Husband met me after work to go running in the fancy old Charlotte neighborhoods. Of course it decides to POUR down rain for the first time in months!! We had a great run, and boy was it good post-work stress relief!
I drove home soaking wet, took a warm shower, and had a filling dinner!! But my evening is sure shorter than normal 🙁
For dinner I decided to have the Kashi Black Bean Mango frozen entree that has been in our freezer for OVER A YEAR!! It’s been through a move, power outages, and more, so I thought there was a good chance it was bad. I did have to scrape off a layer an inch thick of ice crystals, but the overall entree was OK – maybe because it had been upsidedown?
So after heating it up and picking out all 1,000 of the onions, I took one look at it and though “That is NOT worth 340 calories.” Then I gave it a taste – YUM!!!! The sauce was great. I don’t remember eating any mangoes, but I guess they were in the sauce because it was sweet and yummy. Lots of cilantro too. I bulked it up big time with spaghetti squash and zucchini and it ended up being a delicious filling dinner. I don’t think I’ll be getting another one of these, because I don’t think it was worth 340 calories. You’d think they could add some more vegetables or something!? But I’d recommend it to mix with other low-cal things.
Mixed together with squash and zucchini (remember, we have HUGE Pottery Barn bowls…)
Total dinner calories: 441 (after some Kashi cracker nibbling when packing lunches and pear and cranberry bites)
Yogurt with cranberry sauce and half a bag of pretzel snaps.
Then the other half………
Then about 3 of these:
Please let this trail mix be gone soon!!!!!
Total Wednesday calories: 1634
-523 thru run and walk (amazing I slept in today and “missed” my workout!)
= net of 1110.
Might have a snack, not sure.
Wait till you see my lunch tomorrow!! Salmon salad with veggies….
Edited to add that I just had 4 saltines with some peanut butter in two little “sandwiches.” It brought my net to 1226 EXACTLY!
