 This is what I had for breakfast today. It sounds crazy but it's what I wanted to eat and that's that! I had a cup of green tea afterward.
1. Scramble eggs with green onions
2. Mixed berry Activia with fresh strawberry
3. Chocolate banana cake - I baked it last night. Taste yummy and for this size, it only has about 70 calorie. I don't ate cake often and this is somewhat a treat for being such a good girl I am! ;) I just don't want the over-ripe bananas go to waste, that's why I decided to bake them.

According to my weight, height, age, and activities, I am allowed to consume 2200 calories a day. Sometimes I go over that, but most of the time I'm under the limit.

Have fun and God bless everyone!

  6. Very informative. I didin't now about these foods. I am only eating about 1200 calories, trying to lose the few pounds I've gained this winter. After losing 50 pounds a few years ago and maintaining for 3 years, I have to catch it at a few pounds.
    Nice to "meet" you.
