Well I think I did pretty good yesterday. I did not track my calories and even though I could do it now, I reeeealy dont feel like it so Im not gonna. I feel like I most likely did not go over my calories though, there was nothing extravigant that I ate yesterday so I think I came out ok.
Breakfast: old fashioned oatmeal w/ 1 tbls brown sugar, 1 tbls smart balance margarine, a dash of cinnimon & 1 tbls raisins
Snack: sams club samples - 1 peice angel food cake, 1 peice herb encrusted tilapia, 1 peice chicken courdon blu.
(I did really good at sams club because they had cookies and chocolate and pizza and other really really good stuff and I passed right by it. I only tasted the stuff that I reeally wanted)
Snack: 1/2 banana (my son aiden wanted a banana after we got home from the store, I peeled it for him and he took one bite and said... Im done.... I told him that he was gonna eat at least half of it since he asked for it... I ate the other half even though I really wasent that hungry)
Lunch: Turkey on Thomas' everything bagel thin with 1/2 tbls light mayo & 1/2 tbls honey dijon mustard, lettuce & tomato......... 1/2 serving sun chips
Dinner: Broccoli, tomato pesto & bacon bit quiche..... asparagus & cheese sauce..... flatbread with tomato peso & mozzarella cheese
Snack: Chocolate cupcake & 1/2 cup 1% milk
(Ok turns out every snackcake in the snack cake isle has hydrogenated oil in them... WTF.... so I look in the deli section and they have snack cakes that have a sell by date for the end of this month (instead of the end of this year) and they dont have any in them.... they are 200 calories though so I couldent get any more low calorie snack cakes...... turns out it was totaly worth the extra calories. OMG this was the best chocolate cup cake ever!!! Much Much better than the crappy mrs freshlys snack cake I had a few days ago. If your keeping your calories in check most of the day a 200 calorie treat is not gonna kill you so I went ahead and spluged a bit. I was totaly satisified afterward and dident want to snack anymore the rest of the night.)

mmm Its been a good day for food. So tastey!
Breakfast: Fiber one caremel delight & milk (I accedently bought an extra gallon of milk at the store this past shopping trip so I have to get this milk drank... I just broke into the second gallon today and it goes bad on the 9th so I have to find ways to use it up.... so its cereal yet again... sigh) - 241 cal
Lunch: Large salad with lettuce, wishbone regular ranch dressing, bell peppers, tomato, bacon bits, & sliced almonds....... Broccoli salad made with raw broccoli, broccoli cole slaw, 2% cheddar cheese, raisins, bacon bits and light miracle whip... Just as good as what they sell in the deli or serve at the salad bar (although I forgot the red onions) for alot less calories.... I looooove broccoli salad!!! - 402 cal
Snack: string cheese
- 80 cal
Dinner: veggie roll ups with 1/2 cup garlic & olive oil couscous & steam fresh lightly sauced broccoli, cauliflower and carrot mix.... - 455 cal
I got the recipe off of a PBS cooking show but threw in some of my own variations. If I had to do it again I would have peeled the egg plant and diced the veggies and layered them in a casserole dish instead of rolling them up... Other than that it was an awesome recipe and very very good.... expecially mixed with the couscous. You should try it. Oh btw it turns out its much more econamical to buy a basil plant ($2.99) rather than buying the packs of "fresh" basil, that are all browning and wilted ($1.99). yuck.
Ing - egg plant (I used 1/2 but next time I will use a whole), zucchini 1 whole, Mozzarella cheese (I used 3 pecies for the 2 servings I made), roasted red peppers about 1/2 cup, Fire roasted tomatoes about 1/2 cup, grated parmesan cheese about 1 tbls, salt and pepper - sprinkle, fresh basil leaves about 6 leaves.
Slice egg plant & zucchini, brush with olive oil and roast at 400* for about 20 min..... again if I had to do this again I would have peeled egg plant and diced the veggies and roasted them in a single layer with the olive oil.
layer veggies, drained canned fire roasted tomatoes, roasted (Jarred) red peppers, salt & pepper to taste, & fresh mozzarella cheese. ..... roll up if doing the rolls & secure with kabob stick..... Otherwise layer together & broil for 3 min or untill cheese is melted.
Top with fresh basil and grated parmesan, I used one basil leaf per roll.... If you are doing the recipe with veggies chopped I would chop the basil so you can have a little with each bite. Yummm, it gives it a great taste and smell ssooooo good. Goes perfectly with garlic & olive oil couscous.
Snack: 2 wasa wheat crackers w/ 2 tbls white bean and corn salsa & 1/4 a sliced avocado.... I love avocado :-) - 192 cal
Snack: Just wanted to try a bite of this...... 1/4 mrs freshlys chocolate cup cake - 35 cal
Ok I also went to the grocery store and had a sample of pinapple and a small cube of swiss cheese... 35 cal (no pic)
Total for the day ~ 1440 - I almost went under my calories for the day... Im accounting that to the fact that I normaly have meat with dinner and tonight was a totaly meat free night. I made my calories though and had alot of yummy food today.
