Day 13 - Feeling Good

Tasty Bite will be breakfast today.  The price on the left is for a case of 12 packets.  This is an OK price for a case but usually these are on sale locally and we stock up.  Sam's Club/Costco, Trader Joe's, Meijer's all sell this line of Indian food (Trader Joe's has a different name but made by same Indian company).  I love the spiciness and the super convenience of the packaging.  The dal is vacuum sealed in a little aluminum-type pouch that is shelf-stable for years.  When ready to eat, pour contents in a bowl and zap for 90 seconds.  Presto!

The only small downside is that each pouch serves 2 and the lefts overs are a bit of a hassle for me since I eat them at work so I usually just eat both servings and call it a meal.  For this packet of Spinach Dal, described as "lightly spiced spinach with yellow lentils", the entire packet (2 serving) has 220 calories, 10 grams fat, 26 carbs, 8 grams of fiber and 10 grams of protein.  Just about right for breakfast, in my opinion!  The ingredients are "water, spinach, lentils, poatoes, onions, sunflower oil, corn starch, ginger, garlic, sugar, chilies, salt, and spices.  Vegan, no MSG, gluten free, no preservatives."

There are many varieties of Tasty Bite, some having more carbs than others.  My very favorite is Bombay Potatoes with Chick Peas.  Wow is it spicy, but because of the carb count, I'll save those packs for later.

Breakfast - spinach dal (220) and a chocolate candy (50)
Lunch - Sesame Noodle soup from Zoup (no bread) 16 oz, 160 cal, 16 carbs, 12 protein, V-8 30
Snack Buddy - 1 tablespoon peanut butter and a carrot (100)

Dinner - left over zucchini parmesan with pasta sauce, salad greens and baked kale chips (300? + 100)

For a daily total of 1000 calories plus maybe a little more for BLTs (bikes, licks and tastes).
