    I just made soup for the first time in years (and certainly for the whilst time whilst counting calories). It's insane how few calories home made soup has!

    I had a portion of butternut squash and sweet potato soup, topped with crispy onions and served with a breadstick for a grand total of 143 calories. My biggest mistake was not adding enough seasoning to the batch soup, but I half-expected that, and just seasoned my individual portion (making sure to log, of course). What a difference a bit of salt makes. :)

    I was really happy with the texture. Could have been slightly tastier, but I think that's just because whilst I eat squash, I'm not in love with it. Still, if making soup can get me to increase my veg intake, that's good going. A breadstick is good for the crunch (only need the one) and at 26 calories, totally worth it. I'd miss off the crispy onion next (19 calories) as it didn't stay crispy for long and I'm not sure added much.

    I have 3 other portions in the fridge (will transfer to the freezer shortly) and next, I'll try parsnip and apple. I'd also like to try potato and sweetcorn after my next grocery shop.

    Snack: Black coffee

    Lunch: Salmon and acorn squash

    Worked up an appetite after a longish early morning bike ride, so today is calorie-dense, carb-loaded and has an indulgent after dinner snack #refeed

    Breakfast: Coffee with milk. Sesame seed bagel and guac

    Snack: Coffee with milk. Chicken jerky.

    Lunch: Skipped

    Snack: The last high fiber brownie with some caramel ice cream and some sour candies

    Dinner: BBQ Beef ribs, roasted asparagus and a bourbon cocktail (with organic ginger and lemon juices)

    Snack: Inspired by @fstrickl's picture, I wanted to make a yogurt bowl with roasted cherries and walnuts. Alas, I burnt the cherries beyond recognition after an alarmingly impromptu nap/coma brought on by the humungous dinner. So, umm, it was a yogurt bowl with roasted strawberries and walnuts instead. Used a buckwheat pancake as the "bowl."
