    tropical fruit salad--calories:80,protein:0 grams, cabs:20 grams, sodium:10grams

    Banana cream pie yogurt--calories:80, protein:7 grams, carbs:13grams, sodium:110mg

    and 2 graham crackers with peanut butter on them,and couple cups of coffee.I'm not into measuring the peanut butter so I couldn't figure out the calories and other stuff.

    This took me almost an hour to eat...cuz I'm to busy online to eat faster. What did you all have for lunch?

    Watch out for those graham crackers... those can have some crazy calorie counts. The ones in my cabinet are something like 120 calories for 2 crackers... which is why, they are still sitting in my cabinet.

    they are just from little individual packages and I had 2 of them, so multiply above #'s by 2.

    I had a handful of cereal (nature's path harvest flakes), some homemade pineapple blackbean chili with 2 corn tortillas, and an apple with a glass of 100% fruit juice blend.

    Haha, I don't have an official recipe, (the only thing that really makes it chili is the can of low-fat turkey chili I add towards the end) I pretty much just went in the kitchen and made it up as I went along, but I'll try...

    Bring black beans to a boil then drop heat down to a simmer. Add 2 small chopped white onions. About an hour later, (these take a while to cooK) add in a bit of cayenne pepper, salt, and black pepper. 1/2 hour after that, add whole cloves of garlic (as many as you like) and a whole can of crushed pineapple (including the juice). Add a cup of salsa. Cook until beans are tender then add chili at last minute. Yummy served with fresh corn tortillas fried up in olive oil.
