Daily Eats – 9/1/2011

This ain’t going to be pretty, what with the iPhone pics and all, but in dedication to me Septembering my resolve, I figured I had better throw a Daily Eats post up stat. Behold!


Banana – 70 calories

Plus an unpictured slice of whole wheat toast (100 cal) with <1 tbsp PB (~80 cal) and 1 tbsp organic strawberry preserves (30 cal)


5 dolmas (stuffed grape leaves) – 175 calories


Homemade veggie taco salad with vegan soy protein crumbles and a salsa + greek yogurt dressing (~350 cal)

1 serving (9 chips) Krinkle-cut Kettle chips – 150 cal


1 tbsp PB (100 cal) and 6 celery sticks (5 cal)

Oh Nuts! Dried fruit mix from HLS swag bag – Not sure of calories so I’ll guess conservatively. ~200 maybe?


1/2 cup rotini pasta (~100 cal) with 2 pieces squash (10 cal) and a small grilled chicken breast (about 3 oz; ~150 cal)


A disgusting-looking but rather tasty winged attempt at microwaved Nutella cake a la Cassie. I reeeeeally need to stick to recipes, hahaha – ~250 cal.

Total: 1,770 calories

Not too bad. Not great, but not too bad. Onward!


  1. Looks good — I love dried fruit but I hate that it is so calorie dense. I eat a handful, am still hungry even though I apparently ate 300 cals or so? What the heck?

    • Sugar. It always defeats me. Why do you taste so good, but make me feel so (emotionally AND physically) bad!?

  2. I’m so excited for the return of daily eats. I used to chronicle my daily eats on a word doc at work shhhh! (I didn’t do the calories, just to see healthy or not so healthy patterns). Your committment to daily eats re-inspires me to better manage my own eating habits.
