The pecans were my downfall today. I ate my soup and then had this overwhelming desire to snack.  I didn't have any thing "bad" in my house to snack on but I really wanted something.  I should have just let it go and forgot about it.  Or better yet, had the salad that I had planned. But instead, I knew there were a small bit of pecans left.  I was saving them to make granola.  Well, the pecans are gone.  I had about 1/2 cup or 2 oz.  So way too many calories. 

The only good thing about eating so many pecans was that I wasn't hungry for the rest of the afternoon.  I wasn't overly hungry for dinner and should have had less but it was so GOOD!  I made like a fried rice with ham, peas, pineapple & egg but with quinoa. I'm very happy how it turned out.  1 cup is 240 calories, 16 grams of protein and super filling. 

Tuesday Results =
Eggs, corn tortillas & Peach salsa = 300
Banana = 100
Enchilada Soup - 185
Cheese - 110
Pecans - 400

Tomorrow, more leftovers. Plus a new apple risotto recipe for dinner.  I'm hoping to go for my 3 mile walk/run in the morning if it isn't raining!  (that's why I have the raisins, to give me energy while running!)

  1. Whoa. Pecans have HOW MANY calories? I'm so disappointed. Not in you but in the amount of calories that pecans. Dang it!
