Day 633: Pumpkin pie

Posted by Paola

Oops, I accidentally deleted today’s food photos.

10:40am Porridge oats + tea

Made with oats, water, milk, sultanas and pumpkin seeds. Served with fake butter and sweetener. The instructions said 50g a portion. I used 70g and it was loads.

1 serving calories protein carbs fat fibre
2g sweetener 8 0.0 1.8 0.0 0.0
100ml semi-skimmed milk 49 3.4 5.0 1.7 0.0
18g sultanas 53 0.5 12.5 0.1 0.4
11g pumpkin seeds 64 3.2 1.7 5.0 0.6
29g fake butter 103 0.0 0.9 11.0 0.0
70g oats 252 3.9 21.1 2.9 3.0
Total 528 11 43 21 4


If I’d made it with water only, 50g oats, 2g sweetener, 10g sultanas and 20g of fake butter comes to 288 calories.

2:10pm Cottage cheese salad + tea

3:25pm Frozen berries with yoghurt

1 serving calories protein carbs fat fibre
2g sweetener 8 0.0 1.8 0.0 0.0
126g frozen berries 43 1.1 9.2 0.1 2.8
201g low-fat yoghurt 141 11.1 15.7 3.0 0.0
Total 191 12 27 3 3

Hmm. 120g frozen berries + 145g low-fat yoghurt with 2g sweetener would be 150 calories. A much better total.

Afternoon drink: pint of fizzy squash

6pm Two pieces of roasted pumpkin with olive oil

After roasting pumpkin for the pumpkin pie I’m making for my turn at hosting the cake club tomorrow.

6:15pm Tomato and coconut beef chilli with dumplings

Ingredients: passata, reduced-fat coconut milk, beef-style pieces, aduki beans, sweetcorn and onions. Flavoured with paprika, fresh chilli and lots of garlic. With wholemeal dumplings. Served with yoghurt and extra virgin olive oil.

I made myself use a small glass bowl. I ate it slowly. It was so yum, I had another bowl immediately, not waiting as promised. :-( I vowed not to have anything else to eat today. I felt really very full afterwards.

8pm Pecan nuts * 4

Picked at while baking tomorrow’s pie.

Still feeling full.
