar free chocolate pudding, way too much cool whip lite and 1/2 tbsp of mini chocolate chips. Calories: 200
Tonight's was a little experiment that turned out quite well. I took 1 cup of fresh diced pineapple and added 2 oz of orange mango juice with a hit of vietnamese cinnamon and cooked it down until it was soft and reduced. Then 2 tbsp of cool whip lite. It was YUMMY! Calories 175
Calories for the week by day:
My average is a little less than the 2300 but that's okay, it's still upping my calories so yes, I stuck with that this week. Fingers crossed on the scale tomorrow!
I hope the food was worth waiting for!
