7am - Protein powder (whey and pea), ice, 6oz 1% milk, 1/2 cup of blueberries, strawberries or raspberries all blended together.

On weekends we have brunch, hubby cooks on Saturday and I cook every Sunday. It could be anything from pancakes to omelets.
We eat out for dinner every Saturday and Sunday evening and may have alcohol with the meals. We like hibachi grills, sushi, Vietnamese, Italian, Tex-Mex, etc so quite a lot of variety then.
Is it healthy to eat in this manner where weekends are so much different with calorie intake? During the week it's around 1500 calories but on weekends it's probably 2500+ with so much more salt, fat, empty alcohol calories.
I must admit I look forward to weekends b/c I feel I've eaten what I consider healthy all week and the weekends are the reward.
Any tips or suggestions? Thanks for reading.
