430am ANOTHER Bar...fruit flavored this time (110cal)
715am Banana (100) and coffee (140)
I went to BSC today for JUNA and was NOT PREPARED...I was running late trying to get showered and out the door with my little Somalian girl by 715 so I forgot to take a snack. Ugghhhh broke a bootcamp rule and did not eat anything around 1015 (hungry hungry hungry). I went by Zoe's and got the grilled chicken pita with fruit on the side (and a diet coke-will catch up on my water though). I went online to check it out and YAY!!! - Zoes's list their calories. My lunch was 390 calories.

One bunch of kale (removes stems and tear into bite size pieces)
1 tablespoon of olive oil
1 teaspoon of sea salt or seasoned salt
Spread kale on top of parchment paper on a cookie tray,drizzle with olive oil. Spin your kale in a salad spinner so it is dry going in the oven. Bake at 350 for 12-15 min. Kale should be as crisp as chips. Sprinkle with salt!! My new favorite veggie. So dinner was 4 oz grilled chicken breast and crispy kale chips. (300)
Feeling spectacularly nutritious!!

Coffee (the inexpensive kind odd people make at home) (40-50) 1 square of dark chocolate (50) just cause. More water but maybe not enough so drinking some now. Dinner will be asparagus (really) smoked salmon (160) (family is having pasta can't blog that now can I) greek salad (a few feta and olive oil cals).
So I love smoked salmon low low carb, high protein and a little healthy fat. And because I know you will call me out on this - Yes, I am ignoring the sodium in the smoked salmon. Kinda like some people ignore the carbs in their wine. Love Ya, Leigh

After my massage, oh wait that wasn't me, I did laundry for the rest of the day. There is something about cleaning, laundry, etc that makes me want to snack. Anybody? 4 oreos and a glass of milk later...the milk was not for dunking but to make me feel better about the cookies. There are 55 cals in 1 oreo. Uggghhh. I tried to get back on track with the water intake but was distracted by thinking of ways to get out of blog. My husband made a roast for dinner (thank you John-if only I could have eaten those potatoes and carrots). I had the meat and salad instead. I am drinking water now and planning to get right back on track tomorrow. Still mad about serving size on pasta-2 oz??

OK so NOT trying to butt in on Leigh's day to blog but wanted to share this smoothie recipe with you from one of our campers...the calories are approximately 550. That sounds like a lot so you could use it as a meal replacement or get creative and figure out ways to lower the calories (ie skim milk or almond milk, omit or reduce the walnuts, use 1/2 banana instead of a whole, drink half and save half for later, etc). Get creative...you gals are smart! Let us know what you come up with!
Put in the blender in this order:
¼ cup walnuts
¼-1/2 cup greek yogurt
1 T. honey or to tast
Dash of salt
Shake or two of cinnamon (optional)
Capful of vanilla extract (optional)
½ cup frozen fruit (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, etc)
¼ cup milk
Splash OJ (optional)
Blend for a few minutes until smooth. You may have to stop the blender and push the fruit down and continue blending.
Make it your own:
Add a handful of spinach leaves or carrots.
Use Unsweetened Almond Milk (50% more calcium and fewer calories)
Try some other frozen fruit: peaches, blackberries, cherries
