This lunch had good intentions, but it turned out rather disappointing. I had a plantain that was on its last few days, so I decided to have that, but it wasn’t was I was craving.
Plantains are kind of a cross between a banana and a potato – the riper they get the more banana-y they get. Mine was quite banana and was starting to turn black, but I made “potato” chips anyways. Baked in a 450* oven for 12 minutes. About 150 kcal worth of plantain chips:
I also decided on a panini-style turkey and cheese sandwich with some fresh basil.
While it tasted good, it was gone in about 6 bites
Lastly, fresh strawberries with greek yogurt. This ended up being kind of bland so I hopped up and added a sprinkle of Organic Morning cereal, which did improve it.
From above, would you believe that this lunch was 575 kcal? Very different from my super-volume lunches with tons of variety that take me a long time to eat.
I think the clouds are making me want to eat more!! I need to find myself a distraction!
