So, I’ve started all this talk about nutrition. Maybe that means I better fess up about what I eat. So here’s what I ate yesterday, a pretty representative day, all in all.
Dinner: Red lentil and spinach soup with a dollop of plain whole milk yogurt, cafe Americano with steamed raw whole milk. (Note: This recipe, from my brand-spanking-new-delivered-by-UPS copy of Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution, saved my bacon. I’ve been a bit of a meal planning slacker the last week, which does not excuse me from my commitment to put healthy meals on the table. This recipe was super fast…I’ll post my adaptation of it later in the week.)
Dessert: Fresh strawberries with plain whole milk yogurt.
In case anyone is wondering, no I do not have calorie counts for what I ate. I ate enough so I was no longer hungry, but was never full. I ate a ton of fruits and veggies, and the most processed food I ate was the slice of toast with breakfast. My pants are fitting fine, and I’m getting enough exercise, so I’m not currently counting calories. That said, I do employ food journals and calorie counting from time to time, when I feel they are warranted. They are valuable tools, but I’ve reached a point where I don’t need to have them in heavy rotation.
