I did well on Monday (well, it's not even 6:30pm Monday here yet, but I don't plan on eating anything else calorically-dense tonight), so time to plan for Tuesday!

I skipped my oatmeal on Monday and had turkey burgers w/bacon and cheese on wheat buns for dinner instead of the orange chicken. I LOVE the orange chicken, so I made a batch of it anyway and split it into 4 containers to bring for lunches for the rest of the week--that way, I can have it 4 times instead of just 1 night ;)

And so, Tuesday's plan:

Kashi Heart to Heart cereal w/banana and skim milk
sandwich - ham, turkey, provolone, and soy mayo on whole grain bread
Lean Cuisine - chicken pecan (with rice and snap peas)
orange chicken and broccoli (homemade)
Healthy Choice meal - classic chicken bbqThat's less than 1500 calories total (1471 per Fitday), so I might add a snack after dinner (some soy crisps or sugar-free pudding or something).

Jilly, the marinated baked chicken breast you turned me onto came out GREAT! Could you please post a few of your recipes? Maybe for the orange chicken and tell me which marinades you're using as lots of them are very high in calories. I finally found a barbeque marinade that wasn't too bad, but the others were very fattening. Let me know which brands you're using if you have time.

I finally found a barbeque marinade that wasn't too bad, but the others were very fattening. Let me know which brands you're using if you have time.
Here's for the orange chicken:
I don't really measure things, so I will try to be as specific as possible. I did measure some ingredients yesterday to try for a more accurate calorie count, so let's see if I can remember correctly:

1 package (mine was about 1.33 pounds, I think) of boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into chunks (I use 99% lean tenderloins--easier to cut into small pieces)
Marinate and cook in the following mixture (I cook it in a wok so I can add the broccoli all to the same pan):
3-4 T soy sauce (I use reduced-sodium)
1/2 cup orange juice
1-2 white cooking wine
2 t ground ginger
2 shakes crushed red pepper
garlic and/or onion powder to taste
3 T honey
Once the chicken is cooked, add 1 jar sugar-free (or no sugar added?) orange marmalade. Cook and stir until the marmalade mixes with the rest of the sauce and the chicken is cooked.
Add 2 small bags of frozen broccoli florets and cook to desired crispness.I made this last night and split it into 4 containers for lunch for the next 4 days. The chicken and all sauce ingredients come to about 260 calories per serving (when using the above amounts for 4 servings--I didn't worry about the number of calories in the broccoli).

As for other marinades, I just use whatever sounds good. The beauty of marinating rather than baking in a sauce is that most of the marinade stays in the bag (or whatever container you used to marinate the meat). I just use Ken's or whatever is on sale. I don't worry much about actual fat grams since I typically have very very little fat in my diet anyway,so I'm not too worried about how many grams come from a few tablespoons of marinade.

I did find a bbq sauce at Whole Foods yesterday that is only 25 calories for 2 Tablespoons and is all organic, which is nice--it's usually hard to find things that are both organic AND low-cal. I had some on my turkey burgers last night, and it tasted fine to me.
