    I love collards. I just cooked some the other day with a little red pepper flake and a touch of olive oil. It was the first time I cooked them in a skillet instead of a pot and they were excellent. Just told hubby this morning I was gonna go out and pick me some more. emoticon Wish I could get my guys to like them also but alas they don't. Good news is there is less to clean that way.

    I just found out on a SP video that boiling broccoli loses much of its folic acid while steaming retains it - have to adjust my cooking method!

    Aw, I'm sorry the day didn't go well for you. Though I admit, the fact that you controlled your chip eating to that amount really amazes me!

WARNING: It was a high-calorie day and I DON'T feel guilty about it. LOL

BREAKFAST (7:40 a.m.)

2 scrambled eggs; turkey smoked sausage; 2 slices of toast (one with Smart Balance Light buttery spread...the other with raspberry Polaner All Fruit); .5 cup blueberries; and 12 oz. milk

It's Sunday, so I knew I needed a good breakfast to sustain me throughout the day; BUT, if I had known that I was going to be going out to dinner, I would have kept breakfast a little lighter. Oh well....

DINNER (3:45 p.m.)

My mom took me and my family to TGIF's (the WORST restaurant if you're watching calories.) BUT, I made a conscious choice to have this NY Cheddar & Bacon cheeseburger and parmesan steak fries. As I said above, I FEEL NO GUILT. emoticon I haven't had a burger in ages, it seems. It was so juicy and yummy! emoticon

Sorry to anyone who this picture tempts... just sharing what I ate. emoticon

    Looks fine to me. It appears you are learning and even on days when you take in more calories, you are still practicing portion control. In my opinion that is one of the best tool we have once we reach maintenance!

    Doesn't seem bad at all to me. It was a treat. I had a high calorie day yesterday that was a complete abomination. This is light weight compared to that madness. :) Glad you're not upset and enjoyed your Sunday
