Daily Eats – 7/16/12

Oh hey, remember when I used to do these? Hahahaha…ha…haha. Hokay!



Thomas’ Mini bagel (120) with 1/2 tbsp homemade cashew butter (40 cal) and 1/2 tbsp strawberry cream cheese (25 cal)


Vitasoy soy milk (130 cal)


1/2 cup cherries (36 cal) and 1/2 cup blueberries (41 cal)



2 pieces of leftover fajita steak (~60 cal) with peppers and onions (~60 cal)


2 ounces of grilled salmon (~100 cal) with 2 asparagus stalks (7 calories)



Roasted seaweed (9 cal)


At this point, I failed to take any more photos throughout the day, so I will just summarize the epic fail that was the rest of my day: Chick-Fil-A chicken nuggets & fries (like 900 cal – WHOOPS!), and a bowl of blueberries and whipped cream later for dessert (100 cal), and a Campbell’s Soup At Hand (80 cal).

Total: ~1,708 calories

Oh hey, look at that. Even with all o’ that, I still managed to end up in a reasonable zone. Huh, go figure. Not that I’ll be making a habit of it, it’s just nice not to have to feel TOO terrible about it today.


  1. Hi Gretchen! I’ve been a total lurker for a while now…

    Do you eat enough during the day? It seems like your calories were really low before your dinner. I know when I don’t eat enough calories spread throughout the day, I end up eating anything I can find when I get home from work!

    • Hi Katherine! Thanks for coming out of the woodwork! 🙂

      I definitely find that on some days, I end up not eating a whole lot during the daytime. I just don’t get as hungry while I’m strapped to my desk, and often do find that when I push off eating (especially an afternoon snack before I leave work) I’m more likely to gorge myself at dins. It’s something that I know I can prevent with a little good planning, I’m just bad at planning, hahaha. Working on it though!!
