Well, I got off to a rough start with my Greenlite Meals today because I forgot to grab my meal menu last night, so I ended up not eating breakfast until 11am. Then I didn’t have time to eat lunch in the afternoon, so I had the snack around 2:30pm, and ate the dinner and lunch together around 7pm. Nothing was thawed ahead of time. Oops! But I made it work. Also, after breakfast I decided to keep track of calories for anyone who cares.
This was actually a pretty good portion size. It was basically like a fruit soup, and it definitely needed the granola added to fill me up. One thing that threw me off is there were chia seeds in the granola, but they weren’t listed in the ingredients. I usually add chia seeds to my overnight oatmeal to help thicken it, because the chia seeds gel when they soak, so I wasn’t sure if I was supposed to add the oatmeal and let it sit or what. I just ate it 🙂
Calories: I had already tossed the package before I decided to count calories, but a similar breakfast in this meal plan has 230
About 30 minutes later I was hungry again, so I had my snack – this little fruit bowl. I pretty much only like frozen fruit in a smoothie, this was watery and not that great, and it was a little repetitive after the acai bowl. At least I had something to hold me over for a minute.
Finally around 7pm I had time to break out a couple pans and heat the Kale Quinoa Salad that was meant to be my lunch, and the Spicy Shredded Tofu. With the tofu I was allowed to choose two sides since it was a smaller portion. A total of four sides came with the meal plan, two sides of black beans and two sides of Brussels sprouts. I went with both packs of beans.
So, the salad was great as-is. It had cranberries and almonds it, and I could smell the garlic while it cooked. I did not add a thing.
The tofu also was wonderful, kind of like a buffalo tofu but not as spicy. I thought I’d mix the black beans right in, luckily I tasted them first. I hadn’t looked at the ingredients – they were *just* beans, no seasonings, no nothing. I added salt, pepper, and garlic with a little olive oil.
100 for shredded tofu
110 x2 for two servings of black beans
120 for added olive oil
I also had a Live Soda with a total of 60 calories.
After I added it all up and realized I had only consumed a total of 1100 calories…
Oh. Favorite of the day was the shredded tofu with black beans, once the black beans were seasoned.
