4/19/11 lunch

Lunch today is abowl of fresh fruit paired with some Greek yogurt packed with 16 grams of protein, to help hold me over until dinner… or maybe just until an afternoon snack. This lunch comes in around 450 calories.

About notyouraveragefoodie

Not your average foodie, indeed. I have a Masters Degree in Dietetics and am currently employed as a Registered Dietitian at a nationally renown clinic. I created this blog to entertain and inform foodies everywhere. I am a busy, working woman battling the same food issues most people struggle with every day. Possessing the knowledge about food is the easy part. Putting it into practice... that’s where it gets tricky. I consider myself obsessed with food –– how it looks, how it smells, how it tastes, even how it makes me feel. My hope is to provide recipes, tips & tricks each day, to help foodies everywhere eat like a dietitian. I will be sharing my tips & tricks in the kitchen, providing delicious recipes, and helping foodies everywhere navigate through the supermarket, eating out, preparing foods at home, and surviving tricky eating situations whenever they arise.

  1. HI! Found your blog via Self’s Eat Like Me, and I love it!
    Just a quick Question on this one…how does this lunch equal 450 cals?! I know that yogurt can’t be anywhere near that…right?

  2. Welcome to my blog! I’m so glad you like it! Thanks for inquiring. The yogurt is 140 calories, and this bowl of fruit is actually 4 cups of fresh mixed fruit. The nutrition information for a fruit cup differs depending on the type of fruit used. Using the seasonal fruit list and combining only three types of fruit in the cup, you can expect winter fruit cups will be around 200 calories.
