Default What are you eating on your plan?

Just wondering what everyones day of food looks like no matter what plan you are on. Post a sample day of food in this thread Always looking for new ideas of things to eat. I'm not on a so called plan but use calorie count app to count calories and just looking for better options for each meal. This week my goal is to cut out some of the carbs Thanks

I'm not on a plan, but I'm watching calories. 1400 a day is my goal. These are some low calorie, healthy options.

Tuna (in water) w/ Yellow Mustard - 100 calories for whole can
Low Sodium V8 (11.5 oz can) - 70 Calories
Fat Free Butter Popcorn - Approximately 110 Calories for whole bag
Almond Milk Unsweetened Vanilla - 30 Calories for 1 cup
Snap Pea Crisps - 150 Calories for 22 crisps
Special K Chips - Most are about 110 calories for 28 chips

I'm not following a specific plan but I've recently cut refined sugar out of my diet. I try to eat low-glycemic food.

Here's what I ate yesterday:

broccoli & cheddar omelet

handful of cashews

Lunch (leftovers)
tofu and roasted brussel sprouts


lentil and mushroom soup
slice of whole grain bread

~1700 calories

My plan is low calorie (aprox 1200 - 1500) and low carb (aprox 20g - 30g a day).

My day tends to be:

chocolate protein shake mixed with coffee and 4 tablespoons of half and half
220 calories, 4g carbs

low carb/high fiber tortilla, cheese, mixed stir fried veggies, strips of beef, sour cream
570 calories, 13g carbs

chicken salad, roasted veggies or a big green salad with dressing
550 - 650 calories (depends on the dressing), 4g - 6g carbs

for snacks:
dry roasted soy peas
full fat greek yogurt based dip and raw veggies
string cheese

I eat a huge variety of veggies and switch up the proteins (tofu, pork, eggs, shrimp, salmon, etc), but this is the basic template I do everyday.

Ok, I can give you a bad example... Yesterday. I wasn't hungry until 5pm, and I had 2 BBQ chicken wings. A few hrs later I had a cupcake and a coffee, later a spicy beanburger, later another cupcake and another coffee. Welcome to the weird & wonderful world of Intuitive Eating... I think I'll come back here on a "healthy" day with different examples! I.e. I've really taken to cucumber, and hot water with lemon & honey. I love sushi. Used to love pizza but now I can't remember the last time I had one.

I'm doing a sort of intuitive eating approach. I think I had cereal with blueberries for breakfast yesterday...not sure. At lunch I was starving - I'd done almost 2.5 hours of exercise in the morning. I had some stir fried veggies with a small amount of bacon and some left over grits. For dinner I had an amazing stir fry with pan fried tuna steaks. OMG! Those were delicious -I'm normally too scared to cook fish, but it was really easy - and buckwheat soba noodles. I also had a snack of some fruit.

Oh yeah, and I had a TINY sliver of cake. And when I say tiny - I mean tee-ninecy. I wanted, but I knew I didn't want a lot and it was good. I shouldn't have had it though - because I wasn't hungry.

This morning I had one apple and a banana and a pinch of brown sugar and then I went to hot yoga. I wasn't really hungry - which is against intuitive eating, but I know from experience that I can crash out during 90 minutes of yoga if I don't eat something. But I also know it needs to be really light or it sits in your tummy - bad news.

I haven't had lunch yet - but I'm starving. I think we're going to the local greasy spoon. They actually do great salads. I think I'll have an egg, some ham and some salad...and some of my son's fries. :-)

Anything and everything except the food I don't like so I'm no help for ideas lol. Portion control and calorie counting. Which means of course calorie-laden things like fried food, sweets etc is occasional and in small portions. Luckily I'm not one for sweets so it's easy to small portion those. I do tend towards a balance of carbs/protein/fat.

Breakfast: Hard-boiled egg and a Vitamufin

Snack: Apple with cinnamon and a tsp of natural peanut butter.

Lunch: low fat, high carb, whole wheat wrap, turkey, 2 cups of steamed veggies

Dinner: lean meat, veggies, and a starch (either brown rice or a sweet potato)

Snack: Homemade baked oatmeal with tons of blueberries.

Love seeing what everyone is eating on their plans given me some good ideas. I get bored eating the same thing everyday so you all have given me some new ideas to mix it up. Heres what I had
Breakfast- Fruit salad (cut up fruits mixed with lowfat raspberry yogurt) and a small protein shake
Snack- 2 crackers with small slice of block cheese
Lunch- Chicken soup half a turkey sandwich
Snack-broccoli grape pasta salad
Dinner-Garlic braised chicken with roasted carrots (love pinterest)

Looking at my day i need to add more veggies and cut the processed foods.
Do any of you have healthy food boards on pinterest i Love that site turn to it for dinner ideas. Feel free to share your pinterest boards

I will give you the menu I have for today. sometimes I mix it up.

Breakfast: Greek yogurt

lunch: 2 egg omlette with a slice of mozzarella cheese and 2 pieces of turkey bacon

Dinner: 3 oz chicken and a cup of spinach with 2 teaspoons of olive oil

~ ~
Sometimes I will have 3 oz of beef and a piece of cheese on it, with 1/2 cup of cooked mushrooms sauteed in a tsp of olive oil

Greek yogurt I have mostly every day. I am pretty sure I don't get enough calories in per day. I do make sure I get enough protein though. I had days count to around 800 calories, sometimes less, sometimes more but never over a 1000 which as you know my plan is totally not healthy. So,,,, I got to change it somehow.

Let's see the calories for today:

Yogurt: 120 cal
2 eggs package says 70 each comes to: 140 cal
Cheese: package says 70 cal
turkey bacon: 35 each comes to 70 cal
chicken package says 3 oz cooked: 100 cal
spinach can lable says : 1/2 cup each 35 comes to 70 cal
olive oil: 40 cal per tsp total for 2 tsp is 80 cal

grand total: 650

believe it or not, this is a filling day, but I guess I should add more food to it to make it a higher calorie count.

I'm not on a particular plan either, but counting calories!

Breakfast: 16 ounce glass of water
One egg
Whole Wheat English Muffin
1/4 cup shredded cheese

Lunch: 16 ounces water
2 cups Mesclun mix or Kale (or 1 cup of each)
5 scliced baby carrots
1/2 cup sliced cucumber
2 tbs fat free chunky blue cheese dressing
1/2 cup black beans (or 100 cal tuna, or sliced turkey)
1/2 grape tomato

Dinner: 16 Ounces Water
1 cup skim milk

Snacks: Banana

I'm on 1200 calories a day, but usually eat 1400-1500 once I account for the calories I "earn" exercising.

This is something I was really struggling with, the what the heck to eat over and over concept. Well that and portion control, really. I significantly fell off track so for now I am doing a home delivery (healthy) meal plan. It clocks me in at around 1200 calories a day, except one night a week, where I can eat whatever I want, within reason.

Today I had:

Breakfast: sweet potato pancakes, 1 piece of chicken apple sausage, 1T of maple syrup, 1 cup of espresso, 16oz of water

Lunch: lamb rogan josh, brown rice, cauliflower, 16oz water

Snacks: grapes, cheddar string cheese, 20 dark chocolate m&m's

Dinner: chicken breast topped with tomato sauce, green beans, mashed eggplant, 32oz of lemon lime seltzer spiked with 1/4 cup orange juice.

Total calories: 1276
