Food journal for Tuesday, December 9th

December 9, 2008

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!


  • Oatmeal – new recipe – 1/2 cup oats, 1/2 cup milk, 3/4 cup water and 1/3 banana.  Nothing else added.  Delicious and really rich.
  • Green tea

Lunch :

  • Homemade mushroom-tomato soup (made using the tomato-mushroom-feta mixture from last night).  Delicious!
  • Carrots w shallot/blue cheese dip

Evening (around 6:30) :

  • Pineapple
  • More veggies w dip
  • 1 ginger muffin (why? I don’t even like these.  I had it when I realized lasagna was not to be tonight)
  • Roasted cauliflower – which was gross instead of delicious like usual.  Why? Because I found a different recipe that I tried which used saffron and sounded exotic.  I don’t like saffron and never have, and this sealed the deal for me.  Yuck.  I will let my DH try it but otherwise it is headed for the trash.
  • 2 clementines

Later evening (around 9:00)

  • 3 Michel Chaudun paves (ok, I confess to having 3 yesterday too without writing them down – see pick below if you dare)
  • … also realized that I am more stressed than I want to admit, and that I am not making the lasagna tonight, as the box of noodles I thought we had seems MIA and I’m not heading out in the cold just for that
  • Cocoa nibs – more on this in another post

Cooking plans for the day :

  • Prepare chicken, spinach & mushroom lasagna – NOT DONE
  • Cut up carrots and celery for snacks – DONE (also did a black radish which I’d never tried before)
  • Make Moroccan carrots or roasted root veggies – NOT DONE
  • UNPLANNED : Tomato-mushroom-feta soup — wow this was sooooo good.  I used just 2 oz of feta but it gives so much flavor.

How did I do?

  • Renoncement (leaving something leftover) : I didn’t scrape the bowl of oatmeal, does that count? Stopped w the soup after a bowl and a half instead of 2 bowls.  Other foods under control.
  • Fruit & veggie count : 10
  • Water : 6
  • Herbal tea : tons

Here’s a pic of the chocolate… small but oh-so-decadent
