I started counting calories today. By the time I'd finished supper, I had a total of about 900, maybe a little less, including the creamer in my coffee, and a one ounce bittersweet baking chocolate treat. Today is a "no meat" day, I do that about two or three days a week, so that makes it easier to count.
Then Daughter brought over an ear of sweet corn (fresh, boiled, no salt or butter). I love her corn. She always does them just right, sweet and tender.
I ate it. Then I tried to find out how many calories to add to the total.
Some websites say 59 for a "small ear". Some say 59 for a "regular ear". Other sites say 135. All the others are somewhere between. 89 seems to be popular. Very few get into specifics like weight. All I can say about this ear is that it was 7" long and had about 17 rows of kernels.
Maddening! Whose numbers do I believe? Whatever. I think no matter what number I use I'll probably still be below the target 1100 for the day.
It's a sad truth that if I stick to canned and packaged foods, it's easier to count calories. Something wrong with that.
