Net calories – 1190
My back was sore all day, and I had to spend most of it studying for midterms. At night I went to a sort of reunion dinner with people from my highschool who also ended up at my university. I was so proud of my food choices: the original plan was to get Indian food, but they changed it to a sports bar last second where most of the menu consisted of burgers, fries, quesadillas, and other deliciously greasy food. But I chose a tofu salad! Unfortunately it was bigger than I ever could have imagined and salt-laden, but it was definitely the best thing I could have chosen.
Also, I came up with a way to satisfy my cravings for greasy, pizza-like food with bread and all. Even though I avoid processed/frozen foods 99% of the time, I caved and got lean pockets to tide me through those cravings. Unfortunately, the only lean pockets I can eat (vegetarian ones) are dry and pretty unappetizing on their own. But, I got smart about it: I microwaved it as instructed, sliced open the top, and stuffed it with smoked cheddar and veggie sausages. Then I topped it with low cal mozzarella and goat cheese. It ended up being just like pizza, but tasted a bit more gourmet and was much higher protein! Granted it was about ~400 calories, but it was better than me getting a pizza at a fast food place, since I knew exactly what was in this one nutrition-wise.
