What I Ate Wednesday #4

If you stopped by yesterday then you know that I am on a mission....a mission to knock off ten annoying pounds and keep them off. So expect some healthy, low calorie, veggie filled meals.

Breakfast: Oatmeal with peanut butter and banana. This is pretty much my go-to meal when I am trying to drop a few pounds. Its about 200 calories and keeps me full until lunch.

Lunch: Mixing bowl sized salad! Lettuce, spinach, tomatoes, squash, feta, avocado, celery, cottage cheese, and balsamic dressing. About 300 calories and there is such much to it!

Snacks: Peanut butter on a rice cake....sorry to be boring but it is my go to snack. 100 calories

Air-popped popcorn as a late night snack. 150 calories

Dinner: Mushroom risotto with asparagus. This recipe is soooo good! I love it. It's definitely in my top 10. I make a half batch and we split it with roasted asparagus on the side. I just season the asparagus with some olive oil, lemon pepper, and lemon juice. Then stick it in the oven for about 30 minutes at 375. 500 calories for both.
