mar. 4

morning smoothie,  even though I wasn't really hungry yet but felt I needed to eat before yoga.

snack after yoga:  0.5 oz brazil nuts

lunch:  1 cup beans (adzuki, white, and chickpeas, and onion and herbs).  Every once in a while, I just throw together my almost empty jars of beans and cook them up so they don't get old.  large baked sweet potato.  steamed broccoli, carrots and cauliflower.  1/2 cup blackberries and 1/2 cup strawberries.  1 kiwi.   snacked on celery and carrots while preparing.   boy did this fill me up.  

dinner:  big easy salad.  2 small apples, carrots and celery, 1 small kiwi.  plenty full after this.  

Total calories:  1460, protein 47 g (10%), carbs 290g, fat 25 g (15%).   

Seems low on calories but I was stuffed after lunch and dinner.  I was also full this morning from yesterday.   So it seems that this calorie range is fine for me.  I'm not losing or gaining weight.   I wasn't in the mood for many nuts because the beans filled me up so much.  I was in the mood for fruit.

barb, are you trying to lose or gain weight, eat healthfully? Or are you trying to find what particulars you need to make eating healthfully stick?

I want to eat healthily, and maintain my current weight. I lost about 30 lbs when I became vegan and started eating healthy a few years ago. Then I've just been on this gradual journey towards Fuhrman's plan which appears to be the most healthy. But adopting it had some surprises for me, like overdoing the beans and nuts, and getting more sensitive to sweets.
