May 17th Menu

Breakfast: 8 am
1 packet Quaker True Delights Wild Blueberry Muffin Oatmeal
This is the only packaged oatmeal I will eat because a) it's the one that tastes the best and b) it's only 150 calories and extremely filling!

Nutritional Info:

Snack - 11 am
Fresh watermelon and 2 tsp. of sunflower seeds.

Nutritional info: (Basically, I'm just counting the sunflower seeds since watermelon is said to be a "negative calorie" food.)
100 cal., 7g fat, 1g sat. fat, 0mg chl., 65mg sodium, 5g carbs, 1.5g fiber, 1.5g sugar, 3g protein

Lunch - 1 pm
1 slice of Schwan's pepperoni pizza and a bag of Harvest Chips. More watermelon. (I forgot to keep the stuff for the nutritional info on these things. Oops!)

Snack - 3:30
Finished off the package of watermelon and had 2 fresh baked cookies from my etsy store.

Dinner - 7 pm
Texas Roadhouse Salmon with fresh vegetables and green beans. I also had 2 rolls with their cinnamon butter. (I can't help myself when it comes to bread! I refuse to give it up. So, I try to compensate in other areas.)
(I have no idea what the nutritional info is on this item. Sorry!)

Tip: When I eat out, I divide my plate in half and resolve to take the rest of it home in a doggy bag. We're told to eat slow. We should take 15 minutes to eat every meal so we can allow the food to reach our stomach and begin to feel full so we will eat less. I can't eat slow, even if I try to make a conscious effort to really slow down. It's like trying to talk without using my hands.
PLUS, with restaurant portions getting to be elephant feeding frenzy size, it's no wonder we're hating ourselves when we walk away from the dinner table!
So, I cut my food in half and ask for a to-go box so I can enjoy my meal again at home.
