Simonekp, you're right! I must have typoed something when I input that previously. I just checked again and yes, it's coming out between 120 and 180 for 3-4oz. That brings the total down to closer to 500 calories, which for a single meal lunch is really good.

Take out the string cheese and the walnuts and you still have yourself a healthy lunch. Save the string cheese and walnuts for a snack when you need one.

Calories on the chicken are too high if you're not eating the skin, rotisserie chicken without the skin is about 57 calories per ounce so 171 (3oz) or 228 (4oz) calories. if eating with the skin it's about 73 calories per ounce so 219 (3oz) or 292 (4oz).

Some of your measurements didn't translate directly to what spark has (i.e. sunflower seeds could be measured in cups, grams, etc, but not tsps) so I had to put some estimates and guesses in, but I came up with an average of about 670 calories for what you've laid out there.
Here are the numbers I used:
62cal 1 small apple 72cal 1/4 avocado 11cal 3 strawberries 80cal 1 piece string cheese 20cal 1/2 tsp sunflower seeds 92cal 5-7 pieces walnuts 40cal 5-7 slices of canned beets 300cal 3-4 oz. rotisserie chicken breast meat

It consists of the following: 1 small apple 1/4 avocado 3 strawberries 1 piece string cheese 1/2 tsp sunflower seeds 5-7 pieces walnuts 5-7 slices of canned beets 3-4 oz. rotisserie chicken breast meat
