The other one is turning into a "oh wow, I had a salad today", so here is a new one.



As per the old thread:



This thread is to show people eating - actually eating. No bashing yourself, no whining that you had dessert, no complaining that you had a second stick of gum.

If it's a healthy, well-rounded, healthy level of calories day - post here. If it isn't, don't. From this point further, I will report and ask a mod to delete any post that is contrary to that.



This is a place for those of us who eat healthy - and 800 calories is not healthy people - and want to give ideas to each other, not to mention show that vegetarians consume good quality and good quanity of food.

FreshTart: Your hat is adorable!



Exercise: 30 min. upper body weights, 15 min. pilates abs, about 75 jumping jacks



Breakfast: I woke up so late. I grabbed a handful of shredded wheat cereal and half way through the handful realized it contained gelatin. I just had a handful of raisins after that.

Lunch: pineapple, another handful of raisins, about 5 Hershey's kisses, 2 slices apple butter on ww bread

Snack: 10 wheat saltines sandwiched into 5 "sandwiches" with natural peanut butter, banana

Dinner(planned): Amy's vegetable burrito, big salad with almonds in it, toast

Freshtart, I see you need some help with the non-starvation talk. I will oblige, although today certainly has not been the most well-balanced day for me (pretty carb-tastic ;-) )!!!



Bfast: 1/2 bagel with smartbalance light with flax on it and grape jelly, glass of OJ



lunch: huge sandwich loaded with veggies and a little organic cheese; pretzels, water



snack: dark chocolate



dinner: I expect to make a puerto rican dish with red beans, tomato sauce, onions and green peppers and lots of carribeans herbs and spices, poured over rice, served with a healthy field green salad with organic tomatoes, maybe some edamame beans in it with the most AMAZING balsalmic vinegar I've ever tasted (just bought it this week) and with some baked plantains. dessert - some organic raspberry sorbet It will look like this pretty much:

Freshtart, feel better!!! I recommend lentil soup for any illness, it fixes you right up!

I'm home sick today and high on painkillers, so I'm not writing up what I'm eating

For the first time in a long time, I actually ate three meals today, so I'm posting here because I feel good about it.



Exercise- walked to and from school (about 25 minutes round trip) and did the typical running between classes, so about another 10 to 15 minutes (my school is spaced out a lot) of walking in the cold.



Breakfast- Clif bar (something like nuts and chocolate... in a purple label?) and a couple of excedrin. And some green tea.

Lunch- Grape Juice, Milk, soft pretzel, small salad, and some kind of fruit (can't remember what it was now)



Dinner- In an act of stupidity or kindness, I decided to make dinner for everyone. I made chili... Lots of beans, tomatoes, tvp, peppers, salsa, and whatever spices loonked good. Was spicy and very good... I may take the leftovers for lunch tomorrow, and the omni family seemed to think it was pretty good (though they did put ground beef in their chili, but whatever. my meat free stuff was good. really good.)



(possible) snack- some kind of citrus fruit (new shipment came in today (yay!) or a granola bar. Just depends on how hungry I'm feeling.

Go FreshTart! PS: Feel better.



I ate less than usual today, but it's still way more than our ED brigade eats, so I feel pretty safe posting.



Breakfast: *snooze*

Exercise: 30-min walk

Lunch 1: Minimalist quesadilla (2 flour tortillas with the last few shreds of cheese between)

Lunch 2: Bean & rice burrito, cup of tomato-roasted pepper soup

Supper: White chili over rice with little cheese, cherry tomatoes, avocado (plus I ate the other half avocado with a spoon!)



My food issue is that cheese is creeping back into my diet. I did really well with it for the first 6-8 months of being veg, but now I keep decidign I just "must" have that quesadilla, grilled cheese sandwich, or mac& cheese. I need to start experimenting with some of the cheese alternatives.

I think you guys misunderstand me. I'm not sick as in a cold. I'm "sick" because I partied so hard at the union christmas party on Saturday that I pulled three muscles and am currently high as a kite on T3s



Trust me....I feel fine

December 19 (today was weird, because i was out during 'lunch time' and wasn't able to eat when hungry, so i ended up having snacks instead of a decent-sized lunch.):



Middle-Of-the-Night (5:30 AM):

*1 Ensure Plus



-back to sleep -



Breakfast (10:00 AM):

*two slices of bread

*cottage cheese and apple cinnamon jam kit

*1.5 tbsps skippy creamy peanut butter



Snack (12:50 PM):

*aprox 8 fl oz of Naked's orange/pineapple/banana/passionfruit juice smoothie blend

*one lifesaver creamsaver (strawberry cream)



Snack (2:40 PM):

*small golden delicious apple



Snack (6:00 PM):

*1 container of sugarfree peach yogurt

*fat-free whipped cream

*1/2 serving of dried pineapple



Dinner (8:30 PM):

*'king size' corn tortilla (equivilent to one slice of bread)

*3/4 oz monterery jack cheese

*1 bite of 2% sharp cheddar cheese (blah, i hate diet cheese. i love the full fat stuff though..)

*tofurkey deli slices



Dessert (um, right after dinner...9:00 PM):

*two See's Candies (vanilla nut cream, which is vanilla buttercream with walnuts & a chelsea, which is chocolate buttercream with pecans)

as it turns out, i really didn't like either. however, the pecans in the chelsea were good. the vanilla one was kind of bland...and tasteless...but perhaps that's because it's old. i've been hording them for a while, haha.



Before Bed (12:00 AM):

*1 Ensure Plus



Yeah, and the assorted stuff as usual, which today I will not list..because it doesn't really matter.



Anyway, it totals about 1600 of "real food"

and 2300 - 2400 with the ensures included.





(P.S. - if anyone doesn't want me posting in here, just say so and i'll happily move it to the other thread. i just thought that today's intake was acceptable, and i didn't write down stuff like gum, and i didn't scold myself for eating candy.)

No way! You stay right here. You are doing so great, and obviously making a big effort to eat a full day of healthy meals. As far as I'm concerned, you are doing better than a lot of the so-called normal eaters on here.

Thanks! I was wondering if someone could just start a new thread... and not that I care if people post how much they excercised or not, but sometimes it distracts me when I'm quickly reading thru a post trying to get any sort of inspiration for something new, different and "healthy" to try...

I thought I'd return ;-)



Today:



Bfast: None :-( was in such a hurry!!!



Lunch: Bertucci's :-) :-) YUM!! :-) I had a 1/2 a personal pizza with onion, mushroom and green peppers, a roll and a half dipped in olive oil with red pepper flakes (YUM) and a ton of salad with chianti dressing (its free, LOL.)



Dinner: This is probably going to sound weird to people, but its a very typical "I don't know what to make for my kids and I have no time" dinner in Puerto rico. Its rice, with a fried egg on top, served with riped, lightly sauteed plantains. Its tasty and simple... a little lacking in the veggie department, for which I will start the meal off with a salad with field greens and tomatoes :-)

Exercise: none

Breakfast: cup of chai with Silk Light

Lunch: Minimalist cheese quesadilla w/ salsa, cup of black bean & tomato soup, bottle of Fruit2O

Supper: Skillet potatoes w/ onions, peppers, carrots, spinach, tomatoes, seasoned w/ Zatarain's; scrambled tofu; 2 tortillas

Later: will probably have some Vitasoy Nog or hot choc



I seem to be moving away from having a real breakfast. I've heard that retired people often eat 2 meals a day, and the longer I spend not working, the more I seem to move in that direction. I don't get hungry until 10:30 or 11:00, and I often get distracted from fixing food until 12:30 or so.

I use to love those! I use to live near this really great bakery and they'd make those with chocolate on the inside and drizzled on top... they were super tasty. My french teacher use to bring them in all the time with a bunch of other tasty treats.
