Vegetables have hardly any calories, and even butter or olive oil has a certain amount, not exuberant unless you use a pound like my dutch friend's mother cooked her meat in.
Those veggies didn't all look fried so that was not the calories they gave.
Also the trucker eating all that fast food, I'm well aware that mcdonalds pads up their hamburgers to make them over 1000 calories, but a homemade one isn't
I suppose there is a chance they made a mistake, but if you will note, besides the veggies there is a fried kind of bread (I believe it is patacones fried plantain) and 2 plates of some kind of grain. She also has a bowl of some brown sauce (probably dipping sauce for the plantains) or possibly (Repe is a creamy soup made with green bananas or green plantains, onions, garlic, milk, cheese and cilantro).They generally marinade their vegetables in oil. Something that looks like tea but is very possibly
(Canelazo is consumed in the northern highlands of Peru, specifically around Ayabaca in Piura. It consists of aguardiente with sugar (or chancaca) and cinnamon boiled in water; lemon and chicha de jora may also be added...aguardientes are strongly alcoholic beverages
The fried stuff is possibly a popular food there called Llapingachos (Potato Cakes Stuffed With Cheese)
They cook with Palm oil Amount Per 1 tbsp (13.6 g)
As we all know fried foods absorb a lot of oil.
Plantains common food
Repe soup common food
