Sweet vs. Savory
I decided to continue my "eat what I want" theme and swapped the leftover chili on my sweet potato for root vegetables and plain yogurt! YUM!! I had 1.25 POUNDS of root vegetables today. Yikes! I'm up to 48 grams of fiber for the day - but I've seen higher! They are my favorite food though : ) Husband had chili and cheese on his dry russet potato. Ew! I'll take sweet any day!
Sweet potato was super filling, but my mouth wanted to keep eating afterwards. Too much mush maybe and not enough texture variety?
......so I had a pear core as I prepped for breakfast. It did the trick. Now I'm REALLY full!!
That sweet potato was 13 oz before it was cooked...which clocks in at 313 calories!!! MAN! Sure, it's healthy, but that was NOT the biggest sweet potato I've seen before. Warning to those who don't have food scales: I would have called this a "medium-sized" sweet potato, which CK says is 103 calories. And it says a "large" is 160. Well mine was DOUBLE a large, so I have no idea what potatoes these food search engines base their data off of. Be careful out there!
Oh yeah, and I had cottage cheese and cranberry for a snack and TOTALLY forgot to photograph it!!! I didn't eat until 4:30 and wasn't even that hungry, but it was good. I'm having trouble making myself hungry these days! PB oatmeal....??
