I will check in tomorrow

I have to have a VERY early breakfast in the morning and eat something I can have and still tolerate exercise afterwards (and will sustain me through 4 hours!).

I think it will be soy yogurt, strawberries, cherries, hemp protein and walnuts!

Ok well I am still new here and still trying to read superfoods rx but I am soooo inspired by it, I have started serving veggies before I even start dinner so that when everyone (kids and hubby) tries to much I have something for them.

B- Oatmeal, T brown sugar, 5 pecan halves choppped, soy milk oh and coffee with raw sugar and soy
L- Big salad with chopped veggies and some leftover chicken
S- Whole Grain Flax toast with homemade strawberry preserves
veggies with dip, cherries
D- Homemade chicken soup from leftover chicken roasted on Friday
S- Fruit roll covered in coconut, dark chocolate (100 cal worth)

Well I think I will have to stick close to that, we will see how many calories it adds up to at the end of the day....Ok so that is what I have had , so far 1482 calories (I am trying to whole foods and calorie count) unfortunatley I am still VERY hungry, having a small cup of coffee and if that doesn't do it will have the toast and jam again (trying to avoid that though cause I am wheat intolerant, just havn't found a good alt yet)

Not sure how great it was for whole foods, I think it was pretty good but then you should have seen my food intake before I decided to change our lifestyle this week

zenor77 - Laoo Dahl sounds really good - I am on a big curry kick right now. Can you tell me where to find a recipe, or can you share?

Yesterday - I did a really good job sticking to the plan...I ate some whole wheat bread with a pat of real butter with my dinner instead of the rice. I also had a turkey breast and ham at Subway instead of the Club, which saved a few cals. Calories for the day ended up at about 1600 - not too shabby.

Tuesday
B - egg white omelette w/ tomatoes, mushrooms, 1 slice no-nitrite turkey bacon, 1 wedge Laughing Cow Lite - honeydew melon
L- turkey breast wrap (FF turkey breast, 2 cups greens, 1 LCLite, 1 lo-carb tortilla) 1 cup organic tomato soup
S - fruit, string cheese, almonds and/or air popped popcorn
D - salmonburger/wild rice pilaf/ salad

edzard has inspired me to make some homemade chicken soup - it just sounds so good! I'll make some of that to eat on the rest of the week.

Have a good day everyone!

Ok well yesterday was great, managed to say under 1800 calories, haven't had to count in sooo long. I was trying for lower but I was just too hungry all night so ended up having some more whole grain bread and preserves. What shall I do today.....drumroll please OH and curry does sound great! I have a great paste I picked up that makes doing curry easy and good.

B-Oatmeal again with brown sugar and pecans and soymilk (I am addicted!)
L-Salad again I think, one more piece of chicken left and it gets me like 4 cups of greens when i have that.
S-Yogurt with fruit (really this time)
D-Cashew chicken (homemade, maybe I will try to throw in some red peppers with the cabbage to veg it up a bit)
S-not sure yet

Well here goes, aiming for another day between 1200 (yeah right) and 1800 calories. mmm hummus gonna have to make that son too.

WOW did I do bad today (tuesday) I had a great plan and it all fell thru ugh! I got thrown off with lunch because time flew, then PMS hit hard by dinner. Pizza won, Pagliacci pepperoni (sigh goood pizza) but not very whole foods.

I am proud of the fact that I ended the day under 2000 calories with some healthy snacks (super foods rx!!) Gonna do better tomorrow!

Thanks, zenor! I don't have any zucchini on hand today, but I may make up the lentils...maybe some carrots, instead...I have many of those. I can see this being a great recipe when my zucchini starts coming out of the garden in August.

edzard - you and I are on the same wave length...TOM - check. Calories for the day - under 2000 ( barely) check. I ate too many cookies - then just got thrown off

A new day, a new plan

B - egg white omelette/ tom/mush/lc cheese, honeydew melon
L - turkey breast wrap/ tomato soup
Snack - airpop popped corn. Curried butter drizzle - I'm going to try this today.. The recipe calls for melting 1/4 c. of butter and 1 t. curry, then drizzling it onto the popcorn. I may make the butter, then spritzs 1 tb, then given the rest to the kids for a snack... I will think of a way to manage the fat on it.
D - salmonburger/salad/ Laoo Dahl ( w/carrots)/rice
