I am advantaged in this diet thing in that I a) work from home and b) don't mind eating the same thing over and over and over and over and over and over [...] and over. Campbell's Chunky Chicken Corn Chowder, one can, 387 calories. A couple tablespoons of chicken bouillon powder, for that extra chickeny goodness, 43 calories. And it's pretty filling. If I want more, and I usually do, I can add into it a can of corn, 225 calories. All together, 655, which I can eat three times a day and still have a good margin on my daily budget. I have, in fact, been eating it twice a day for over a week now, and less frequently before I started doing it intentionally. Generally breakfast and lunch, then something else for dinner, since I usually eat that with loree. However, I do worry about getting bored with it. So, sometimes I skip the extra corn and have something else. I ordered a case of rice cakes from Amazon Fresh. They're relatively cheap in terms of calories, and moderately bulky. Yesterday for lunch I had a bowl of the soup and a package of the rice cakes (half a bag, 7 cakes), and it comes out nearly the same as the extra-corn version (slightly higher, 675). However, these are the 'lightly salted' brown-rice whole grain cakes. Meaning they're INCREDIBLY BLAND. Corn cakes are, I've realized, so much better (those're what I usually get), but they're higher calorie. They're also only salted on one side, apparently, so if I don't turn it right side up, it's even MORE bland. However, with today's breakfast, I have found a solution: Dip them in the soup. I hate to say it, but OMG is that good.
