  • Fat Pudding

    So I was craving something smooth and creamy for breakfast. I had some avocados that needed to be used. Threw 2 in the ninja with some almond butter, mojomilk (it's like a probiotic healthy nesquik powder), and coconut milk. It tasted pretty good! Poured into bowl and decided to add chia. I'd like to think it has some nutritional value to it.

    1300 cals, 122g natural fat, 27g protein, 46g fiber, 63 carb (17 net, yay!)

    did I make a good choice?

    To me, the calorie-to-nutrient ratio seems a bit high....1300 calories is a lot to spend on just 5 fairly monolithic ingredients. But if you're feeling good and reaching your goals, not sure why you care what I or anyone else thinks.

      Mmm, this reminds me to make an avocado smoothie for breakfast if I'm not too terribly hungry. Avocado, yogurt or kerif, berries, blender. Oh, yeah, I'll try making it with coconut milk instead. thanks!

        Trying to make good choices so I can reach those goals.

          1300 calories is my entire caloric intake for one day, if I'm not exercising... That's just me though. I love avocados for a fat source but I would have a tough time trying to justify eating a whole 1300 calories worth of something...

            Trying to eat closer to my BMR, and going to try to make it to gym later.

              I guess then it would depend on what else you're eating today

                A bowl of butternut squash soup for dinner (recipe from Everyday Paleo). That's all I have planned for today. Hoping breakfast will carry me through for the next 7 hours

                  What's your total protein for the day? I don't think butternut squash has much, so it feels like your total protein could be low...isn't it supposed to be just under 1g per pound of lean body mass?

                    Yeah, it's super low today, but the rest of the week I normally eat pretty high protein (figured it won't hurt to have 1 day low when the rest are high). Was contemplating mixing some hemp protein into my bowl of soup to help supplement.

                    just added up my protein for the last week, it averaged 116g/day

                      I wouldn't worry about not getting enough of any one macro (or micro) nutrient for the day. Your body stores excess nutrients for future deficiencies in diet.

                      I find the RDA (recommended daily allowance) concept to be a bit nutty overall - Grok never had to make sure he ate a little bit of this and that to ensure adequate health. He ate meat one day if he could get it and berries the next if he found some.

                      Enjoy guilt free and eat what you crave tomorrow (probably meat!).
