I got back to counting calories yesterday. The only thing that may not be accurate is the meat sauce I had with dinner; it was leftover homemade sauce, and I didn't calculate anything when I made it. It was basically canned tomatoes, onions, seasonings and extra lean ground beef and I had 1/2 cup. I looked up values from a similar recipe and used those, but I could be off by 50 calories one way or the other. Everything else was measured, weighed, and calculated.
Breakfast: black coffee, pumpkin/ricotta "cereal" (posted yesterday)
Coffee w/ 2Tbsp half and half midmorning
Lunch: cup of leftover homemade cabbage soup, serving of soy crisps, 2 Tbsp blue cheese dressing as a dip
Snack: grain free "muffin" in a mug, made from almond butter, almond milk, Egg Beaters, and coconut flour
Dinner: cauliflower pizza crust cut into strips and dipped in 1/2 cup of leftover homemade tomato/meat sauce
Evening: plain tea
61 g carbs (19%)
85 g protein (26%)
79 g fat (55%)
My calories were slightly higher than I wanted yesterday but my ratios are perfect. I had a goal of getting more veggies in yesterday and I definitely accomplished that. I had veggies for every meal, and a good variety too. I have some cabbage soup left and will have it again today for lunch. I'm about to go make my pumpkin "cereal" for breakfast, and need to plan a yummy fall dinner. Maybe I'll make some baked salmon! I am in the mood for some simmered greens but the kale at the Farmer's Market looked sad. I might make a store trip and pick some up to make with dinner.
Enjoy your weekend!
