Another beautiful picnic in the park with my husband! He packed a wonderful array of things today:
- Tuna salad with celery, peppers, jalopenos, tomatoes and spices (and smidge of mayo and walnut oil)
- Fresh bananas, apples, and peach
- Cherry tomatoes with basil leaves and hummus
- Yogurt for me; cottage cheese for him
- Millet chips (more info below!)
Tuna salad with pita chip:
1 cup apples, peaches, banana:
These chips are amazing. Sami’s Bakery Millet and Flax chips. Only 66 calories for 1 oz (about half the amount of other chips/crackers). They’re made with millet and brown rice flour. And 8 grams of fiber per oz! I had 2 oz, so that’s a LOT of fiber! I found the at Earth Fare and Talley’s, so I bet any healthy grocery store would have them.
Lunch: ~ 450 calories.
I ignored my 10:30 hunger with a piece of gum until 11:15. Then I had 3 almonds and a dried apricot. Too small to bother photographing, but I’m blogging for the record 🙂
Snack: ~ 35 calories : )
Tonight the first of two college frat brothers is arriving to spend a few days with us before homecoming this weekend. Husband is home preparing roasted chicken pieces with potatoes, parsnips, carrots, zucchini and squash. And making homemade biscuits! I think we’re having wine with dinner too. Biscuits should be about 150 calories, chicken I’ll stick to white breast meat, and veggies – I will eat abundantly (although I’m not sure about the chicken fat that will drip on them and how that will affect their caloric amounts). I”ll also have a glass of wine 🙂 Should be around 500-600 calories total, I’m hoping.
