Ok so if you read my post from yesterday I said I was going to a fair last night and intended on having an array of yumminess. So I get there and guess what???? NO FRIED OREOS???? Very bummed about that. I was starving and decided to eat crawfish etoufee for dinner. Yum-mmmmy. So I ate about a cup of etoufee, waited 30 minutes and went hunting for my oreos. No luck so I settled for a fried hostess cupcake. It was pretty tasty but didn't compare to my oreos. Aww well it will do. I thought I'd share an interesting fact about some fair food I investigated yesterday.
Crawfish etoufee (1 serving)= 435 calories
Red beans, rice, and sausage (1 serving)= 2,691 calories!!!!!!!!!!!! Can you believe that????? I was in shock. I have eaten this sometimes at the fair in past years and my jaw hit the floor when I saw these numbers. I was trying to decide if I wanted to eat etoufee or this and obviously I went for the the fairer food! haha WOW! Oh and btw I am like huh on the whole fried butter thing ya'll commented about. That's crazy!!! Wow. That's definitely a heart attack packed in batter! But knowing me I would try it once and love it and then strokeville here I come. Also chocolate bacon does sound yum. I could see how the sweet, fat, and salt would be lovely together! Oh my gosh!
Anyway so after all of this last night I got home and around 10:30pm I felt like I was starving. (I ate all the afore mentioned food at 5:30pm) It had been five hours since dinnner so I wanted at least a little snack. I don't usually go to bed until 12 or 1am so I have time to digest anyway. I need to go grocery shopping so there was not very many choices for a snack unless I wanted to eat corn in a can so I decided I would just bake a Digiorno stuffed crust pizza and eat a tiny slice and give the hubby the leftovers for his lunch today. Well I tried that tiny slice and it was soooo damn delicious I devoured the other half of that slice and ended up eating 2 slices of pizza (330 calories a slice!!!) YEAH! I went over my calorie target by like 600 calories and needless to say I paid for it this morning on the scale when I managed to gain 2.2lbs overnight!!!!!! DAMN IT! Aww well back on the boat today and doing well.
Breakfast: Hot green tea, french vanilla powder, 1 splenda. Pineapple greek yogurt and slivered almonds.
Lunch: grilled chicken and 2 grilled garlic shrimp and about 1/2 cup of steamed garden veggies (squash, zucchini, plum tomatoes, and carrotts)
Snack: Atkins protein shake (chocolate)
Dinner: Not sure yet. Going grocery shopping and will figure it out then but whatever it is will be good!!!!
