I realized as soon as I posted it was in the wrong spot, duh, but thanks
Disgruntledone & Mazza for responding you two. I am trying so hard to eat right but have no idea how to keep track of the calories once I mix foods together. Disgruntled your lasagna sounds wonderful, see I would not think to add veggies.
Mazza thank you for your menu, this is what I am trying to figure out, say when I make a salad with stuff figuring out calories.
I just bought a bunch of grain cereals, beans etc, stuff I have not eaten before.
tonights supper is Spinach, black beans, tomatoes cooked together, with a half a chicken breast.
thanks guys, I may ask this question in the diet forums for more help, you guys are a great help.

I buy it at my local grocery store - they sell it in most supermarkets.
I usually get the brand "Maille" - or even masterfoods.

Unfortunately, I don't know if either of these brands is available in the US - but if you check your local grocer, it should be right next to the normal mustards.

It goes great as a salad dressing when combined with some water to dilute it a bit. It's got the whole mustard seeds and I personally like the texture. It is rather spicy though (Maille) but there are milder versions (e.g. Master foods).

Most grocery deli areas have whole grain mustard. This is the one I get at my Publix.

a typical day for me consists of around 1600 calories or less :

Breakfast: whole grain pancakes, french toast, or oatmeal. If i have pcakes or ftoast i pair it with an apple and turkey bacon.
Lunch: Varies the most. Could be leftovers, veggie quesadillas, turkey sandwich w/ carrots and ranch, salads
Snacks: Crackers with laughing cow cheese, string cheese, yogurt, fruit, veggies, almond butter
Dinner: Tonight i had grilled bbq chicken with a sweet potato and mixed veggies. We eat ground turkey a lot at dinner too. In chili, tacos, or meatloaf, we sometimes make burgers. I also aim for 2 veggies.
Desert: not every day, but dove dark chocolates, pudding cups, hot chocolate are my favorites. (notice a chocolate trend here )
