Recording Mother's Day Lunch....and having Calorie SHOCK!!!

Sunday, May 12, 2013

I am going to state, right off the top, that I do NOOOOOOT regret what I ate yesterday. It is absolutely one of the my favorite dishes and I only eat it one or two times a year. But WOW!!!! I had no idea that the manicotti from Maggianos (we are talking about the spinich, chicken and alfredo ones here) had over 1000 calories. I guess I always assumed that it would be high, but I was shocked. I am thinking I will go ahead and have the spaghetti next time.

I did note that I came home feeling very full and slugglish and blah./.....and that I still felt that way about 4 hours later. Which is definately not the case with the good, clean, healthy food that we have been choosing lately. So......I guess the lesson is

Eat smart, clean and healthy with as few ingredients as possible 99 percent of the time. Then, enjoy that 1 percent. The next day, back to clean, back to TONS of water and moving moving moving to offset the damage.

Happy Mother's Day!!!

    Very good point! An occasional indulgence can be great, but like you I find some formerly favorite foods leave me feeling sluggish and blah. Happy Mother's Day to you!
