Lunch of Fruit and Veggies

I decided to cook the remainder of my spinach today...so I'd have something hot. Then, on the same plate...I added 2 stalks of celery for crunch, 1 pear and about a dozen grapes for sweetness, and a few cherry tomatoes for color. I had some more of the tomato/onion/cilantro/raspberry chutney on the side with three sliced strawberries. In total...all of this added up to only 353 calories according to the USDA Super Food Tracker.
 Earlier,
For breakfast, it was two cups of coffee with creamer and mid morning...a snack was one cup of non-fat buttermilk and 3 almonds...because I had forgotten to eat!
Then this lunch...
For dinner...I want a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. And I need the protein...
I cut back on the amounts of peanut butter...and jelly...and am using a low-calorie high-fiber bread. To this I'll add a small glass of 2%  milk....cause you know I have to have my milk!
For snacks later will be an orange and a snack bar this evening if I get hungry.
My total food plan for today calculates to just under the 1200 calories. That's within the per day limit I have set for myself, with my doctor's blessings.
I'm trying to be good this week too...because I know that I'll blow my calories while on the road this weekend...and that's okay...as I won't go nuts with chips and sweets...but, the calories are still bound to be higher. I plan on enjoying my visit with Jackie and the ladies of the Magnolia Guild!
So looking forward to the class!
