Pasta Based Meals

Day two of intense accountability went well!

Since I know that I have to write out everything that I have consumed in a day, I have been more aware of what I'm eating. It makes me want to eat better things and stay within my calorie range (1200-1550). Mind you, I haven't given up my treats (see snacks sections, below); I've just managed to fit them in my calorie range for the day.

I'm a big fan of moderation, not deprivation. A life without treats just wouldn't be right.

Friday, January 24th:

Breakfast: 1 cup spinach, 1/2 scoop vanilla whey protein powder, 1 tbsp peanut butter
Lunch: 2 slices light white bread, 2 oz. turkey, 1 tbsp. homemade honey mustard, two pickles
Snack: 1 oz. spicy sweet chili doritos, 1 clementine, 1 colby jack cheese stick
Dinner: 1 cup lettuce, 1 tbsp. homemade ranch, 2 oz. fettuccine, 1/4 cup bertolli alfredo sauce, 1/4 cup spinach, 1 serving steamfresh peas, 4 oz. chicken
Snack: 4 double stuffed keebler cookies

Workout: none

Calories in: 1,504
Calories out: 0

We had a special dinner last night. What made it special was that I don't typically make pasta based meals, but lately I have been craving fettuccine alfredo.

I added chicken, peas and spinach to the mix. It turned out well, and it was nice to have the extra serving of vegetables thrown in there.

What's your favorite pasta based meal? 
How often to you eat pasta based meals?
