Default Food Journal - Starting October 14

This thread is a place to post your daily food intake to be accountable, and also a place to share new food ideas/recipes and offer each other advice.

Anyone counting calories, WW points, etc. can post their running tally for the day as well.

Default October 14th

Even though it's Thanksgiving, I'll start today.

Breakfast:
1 small onion bagel (5pts)
2 tbsp. LF cream cheese (1 pt)
1 peach (1 pt)
tea

Lunch:
1 haddock filet (5pts)
1/2 c. pasta (3pts)
1/2 c. homemade tomato sauce (0 pts)

Dinner:

Okay, here it is.

I had two tortilla chips with dip with my glass of white wine. (2pts for the wine)

At dinner I had about 4 oz turkey, (4pts)
1/2cup sweet potatoes, (1pt?)
1/2 cup mashed potatoes (2pts)
baby carrots (1 pt for the butter)
1/2 cup stuffing....???? pts
gravy

tea and chocolate silk pie...don't even want to guess!

The measurements were eyeballed, since I didn't actually ask my aunt for a measuring cup, but it was a serve-yourself dinner so I did the best I could.

Tomorrow is another day!


Total Points: Probably close to 40 with dessert
Water: 48oz so far
Exercise: 30 minute walk

Default Low-fat Mexican Dip

My aunt always asks me to bring this dip to family get-togethers, and I thought I'd share the recipe with you all:

Whip 1/4 cup LF cream cheese with 1/4 cup LF mayo.

Spread over surface of plate/platter. It should be a thin layer.

Top with just enough salsa to cover. Too much will make it runny.

Sprinkly finely diced tomato and green pepper on top of the salsa.

Top with grated LF cheddar or marble cheese. Chill.

Serve with a basket of baked tortilla chips.

I worked out the points once, and I think it was about 9 points for the entire dip.

oh my gosh, Wildfire. What an idea THIS was!!

For breakfast I had two buns with butter. Then I had some leftover yummy potato casserole.
I just this minute ate a piece of beef pie. It's good cold. burp.
My SIL has just gone out with my MIL to look for an open grocery store so that we can have a roast tonight. My entire day is shot. I may have another piece of pie.
If they DO find a grocery store that's open, my MIL will come back with bags of food. Lemon merangue (sp?) pie, pumpkin, berry,...

Tomorrow I will journal in earnest. Today I am a porker readying myself for the slaughter.

Wildfire, you mean I can eat that entire plate by myself? It looks yummy. I'll look for some recipes to share...

xoxo

No prob, ellis...Thanksgiving is meant for pie! Tomorrow we will do much better. Those cookies sound yummy. Especially the no bake part. Now, tell me...dried dates....is that like the kind you buy in a brick shape wrapped in plastic? The kind you soak in water to make date squares with?

geez, Mauvais, if that's pigging out, I'd like to see what you USUALLY eat! I ate about 6 times what you ate yesterday!

Yes, Wildfire... dried dates in a block. You don't have to soak them, though. They're supposed to be chewy. Also, I'd skip the step about the glass plate and doily.

Going to be better today. SIL and her partner are leaving today and are making eggs and bacon before they leave. I'm NOT going to have any!

later darlings...

Okay, to add to my journal....

I just had a nap. If I go to bed now, I'll have had; if not a balanced day, at least a comparably low-cal day.

I should start doing the food journal thing again.

Breakfast:
Tea w/sugar & a little 2% milk
1 bowl of Oatmeal

Lunch:
1 can diet Coke
Slice of Buffalo Chicken pizza (chicken & blue cheese on top)

Dinner:
No time to cook before I left for class so:
a PB&J sandwhich
a small (like 2"X2") piece for apple cream kuchen.
another can of diet coke

I know I am not one for a balanced diet, but I am working on it.

I will start journalizing my food intake tomorrow. This is a great Idea. Will help us to see where we are going wrong or right whichever the case may be.
