Healthy Lunch Idea! What I ate today March 7, 2011

Nom Nom Nom....

Today for lunch I am having a whole wheat bagel topped off with plain, low-fat cream cheese, sliced cucumbers and a sprinkle of black pepper. For my afternoon snack, which I will probably eat around 3:00 pm, will be homemade roasted red pepper and green olive hummus with stone-wheat crackers. YUM! 

I analyzed these two recipes using the recipe analyzer on the Dietitians of Canada website and found the following:

~450 calories
75 grams of carbohydrates
10 grams of fiber (yay!)
16 grams of fat (this may be skewed because I made my own hummus with no a lot of olive oil)
20 grams of protein
939 milligrams of sodium (again because EaTracker only has a 'generic hummus' option)

It took me 5 Minutes to make this lunch this morning! 

Hope you enjoy!
