Today was going to be the worst day ever because…it was supposed to be an 820 calorie day. I don’t know why Greenlite Meals is doing this to me, but don’t worry, I didn’t let it happen.
First of all, the day started with this Blueberry Protein “Muffin”. It’s basically just a muffin top, except not, because it’s flat like a cookie. And because, ya know, there was no muffin bottom to begin with.
So you can tell how big it isn’t, this is a 1/4 C measuring cup. The “muffin” was okay, but it definitely had a protein shake aftertaste. The texture was also a bit off since the only flour used was oat flour. I wouldn’t have minded if this were today’s snack, but it was meant to be my breakfast.
I also had a Qrunch Maple Toastable for another 120 calories, with a little jam for an additional 25.
Afterwards, I actually measured my almond milk to see exactly how much I’d been drinking. I discovered I’d been using a 3oz glass all week, not 8! So I gave myself one 8oz glass and didn’t count the calories.
1/8 C shreds, 35
2 crackers, 80
For my snack, I had a Carrot Coconut Scramble. This was simply shredded carrots and coconut with agave. I’m not sure scramble is the right name for it, but it was good. Didn’t exactly satisfy my sweet tooth, but it was very filling. For an hour or two.
I actually thought I hated tempeh, but this was very tender and flaky and sort of…chickenish, a little. It was very spicy, but luckily not enough to give me hiccups. That’s the worst. I was going to have this with tortilla chips, but I only ate a couple because they were stale 🙁
1/4 Daiya shreds, 90
Total calories for the day: 1170 plus whatever for the two stale chips and the cookie.
I would like to be eating a donut for National Donut Day, but I heard someone nearly choked to death on one at the JFK airport this morning, so…I guess I’ll play it safe and go without.
