Not so lazy Sunday

Sunday mornings, I always feel like a special treat for breakfast. This week was no exception, especially since I had worked so hard on keeping track of my calorie intake and exercise the past week!

So I made myself a nice breakfast of blueberry buckwheat pancakes, topped with other berries and sugar free syrup and some turkey sausage. The whole meal only cost me 470 calories! I omitted the oil from the pancake recipe and it didn’t taste any different, that alone saved me 120 cals! 🙂 I used a mix (3/4 cup), 1 egg, milk and 1/2 cup of blueberries. It would make 3 big pancakes, but my first one was a casualty, but I could have only eaten 2 anyway, so it worked out.

I had some coffee with Silk creamer on the go that morning and I didn’t take a snack to church because I knew this breakfast was going to hold me 🙂

When I got home, I made a salad of romaine, sunflower kernels, pecans, raisins, and a pack of chunk light tuna with 1 tbsp of whipped cottage cheese mixed in and sprinkled with just a bit of paprika (saw this at a restaurant once, not my own invention, haha). Oh and I used the balsamic vinaigrette ‘spritzer’…

For only 246 calories, this was a very filling me. I got to work on some much needed house cleaning and chores! But not before remembering to take my vitamin and a calcium + Vit D. supplement…

Later in the afternoon, I had some honey roasted peanuts to hold me over until dinner!

For dinner, I tried something new. I grilled some tofu on my George Foreman indoor grill (got the idea from Broccoli Hut):

Here is the tofu I used, this is my favorite brand and size because I hardly ever have leftovers!

I marinated half of it in Carribbean Jerk sauce and the other half in Mango Habanero (both from Buffalo Wild Wings):

After grilling each half for about 5-6 minutes, they looked (and tasted) done. I also enjoyed some italian cut green beans (from frozen) and a glass of milk…

Well, the Carribbean Jerk was fantastic, just as it was with my chicken last week! But the Mango Habanero was so freaking hot I thought my face was going to melt off! I have eaten it before on other things but for some reason I could hardly take it this time. So I don’t think I’ll marinate tofu with it again…still a good and filling dinner! I also had some cantaloupe, forgot to mention that 😉

More sports! I went to watch the WWE Unforgiven pay per view with my husband at the in-laws’ house. They had pizza, so thank God I ate before I went. Not only can I not eat all that cheese without getting sick but I just don’t like pizza that much unless it’s really gourmet and not just delivery. I’ve become such a snob!

I snacked on some grapes during the PPV and when I got home, had a serving of peanut butter pretzels so I wouldn’t go to bed hungry. My total for the entire day was 1556 calories, I was super happy with this, especially for a weekend!

Hope everyone enjoyed theirs as much as I did 🙂
