    Pork banh mi.

    yum, i always wanted to try one of these and a place opened up near me that makes them. About how many calories in that?

    My guess is 500-600 kcal.

    Well reading all yours sounds so delicious. You should join the food group on here. For breakfast i had my two cups of coffee. Then i do my cardio. After working out i make a smoothie. With spinach, carrots, pineapple, strawberries, cuties, bananas. Protein powder usually organic protein powder. Flex seed an peanut butter chunky. If i want more calories. On top. Almond coconut milk an pum juice. 50/50. You got a damn good smoothie. Then for the lunch avocado, tuna dip with onions, peppers, corn. Lemon juice, curry, garlic powder and lemon pepper.

    This weeks lunch is cranberry almond chicken salad and I use a few pieces of celery to scoop it and eat.. an edible spoon :) And I'm having 2 clementines with it.

    Over the weekend I made an apple stuffed pork loin with sweet potatoes and green beans. Leftovers are for lunch today.

    I have the same thing every lunch to make easier on myself: a sandwich with protein and lots of veggies. Currently, I am going through my supply of deli meat, cheese, lettuce, tomato, cucumber, avocado, pickles, and some grainy mustard. It comes to about 420 calories with a side of strawberries.

    I work from home so I have some freedom in my lunches. Today I had boneless pork loin strips grilled on my George Foreman and roasted Brussels sprouts and leeks tossed in olive and truffle oils, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and umami seasoning from Trader Joe's.

    This week, I made Greek turkey meatballs (with oregano, grated onion, parsley, oregano, cumin, coriander, cinnamon, and a touch of lemon zest). Also made tzatziki and a cucumber/red onion/tomato/feta salad. Been taking some to work every day for lunches, along with a whole-wheat flatbread. About 520 calories for all this!


    That looks amazing! I had a kale and spring greens salad with cranberries and leftover turkey meat.

    I meal prep Sunday for the whole week. This week I'm having baked chicken (I seasoned all 5 pieces differently), baked sweet potatoes and sauteed green beans.

    Seasoning each chicken piece differently is a great idea.
