Today’s food

May 23, 2008

I had a weird day yesterday – got a stomach bug or ate something that was off (don’t know which) and got sick after 4 bites of lunch (in the restaurant bathroom) and ate very little for the rest of the day (had bread and butter at dinner, and some apple).

Today I’m feeling better but no strong appetite either – I am almost never sick to my stomach and hate throwing up, so I’m quite keen to avoid going back to that…

Since I don’t have a clever idea for a post today, I thought I’d just list what I ate :

Breakfast : at home

  • Special K red berries cereal w milk
  • 1/2 cup of kiwi smoothie (wasn’t good, I threw it out…)
  • Tea w milk (x2)

Lunch : restaurant w colleagues

  • Salad w open-faced curry chicken sandwich. Salad was mainly lettuce, a few slices of tomatoes, a bit of dressing (not much), a tablespoon or two of corn. Sandwich was on pain de campagne drizzled w olive oil, chicken curry stuff was made w mayo or cream – but there wasn’t much of it (3 oz max).

Snack : home – raided the fridge veggie leftovers…

  • roasted curried cauliflower – about 2 cups of it
  • roasted beets – less than 1 cup

Dinner : at home – instead of a “real” dinner we raided the fridge of leftovers and cheese…

  • Piece of French bread w goat cheese
  • 2/3 cup of leftover veal paprikash
  • loads of raw veggies – cherry tomatoes, radish, celery
  • yogurt curry dip
  • 2/3 of a strawberry tart. My DH came home w three desserts from a local bakery and wanted to share them all (this is a frequent pattern). I asked if I could have the strawberry one. This was a bit of a stress point for him, but I gave him 1/3 that way he got to taste it too, and I didn’t eat nearly as much as I would have otherwise (a dessert and a half…).

Total fruit and veg count for the day : 11
