Another week of food journaling, and I finally have a few new things to share. I made a conscious effort to break out of my routine a bit, so hopefully it’ll keep things interesting.
In case you’re new to the blog I don’t normally do a lot of “calorie counting” posts, but food journaling is part of the Get Well Challenge, and since I’m adding it up anyway, I thought it would be fun to share!
Instead of my usual smoothie, I whipped up this super easy breakfast:
6oz plain chobani, 1/2 scoop about time whey protein powder, 1/2 cup blueberries, 1 piece of Ezekiel cinnamon raisin bread. I also had an apple later in the morning.
Total: 380 calories, 35g protein, 10g fiber
Trader Joe’s Black Bean and Corn enchilada (these are vegan and gluten free!) plus an unpictured string cheese.
Total: 310 calories, 14g protein, 4g fiber
Sabra hummus + pretzels Total: 260 calories, 3g fiber 6g protein. No picture, sadly. But these things are delicious.
As soon as I got home from work, I sprinted out the door for a quick run. When I got back I munched on a few cherry tomatoes while I waited for Brett and Lindsay to come over, so we could cook up a feast.
I skipped a tortilla and loaded my plate up with peppers, onion, and black beans. I topped off with some salsa, and eaten with
a few several handfuls of chips on the side. After dinner, Lindsay and I took a walk around Carytown and inevitably ended at Sweet Frog. I went with a cake batter + cookies and cream swirl, topped with fruit and granola. It’s truly the best.
Total: 620 calories, 16g protein, 14g fiber.
I ran a 3 mile loop near by, and stopped at the gym during the halfway point to do some upper body. Nothing too exciting, but I managed to squeeze some physical activity in the day! I think I probably burned around 350 calories.
Total calories for the day: 1,580 calories, 72g protein. 32g fiber. Who says vegetarians don’t get enough protein?
