What are you having for dinner tonight!

Re: What are you having for dinner tonight!

Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday are usually salad nights:
If it isn't Panera, I usually make a "killer salad" in layered phases:
2 cups of Lettuce, halved grape tomatoes, blueberries, low-sugar craisins.
Halved black olives, sliced/quartered radishes, sliced/quartered cucumber, sliced baby carrots, sliced/sectioned red onion rings, sliced green pepper.
Halved pickeled beets, green or kalmata olives, either cottage cheese or mild pepper rings with deli pepper strips.
Topped with shredded mild cheddar and some crushed basil/tomato feta.

It's a ton of food that's only 286 calories, 42g carbs, 14g fat, 13g protein when measured out correctly. I wolf my food and it takes me about a half hour to finish.

 

Edit: The reason for Mon/Wed/Sat is a holdover from training. I used to have long training runs on Tues, Thus & Sun and didn't like to get bloated. I don't subscribe to "carbing up" the day before (actually think that's dangerous). I do subscribe to the theory of heavy proteins the day of, which keeps your muscles in shape.

Yeah, I actually should have thought of that. My wife is diabetic and is limited to something like 30g carbs/day.


D'oh... yeah, that is low. Should have been 30g/meal. lol

30g a meal would be very bad for me (although it'd also be quite delicious!)
