Day 3: Dinner Menu

On Fridays my family usually goes out to where all of the Food Trucks are and we call today "Food Truck Friday." I was really looking forward to going because there is this food truck, The Patty Wagon, that has grass fed hamburgers that are so delicious! I really crave them and just thinking about them right now makes me want one. Since I knew that the calories on these are a little high (I get two 3 oz burgers) I ate light today. Well, Big Bubs was not behaving so the food trucks were out of the question for him :(. I had to come with some alternative for dinner that had more calories then what I was planning. I also still have some more that I need to eat, but I am not sure what I will have and I want to get this post finished :)

Here is today's menu:

Steel-cut oatmeal with honey, fresh blueberries, and almond butter with flax seeds.
Tea with honey

Leftovers of the cauliflower crusted pizza
Salted Popped Potato Chips
Wasa Crispbread with tomato basil hummus and rotisserie chicken

Goldfish Crackers--the boys were having some and whenever they are out I cannot not have them.
Graham Cracker

Dinner Menu with Nutritional Information:

1/2 Bun
1 Vegan Burger
1 tsp mustard
1 tsp ketchup
handful of fresh spinach
2 tomato slices

1 cup of fresh spinach
1 tomato (I used the rest of the tomato after I cut the slices from the burger)
1/2 oz of crumbled goat cheese
4 cherries
1/4 chopped cucumber
1 tsp Cranberry, Walnut, & Gorgonzola Salad Dressing

Sweet Potatoes:
1 small (130g) sweet potato, sliced
*I heated the oven to 385 and sprayed a baking sheet with olive oil. Then I put the slices of the sweet potato on the baking sheet and sprayed them with olive oil and lightly salted them. I baked them for 20 minutes.
