Long Run, Late Dinner

Posted May 28 2008 6:02pm 3 Comments
I just finished eating dinner about 10 minutes ago. I went on a long-ish run (6.5 miles) this evening, stretched, did some abs, showered, got dressed, threw together dinner, and finally sat down to eat at just about 8:00. Of course, I was famished!

Dinner this evening was leftover pizza and a side salad made with lettuce, tomatoes, red onion, and sprouts, and dressed with the most amazing cabernet vinegar. (I'm still obsessed with this stuff!)

I chugged a huge glass of water when I got home from my run, but by the time I was ready for dinner, I wanted something besides water to drink. Instead, I made myself a pomegranate-lemonade with a slice of lime. So yum!!! I have a feeling this is going to be the drink of the summer for me!

Pizza, salad, and pomegranate-lemonade from above...

For dessert, I had 2 pizzelles, one with a tsp of peanut butter spread on top.

I was super busy at work today, so I never had a chance to post lunch. Sorry! Quick recap...

Lunch was a ham and Buffalo sauce sandwich (again). I also had some broccoli florets with roasted red pepper hummus. I ate these while at an informal meeting right before lunch, so I never thought to snap a photo. I probably ate about a cup of broccoli and a few tablespoons of hummus.

After lunch, I ate a piece of leftover chocolate cake from yesterday's retirement party. I put my piece in a small cup, which is why this photo looks so strange. The cake was just as delicious as it was yesterday!

And finally, my afternoon snack was a container of Brown Cow maple-flavored yogurt with 1/2 cup of Kashi Go Lean cereal mixed in. It was my first time trying this flavor of Brown Cow yogurt, and I LOVE it!! It was creamy, sweet, and "natural" tasting. I hate when yogurt tastes "fake" and "chemically." I highly recommend this brand and flavor of yogurt!

I love your photography, you're making me hungry! If only I could stop at one little slice of pizza! I did, however, stop at one small pulled pork sandwich for dinner. So that's why I'm hungry.... bananas and yogurt in my evening plans! Thanks for the gorgeous inspiration!

What effect does it have on ones metabolism or weight gain to eat dinner so late? Is it a disadvantage to go to sleep with undigested food in your stomach?
From what I've read and my own experience, I don't think eating a late dinner effects weight gain/weight loss. The total number of calories that you consume throughout the day is important. I try to stick to my daily calorie allowance, and regardless of the time of day, I try to consume that same range of calories.
