Food Journal Friday - 3/19 thru 3/23
Monday I was on my own for dinner. The Mr had a big after hours project to do at work that of course didn't go well. But I made him the same thing I had so he wouldn't be tempted to go out for a sodium laden dinner with the boys in between. I know I liked it!
A meatloaf panini with spinach and 1 tbsp of BBQ sauce and a small baked potato with 1/2 serving of sharp cheddar cheese. I made his on some asiago peppercorn sourdough that we had but I made mine of TJ's fiber bread. Calories: 632
Tuesday was a new one. We get shirataki tofu noodles on occasion and being that they're 40 calories per bag...that's right per BAG, I usually add some stir fry chicken and veggies to the spaghetti version for a lo mein type dish. This time I added a new to us menu item to the top. Trader Joe's Vegan Mandarin Orange "morsels." Something about that word grosses me out when not preceded with the word chocolate. So I topped the noodles with the chicken but not chicken 'morsels' and a side of roasted garlic brussels sprouts. Note to self: Don't mix the morsels in with wet noodles or the hard work you just did to crisp them up goes out the window. Other than my faux pas, it was good and we'll likely be getting the morsels again but putting them over brown rice. Calories: 456
All I can say is thank God Wednesday's dinner was easy. I got really shaky during my workout and didn't have physical strength to do a long, culinary masterpiece. TJ's Pacific Stuffed Flounder over TJ's Quinoa Duo (with zucchini & sweet potatoes). Calories: 610
Thursday was chicken quesadillas with lacy cheese, chipotle hummus, onions & hot taco sauce with a side of russet potato home fries. Calories: 520.
Tonight's dinner changed last minute but the sodium and calories were similar to what I had planned so no biggie. Half of a caramelized onion and prosciutto tart from TJ's and no salt tortilla chips with hummus and salsa. It had to be quick and easy since we have stuff to get done. Unfortunately because the tart is so thin, it doesn't hold you very long. Boo. Calories: 470
