It’s time for another What I Ate Wednesday (WIAW) post, and this is what I ate on rainy, gloomy Tuesday. Before the eats, I have to ask… does anyone else feel English when they wear tweed? If it wasn’t so rainy and gloomy, I might have busted out a “Top of the Mornin!’” or “Cheerio!” to my colleagues.
First breakfast = rice cake. Second breakfast = three veggie frittatas (220 total + 35 rice cake)
Lunch = Soup. Soup was perfect for the gloomy, rainy day. I planned for salad, but I didn’t have time to prep it Monday night. (Speaking of salad, check out yesterday’s salad ideas.) FYI, I don’t recommend this soup. (240 calories)
Snack = cottage cheese (90 calories) and an apple (100 calories)
Dinner = Chicken Tagine. I love all the spices, and since my parents are in town, I wanted to make it for them.
It’s one of my favorite meals, and I served it over quinoa.
I may have also had the last wee bit of frosted gingerbread and a Lindtt chocolate for dessert. (Not Pictured)
This all came to a total of approximately 1370 calories. Yup, I’m counting again. As you all know, I count as a guide, not as a huge restriction. Hopefully it will help me get re-acquainted with non-holiday portion sizes. Before you go, be sure to check out the other great meals and snacks at Peas & Crayons!
