I’ve posted separately about the Vegetable Dumplings that we had for lunch. For dinner, I took four very small veal steaks, cut off all the fat and put them onto skewers. I think it makes it look like more meat that way and also it means I can put them on the grill without needing additional fat.
I think I’ve been estimating salads low – we tend to have iceberg which I presumed was like celery: more water than flavour and very low in calories. But today I noticed my calorie counter thing says that a head of lettuce is 105 calories! I’m not convinced this is true and I will start weighing it to check by gram (the “piece of” measurements in the USDA lists are wonderfully vague and all seem to be fairly high in terms of calorie count – maybe they just assume Americans always take the biggest they can find?) but I did a rough count of the salad ingredients in case.
|Meal||Food | Drink||Calories|
|Breakfast||Coffee * 3||90|
|Lunch||Dumplings and carrot salad||534|
|Dinner||116g veal (skewered)||134|
|Snack||3 * options||111|
Cliff said he liked dinner more than lunch which was pretty depressing considering it took me 15 minutes as opposed to 2 hours! *grumble*
I was up until 4am playing games, hence the extra Options.
