What We're Eating

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: crumpets, banana.
    Lunch: cheese & shallot toastie, apple

    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.

    Breakfast: cranberry muffin with a little yogurt butter, cottage cheese, coffee.

    Lunch: I'm kind of torn, so I think half a tomato sandwich on green-chili sourdough and a small serving of leftover Spanish rice with chickpeas and artichokes. Can't seem to just choose one!

    Dinner: meatloaf, garlic mashed potatoes, green beans.

    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!

    I've been hoarding calories for dessert/after dinner snacks since I started, I try to be more even but I find the fullness at the end of the day comforting. Now it's cooling off, my Halo Top and cookies combos have turned into something different. Sliced up honeycrisp apple, couple chunks of parmesan, couple of walnuts and a serving of TJ's multigrain crackers. Ugh so good.
