What I ate on Thursday

A friend and I were chatting last night about what we normally eat in a day, and I thought y'all might be interested.

Breakfast
1/3 cup oatmeal (cooked in 3/4 cup water)
1/4 cup raisins
1/3 cup unsweetened soy milk
a dash of straight cranberry juice diluted with 1 cup water

1 mug of herbal tea (regular mugs, not the gigantic sort)

Snack
1 6 oz nonfat yogurt
4 triscuit-type crackers (about 1/2 a serving)
1 piece from a Ritter Sport dark chocolate bar (1/6 of a serving)

one mug of herbal tea

Lunch
(this is a little weird even for me)
1 baked sweet potato (about 1 1/2 cups)
1 tbsp low fat sour cream
1 pita bread
2 tbps babaghanoush
1 cup water

Tea
1 mug green tea
6 tea biscuits (one serving; very low sugar)
1 piece chocolate

1 cup water

Dinner
1 1/2 cups cooked corkscrew pasta
2/3 cup peas
1 tbsp crumbled bacon
1 hardboiled egg
1 tbsp unsalted butter
fresh ground black pepper
1/4 cup fresh grated parmesan
1 glass pino grigio

1 Edy's fruit bar (no sugar added)

1 mug chamomile tea

Oh, and I forgot to mention yesterday that one way to help with portion control is to use smaller dishes. Just like restaurant meals have gotten larger, so have the plates and bowls we're sold. I have a set of dishes from the late 1960's and the dinner plates are much smaller than, for example, a Fiesta dinner plate (which I also have--in pink!).

Do you have any idea what your carb/calorie intake is for a day? I'd be curious to know.

Nope, not a clue.

But I'll figure it out sometime this week and let you know.
