Me vs. Chinese Buffet ---- Photo Food Blog - Friday May 20th

Thursday, May 20, 2010

Today I ate pretty light durring the first part of the day and its a good thing because I ended up going out to eat tonight at a chinese buffet / hibatchi grill...... Buffets are tricky because its very easy to over eat and eat the wrong foods... I found myself wanting to get up and eat more even though I knew I was full and I know I would have eating alot more bad stuff and alot more food in general if I was not taking the pictures. Knowing that I would have to come home and fess up kept me alot more on track.... So thanks guys for reading my blog and keeping me on the stright and narrow...

and now for todays damage ..... Que dramatic mucic .... lol!

Breakfast: Egg white omelet w/ 1/4 diced potato, 1/4 cup chopped onion, 1 small tomato, 1/4 cup 2% cheddar cheese - 195 cal

Lunch: 1/2 can light progresso meat ball soup, 1/2 cup plain couscous - 168 cal

Snack: 1 banana.... 1 tbls skippy natural peanut butter - 225 cal

Dinner: 859 ... a bit high but not bad... I think I would have done really well with my calories for the day even if I had not of eaten so light at breakfast and lunch.

1 plate hibatchi noodles and veggies... cooked with no butter - 1/2 cup noodles, mushrooms, scallions, baby corn, shrimp, garlic & teriyaki sauce

5 peices sushi w/ pickled ginger

1/4 cup wonton soup w/ 1 wonton

1 dumpling, 1 fried cheese wonton (my faves), tsp duck sauce

3 peices sushi, 1 fried cheese wonton

Fruit & 3 tsp ice cream

I know it looks like alot of food huh.... lol.... but I go to this buffet at least once a month and I have to say this was the best I have ever done and Im quite proud of myself. I would like for someone to try and tell me that you cant go to a chinese buffet and still stick to a healthy eating plan... Its not a thing you should do every day of course, Im sure my sodium was off the charts but it is something you can indulge in occasionaly and still lose weight.

Total Calories for the day ~ 1448 .... thats almost under my calories for the day.

I hope everyone had an awesome day and I would like to say that I am really enjoying the food blogs that have been popping up since I started mine. Its so great that we can all inspire each other to eat better and make healthier habits.
