Daily Eats – 7/16/12

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

Breakfast

Untitled

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

Untitled

Vitasoy soy milk (130 cal)

Untitled

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

Lunch

Untitled

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

Untitled

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

Snack

Untitled

Roasted seaweed (9 cal)

Dinner

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.

Daily Eats – 4/26/12

Yesterday was one of those grazing days where breakfast, lunch, and the snacks in between all kind of melded together into one long day of eating. ‘Twas glorious.

Untitled

Banana: 70 calories

Unpictured Oatmeal: 100 calories

Untitled

Roasted Maple Brussels sprouts: ~150 calories

Untitled

Mini pickles: 30 calories

Untitled

Luna bar: 180 calories

Untitled

Leftover chicken kapow with brown rice: 200 calories

Untitled

English muffin with spray butter and raspberry preserves: 120 calories

Unpictured Chipotle burrito bowl: 600 calories… and chips (500 calories).

Total: ~1,950 calories

I know, I know, I know, I know, I know. Not my finest choice, getting chips from Chipotle. (Damn their deliciousness!) In my defense (not that I really have one, nor that I especially NEED one since overall I still stayed within a healthy, if over-target, calorie range), I only intended to eat half of my burrito bowl & chips, then take the other half for lunch today, but… yeah. Oh well. Today’s a new day, and I’m already off to a good start!

Daily Eats – 9/19/11

Breakfast


Chobani 0% Lemon (140) with 1/4 cup Cracklin’ Oat Bran (100) and a banana (70)

Snack


Cascadian Farms Organic Mini-Chocolate & Peanut Butter Chip bar (80)

Lunch


Trader Joe’s Vegetable Panang Curry (590 – whoosh!)

Snack


10 blue corn chips (140) with 2 tablespoons homemade salsa (20)

Total Randomness: 2 fat-free beef hot dogs (40 each), a whole wheat quesadilla with 1/4 cup Daiya chedder shreds (190), 1 tablespoon homemade salsa (10), a few random potstickers pilfered from the bro (100?) and 1/2 a cup of steamed green beans (20)

Total: 1,540 calories, give or take. Glad I stayed on target even with the higher-than-usual lunch entree. It sure was delicious for being part of my emergency stash of frozen lunches at work, so I guess that explains why haha. And you’ll be happy to know that those were my last two hot dogs, so I think I’ve officially ended the streak. Plus I got 5 miles under the belt (I won’t even begin to pretend I ran them all, but it’s something at least!)
