Food & Exercise Log 07.29.12

Breakfast ( I brought the ingredients with me to church ) 😀 : 550 – 600 calories

  • oatmeal packet (flavor: original)
  • cocoa powder
  • cinnamon
  • chia seeds
  • 3 dried prunes
  • 1/2 cup shelled peanuts

So I added hot water (used for people getting tea before the service starts), unshelled my peanuts,  tore up the prunes, and tossed the seeds, cinnamon, and powder from my plastic baggie and into the bowl of oatmeal.  Yum, chocolate oatmeal.

Second part of breakfast –

  • avocado
  • cinnamon raisin bagel thins
  • strawberries
  • grapes

Brought all of the aforementioned except for the cinnamon raisin bagel thins.  Those and other things were/are provided by the church. Toasted those, used a spoon to get some of the fruit out of the avocado, mushed it, and spread it onto the thins.  Used the same spoon, sliced the strawberries and placed them atop the avocado + thins.  Had grapes on the side. Very good.  Afterwards, I placed my remaining strawberry and avocado in the church fridge/freezer.

When I got home I had 1st Lunch: 380 calories

  • cinnamon raisin bagel thins
  • avocado
  • cilantro
  • tomato
  • green pepper
  • 4.5 cups air-popped popcorn
  • chamomile tea

I brought an extra bagel thin home with me.  I decided this time I’d add a vegetable&herb to the mix.  Mushed the remaining avocado, sliced the green pepper, sliced some tomato, and cleaned the cilantro.  Placed this all atop the bagel thins, after toasting of course.  Then I put popcorn kernels in a brown paper bag and popped them in the microwave.  Next I boiled water, poured the boiling water in my tea pot, and added the chamomile baggies.  Good lunch #1.

Snack: 116 calories

  • large red delicious apple

2nd Lunch recently occured: 350 calories

  • 1 oz. Angel Hair pasta
  • zucchini ribbons
  • 1/2 cup Rinaldi Hearty Tomato & Basil Sauce
  • 1 tbsp. milled flax
  • 1 spring onion
  • green pepper
  • garlic powder
  • 1/2 ear of corn

Heated, chopped, and mixed everything, except the corn.  The corn was on the side. Oh and water of course.  Now..I am stuffed.

Supper after I worked out for an hour while watching the Olympics (#LochteNation) : 350 calories + soup 

  • 1/2 cup quinoa
  • 1/4 cup shelled peanuts
  • 2 – 1/2 corn ears
  • amazing lentil bean soup!
  • 1 tbsp. flax
  • many many spices

I warmed my quinoa, unshelled my peanuts and combined the two.  I added several spices to the quinoa – turmeric, curry, cayenne pepper, chili powder, chives, garlic powder, black pepper, ginger, and something else.  I added these same spices to my amazing lentil bean soup, plus 1 tbsp. of milled flax and less than 1/4 tsp. of sea salt.  So tasty.  And the corn was like a sweet treat.
