I realize that I've never actually posted a full day of food. I usually just post the most interesting things I eat. But today, I'll join Jemima and post all my eats. I eat around 2700 cals a day to maintain my weight, as a result of eating 3300+ to gain weight. I can do some sort of light exercise, like yoga or walking, while eating this amount and not lose weight. Let's start with the most important meal of the day!
I liked the tofacos I made the other night so much, I decided to just eat the filling as a tofu scramble.
I also had an apple
And carrot cake oats!
After cooking my oatmeal as usual, I added 8 shredded baby carrots, dashes of cinnamon and nutmeg, 2 tbs chopped walnuts, 1 dried fig, and 1 tbs plain yogurt mixed with a bit of maple syrup for "frosting". Yum yum yum.
For my AM snack, I had an apple pie larabar, one of my favorite flavors.
At lunch, I was just trying to use up the last of the tofu in the fridge! I hate wasting food. I made a mock.. egg salad (or chicken or tuna? I don't know the difference) sammich. I mashed maybe an eighth of a block of tofu with 1/4 cup chickpeas, 1 tbs olive oil mayo, sprinkles of garlic powder, dried dill and poultry seasoning, and a splash of lemon juice.
I had it with carrots, a bowl of plain yogurt, and a new Kashi fruit and grains bar! Dark chocolate coconut flavor.
Bar review: One word. Amazing! I was expecting the dark chocolate to be a hard, crunchy glaze on top of the bar. Instead, it was more like.. fudge! There was a nice hint of coconut too. The only cons to it were that it was a bit small, and there weren't enough walnuts.
For my snack, I had pumpkin yogurt. Plain yogurt mixed with canned pump and cinnamon&nutmeg. I accidentally put cumin in instead of nutmeg! So I had to use lots of cinnamon.
I also had some almonds, a pomegranate fruit leather from Target, and an orange.
For dinner I made sundried tomato and spinach fritattas. Individual fritattas, they were too cute!
I also had a clementine and two slices of toast w/ butter.
For my snacks tonight, I've had (and plan on having) a mint-chocolate luna tea cake, a candy cane, almonds, and a banana.
There you have it! 2700 calories. I hope this helps some people in need of a high-calorie meal plan. Typically I don't eat so many bars, but I hadn't been to the grocery store in a while so I was short on real food.
I'm kind of upset now. My dad was looking at these two fancy chocolate bars that I got him for Christmas. I picked them out especially for him. He said "Are these mine? I'm on a diet this year, you can have them." Grrr! This annoyed me for two reasons. a) He doesn't even remember that I'm the one who got him those and b) He makes it sound like just because he's watching what he's eating, little "treats" like chocolate are off limits. This was very triggering for me. He doesn't understand me or my ED at all. This is why our relationship is messed up. He knows it's messed up. If he doesn't want to put in the effort to remember what his daughter got him for Christmas, fine. Fine fine. Super fine.
P.S. I just got my camera, why are my pictures so blurry? I used close up mode and all. Tips?
