Sorry to everyone for not doing a blogpost yesterday, I was out of town all day, which is never good when you are trying to lose weight. I ran into some very big difficulties while out, but I made the best of my situation. So my food diary will consist of only food I ate out, because we were literally in the car for 12 hours :( very long day.
FOOD DIARY APRIL 18 2010
Breakfast: coffee and one breakfast burrito from mcdonalds (the coffee was home brewed)
Lunch: they hit up Jack in the box, so I had the southwest pita small size with fries and diet coke,(it is so helpful to have the fat calories listed next to the items, makes my choice easier)
Dinner: blackforest ham foot long sandwich from subway, loaded with veggies and lite mayo and mustard.
That was my food for my 12 hour trip. needless to say I am going to be working my tush off this week to try and lose some of the jack in the box I had.
Here is a great dinner recipe:
TRIPLE PEPPER FETTUCINE
What you need:
1 medium green bell pepper, cut into strips
1 medium red bell pepper, cut into strips
1 medium yellow bell pepper, cut into strips
2 cloves garlic
2 tablespoons butter
1 cup nonfat chicken broth
1/2 cup spicy brown mustard
12 ounces fettuccine, cooked and drained
Cook peppers and garlic in margarine or butter over medium heat until tender-crisp, about 2 minutes; remove from skillet. Blend chicken broth and mustard in same skillet. Simmer uncovered, stirring occasionally for 3 to 4 minutes or until slightly thickened. Stir in peppers until heated through. Serve over hot fettuccine
