Snack: Erica got given a load of cookies by the nurses at above hospital, and wanted to open the kinako. She only had one half of one mochi, so I just HAD to eat the rest. It's been a very kinako week!
Lunch: okra, carrot, kelp and yamaimo salad with aojiso dressing. Erica ate most of the okra. The kid actually likes okra with aojiso dressing! One banana.
Snack: handful of nuts. Seeing as nuts are very high calorie, I have been working on diminishing the size of the 'handful', which used to be about half a bag. I was down to 3 peanuts, a cashew, an almond and one and a 1/4 walnut halves
Tofu steak with mushroom sauce, salad with aojiso dressing and some corn, no butter! Kiddie lefotvers included two gyouza and a mouthful of tofu steak.
Dessert will be a peach. Last night I had an apple.
Anchan and I decided to challenge the List of 50 tips she posted the other day. Any other takers? Shall we start with No. 1 -To work out just how many calories you can eat daily, multiply your ideal body weight in pounds by 14.
Okay, so the IDEAL ideal would be 65kg: 2000 calories, more than I was aiming for actually.
And the more realistic, at least by Christmas please 70: 2170.
I'm generally aiming for 500 calories meals, which is all talk really as I am still not actually counting any calories!
