We had dinner at 4:58 tonight – the husband had to leave for class at 5:30 and so we had to eat at 5! We went to my mother in laws and she made the most delicious ratatouille with cheese, almonds and olives.
Here’s a link to the inspiration recipe.
She used much less oil, traded the feta for a sheep’s milk cheese, toasted slivered almonds instead of whole ones, used black olives instead of green, and added sun-dried tomatoes = the secret ingredient that made it fabulous!
There was 1/4 cup of brown rice under my portion!
I also had a piece of the husband’s freshly baked bread (he’s working on new recipes, etc.) with a tsp of Smart Balance
And a generous bite of Pecan Pie for dessert!
I am guessing dinner totaled around 500 kcal.
My lunch held me over well!!! I wasn’t hungry at all during class and didn’t really get hungry until about 3:45. Guess I need to just be more diligent about packing more filling foods (which is hard to do while being transportable) and having time to eat my whole lunch!!
Christy and I got in our 30 minutes of walking, which is always enjoyable 🙂
After class, I stopped at Bi-Lo on my way home (a big Super one in Rock Hill I’d been wanting to check out!) and traded my planned trail mix for a Think Organic bar. I LOVE these because they are so chewy and I take teeny-tiny bites and make it last a long time.
Since we had a super-early dinner, I had a snack around 8:00 – half a whole wheat pita that I found at Bi-Lo (I’ve never seen this brand, but it’s whole wheat with 140 kcal per pita) with a Light Swiss Laughing Cow cheese and some jam. This snack was so. good. for only about 115 kcal.
And hot tea!
Off to study!!
