that I was sure it should have been a sin ;)

Thankfully the MASSIVE amount of food that I ate added up like this

10 baby carrots: 40 calories
1/4 medium red pepper: 25 calories
1 cup snap peas: 40 calories
10 cucumber slices: 10 calories
2 hard boiled eggs: 160 calories
1 medium whole wheat pita: 160 calories
3 T roast red pepper hummus: 90 calories

525 calories :) OMG so full. So filling. The best kinds of dinners!!! And for the record I was all preplanned the night before ;)

filling foods!

I'm currently stuck in a hotel without transportation (was dropped off) so my dinner consisted of a pack of peanuts from the vending machine! Can you guess how many calories they were? 420!!! So many calories for such a little bit of food (but the protein should hold me off till I eat some complimentary breakfast in the morning).

I was thinking today that I eat some weird meals that probably wouldn't fly if I had a family who needed to eat too...

Tonight I SO didn't feel like cooking. I ate a bowl of 1% cottage cheese, a cup of tomato soup, and a huge bunch of broccolini. and even that I ate kind of spaced out. Cottage cheese. Still hungry. Tomato soup. Still hungry. Broccolini. I could eat more, but I don't feel like making anything else.

But I still think my weird dinner might beat peanuts! :D

oh no! I really feel for you. I HATE that when I'm travelling and I get stuck with high calorie low density foods. Hang in there.

cottage cheese, tomato soup and broccolini sounds right up my alley.

Today, I ate roasted beets and cauliflower. Very filling. I feel like I swallowed a basketball.

LOL! I was worried for a minute cfmama and then was pleased to see your post!

Tonight was "grab bag" night. I plan one night of the week to eat leftovers or other food that we bought but haven't eaten yet. I had a bowl of veggie soup and leftover grilled chicken tenders. Not exactly gourmet, but it gave me time to get an extra long workout session in.

I did pretty well tonight...

6 oz whole grain spaghetti (Ezekiel);
1c spaghetti sauce (homemade, and I'm pretty careful);
large green salad with minimal dressing (I don't really like dressing).

Spaghetti combo was @480 calories...it felt positively sinful to eat pasta of any kind. Total calorie intake today was @ 1600 - right on target. Feeling very full indeed. Have a class to teach in about 10 minutes, and then at home I'll do a short workout afterward.

I am also sooooo full after eating a roasted garlic chicken and creamy spinach Lean Cuisine. 180 calories, 20gr. protein, and 8 carb.
My DH was out tonight and I only eat Lean Cuisine when I am only cooking for me and too lazy to do much. My boys wanted waffles and eggs so it was a -once in awhile- of no cooking for me tonight.

It was soccer practice night so I whipped up a pot of ww chili. Yum-o!
So filling and only four points per cup. That and a side salad with balsamic vinegar as dressing and a small dinner roll filled me right up :)

I got home at 6:30, was freezing cold and super tired, so my dinner was 6oz of rotisserie chicken (no skin) and a Clementine. Good enough. 300 calories.

Lunch was way better though, I had one of those whole grain sandwich thins with 1/4 of an avocado, sliced tomato, romaine, and dijon mustard on it, and a side of baby carrots with pine nut hummus, with a bowl of Healthy Harvest Italian Wedding Soup. Total was 350 calories.

Baked chicked, baked sweet potatoes and carrots steamed and some corn. Not very creative but satisfying and healthy.

Glad to hear it! I am still pretty new here and getting to know you guys, so I am sure as time goes on I will see that more. It's obvious from your progress that you don't have too many off-plan days. You've accomplished so much and are an inspiration to me and many others.

A hamburger (as in, meat, no bread, just the meat) from the supermarket with a single portion of mashed potato and 400g of steamed veggies.

I'm actually going to burst.

Stuck at the hospital - can I just tell you Iowa weather is as bad as I've ever seen it this year and I've lived here my entire life? Anyway - a can of vegetable soup that I keep in my locker for emergencies and a salad I cobbled together in our cafeteria. They talk all "we promote health" but it's like pulling teeth to get something healthy from our cafeteria! They cook the veggies to death and the salads are all iceberg. Yuck! So I get one little dish of their awful lettuce and two packs of fresh veggies and dip. Throw out the dip, chop up the veggies, top with some cottage cheese. I'm glad to be back home today where there's real food.

We had peppered pork chops (recipe I found here that is d-e-licious!), mashed potatoes, and sweet peas. Yummy. Total cals: 347 :D

I'm sitting at 1272 cals consumed today, with 237 "in the bank" to eat (target of 1509). I might just have some skinny cow ice cream for 100 cals to treat myself for a week well done.

ubergirl - how do you make the rutabagas? I have never had them but would like to try them. What do they taste like/what is similar?
