Food Journal Friday 5/20-25

Food Journal Fridays are back!  It's been too long and trust me, you don't want to see the stuff I ate the previous two weeks on vacation.  HA!  

Let's eat!

Sunday's dinner was to make up for 2 crappy steaks I had on Maui.  I was so looking forward to this one restaurant's teriyaki sirloin with pineapple onion salsa but they killed it so bad after butterflying it that I sent it back.  Ugh.  So I got a filet mignon at Trader Joe's and grilled it a bit then finished it off in the oven with onions and pineapple and steamed some brussels sprouts.  Calories:  577

Monday was a twist on our naan bbq pizza and they were done in whole wheat pockets instead.  A couple ounces of chicken, bbq sauce, marble cheese and 2 tbsp of edamame hummus then toasted with steamed brussels sprouts.  Calories:  541

Tuesday was mahi mahi fish tacos.  Since I forgot to grab broccoli slaw at TJ's, I used some onion and spinach for roughage.  Side dish was 2 tbsp of edamame hummus and a pita pocket cut and baked into chips.  Calories:  531

Wednesday was sauteed then baked swordfish with roasted asparagus.  Calories:  310

Thursday I needed an all veggie side break and we had crab stuffed flounder on a bed of spinach and carrot polenta.  Calories:  610

Tonight was a bbq chicken breast quesadilla on a high fiber tortilla with onion, chipotle hummus and marble cheese and a side of roasted asparagus.  Calories:  401

So I'd say the first week back from vacation was successful.  Calories averaged 2195 for the week and I burned 4650 calories in formal exercise.  My water has been on point at about a gallon a day which is way better than I was doing in the months before we left.  I need to keep that up fo' sho'.

Oh yeah, the autographed cookbook winner was chosen!  Click here to see if it was you.  Thanks so much to everyone who entered and have a great holiday weekend if you're in the U.S.!

  1. Sounds like a great week back! Lots of fresh veggies and fish. Good for you! Mmm crab-stuffed flounder...

  2. No better way to start the week than with a steak like that and with that awesome quesadilla we just enjoyed! It was all wonderful and good for us and I thank you for a great week back!

  3. Yum, I think I would like just about anything that starts off as crab stuffed. Looks like a super meal plan. Way to go!

  4. That looks really yummy. Puts my dinners this week to shame.

    Edamame hummus? Did you make that or buy it pre-made? I have a frozen bag a edamame in my freezer that needs to be used up.

  5. It never fails to amaze me that you put a gourmet meal on the table every single night! One need never feel deprived or on a 'diet' eating like this!

    BTW, I like my fish tacos on corn tortillas with cabbage...ever tried that?
