Food journal for Monday, December 8th

December 8, 2008

Although I don’t usually do this, I’m going to try to post to the blog my food journal for a few days.

Goals for each day this week:

  • Leave something leftover at each meal
  • Eat at least 7 servings fruit & veg
  • Consistently log my food (either online or on paper)
  • Cook!

Breakfast/lunch :

  • Cocoa bread roll (from great bakery last night) eaten plain, threw away 3 bites
  • Tea
  • Several litchis
  • Apple
  • 3 walnuts

Afternoon :

  • 2 clementines
  • a big pot of herbal tea
  • mushroom cup of soup (yeah, processed, I know…)

Evening

  • 1/2 cup fresh tomato sauce w pancetta, mushrooms & feta and within that half cup there was less than 1/4 cup pasta
  • White meat from a roasted chicken – maybe 3 oz
  • Pineapple
  • Litchis
  • 1/2 ginger muffin

Cooking plans for the day :

  • Apple muffins – DID NOT DO THIS BUT I MADE A QUICK MIX OF GINGER MUFFINS FOR MY DH
  • Roast chicken – DONE
  • Prepare spinach & mushrooms for lasagna – DONE
  • Look up recipes for okra & baby eggplant dishes (Indian) – DONE (looked up- nothing cooked yet)

I also cooked a carmelized onion/blue cheese dip which was da bomb at Thanksgiving.  I have tons of veggies to cut up to eat with it (and I made it with yogurt, so aside from the 4oz of cheese it’s not too bad).  I also made the fresh tomato sauce marked above – I think I’ll freeze it … or maybe stretch it into a soup? We’ll see.

How did I do?

  • Renoncement (leaving something leftover) : okay this morning, not so good later, but then again, I was grazing not really eating, so it’s hard to tell.  I defintely ate to my hunger today, so I’ll call it positive.
  • Fruit & veggie count : 6

Plain water was low, although I had a lot of tea, both herbal & regular
