Lunch: 3 small carrots, split pea and carrot soup (see yesterday's post), fruit salad (same as yesterday).
snack: kiwi. I know, I'm not supposed to snack (according to Dr. Fuhrman). I wasn't hungry, just in the kitchen making smoothies so was around food. but it was just a kiwi. and it was good.
dinner: big easy salad. this time with peas instead of edamame (since my soup had more than enough legumes in it). 0.5 oz brazil nuts. small orange.
Total calories: 1370; protein 41 g; carbs 244 g; fat 36 g (24%).
I'll list my supplements too: 2 gentle care (vitamins), 2 osteosun (vitamin D), 1 oz DHA. It's fun to check out the vitamin and mineral amounts in my diet too (using the CRON-o-meter program). I'm usually over 100% on everything except B12 and D, which are 0%. Fortunately my supplements take care of them.
This doesn't seem like enough calories. But I was plenty full after my meals--the soup made me feel full all day. I had 2 oz of nuts/seeds (1 oz of brazil, 0.5 flaxseed in smoothie, 0.5 sunflower seeds in salad). This contributed 30 grams of fat and 340 calories so I can see why they are useful for calories in addition to being healthy. And I can see where if you eat too many you will eat a heck of a lot of calories. I really like brazil nuts so am glad that I got to eat them. Dr. Fuhrman recommended to me brazil nuts, walnuts, sunflower seeds, and sesame seeds to keep my heartbeat regular (described more in this post).
