Kung Pao

Not much of interest today.  I got up and went to the gym – YAY! Otherwise it’s been a pretty boring day.

Breakfast (311 cal): Egg white/spinach/cabot on toast with two cucumber wedges and half a banana +PB on the side.

Morning Snack (455 cal): Oikos with cinnamon and a big plate of watermelon. Watermelon is so good. Seriously. Oh, and I’ve been super hungry today so I also had a 100 calorie pack of walnuts and almonds. And then a container of Cheerios.

Lunch (448 cal): I was trying to have a lighter luch do to the huge snack, not sure it helped.  Salad contains romaine/greens, broccoli, cauliflower, green pepper, celery, onion, cucumbers, carrots, avocado, Quorn cutlet, and FF Italian dressing.  I also had an apple as I walked out the door.

Snack (175 cal): Let’s just say its a good thing I have depleted my snack drawer at work now, otherwise this would have been a VERY bad calorie day. I blame it on PMS. My snack was a bowl of AMy’s Chunky Vegetable Soup with about 1/2 a serving of MorningStar Crumbles.

Dinner (391 cal): Kung Pao IMG_0783over bulgur for dinner tonight. I have been having a lot of fun trying to make Chinese sauces – corn starch is an amazing thing. My kung Pao Sauce contained:

  • 1 T lite soy sauce
  • 1 t garlic chili sauce
  • 1/2 T sherry
  • 1/2 T rice vinegar
  • 1 packet splenda (or 1/2 t sugar)
  • 1/8 C broth
  • 1/2 t cornstarch

Very tasty dish.  I like this much better than the General Tso’s I’ve made recently.
