Friday, July 19, 2019

July 19, 2019. Total Calories including snack binge was 3056

Here is the breakdown:
The Hormel chili was 540 Kcal. That was the highest calorie food. It would have been better to use some sauce instead of the can of chili for the chicken breast I was cooking..
Also, the ice cream was 500 Kcal. It was an impulse buy.
pasta Roni was 775 Kcal. !!
without ice cream, chili, and pasta roni it would have been 1775 kcal less !!!!!
OR 1300 Kcal Total for the day!!!!
whats common to Pasta Roni, Ice Cream, and Hormel Chili?
I think it is that they are processed!
So Is Raw / cooked food less calories? (also less tasty)
I dont know. maybe buy spices seperately from processed package ?

    If you do it properly home cooked meals can be far more tasty (as opposed to salty or laden with sugar or unhealthy fats) and a lot less calories. When I have pizza I make my own. Not traditionally a lower calorie food, OR one with much fibre, but the way I make mine it is heaps more filling, much lower in calories, sodium and much higher in fibre. I make the base, too. According to my 24 yr old grandson, it tastes like ones you would buy (not the mass manufactured and frozen ones) and is far more filling.

    I would DEFINITELY buy spices and herbs. A little of them and they go a loooong way.

    Sometimes it is better to make your own, but not everyone has the time. Also on prepared have to watch portion sizes & sodium content. Good luck finding alternate methods!
