What We're Eating Weekly

I thought we'd try turning this into an ongoing thread -- a couple of people have asked about carrying on into Thursday, etc. and it seems like it could be fun to post each day. If it sucks, we can always go back to just making it a Wednesday thing! Today I'm having...

Breakfast: a pre-grocery day odd assortment comprising one chicken drumstick, two soft-boiled eggs, a slice of sourdough toast with blackberry jam, and coffee with peppermint mocha cream.

Lunch: will be a cold baked potato, cold steamed broccoli, and more cold chicken (can y'all tell I'm scraping leftovers here?)

Dinner: will be a simple zuppa Toscana, heavy on the kale.

Snacks: I honestly doubt I'll snack today, but if I do it'll be popcorn or an apple.

    Breakfast: I finished off the breakfast sausage I'd bought for Christmas 2017 breakfast. I included a slice of my homemade wheat bread and a spoonful of raspberry jam which I'm finishing off from no telling how long it's been hiding in there.

    Lunch: I'll have a bowl of leftover chili which I cooked yesterday along with a slice of cornbread which I cooked yesterday and froze overnight.

    Dinner: I'll have a homemade pizza with meatballs.

    This leaves me with 600+ calories to otherwise use.

    Any exercise I decide to do will add to that.

    Breakfast: 2 homemade chocolate chip cookies
    Lunch: Shrimp flavored ramen with an egg added
    Dinner: Leftover taco skillet
    Dessert: Probably coffee because I didn't have any this morning, blueberry almond oatmeal cups, maybe another cookie if there's any leftover because I still have calories to spend.

    Not the best day for food choosing due to lack of planning, but tomorrow will be better!
