Monday's CoM Report aka A Very Dull Post

I was racking my brains trying to work out why this was so low since I felt like I was eating all day yesterday! Certainly was never hungry like last week. And then I remembered I ate a tiny leftover portion of the spinach-tofu bake I'd made at the weekend and cooked in a little ramekin. Didn't count those calories, nor the cals in my soya milk (which I must enter as one of My Foods). And I still don't believe the winter squash (which I am STILL eating!) is as low calorie as CoM says. The calorie information in the database behind CoM quite often conflicts with the information on the package in front of me (blueberries, for example, are higher in cals in CoM - only a little bit, but still).

Anyway. It's more like 1200 for the day, and I ate LOTS.

I am going to supplement with D and calcium just as soon as I can find a supplement that isn't coated in gelatin or costs me calories as a chew. If I could find those Adora tabs over here, I'd go for those (dark chocolate, mmmm), but the ones in the store I've found so far are toffee. Urgh.

Is your winter squash pumpkin-like? Pumpkin is suprising low calorie, and just about all the nutritional information I've seen in different databases agrees - about 26 calories per 100g raw. It does seem low, but since everything agrees, I believe it.

Butternut squash and acorn squash are a little higher - maybe 40 calories per 100g raw, but i'd have to look it up.

try www.nutritiondata.com or www.calorieking.com to confirm that CRON has the right numbers.

It was sweet mama squash. Just so rich and delicious it really was a dessert by itself.

I bought one of those earlier today! I've never had it before. I was looking for pumpkin, which is easy to find here (back in the US) canned, but not fresh. And it was labeled Japanese pumpkin, so I thought I'd try it. I think I'm going to bake it and drizzle flaxseed oil on it. I'm looking forward to trying it!
