Our last Food Comp lab was making some recipes that one member of each group modified. But some of them were still pretty high in calories and fat! Here are some of the dishes:
Breakfast Hashbrown Casserole
Taco Salad made with Doritos and Catalina Dressing
Vegetable Rice Casserole
A really good Splenda No Bake Cheesecake
And my group’s Coconut-Pecan Chess Pie! (Which was still like 500 calories a slice!)
Knowing that the recipes weren’t that healthy and that the savory dishes had onions in them, I brought along a turkey wrap with turkey, Laughing cow, pickles, romaine, and capers.
Here’s my plate -
I also had a tiny bite of the Rice Casserole but it was oniony and bland so I didn’t finish
Despite a fair number of calories, I wasn’t that full after this. The wrap was on the small side (the husband made it last night). I’ll probably have an early snack this afternoon.
I’ve got LOTS of studying to do for my Sports Nutrition final tomorrow and need to get serious about that NOW. If only I could turn the power off for a few hours again
