4/19/11 dinner

This dinner of meatloaf (with ketchup), steamed broccoli, steamed spinach, a large baked sweet potato, and a few steamed babby carrots (left over from the night before)  came in at around 700 calories.

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. hey, I’m liking your blog, but I’m confused by the amount of calories in some things… such as this dinner, it looks like quite a small dinner and is mainly veg, how is it 700 cal?

    • Excellent question. Thanks for asking! Meatloaf is a very calorically dense dish. Pictured is about 4-5 ounces of meatloaf which is about 250-300 calories. Next to that is a large sweet potato which is 200-250 calories depending on the actual weight (I didn’t use the scale for this potato). There is about 50 calories of ketchup, 75 calories of broccoli, 25 calories of carrots, and 25 calories worth of spinach. Roughly totaling 675 calories.
