Food of the Day (pictured)

384 posts in this topic

New thread time!   Lets to food of the day - picture style. 

 

I suggest just posting 1 meal/picture a day (if you are really into this).   It doesn't have to be "that day"... the one I'm posting today I ate like 4 days ago.

We have lots of threads just listing what we ate -  lets try and keep this a visual of what we ate too since people like to see what the amounts look like

 

 

What to do with left over crockpot plain chicken and tomatoes & cucumbers that are getting old in the fridge.....  you make impromptu chicken salad:

 

post-31510-0-53382900-1441471513_thumb.j

 

4 oz of left over chicken breast

1/2 half large cucumber (left over from my last creation with the other half)

3 cherry tomatoes

1/8 c shredded carrots

2 Tbs (approx) Walden Farms no-calorie Chipolte Ranch Dressing

 

210 cal   37 protein   7 carb   2 fiber   4 fat

 

This was like 1 & 1/4 cup food...maybe 1 & 1/2, I didn't measure it once all together.   I took an hour to eat it all.   Yes I know I did two bad things here:  ate more then a cup,  took longer then 30 min to eat.   But this falls under the "salad" category, there is not much bulk to the cucumber/veggies.  It was a lot though and while I should have ate most of it, waited, and had more snack -  I chose just to take a long time to eat it all instead.   This is what I was eating for lunch, so I just got it all down when I could.

 

Edit:  begging Pug was not eaten

Great idea, Jolls! This will be fun. I made this recipe last weekend and it was a big hit. In all honesty, I don't cook very often, and we go out yo eat a lot. But when I do, it's yummy!

This was chicken breasts, butterflied and stuffed with apple slices and goat Brie cheese. Baked in the oven and then topped with English white cheddar and broiled til melted. Unbelievably good. I made the family toasted pine nut cous cous and I ate peppers sautéed in garlic and Pam. (For reference, this was on a salad plate, not dinner plate)

That looks to be maybe 1/3 of a breast....  can you give a guesstimate?

It was 3 ounces. I weigh all of my protein still. The chicken was probably a little closer to 2.5 as some weight needs to be attributed to cheese/Apple stuffing. I can't eat more that 2.5-3 ounces of protein still. Lately, even less. But this was delicious.

I forgot to take a pic, but made the yummiest dinner last night! Mussels steamed in chicken broth and garlic with sliced spinach and mozzarella sausage. Beyond!

We were all fighting for the last mussel :) my kids can't get enough.

next month is a three-paycheck month.  I swear I'm getting a new cell phone and learning how to use it just so I can post pictures here and on what I'm wearing today.

I was excited so I didn't take a pic before I mixed it all up :D  But I'll try to remember tomorrow night with leftovers.  I made chicken fajitas - chicken breast, green pepper, onions, salsa, and a sprinkle of cheese and sour cream.  I don't really even miss the tortillas!

That looks gorgeous!!

I had an amazing piece of swordfish out tonight, with sautéed spinach. I am guesstimating about 3.5 oz. it was ridiculously good, even though I'm not supposed to eat swordfish now :0
