Yesterday my friend Caitlin sent me this fun list (with pictures!) of what 200 calories of various foods looks like. Some of these were foods you’d eat in their pictured context. Others…not so much. Here are a few examples:
Werther’s Originals Candies
Kiwis (this actually looks really good—why don’t I eat kiwi more often?):
Mini-Peppers (too cute):
Some of my real-life favorite 200-calorie snacks of late:
Yogurt with berries & cereal
I also ate bone marrow on toast a few nights ago, in the context of a dinner-hour whiskey tasting. Even the small amount I had was probably more than 200 calories, but it was…interesting. I can’t say I’d try it again, but I also can’t say I wouldn’t. The flavor was fantastic, but the texture…the whole experience felt really primal and strange. Some primal & strange can be very good (wink, wink), but bone marrow on toast—jury’s still out for me.
What are some of your favorite 200-calorie snacks? Have you ever eaten bone marrow?
