1) Hers: 1 serving ground turkey (about 110g) + 1/2 cup fire roasted tomatoes with green chiles (from a can) = 175 cals. Best addition? Nutritional Yeast. It gave it an almost...cheesy...taste.
His: 3 servings of turkey (though this made one dinner and 2 lunch) with a taco spice seasoning mix. Too much sodium for "hers".
The bowl at 12 o'clock has some steamed veggies (frozen, microwaved in the package. Not cheap, but easy)
The bowl at 3 o'clock has the turkey/salsa mixture
At 6-9 o'clock are 4 pieces of romaine lined with cheese.
I used some sort of non-fat/non-dairy cheese nonsense I had found in the supermarket. It worked for this purpose but I don't know what else it's good for. Either way, if you're using American Cheese slices, line each lettuce wrap with cheese, spoon on a small layer of steamed veggies then top with the turkey salsa mixture.
Finish it off with a little sprinkle of non-fat Greek Yogurt (I think it tastes BETTER than sour cream and Boyfriend can't tell the difference)
I had 4 of these at about 100 cals each. It was the most delicious, satisfying, filling 400 calorie meal ever!
His included 3 tortilla wraps, real cheddar (I should have sprung for this), the turkey mixture and lots of greek yogurt on top. I think his added on another 450 cals!
Honestly, I tasted his and liked mine better!
This is less than 2 servings of egg beaters (50 cals?) + 1/2 cup or so of the roasted tomatoes (25 cals). It's actually a LOT of food! Seasoned with S+P of course.
And....because we had a lot of romaine left, I decided to make this a wrap too! Again I lined the lettuce wraps with cheese. This was only eh... but kind of a fun way to eat scrambled eggs!
I think I sprinkled a few oats in there too.
I microwaved the pumpkin first though so it became like a delicious warm pumpkin mash and the grapham crackers gave it a delicious honey sweetness. This was UBER Delicious.
It's a 90 calorie brownie about the size of a deck of cards. It's not a volume eat but it's packed full of fiber and it tastes as good as any regular brownie out there.
Definitely a worthwhile purchase.
It's been an interesting week especially because on Wednesday, my fellowship applications went out. I applied mostly in New York, but get this: I wont be starting fellowship for another 1.75 years and yet, I have to apply NOW! Yikes! To celebrate, Boyfriend took me out to one of my favorite wine bars, which is actually a South African place. They serve draft wines and have really unique food. We shared an Elk Slider (Elk is VERY tasty), a portabella mushroom and asparagus dish with cheese, a chicken liver bruschetta (also very tasty!) and South African Chicken Wings (not special AT ALL). Everything was very yummy, including the zinfandel I had =)
Coming up: Another batch of apple pie, another go at baba ganoush and kale chips all combine into a surprisingly tasty lunch. Also on the menu: experimenting with Acorn Squash!
