Dinner was Broiled salmon and a big tossed salad.
Ditto, if you guys think of anything, LET ME KNOW. Implanon has killed my appetite completely, and it is really hard to just sit and munch on things. Hearts and Gizzards is usually my go-to, but they've been missing from the store lately and I don't really have any other snacky-type foods to lay back on.
I tried cutting up cheap roasts and making beef jerky out of it, but then I got tired of jerky. I need something that IS NOT salty for once! Lol. Not salty, full of protein and fat, no carbs, high calorie...where does said food exist?
Lentils/beans/legumes! They're super cheap, super filling, super good for you, and high in protein.
Since next week I'm going to be exposed to lots of people for the first time in a while, many of whom will likely be ill, and smacked with a load of stress, I made a huge batch of Souperman soup: huge white onion, probably 1/4-1/2 of carrots, a whole head of garlic, a small hand of ginger (probably about 1/10th pound), cumin and cayenne, turkey stock, a couple tablespoons of orange pulp, lentils, and then served with homemade whole wheat fettuccine and topped with cheddar. Of course, since that was all so healthy I had to pair it with a blackberry-pineapple margarita, duh.
Sesame soy filet for dinner. And some veggie mix thing because I'm still sick and have no desire to do anything, much less cook, so finding a microwaveable vegetable thingy was awesome.
Can you do cashews/nuts?
A half cup of cashews + one banana is another 500 calories. I had major issues keeping down enough calories when pregnant too. You can slice up the banana and slowly pick away at those portions until they're down if that works. It also doesn't taste horrible if it comes back up (not like Lucky Charms... *shudders*)
Today I'm trying an experiment with chia seed. Apparently it's super healthy for you, has tons of omega 3s, is good for diabetics and people with high blood pressure, doesn't have a hard seed coat so you don't need to grind it, etc. etc. magical rainbows.
You might try and pick some up. It sort of gets gelatiny if you soak it, and is supposed to be really good if you add a teaspoon full to a glass of orange juice. It's got a decent amount of protein and calcium too.
This is the chocolate pudding recipe that's in the fridge right now. If it's good tasting it'll probably be my breakfast from now on.
-A batch of whole wheat olive oil orange muffins with rosemary bourbon maple pecans - completely with a hint of balsamic vinegar and buttermilk
-Another batch of the same muffins but with no pecans, double the orange and add double ginger. I literally squealed and danced in delight when I tasted one.
Uh, recipe. Plz.
I'm currently eating a Kroger Carbmaster caramel spice cake yogurt. 60 calories, 1.5g fat, 8g protein, and 4g carbs. So far it's the only low-carb yogurt I've been able to find, but it's AWESOME and delicious and comes in 456732 yummy flavors. It's also something like 35 cents a piece.
I also just got back from Dillon's (hence the Kroger yogurt) and bought 4 dozen organic cage-free eggs for 25 cents a dozen and fresh organic mushrooms for 19 cents a pound. I ****ing love Dillon's. Kale was $1.49 a bunch (didn't have any precut on sale for 10 cents a pound this time like they usually do ) which s more expensive than anywhere else, but it's also FRESH and crisp and not wilted, like it is everywhere else.
It's 3:30pm and I'm just now eating. I slept kind of late lol.
Anyway, kale salad including kale, pickles, chicken, carrots, mushrooms, avocado, cheese, and a basic vinaigrette I mixed up (vegetable oil, pickle juice, salt, pepper, garlic). Tasty!
I used to know that! I'm going to remember this next time I go to the store!
I did pretty good today, I think! (I always think and then I add it up and it's not so good). Probably not nutrition wise, but calorie/protein wise.
Eggo waffle with peanut butter
Turkey/chedder/ham sandwich on 12 grain bread with butter grilled
A mango and three oreos
A half slice of pizza, a half slice of fresh mozzarella/tomato pizza, and TWO pepperoni rolls.
This morning I had a potato & egg breakfast taco, for lunch I had some chicken soup, for dinner we are going to our favorite Mexican restaurant but I don't know what I'm going to get.
My meds are kind of making me loopy so my folks are bringing me back an enchilada plate
Dinner was bacon and eggs, and another smaller, less complex kale salad.
This morning I had an english muffin with peanut butter and a glass if water as well as coffee.
For dinner we had chicken breast breaded with bread crumbs and seasonings and baked in the oven... I split my chicken breast with Hannah and veggies (broccoli, cauliflower and carrots again)
Also, you need a crock pot, for serious!
I ate pizza and Oreos today and was still over 500 calories under. I give up
Bacon dipped in Nutella
Apples dipped in Nutella
Scrambled eggs with cheese and LOTS of pepper
More bacon with Nutella
English muffins with Nutella.....
I'm starting to notice a pattern here .___.
Has nobody eaten in two days?
I've been sick and not caring. I had like...4 pieces of leftover pizza from our party last night, and a ginormous bowl of ice cream lol
