Nutritional, Healthy lunch and Holiday Party choices

Today for lunch I had 1 ounce of walnuts, 1/2 sweet potato, a California veggie burger, 16 ounces of water and 1 apple.

The walnuts represent the protein in the meal. 200 calories

The sweet potato represents the complex carbohydrate with fiber 150 calories

the apple is the healthy fruit  100 calories

the veggie burger is the healthy vegetables- carrots, peas, 110 calories

The whole meal was 560 calories. I washed it down with 16 ounces of water.

Eating this healthy may be a challenge  for some. It requires planning ahead of time.

For example, our business network group is having a holiday party

Here are the holiday platter choices- that were ordered.

mozzarella and tomato caprice, cold antipasto, potato skins, provolone sticks, chicken wings, chicken spring rolls, calamari, fries, jumbo shrimp cocktail, mixed vegetable platter.

Have a Happy Holiday, Enjoy what you eat, eat less, enjoy more.
