Draglist's Journal, 30 Oct 14

Another 600 calorie workday led to a 207.6 pre-dinner weigh in. Ate a delicious and filling dinner with salmon, a massive salad, and some 'healthy ice cream' (with a whole bag of spinach hidden in it). Actually ended up at 1342 calories, so I have up to 1500 to eat tomorrow and still end the month at a 1900 per day average.

Update: Did an hour on the treadmill tonight but at only 3.5 mph to work the kinks out of the foot. That burned a few hundred extra calories.

Here are the 10/30/14 Tanita numbers (pre-dinner, pre-workout):

My curiosity is piqued. How do you hide a whole bag of spinach in ice cream?

One cup almond milk, two cups of frozen berries, a scoop of protein powder, and six cups of baby spinach. Place in blender and crank it up! I have a Ninja that really works great. It came out like a smooth berry sorbet. You cannot tell the spinach is in there. I often use kale, too.

How much spinach Ice Cream does this make. Do you eat it as a meal or freeze it for later? Do you know how many calories you get in a cup of this delight? J

Hi Jovial! It makes a good quart. Being a glutton, I eat it all myself. I suppose you could freeze it for later but I've never tried. I don't know if it would retain its consistency, etc. The almond milk is 30 cals, the fruit is 70 calories a cup, the protein is 130 calories per scoop, and the spinach is 40 calories for six cups (you don't need that much). So a quart of the stuff ends up being about 340 calories.

Bill's ice cream is 341 calories, according to his food log. It is healthy, without all the unnatural ingredients you find in store bought ice cream. That would be too many sugars for me to eat, unless I made it into three servings and froze two of them for other days.

I should have refreshed the page to see that Bill already answered. ;)

Thanks, Deb! I went and looked again and here are the nutrition numbers: 407 sodium, 3.70 grams fat, 40.53 grams carbs, 14.0 grams fiber, 38.15 grams protein and 341 calories. If you use frozen strawberries instead of the mixed berries, you can save 40 calories and some of the carbs. There are other protein powders that are only 100 calories per scoop, too. Do that and cut the greens in half and you can do a quart for 250 calories.

Love those numbers. :)

Good job on the numbers!

Mmm still have to try your "ice cream". I'd probably use kale as my little store always has huge bunches, they fill an entire plastic grocery bag, yesterday they were $1.19 a bunch. Lots of nutrients for a good price.

Absolutely, wholefoodnut! A fun way to get those leafy greens! Thanks, Deb and Kattay!

Have to put some frozen berries on my grocery list. Trying a new natural foods supermarket this week.

One thing I haven't tried is buying some fresh and then freezing them myself. That would be interesting.

Raspberries freeze beautifully. I picked mine last summer and froze them on cookie sheets then put them in containers. I'm almost out though. M
