I haven't been keeping up with this - had some less than spectacular days diet wise during my illness, but regardless - here's today:

1/4C oatmeal (was supposed to be half, but I didn't much enjoy my attempt at PB&Banana oatmeal, so I only ate half of it)

Some l/f pretzels, baked Doritos, a donut, and a bowl of cherries - off to a concert shortly so will have a piece of protein cheesecake (very yummy, by the way) and then will try not to eat too terribly at the show

I do like bananas, bananabrain. They are the best thing I can go for when I really want something sweet. I am trying to cut way down on sugar and salt and fat. I am going natural. Today I had a fruit and yogurt parfait made with some berries, fat free yogurt with a little vanilla extract, and some kashi on top for a crunch for breakfast. Right now I am having some chai tea. I am going to attempt some more California roll type things for lunch (less wasabi this time). I am not sure about dinner yet.

For breakfast, I had a Greek yogurt with 2/3 of a nectarine (the other third had gone bad) and a small red plum.

Gah! Yesterday, we went out for the WC final and I had 3 glasses of wine and 2/3 of a veggie pizza... Well, I had been to the gym before that but I'm not sure it made up for it!

For dinner I ended up making some tofu spicy chicken strips with ranch dip. Not to bad with a big glass of chocolate silk

yeah I did and it was kinda sour but I am trying to stay away from sugar, salt, and fat for diet reasons so I am getting used to the natural taste of things. It's not so bad.

Today I had some Kashi for breakfast with bananas on top and a glass of chocolate silk, I made some "stoplight chowder" (what I call it at least) for lunch, and I am thinking of making some veggie stirfry for dinner, maybe with a little tofu.

A lot I think. Breakfast: A bowl of instant apple-cinnamon oatmeal made with 1/3 cup milk and 1/3 cup water. Plus half a quik-fix bean burrito with a high fiber tortilla and refried beans. Lunch: About ten tiny little chocolate chip cookies (they were like ten cal each) that I just got from Trator Joe's and a bowl of carrot-ginger soup. Plus some crackers, a bit of french bread, and some taste-test PB and J's (see my other post, hehe). And a bunch of vanilla soymilk to wash it all down. Snack: Taco (pretty small I guess, the shell was like 50 cal) with ground beef, rissoto rice, refried beans, lettuce and salsa. Plus another big sip or two of vanilla soymilk.

that sure was a fun post BB. How many PBJ's did you eat total?

Today I had toast with jam and chocolate silk for breakfast, I am trying to make some toquitos for lunch if I can manage to make a good tortilla, and for dinner I am making some bruschetta and not sure what else.

Usually I just had a 1/4 of a sandwhich (half a peice of bread folded over the filling) for my tests. But I definatly had at least a few entire peanut-butter sandwhiches total.
