Eating out and finding balance

I am catching up two days again.  When I got back from my nephews going away party, I was too tired to sign in and write my blog yesterday.  I will start with Thursday.  For breakfast I had two eggs, steamed broccoli and cauliflower and half of a small avocado.

I was so full from breakfast that I forgot to eat my mid-morning snack.  I started getting hungry about 11:30 and decided to make my lunch earlier than normal.  It threw my day off a bit but I decided that I couldn't make up the missed food.  Lunch was a salad with a cup of vegetables served with a can of tuna (in water) and a side of strawberries.

I was so hungry by afternoon snack that I ate most of it before taking a picture.  I added cinnamon to my turkey slices and made cinnamon apples.

Supper was a base salad and it called for sautéed garlic broccoli.  So I warmed up my leftover chicken in with the sautéing garlic broccoli to add more flavor.

Friday.  I was very careful with my food on Friday.  I knew that in the evening I would be going to supper with my sister and her sons for a good-bye party for her oldest son who is moving to Texas.  My breakfast was sautéed spinach and chicken.  Morning snack was pumpkin seeds (shelled).  Lunch was the Turkey meatballs with sautéed tomatoes and it called for spaghetti squash (which I have not been able to find at the stores near me.) Instead I took my zucchini and used my potato peeler.  I made long thin slices of zucchini that resembled noodles.  Then I added it to the mix in the frying pan and allowed it to cook together for a mock spaghetti.

My afternoon snack was rice cereal with protein powder.  Then it was time to head out for supper.  The restaurant we went to didn't have a lot of vegetable choices on the salad bar.  So I took a lot of lettuce mix (it had carrot slices and cabbage mixed into it.)  The coleslaw was on the drier side and the serving spoon was slotted so I was able to tap out a little more of the dressing.
Salad Bar Choices
I was scheduled to have tilapia for supper.  They didn't have that option but they did have broiled torsk.  Without my scale, I had to estimate 5 ounces.  I figured this looked like about 7-8 ounces.  I think my choice was okay Saturday morning when I stepped on the scale I was down almost a pound (0.8#) from two days before.
