What to Eat?
Tuesday, November 06, 2012
A few nights ago the bf wanted to share some chicken fettucini Alfredo with me.
After seeing it was 500 calories I declined.
He then saw me eating something 'light' (that's what he calls frozen dinners).
A while after, he sees me eating Chips Ahoys with peanut butter and says, "REALLY?!?"
I asked, what happen?
You'd rather eat cookies than chicken Alfredo? He asks.
I had my dinner, this is dessert. I explained.
He couldn't understand why I wouldn't eat a 500 calorie dinner, but I would eat a 300 calorie one AND about 200 calories worth in cookies.
Yes, the chicken IS protein.
My dinner had protein, too.
What my dinner didn't have was all the fat from the Alfredo sauce and all the carbs from the fettucini.
I don't know how to explain it, other than my food made me feel like I was eating more food for less calories.
I don't think the chicken fettucini alfredo would have filled me up, it would have been a waste!!
