I love the daily food threads! I am a very beginner cook and like to get ideas about what other people were eating. Can we mention workouts too?
Here is what I ate today. Felt a little off this morning due to taking some pretty strong allergy meds, but it's settled down now, and I had a good dinner.
Breakfast: Home-made smoothie and raisins
Snack: Snack-size Blueberry Applesauce
Lunch: Broccoli burger, clementine, rice crackers
Snack: Cup of miso soup
Dinner: Triscuit and warm dip (consisting of shredded carrots and parsnips, veggie ground round, tomato soup and a few other things)
All in all, not bad for a sick day
One thing I should mention to put my posts in context, I do have some food allergies that I need to be mindful of. The big two are a corn allergy (hence, the triscuit instead of chips, and the need to make everything myself and not buy prepared versions) and a nut allergy---I have never reacted to a nut itself, but I have something called oral allergy syndrome, which is a cross-reaction to tree fruits in people with tree nut allergy. Some fruits like berries and grapes I can have raw, but many fruits (peaches, plums etc.) I can only have in cooked or processed form (it kills the proteins). I am anaphylactic to raw apples and won't go near them. So, it can be hard for me to get in as many fruits sometimes. It is sad because I love them, but the one time I reacted to apples (after eating them without incident my whole life) was REALLY scary, so I have not chanced it again. So anyway, I say this only to put my posts in context and explain why I eat so much applesauce and canned fruit compared to what some of you might eat
