I will help with the cooking spray - 53 calories.

The whole pan is a single serving and not even all I ate for lunch. If no one gets close by tomorrow I will give a hint.

    I am horrible at guessing calories, which is why I measure everything I can to the gram. But I'll guess approximately 1000-1200 calories.

    I am not a volume eater myself. If I make stirfry I have 250 grams plus 1 serving of white rice for dinner and then I'm full. Snacking is my real downfall. I would easily go back every hour and eat another two Oreos all day long not out of hunger, mostly boredom.

    Is your glass plate tared out of the full plate weight?

    Egg whites with a little coloring and a thickening agent.

    Egg beaters and/or egg whites are a dieter’s friend. You really get bang for your calories.

    548 broken down as follows:

    Calories - description - qty
    250 Egg Beaters 10 servings @ 25 calories
    100 white rice 1/2 c
    11 mushrooms 1/2 c
    15 broccoli florets 1.5 oz
    7 fresh spinach 1 c
    96 cocktail shrimp 1 c
    8 diced onion 1 oz
    8 diced green peper
    53 cooking spray

    Got me thinking about creative ways to manage calories for volume eating.
    Enjoyed the post, thank you!

    No white rice.

    That is a 14 inch pan and the final product is just shy of 3 pounds of cooked food so you have to up all of your quantities. The onion for instance is ~6 oz not 1.

    Is that cauliflower?
    I figured so far 1 bag of shrimp, so about 750g frozen; but about 400g cooked.
    This would leave 900g cooked.
    The egg beaters (which I thought were full eggs initially), would be about 300g.
    So we're down to 600g
    I figured about 300g "rice" and 300g for the "rest of the veggies"
    But if that's not rice?!?!?!
    Boy: that's a tough one!

    OK: I give up!

    I'll go with: it is relatively not energy dense (egg-beaters, veggies, shrimp which is at 1 Cal per gram at best).

    So 1K Cal for the 1300g :smiley:

    It was riced cauliflower. The shrimp was already cooked. It weighed 198 grams which I logged as 200.

    The total weight can be a little misleading. Because there is not much oil and I put 8oz of mushrooms in it the water content remained high but that also makes it more filling. That is one of my staple dishes. I can shave 300 calories off of it when I want or add more to it. It's base version supplies about 60g of protein and 19g of fiber. With the shrimp that is about 120g of protein. I am not saying anyone should eat it but if anyone was curious as to how I eat that is one of the cornerstones and I eat something like it at least 5 days a week. I can change it enough to keep it from getting too monotonous but even if I couldn't it covers so much of what I need that it makes the rest of the day easier. I am, as you probably know, all about easy.

    The dish was logged at 772 calories so really any guess 720-820 would have been accurate enough. @fred77 came in closest at 600.



    Someone else want to post a dish?
