Daily Eats – 1/25/12

I know, I know, I suck. I said I was going to be posting daily eats posts regularly, and I’ve been failing at that. But I will have you know I’ve been tracking AND photographing what I’ve been eating pretty well. I’ve just been too lazy to actually post them here, go figure. I’m working on it, though, I promise. While I get my act together, here’s a day’s worth of eats from last week. Better than nothing?

Trader Joe’s yogurt (140 cal) plus an unpictured Luna Bar (180 cal)

Leftover homemade bulgogi over white rice with roasted b. sprouts on the side (~450 cal)

A packet of Justin’s chocolate hazelnut butter, sucked right from the packet ahahaha (190 cal)

Family dinner night with the ‘rents: chicken with creamed corn, sauteed spinach, pork, and more brussels sprouts, with brown rice. (??? cal).

Not including dinner, that’s 960 calories, which means I was probably pretty darn close to target in the end. Huzzah! Again, apologies for the slacking on this. I’ll get better… eventually. 😉

Daily Eats – 1/9/12

The day started out with a slice of whole wheat toast (100 cal), a tablespoon of peanut butter (80 cal), and a smear of sugar-free raspberry preserves (5 cal).

Then an apple as a morning snack (80 cal).

The first part of lunch was a serving-and-a-half of my healthy chicken salad (200 cal).

Followed by the rest of my balsamic braised red cabbage (~200 cal). Just as delicious cold as it is hot!

Unfortunately, my stomach started to feel kinda weird before dinner, so I wasn’t feeling up to much. I ended up copping out and making a bowl of ramen (380 cal) and an egg (90 cal).

Total for the day: 1,135 calories. Kind of low! Guess that means there’s time for me to nom on a couple Hershey’s miniatures to balance me out, haha. Win!

Daily Eats – 1/4/12

Yesterday’s eats! Forgive the iPhone photos. Laziness strikes as always again!

I started with ~6 oz. of V8 Smoothie (Strawberry Nanner) watered down with some tap water to create an equal 8 (90 cal).

And a clementine (35 cal).

Lunch was a multi-parter, starting with the good ol’ salad I’ve been enjoying for the past few days — greens, onion, grape tomatoes, craisins, blue cheese, and balsamic dressing (~200 cal).

Followed with a crapton of cornmeal encrusted chicken tenders. I didn’t intend to eat all of them but… you can probably guess what happened, hehe (~300 cal).

1 cup of orrecchiette pasta topped with a homemade sauce which included ground beef, Trader Joe’s Vodka Sauce (SO good), mushrooms, and a crapton of spinach. Delicious. I went back for just a smidgen more afterward, hehe. (~700 cal).

Unpictured: Activia Nonfat Blueberry Greek yogurt (190 cal).

Total: ~1,515 calories. Winning! Still got to work on that inverted pyramid though… whoops.
