Brownie and Brownie Sundae-Snacks
To start off the day we will have a Peanut Butter Granola Bar. This has high carbs(25g), low fat(5g), and low protein(6g). This is a good choice because the bar will give you lots of energy throughout the day.
For the afternoon, we chose a hamburger. This is high in carbs(28g), low in fat(8g), and decent in protein(14g). This is a good choice because the proteins will give you strong bones and the carbs will give you more energy.
To end the day, we decided to have mac and cheese. This is high in carbs(34g), low in fats(7g), and high in proteins(120g). This is a good choice because the proteins with help build your tissues, skin, and healthy blood.
For a snack we went for a fudge brownie, and a chocolate brownie sundae. The fudge brownie is high in carbs(25g), low in fats(6g), and low in proteins(5g). The chocolate brownie sundae is high in carbs(25g), low in fats(2.5g), and low in proteins(4g). These both are a good choice in moderation, and you will gain energy because of the high carbs.
Organic molecules make up a big part of your diet, and they are found in all the foods you eat. A number of organic molecules are required in your diet to keep your cells and tissues healthy. Carbohydrates is one of them, and our dinner that we chose is big this. Carbohydrates serve as a source of energy for your cells upon consumption, your body metabolizes carbohydrates into glycogen and glucose, which provide energy to keep your body running. Another organic molecule you must consume in your diets are fats(lipids). Fats are usually viewed as a bad thing but you need them to maintain a healthy diet, our lunch provides lots of fats. Proteins are made up of chains of organic molecules, called amino acids. We have lots of protein in our dinner. All in all, this diet can be described as a plan for someone who needs to watch their weight and wants to eat healthy, but doesn't want to completely give up all of their favorite junk foods.
