    Today was a spring mix salad with the mixed greens, tomato, mushrooms, red onion, bell pepper, and topped with some sunflower kernels and a olive-oil and vinegar dressing.

    Didn't get a photo of that, but I did make one of my late dessert! LOL

    Homemade Banana Nut Bread - Yummy! Will be eating only a thin slice, since I've already eaten about all my calories for the day. A somewhat bigger slice will be waiting for me when I get up for breakfast tomorrow. :p

    I tend to save most of my calories for dinner because I am generally not very hungry during the day. This is last nights dinner and is approximately 850 calories. 6oz Sokeye Salmon, blackened and cooked in evoo. Side of sautéed green beans and some sweet potato fries. I technically follow a Keto diet, and I made these fries for my kids, but I had room in my macros and decided to indulge. Normally my dinners are just a large portion of protein and veggies cooked in healthy fats.

    ^^ I hate to stick my nose in but no way that is 850 calories. 650 . . . maybe. Salmon 240 + retained oil maybe 70. Fries 200, green beans 50.

    Was just about to say the same, even 650 would seem high.

    I coat the salmon in evoo to get the seasoning to stick, then cook in a pan with more oil. Then the sweet potato fries and green beans are cooked in oil as well. I only count half of how much oil I actually use assuming that it all isn't absorbed. I use 1T to coat the fish, 2T in the pan and cook the beans in the same pan, then coat the sweet potatoes in oil before cooked.

    There are your mistakes.The salmon is not 400 calories, you can't get 14g of oil to stick to a salmon fillet and what is shown in the photo is not 200 grams of sweet potato.

    But, its your diary.
