    What Do the 50+'s Eat for Dinner

    Okay,

    Let's see what we ate for dinner tonight and how much. Now, tell the truth! It's a good check to make sure we are all eating healthy in our (clears throat) later years...

    Tonight's dinner

    grilled steak (2oz)
    baked potato (1/4 of a small potato topped with fresh cheddar cheese and Fat Free Sour Cream)
    acorn squash (1/4 of large)
    salad ( 1/4 cup romain and spinach)

    Buuuuuuuuuurrrrrrrrrrrrrrppppppppppppppp....man that dinner was really good!

    Pasta with a red sauce, salad & one non-alcohol beer. Wanted cheescake, but took a deep breath and pushed it away.

    Spaghetti light on the sauce, with Turkey meatballs (non-fat).
    Special vegtable concoction of wifes= casserole made of spinich, potatoes, squash, some light cheese, and some other stuff, 2 toasted slices of bread (OK- I'll admit White bread).
    Plus a small serving of ice cream, & peaches - then de caff coffee 1 cup max.
    Actually all quite tastety.

    Came in starved from a car trip. Immediately ate bagle. Dinner followed later: tuna salad and mixed veggies green salad wth hot green tea after. Breakfast earlier was mixed grain cereal with peanuts&raisens topped with fresh (uncooked) cranberries.

    Splurge night! Chips and salsa, chicken and shrimp fajitas with rice and guacamole, one margarita, and a strawberry-banana low fat smoothie. No pie.

    Back on "sensible" diet tomorrow.

    Don't worry, I lied. like the rest of the overweight 50+ers. If the rest of these 50+ers are telling the ruth about what they ate, then they left out the part about the double fudge sundae they had for dessert.

    Collard greens and yellow rice with lemonade for dinner. But this doesn't include the snacking in the afternoon after riding 110.9 miles - hummus, crackers, carrots and part of a small pesto pizza. It was HOT (upper 80's to 90 F), windy (15 mph with gusts into the 20's), and I was out there helping a couple of 20-somethings do their first century rides.

    Not a typical dinner, but:

    3 slices of "light" whole wheat bread (120 calories total)
    dipped in "egg beaters" and cooked on teflon skillet with light coating of canola oil
    1 thin piece of "turkey ham" also fried in no oil.
    A bit of honey and some canola oil spread
    1 slice cantaloupe and fresh strawberries
    Water

    half a burger
    8 sea scallops (grilled with olive oil, garlic, and jerk seasoning, Mmmmm.)
    broccoli
    red wine

    So I'm thinking about meal plans when I retire (in 10 years). I want to emphasize breakfast more and dinner less. I've experimented with "snacky" dinners already. And my kids now accept olive oil and fresh bread as a valid dinner option. Hmmmm.

    Honey mustard pretzel bits!

    I was on the homeward leg of a road trip to the in-laws. Had a grilled chicken sandwich with fries for lunch, and a light snack was enough to get home. Breakfast was homemade cinnamon rolls and banana bread (all made with Splenda instead of sugar) with milk and cranberry juice.
