What We're Eating

avskkavskk Posts: 1,790Member Member Posts: 1,790Member Member
Autumn has fully arrived and I'm cooking about it.

Breakfast: toaster waffles with yogurt butter and syrup, fried ham, coffee.

Lunch: leftover chili with cheese, sour cream, and a few corn chips. I'm having a fairly small portion of this (it's... not at all "light"), so if I'm still hungry I'll have some broccoli, baby carrots, and cherry tomatoes.

Dinner: leftover vegetable-loaded chicken-tortellini soup.

Snacks: clementines, grapes, or pomegranate.

    Breakfast - zoats with melted American cheese and salt and pepper

    Lunch - Amy's organic tortilla casserole and black beans microwave dinner with the rest of the zucchini from breakfast mixed in for added volume

    Dinner - 1 oz pasta with roasted orange bell pepper, steamed corn and/or peas if I have them, and about an ounce of shredded cheese. Side of steamed asparagus (I buy the microwave steam in bag asparagus and DH and I usually eat a whole bag each 😬)

    Snacks - not sure yet... thinking of trying an angel food cake recipe I found yesterday

    Breakfast: home made plain yoghurt with blueberries, strawberries and a handful of Kashi granola, two cups of coffee

    Post run snack: bunch of tangerines

    Lunch: Sausage and bell peppers baked in the oven, and a pita. I might add some sweet potato, we'll see.

    Snacks: out and about so tub with carrots, cheese, grapes, nuts, crackers

    Dinner: I'm getting home on the late side so if I'm crazy hungry I might pick something up and to hell with the cals today. Been thinking about a tostada salad and a quesadilla from El Pollo Loco all week lol. Or if I make it home with my discipline intact, some microwave rice, frozen gyoza and broccoli.

    Late night munchies: all week instead of Halo Top or whatever, because it's been colder, been enjoying a little bowl of sliced apples, walnuts or cashews, couple chunks parmesan and some crackers.

    OK well my nice plan went out the window. I'm having a 10am roast beef sandwich and crackers. The runger is real.

    Breakfast: 2 homemade cinnamon rolls
    Morning snack: another cinnamon roll. :D
    Late lunch/early dinner: roast, baked mac and cheese, mashed potatoes with a smidgen of mushroom gravy, and grilled green beans. Probably also a beer.
    Dessert: Might have a slice of vanilla raspberry cake - without the icing.

    Cheat day today and part of tomorrow, as the bf and I are away for the weekend staying with friends. Gunna get back on track Monday!

    It's my birthday, so I ate all of the things and ok with that!

    Breakfast: 8 oz. peach noosa yogurt (I usually eat half) and black coffee
    Lunch: bento box (Japanese restaurant) with sushi & tempura vegetables and 1 cup sake
    Mid-afternoon: Starbucks venti iced Americano & an extra shot of espresso
    Dinner: bowl of French onion soup and 1/2 toasted chicken salad sandwich (another restaurant so all very creamy, buttery, a nightmare calorie-wise I am sure)
    Dessert: a big slice of the huge chocolate chip cookie my husband made for me, with Roastaroma tea

    When I type it all out, it doesn't sound nearly as crazy as it felt to me.

    Happy birthday! It sounds like you had a delicious, fun day.

    I had a killer breakfast this morning -- I cubed and quick-fried a leftover baked potato in a little yogurt butter with various spices, fried a couple of eggs over-medium and put them on top, and basically achieved enlightenment. I rarely have time to really cook breakfast, so it was super nice on a random Tuesday!
