Tracy's All Day Lunch
I was leaving for a 11 hour work day this morning with all of my day's food already prepped and packaged, so I clicked a few quick pictures of how and what I eat.
The top picture was everything sealed and ready to go, and then I took the lids off to show the contents. The bottom picture shows, from top left;
thermos of Peet's coffee (2 tsp. cream) 40 cal.
spinach w/tuna and dressing 300 cal.
tomatoes (4), for spinach and tuna salad, 80 cal.
veg stew w/black beans (1c., 140 cal.), & chicken (4oz, 200 cal.) divided into 2 containers
yogurt (3/4c. full fat banana 150 cal, 3/4c. nonfat 90 cal) 240 cal.
tbl. fiber (for yogurt) 20 cal.
3 stalks celery, 1 carrot 45 cal.
1 tbl PNB, 2 tbl. raisins 170 cal.
Total calories 1235
Add 60 cal. for morning cream and 100 cal. for 3 "nips" candies, total 1395.
A little low, but the night before I ate 1 pint of goats milk ice cream (700 cal) and jelly beans (300 cal.) at 6:30. In additon to eating a ton of stinkin fruit for the past 4 days, the figs and grapes have been out of control, in a good way, but still too much. Today was a NO FRUIT DAY!
Biggest lesson I seem to have to re-learn over and over....if you buy it, you'll eat it...so don't buy it! Tomorrow is a flea market day, I swear I'm only going to buy 1 lb. of grapes....I swear.
Life is good.
