This morning I had a great breakfast under 200 calories.
After I ate it and felt satisfied I tracked the calories and nutrition stats and was surprised it was so low in calories. It was also low in protein (I probably will have an egg or some soy protein tomorrow morning.)
Part of the reason for the satisfaction was the VARIETY of items. Oatmeal, flax meal, soy milk, skim milk, coffee, stevia, dried cranberries and fresh cranberries. A bit of cinnamon added (the spice I eat quite often with breakfast) would have been a nice addition.
The rest of the day won't be quite so easy to plan for nutrition as we are going out for dinner with a friend. My main concern at the seafood restaurant is the sodium content since I really enjoy shrimp, crab and lobster. Something to ponder before I get there as I need to limit sodium intake due to a fluid retention problem.
I'm off on a great start and won't let a dinner out spoil that.
