Daily Eats – 9/2/2011

Breakfast

Repeat of yesterday:


Naner: ~70 cal

Unpictured whole wheat toast with small smear of Nutella: ~150 cal

Snack


Quaker Oatmeal Squares cereal: 210 cal

Lunch


Trader Joe’s Alaskan salmon frozen dinner w/spinach orzo: 350 cal

Snacks


Wasabi almonds: ~150 cal


Krinkle-cut kettle chips: 150 cal (must stop eating free office food.)

Dinner


Mixed green salad with raw corn, bell pepper, cucumber, onion


Butternut squash potstickers (!!)

Dessert


12 oz. cup of Taro (!!!) and mango fro-yo topped with fruit, coconut, and a single mini-Twix: likely (hopeful) overestimate of ~300 cal

I met up with Ania tonight at T.H.A.I. in Shirlington for dins. I wanted to save room for frozen yogurt, so I took dinner light, and successfully avoided my delicious Thai pitfall foods (namely, panang curry and pad see ew… nommm.)

Then I ate my weight in frozen yogurt. Seriously. TARO FROYO. SO delicious. Who knew?!

Known calorie counts: ~1,380 not counting dinner. So the overall damage probably wasn’t TOO outlandish (the salad is negligible but the potstickers were pan-fried) even with the ridonk amount of froyo (which is why I love froyo. Because it’s like 70 – 90 calories per half-cup at Yogiberry!)
