I want to make sure that what I'm planning is the right way to add in non-NS foods. I'm just a little baby newbie!.

I have a can of Hormel Chili w/Beans and here are the stats for one serving (1/2 the can):.

Calories 260.

Total Fat 7.

Sat Fat 3.

Cholesterol 30mg.

Sodium 900 mg.

Total Carbs 33g.

Dietary Fiber 7g.

Sugars 5g.

Protein 16g.

Now my plan is to divide this can in HALF [edit: I realized that the whole can is 2 servings, so I would divide the can into 1/4s] and have it over a salad (like a taco salad)for one thing that is way too much sodium for me for one meal! Is this OK as a LUNCH substitute?.

Thanks for your help!..

Argh, Birdie you are right!! Whoa! Thanks for catching that!! And, yes, that's not a lot of food...but maybe I could stretch it with 1/2 can of unsalted tomatoes and add in more beans or something...the chili flavoring is already there and I could just add to it...

If you have a Big Lots near you, check them out. I got some Nutrisystem Vegetarian Chili yesterday and see it a lot at various stores I visit. For a serving it is 210 calories, 1.5 gr fat, 19 gr protein...

Comment #2

The vegetarian or meat chili is good over a salad. If used for a lunch, skip the lunch protein or have a lunch entree for dinner and add a protein to one of them...

Comment #3

Yes, I really like the Nutrisystem chili! It's just that I found this chili on sale for $.69 a can and I didn't want to pass up a good deal. And I love chili over a salad!.

Thanks guys!..

Comment #4

Couldnt that serving be a lunch entree without adding protein? like it would be a dinner - sodium is high but once in a while probably OK - drink extra water?..

Comment #5

That would be 130 cals, 3.5 fat, 16 carbs, 3.5 fiber, and 8 protein. That would be OK for a lunch serving, wouldn't it? (although very small!)..

Comment #6

You could turn it into a gaint bowl of chili soup by adding a bottle of passata or some other unsalted tomato product...

Comment #7

These are the average stats for a lunch entree.

Lunches: 176 calories, 3.2 g fat, 27 g carb, 8.2 g protein, 493 mg sodium.

You'd be a little low on carbs and calories. I'd do as GypsyFe said and eat the serving size and count it as a lunch entree and dairy/protein serving. You could still bulk it up with tomatoes or something...

Comment #8

Thanks, guys! Yes, I was thinking about adding some unsalted canned tomatoes and maybe some peppers/onions and more spices, and making a nice bowl of chili without all that sodium! That and a salad would be a good lunch!..
