A Healthy Transformation

A blog about diet, exercise, and health

Carb Lovers Diet, Day 5 September 3, 2010

Filed under: Uncategorized — fitnessie @ 3:45 am

Weight:  137.2

Exercise:  90 minute Bikram Yoga class

Breakfast

Green Machine Smoothie


I added 3 good-sized strawberries, but I felt like it was sort of a waste since I couldn’t taste them over the banana.  I would have rather just eaten them whole, or added flax instead!

Impromptu Snack

Gluten-Free Peanut butter Cookie

Damn that talented baking mother!  She was at it again, this time with the cooking class at my school.  They made delicious gluten-free peanut butter cookies (1 cup peanut butter, 1 cup sugar, 1 egg=12 delicious cookies).  I had one small cookie as a mid-morning snack.

Lunch

Isn’t my lunch box cute?

Leftover Chicken Primavera

I made this last night, and the 3 1/2 cups of it I had for lunch was filling and delicious!

Snack

Greek Yogurt


This time I added 2 TBSP oats, 2 TSP honey, and a handful of blueberries.  I needed something protein filled and filling before Bikram, which I go to straight from work, so I made sure to pack this in my lunch box!

Dinner

Black Bean Tacos

  • 3 corn tortillas
  • 1/2 can black beans (low sodium, rinsed and drained)
  • 3 TBSP shredded cheese
  • 3 TBSP salsa
  • shredded carrots
  • lettuce

Toast the tortillas on a stove top, heat the beans in the microwave, and then portion and serve!  It was a super easy dinner, but honestly it wasn’t that tasty.  I should have taken the time to spice up the beans, and it was missing a lot of the protein I was craving.  I wish I had yellow corn tortillas, and that I could have added avocado and chicken.

They left me feeling unsatisfied, so I even had…

Dessert!?

70% Dark Chocolate 100 Calorie bar from Trader Joes

I split this with my boyfriend, so it was pretty minimal in calories, but it bothers me that I felt like I needed it.  Maybe if the dinner had been more satisfying…

  1. Don’t feel bad! I totally like to have something sweet after a meal so I totally get it! But dark chocolate is healthy and you only had half. And in the end, it help with satiety which is much better then eating something that you didn’t really want.
