OK, let's play with this. I'm starting to get depressed in the limitations of my diet so I'll just jump head first into calling this a healthy lifestyle change and go from there.
With my new outlook, let's see what my day might look like (instead of ice cream and mac & cheese all day):
Instead of Starbucks in the morning ($5 and 430 cals), I'll have an Ensure Protein drink (230 cals and maybe $1)
Oatmeal and greek yogurt will be my options for breakfast #2.
Maybe another protein drink or green smoothie for lunch. Might be able to handle some soups at work but they'd have to be brothy as to not make a mess.
Dinners will be just whatever I can figure out with the hubby...haven't really had time to test this yet. I've just been puree-ing things that we normally eat and so far it's OK. I'm so bread-centric that I have a hard time even thinking of non-bread related dinners.
Those little blue bell ice cream cups seem to be pretty safe for me. I get the ice cream without the temptation to scoop out a giant bowl for me. And they're only 170 cals.
