I ate three bananas in one day... probably not the best idea. However, bananas are a power food, and I was actually hungry each time I ate a banana. Still, it's best to eat more of a variety of fruits and vegetables, and bananas are not low in calories, even if they are zero PointsPlus, so it's something that I should probably not do every day. Also, I was not hungry at 9, but just wanted to eat. So I had a small bowl of shredded wheat with some soy milk. Power Foods? Yes. But it's not good to eat just for the sake of eating. I was satisfied before that snack, and didn't need it.
breakfast- oatmeal with soy milk and peaches
lunch- boca burgers, green beans, salad, evoo
dinner- brown rice, black beans, steamed veggies, evoo
snacks (only if hungry!)- Green Monster smoothie, fruit, veggies, Lara Bar
exercise- cardio for 6 AP (probably on the bike)
