The foods I eat...a picture blog

Saturday, April 21, 2012

I've been taking photographic evidence again of the foods I eat. Here we go!

March 18/12:
Chicken, potatoes and broccoli

243 calories 26g carbs 2g fat 32g protein

March 15/12:
Salad with lettuce, balsamic vinegar and oil dressing, sprinkled with a nut/cranberry/almond sprinkle

113 calories 9g carbs 7g fat 3g protein

April 11/12:
Chicken tacos

for 2: 292 calories 19g carbs 12g fat 28g protein

April 11/12:
Breakfast egg!
Step 1:

Step 2:

Step 3:

Step 4:

Step 5:

My egg on bread may have a slight variation in the amounts or veggies included, but today's total: 325 calories including my milk in my coffee 26g carbs 11g fat 33g protein

April 12/12
pre-run oatmeal dinner (oats, ground flax & wheat bran with a sprinkle of Splenda brown sugar, bananas, blueberries and dried cranberries)

229 calories 64g carbs 3g fat 5g protein
....I find because protein and fat are slowly digested my tummy gets upset if I eat high-protein/fat food before a longer/intense run, so I need to keep my carbs high and proteins/fats low before a run.

April 13/12
morning chocolate banana nut oatmeal- YUM!

229 calories 54g carbs 10g fat 8g protein
So yummy, but doesn't sustain me for the long term- my breakfasts need to consist of more proteins and fats to keep me fuller, longer. This will be a perfect pre-run meal.

April 13/12
basa fillet (grilled on the George Forman grill), potato, carrots

192 calories 20g carbs 4g fat 20g protein

April 13/12
mid-afternoon snack (Greek yogurt flavoured with a couple drops of both vanilla and almond extract mixed with Splenda, topped with strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and sprinkled with almonds)

171 calories 18g carbs 5g fat 15g protein

April 15/12
Black bean soup my way

makes over a cup per serving and is very filling
182 calories 30g carbs 2g fat 12g protein

April 15/12
Taco salad- I like big salads!

368 calories 22g carbs 16g fat 40g protein

April 18/12
egg on toast (hidden underneath the egg, which takes up the whole plate! Yum!) and coffee

taco salad
daytime snacks:
snap peas and a banana

dinner (pre-workout):
salmon and stuffed pepper

Reminder to self: DON'T eat a dinner high in protein/fat before doing hills training/going for a longer run! Was sooo delicious though.

2nd dinner (post-workout):
black bean soup (as pictured above)

evening snacks:

Greek yogurt with berries and almonds:

....Just a glimpse into my world of food.

    I use Club House seasonings on my fish- it was Greek seasoning on my salmon and Smoked Applewood on my Basa.

    Can you come cook for me please?!?!

I don't really cook (Including things like putting vanilla extract, fruit & almond slices on yogurt). I eat most things plain or as they come pre-packaged, though I did recently learn how to make a Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie - woohoo!

Do most people on here eat like this? If so, I'm jealous - and I need to suck it up and learn how to do more of these things. I would love to have your Black Bean Soup recipe! And what is the flavoring you put on your basa and on your salmon??
