This was a semi typical day, except for the pizza for dinner. We had a trader joe's pizza crust with tomatoes and cheese. I ate mushrooms on the side and forgot to log that.
What are your thoughts? Where should I make some changes? I think the fat grams seem kind of high but I don't really know. Maybe on the days that I am running, I should be eating more than this? Like I said, I've been feeling pretty tired by early evening and pretty much I eat when I'm hungry. I'll take anything you have to say. I know I need to fuel my body especially with running and the extra work it is doing to feed Nick! Constructive criticism - I like it.
Tonight's featured dinner: Spinach Frittata and Stuffed Portabello
Spinach Frittata is my once a week staple. It is so easy to make and gets in lots of spinach. It is delicious! Spinach Frittata - a recipe adapted from Cooking Light
4 egg whites
salt and pepper to flavor
one bag of frozen spinach
cheese of your liking or just skip the cheese
*You can also use mushrooms, or any veggies with the spinach.
** The original recipe calls for sauteed onions and smoked Gouda cheese.
Cook the spinach then add to a medium bowl. Beat the eggs and add them to the spinach, add in the cheese, salt and pepper. I cook it in a pie plate for 25-30 minutes until browned on the top.
Choose your stuffing - breadcrumbs, couscous, quinoa, brown rice...
Tonight I used quinoa.
Use about 1/2 cup to 1 cup of whatever you choose, place in a bowl (already cooked grains), add 1 tbsp butter, 1/4 c freshly grated locatelli cheese. Makes 2 portabellos Bake at 400 for 20 minutes.
