I was so bummed when I got to work because my camera’s battery was dead, and I didn’t have the re-charger with me. But then I remembered, my office has 6 digital cameras and I used one of those. LOOK HOW HUGE THE PICTURES ARE!! I’ve spent way too long trying to re-format them to no avail! So sorry they are so big!!
In pursuit of my goal weight, I am making more of a concerted effort to incorporate more fruits and veggies into my daily meal plans. Not only are they relatively low in calories, they are high in fiber and will keep me fuller longer and of course make my meals seem bigger!
For breakfast I had one of my banana chocolate chip muffins I made the other day, and cut up a banana and a huge orange. I am a slow eater anyway, but it took me about an hour to eat all this. (But I was eating/working at my desk, so that could be why!)
My breakfast was 326 calories, 4.5 grams of fat and 8.6 grams of fiber!
Now, for people who think it takes too much time to bring a lunch to work, I made this stir fry in about 6 minutes before I left for work this morning. Put whatever veggies you want in a skillet, spray with non stick spray, or add a tsp. or two of olive oil. Saute for about 4-5 minutes, stirring occassionally. Now, I like to add things leftover from the weeks cooking, so I added 1/2 of a serving of cooked whole wheat spaghetti and added 1/2 cup of black beans from my Mexican Fiesta last night.
Just transfer to a plastic container and you are ready to go! I had my stir fry sauce at work, so I just added it when I heated it up
This is the peanut sauce I am always raving about!
So my stir fry had: green beans, pea pods, garlic, onion, 2 carrots, 1/2 serving of whole wheat spaghetti, and black beans
My lunch came in at 385 calories, 5.8 grams of fat and 11 grams of fiber.
Check back tomorrow, I am thinking about making some kind of sesame crusted chicken breasts tonight! We’ll see how it goes!
Also, day 5 of my brother Charlie’s book tour!!! Check out The Pasta Queen
