Eating too much?

I feel like I am eating too much, but I am really bad at gauging it myself. I wrote what I ate a few days ago and no one gave me any feedback so I'm going to write what I ate today (so far). Please let me know what you think:

Breakfast:
Few handfuls cereal
luna bar
grande nonfat latte

Lunch:
1 cup lowfat split pea soup
small salad with chicken, peas, shredded carrots, 2 egg whites, corn, beets, olives, and balsamic vinegar
Apple

Snack: <-----was really craving chocolate/sweets
3 hershey kisses
6 peanut butter filled pretzels
strawberries
some dried fruit and some almonds

Dinner is up in the air! What do you think?

2 small or 1 large onion
2 carrots
3 cloves of garlic
1 stick of celery
1 chipolte pepper (or jalepano or whichever you like)
2 cup cooked lentils (1 cup when dry)
˝ tsp cumin
˝ tsp coriander
1 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp soy sauce
breadcrumbs
egg

1.Put lentils in bowl with lots of water (used 1 cup lentil:2 cups water), bring to boil and then simmer for roughly 20-25 mins. Drain well
2.Chop first 5 ingredients and sauté for about 10 minutes in a little oil. They should be translucent and soft. Add mixture to processor and blend well
3.Add blended mixture to lentils and add remainder of the ingredients and mix well. The lentils should be soft so you can mash them with a fork.
4.At this point you can either just make the patties or add egg and maybe 1/2 or so cup of breadcrumbs - just until they start to get drier (if you add more, you'll dilute the taste). Form patties dust with a little flour and cook in a little oil until brown and hot.
6.Serve a couple of the burgers on bed of baby spinach and sprinkle some chopped tomatoes on top.

Note: They're not like regular burger in that they stick together well, they're more 'fragile'!! But, you can totally make a ball and squish it with a spatula and it won't break apart. Also, I'm not even sure if the egg helps. I don't normally add one but today I did and it didn't seem to help bind them ann better than usual.

Re: Eating too much?

Wow Veggie Girl That sounds wonderful! I just printed that and I am gonna make them this weekend. I think they will be good for my lunches. I am always looking for something different to take to work.

Thanks,
Starr

Re: Eating too much?

That sounds really great! I'm going to write down the recipe, but chances are I won't make them any time soon - I'm too lazy these days!

All of you who posted what you ate after me were extremely healthy and light eaters. I try and listen to what my body craves and feed it that, but is that being too lenient? Today, for example, I am craving frozen yogurt with Reeses Peanut Butter cups....so I ate a big breakfast and am going to get that for lunch! Should I be ignoring this craving and eating a turkey sandwich or something for lunch, or is it alright to give in!?!?

Cravings are you blood sugar levels plummeting and you've probably always responded - as many of us do - by eating sugary stuff. But a turkey sandwich will more than suffice in restoring your blood sugar levels so listen to the cravings but give your body what it needs - slow releasing sugars that you'll find in a meal.

Have treats sometimes is fine, but always acquiescing to the sugar urges with sugar treats will just continue the cycle of 'crave sugar, eat sugar'
