Sample Meals

Monday, November 9, 2009

My morning class was canceled :]! So you're getting an early bonus post! Ha. I received an e-mail about what food I've been eating, and I wanted to give you guys some ideas of what a typical meal is like for me. Hopefully in the future I can get into the habit of posting my daily menus, but for now I'll show you a few meals I've had over the last week or so.

Grilled Zucchini & Spinach Wrap
To start, I cut up one medium-sized zucchini and browned them in a pan with some pepper...

The spinach wrap was easy: 1 wheat tortilla w/a thin layer of ranch dressing, filled with fresh spinach leaves.

Bread w/peanut butter, peaches, and milk
This is a really easy breakfast for me. 1 slice wheat bread, thin layer of peanut butter, 1 cup of nonfat milk, and fruit (here it's peaches).

Scrambled eggs and a banana
Pretty self-explanatory. Took 2 large eggs, added pepper, and scrambled. Good source of protein & potassium!

(that's ketchup on my eggs - is that weird?)
-304 cals, 11 gof

Beans & Rice
Sorry for the crappy picture. This is about a cup of brown rice covered with approx. 2 cups of ranch style beans. My grandma used to make this (except with white rice and a whole bunch of meat and spices in the beans) so it's comforting. Also very filling!

Ham n cheese Sandwich & Broccoli
A simple but tasty lunch, this is a pretty common meal for me. 2 slices wheat bread, thin layer of mayo, 1 slice cheddar cheese, 2 thin slices ham, spinach leaves, and onions. I also usually have a little ranch dressing to dip my broc in.

-728 cals, 38 gof (Note: You can save 225 calories & 21 grams of fat by getting rid of the cheese and the salad dressing. This meal, including those, fit into my calories for that day, so it worked.)



I'm not much of a chef, hah. But there you have it! Hope this helps :]. Love you all!
