Back to basics. I need to start doing more food logs on the blog again. They do give me that extra boost to be disciplined.
I have to cut back some to take off those couple of stress pounds before they turn into a couple dozen! That means 1500 calories of food.
Breakfast was Kodiak cakes with protein. I cooked my apple topping in a pan, poured the pancake batter over it and stuck it under the broiler for a couple minutes. Then flipped over onto my plate:
Topped with some maple syrup and butter. I have my morning coffee with cashew milk. I switched from almond to cashew so that I can be more eco friendly. Calories: 435
Most days I have a morning snack, but I didn’t need one today for some reason. Probably because I didn’t exercise in the morning. It was really cold today and I wanted something hot for lunch. We had a banana that really needed to be used up, so I mashed it, cooked it with some oat bran, whisked in egg whites and topped with almond butter:
It’s topped with this:
Have you tried it? It’s pretty tasty. Normally we don’t buy sweetened nut butter, but I wanted to try it. It’s very good, although it’s not really no-stir. It doesn’t separate as much as natural nut butter, but it still needed stirring. Lunch calories: 355
Of course it’s a latte! Drizzled on top with some honey. Calories: 150
I had a solo dinner tonight, so it wasn’t vegetarian. I keep some of these in the freezer:
Super easy. Just toss in the toaster oven for 30 minutes and it’s done.
Steamed veggies with a bit of butter on top. Calories: 400
I have my evening snack planned out for later. Cafe au lait and Yorks:
I usually have my snack around 8 or 8:30. Calories: 150
That brings the total to 1490. Give or take rounding. Close enough. This was a good mix of food, although the breakfast for lunch was unusual. I did about 40 minutes of walking today.
It always feels good to get back to basics. I wasn’t going totally overboard or anything, but it could head that way pretty easily.
Have a great weekend!
