Changes in the Foods I Eat Part III (Dinner)
The last problem with dinner is when I eat. Obviously the later you eat dinner, the worse it is for you. I contribute this to growing up in a house where it was very typical to eat, and not the healthiest meals, at 8 or 9 o'clock.
Changes I've Made: The biggest change I have made is how much I eat. I try hard to limit home-cooked meals to one serving. When we go out I try to look at the menu ahead of time and find something within an acceptable calorie range. If Salmon is an option I almost always get that now and it's usually served with some vegetable.
My one weakness is Buffalo Wild Wings. I love chicken wings!!! Again, the difference is how many wings I eat and not using any ranch or blue cheese. I loves "sauces" but have realized that there are a ton of calories in things like ranch dressing and blue cheese. It was a bit of an adjustment, but I've made it and now it's all about moderation.
Snacking at Night:
As I mentioned earlier two of my worst night-time snacks were ice cream and chips and queso. Too tired to look up calories for these things, but it's a given that they were through the roof.
Changes I've Made:
My favorite snack now is frozen mixed fruit with a little sweetner on top and a little milk. Thanks to my wife for introducing me to this a long time ago. This night-time snack is about 130 calories and I would say frozen fruit and a little milk are much more healthy, in terms of nutrients, then ice cream, chips, and queso.
Alright....that's all for now. I've shared the major changes I have made in the foods I eat on any given day! To read it is amazing to myself.
Jenn asked me what I was going to blog about next and I'm really not sure, but I know it will come to me. I do have my next post ready to go, but will probably wait to share until tomorrow.
See you then!
