This is for yesterday, March 31.
For breakfast I had my version of a pb&j: Ezekiel toast, natural peanut butter, and no-sugar apple butter. I also had skim milk, thinly disguised as an iced latte, and a banana. I never get tired of this; in fact I eat this for breakfast nearly every day.
I was absolutely starving when we got back from our walk. I was in the mood for salad. I made a mixed green salad with raspberry poppyseed dressing, homemade whole wheat croutons, and grilled chicken. It was as pretty as it was delicious.
I had some writing and paperwork to do in the afternoon, as well as blogging, of course. It was my daughter's night at her dad's so I just threw together a dinner of leftovers. I had whole wheat spaghetti, homemade marinara sauce, lean ground beef, and mushrooms, topped with freshly grated Romano cheese.
After dinner I was feeling restless so I went for a short walk with the dog. We just walked around the neighborhood and went for 2 km at a moderate pace.
I've had some issues with appetite lately, which has made it hard for me to get all of my calories and protein in during a given day. So each day, I check my intake and if needed I make a protein shake with skim milk, fresh fruit and a natural protein powder with no artificial sweeteners.
All in all, this day worked out to
165 g carbs
55 g fat
111 g protein
Everything was very much on target.
Have a great day!
