Milk Chocolate Crunchies… about 120 calories (estimate).
Good, but annoying to eat at work. Would be perfect for movie night!
Jerk Chicken with Mango Chutney… very good, very filling. I didn’t realize how hungry I was from breakfast until I started eating this.
I can’t remember the last time I had okra… and this came with a side of tomato okra stew. Very good – left me wanting more. 330 calories. (Btw, the pancakes this morning were 390!).
Having two cups of water… and then will try to postpone my snack until 2:30.
Ok, I decided to reorder BistroMD. I called and placed myself on re-occurring status.
That being said, I also learned that every person I refer will get a $50 credit if they say they were referred by me, and I will get a $50 credit for my order the week following.
So, if any of these posts has piqued your interest, and made you decide that you want to have BistroMD delivered – consider this my referral. We both benefit and hopefully will keep on losing weight together.
Send me a message at sonyasfoodblog <AT> gmail.com, as you will need to have my name to be referred.
Tonight’s meal – Chicken Breast Stuffed with Brown & Wild Rice.
I forgot what dinner was going to be earlier and as my husband called out what was in the fridge, I said something like “gee, that sounds bland.” However, the packaging describes this dish as: “Grilled and oven-roasted chicken breast stuffed with brown and wild rice, served with baby peas and shoestring carrots. ratatouille and roasted-chicken demi-glace.”
So, my interest is now piqued a bit more. This dinner has to compare with what my husband is having as this is the first night he is cooking a warm meal for himself and not warming something else up in the microwave.
I think it will, just because insert processed cheez name here is in the title. I’m not a fan of processed cheese in any fashion, and hopefully won’t be tempted tonight.
I didn’t have my morning snacks today because I was up later than expected. The chicken dish has 330 calories, but 760mg of sodium. This is the highest sodium content I’ve seen in a BistroMD meal so far. Others have been as low as 80mg. Also for dinner, instead of a fruit, I’m adding 1/2 of a sweet potato to the meal, bringing the total calories to 465. I will bypass the butter, but considering adding a bit of cinnamon.
Well, I didn’t end up eating the sweet potato as it ended up on the floor. I guess that’s a sign. The meal itself was very filling, the stuffing very slightly hinted of garlic. The chicken had grill lines, and actually tasted grilled. It had a great texture. No gristle or anything else you wouldn’t want to find in a prepared meal. Another excellent dinner.
Turkey Salisbury Steak with French Cut Green Beans & Cauliflower puree.
Overall, a good but awkward meal. I followed the heating instructions (3 minutes if defrosted)- which worked for the veggies. Took a bite of the “steak” and it was still cool. I cut it in half, warmed the meal for another minute. It felt fine, but immediately cooled down once I took my seat.
I didn’t want to reheat the entire meal again since the veggies were perfectly cooked and would have dried to nothingness.I ended up eating the veggies, then reheating the “steak” another minute.
I actually find it hard to believe that it was only 240 calories, and as filling as it was.
A little frustrating to cook, but I’d eat it again. This might work better as a turkey meatballs concept so reheating is more even…
Beef Bourguignon with cauliflower puree – this was probably the best meal I have had since starting the program. 340 calories. The quality of the beef was very good, the small onions were sweet. The cauliflower puree was excellent, though I wish there had been a little bit more of it.
Very satisfying. I also added my second fruit of the day to the meal, which will help keep me satisfied I think. Now just to get through the evening with no more snacks…

Crunch O’s – 12 grams of protein. 130 Calories.
They are very light, very barbecque- y. They could definitely fill a chips craving. The back of the package also notes there is a Sour Cream & Onion Flavor. Sort of an odd aftertaste after eating about a quarter of the bag, and then tend to stick to my teeth.
Still good though – exceptionally crunchy, and leaves the taste buds with a small “burn”. It took me about 30 minutes to finish it. A similar bag of chips would have taken me 5 minutes.
Btw, they look giant, but are about the size of Cheerios on steroids.
After dinner snacks – 4oz Oikos Original Greek Yogurt Chocolate and a small snack cup of pears in their own juice.
Daily totals from MyFitnessPal.com. The protein total is a bit lower than I’d like, but only by 10 or so grams.

So, even though my intention was to stay firmly the plan today, I noticed I was still hungry after lunch and snacks. I knew the plan is for about 1200 calories, and other nutritionists I’ve worked with have estimated my food should be between 1800-2300 calories based on my weight.
I haven’t lost at those levels, but didn’t want to stress out about hunger. So, after talking with the Bistro MD nutritionist, I am now adding 1 additional protein snack plus 2 servings of fruit per day.
For my afternoon snack – I had one reduced fat string cheese and an apple. Right at the 150 calorie mark! (Yes, no pics for this one. Sorry! :)).
