This is yesterday’s list. It isn’t what I planned to eat. Well some of it is. But it is what I actually ate. Warts and all. There is way more fat in this day’s menu than I usually aim for, but sometimes that’s what happens. The day gets away from me, and I don’t do as well as I’d like. Still, I did stick pretty close to my calorie level (1500) so I’m not having a cow over it. I’m just starting fresh with the next day, and the next meal.
The chicken liver pate, while delicious and nutritious (and a good way to use up the chicken livers that I thawed and didn’t have time to shake and bake, so they had to be boiled before they went bad so pretty much all they were good for was chopped liver spread or pate) is pretty high in fat. As was the meatloaf, which I usually take pains to remove the fat from, but this time I was hungry and had to eat right now, so I didn’t drain off the fat like normal, plus I had an extra helping because it was so good and I was starving. When I’m rushed I don’t do all the things I can do to make healthy choices. I suspect I’m not alone in my failing.
