Well, it looks like roughly 1800-1900 calories, but for your goals I think its fine.

Its all very healthy food, and its great that you are eating meals and snacks throughout the day. You are NOT eating too much food!

As I have mentioned before, you might want to consider adding a bit more protein to your diet for balance. Add some meat, an egg, tuna, cottage cheese, hard cheese, or even some soy chips (great source of protein).

Yes! Soy Chips have TONS of protein. Actually a much better snack compared to most snack bars or popcorn. I am looking at the label now - These are Genisoy Soy Crisps - cheddar cheese - they contain soy flour and rice - but no wheat - can you eat them? If you eat the whole 3.5 oz bag (as I often do) it serves as a meal, with 350 calories, 25 grams of protein, 49 grams of carbs, and 7 grams of fat. (27% protein, 55% carb, 18% fat)

They are a little high in sodium, but not too terrible, and I don't limit my sodium right now, because I drink so much water :)

SammyT - you are trying to gain weight, correct? It's really great that you have such a great attitude about it. You are eating really healthy things and it's a good idea to be snacking. I agree with JD, though - you should add a little more protein. I've tried those soy crisps and they are really really tasty! If you're feeling like a "carby" snack, but want to squeeze in some protein, they are an excellent choice!
