(The lighting in EarthFare was horrible – we are much better looking in natural light!!)
Dinner with Christy was so fun!!We have LOTS to talk about. Her favorite healthy food is a wonderful mixture of oats, blueberries, cottage cheese, cinnamon, peanut butter and splenda (I think that’s it!) and her favorite dessert: chocolate cake! We have two classes together this spring – cool!
Of course I got a salad for dinner at this amazing salad bar Here’s the “goodies” side – the other side is all veggies and some fruit. Note the chopped salmon – it was the BEST salmon I’ve ever had taste-wise!
On my salad:
- Mixed greens
- Bell pepper
- A strawberry
- A shrimp
- 2 cherry tomatoes
- 3 baby carrots
- 1 falafel ball (SO good!)
- 1 tbsp broccoli salad
- 1 tbsp chicken salad
- 1 piece peanut tofu
- 1/4 cup chopped salmon
- 1 giant caper
I think that’s it???!! Do I have a good memory or what!?
Check out this super cute, giant caper!!! It tasted just like the way a permanent marker smells 😉
Hot tea to drink:
All together for ~380 kcal. Whoa. Even with the salads, it wasn’t many calories. Now I wish I’d gotten more of the delicious salmon!! (I guessed 2 oz).
I spotted my favorite pita chips, which they are ALWAYS out of and had to open them on the spot because I wanted Christy to taste them – so I had about 3/4 of an oz (another 2 chips when I got home!) But these chips are only 66 kcal per oz, so it was only about 45 kcal. more.
Total calories: ~420. I’ve got about 100 left to meet NET and am a little hungry so I think I’m going to go have a small glass of milk.
Here’s what I had for snack at 3:30 – a little mix of things! Some flavored almonds (they were gross and a little oniony), a mini box of raisins, and 1/2 a Kashi pumpkin bar I had in my cabinet:
This snack didn’t really fill me up like I’d hoped, although it was fun to eat. I was getting pretty hungry when I got home at 6 and had 3 kashi crackers to tide me when I rushed back out the door to go to dinner. No photo!
Total Thursday calories: ~1756 (with my best dinner estimate and include a yet-to-be-consumed glass of milk)

Tomorrow is my LAST DAY OF WORK!!!!!!!!!!! We’re going out to sushi for lunch. Not sure what I’ll get yet, but I’m thinking miso soup and spicy tuna roll and perhaps some seaweed salad b/c I love that stuff. Spinning class first thing in the AM!
