So I have been pretty diligent about my caloric intake these last two weeks. I try not to go over 1650. I must confess I haven't been anywhere near the gym (which I partially blame on the BF. I believe he threw away both of my IPODs in the move process) But I've been kick ass about what I put in my mouth. Everyday I track my food on sparkpeople.com and realize that I don't eat nearly enough fruits and vegetables. Mainly veggies. It's not that I hate them. It's just that I kinda "forget" to incorporate them into my meals.
So I introduce to you the big ass lunch salad. It helps, and keeps me full longer than anything else I would have chose to eat instead, and I filled it with all my faves: grilled chicken breast, tomatoes, cucumbers, Saladena's Mediterranean Feta Cheese Crumbles and Kraft Fat Free Italian dressing.. I am known for demolishing a healthy salad with loads of dressing, but I nabbed the kraft light packets from work last night and 4 packets is still ONLY 60 calories!!! How hot is that. I paired it with a 1/4 c. of blueberries and a Quaker True Delight Toasted Coconut Banana Macadamia Nut Bar (Gotta try them they are to DIE for) and with all that being said my lunch was only 454 calories.
