    Yesterday's menu

    Breakfast: coffee

    Lunch: leftover chicken chili made with chicken thighs, mixed beans/lentils, tomatoes, onion, garlic, peppers, lime, to which I added some chard and spaghetti squash.

    Dinner: Swedish-style meatballs with cabbage, golden beets, and apple.

    All leftover day, so I'll repeat my last post! Only change was I had slightly less of the chili and 2 clementines with lunch.

    Since I am not allowed to count calories by my therapist, this thread has allowed me to at least note what I ate so I can see how I feel. For example, 2 days ago I had a very high fat day and yesterday I paid for it. I should really keep a journal as well...

    Breakfast: 2 eggs, roasted potatoes and cabbage, toast, and green tea
    Lunch: 1 Italian sausage, mac and cheese
    Snack: Strawberry pocky
    Dinner: Chicken pot pie
    Snack: strawberry roll cake and hot chocolate

    Breakfast: oatmeal with peanut butter & raspberry jam, coffee.

    Lunch: Gardenburger patty on toast with mustard, pickle, onion & lettuce. Homemade baked sweet potato fries dipped in ketchup. "Poor man's cannoli" is what I jokingly called my dessert, an extra-thin heel of bread spread with marshmallow creme and about 10 chocolate chips.

    Dinner: homemade veggie fried rice w/ small bits of ham. Later, 2 sugar cookies & coffee.
