I think the OP was mainly venting but for instance I will eat
Alternating options including
total cereal, shredded wheat cereal with silk
fresh fruit, i alternate but most of the time berries and melon.
cup of tea
once in awhile i eat eggs and have whole wheat toast.
i like to eat a whole wheat pita with cucumber and yogurt sauce with some dill, i usually have some chopped up red peppers on there and some warm chick'n patty type thing.
another favorite is brown rice and kidney beans with tomatoes and onions and garlic. Once a week or so i have some type of whole wheat pasta with sauce or some steamed veggies and beans. I also eat alot of other assorted things but not daily, i try to mix it up. I eat alot of snacks too.
Snacks throughout the day include apples, bannanas, extra melon and berries from breakfast, hummus on triscuts crackers or dipped in carrots, artichoke hearts, additional cereal with soymilk, seeds like sunflower and nuts like walnuts and almonds, dried fruit. I try and mix it up and not eat the same thing for snacks everyday. These are some of my snacks that are in rotation.
dinner is different alot of the time too. I like to have 3-4 different things at dinner time. like 2 veggies im always trying new ones. My new favorite is kale. I try to mix beans in anything whenever possible. a starchy item like brown rice(sometimes white) quinoa or a potato (white, red or sweet) with skins. I also really like some type of tofu with everything. Really currently liking lightly broiled tofu. sometimes i will substitute one of my veggies or starch for a piece of multi grain bread with hummus. (the real kind of bread with lots of grains in it!) I eat on smaller plates to keep portion sizes down but fill my plate usually.
Im always full after my meals. I know it totally sounds like a lot of food but keep in mind those are the options i rotate. I dont eat like 20 snacks a day! I drink about 6 glasses of water a day, no juices, rarely eat candy or junk type foods like chips. I try and maximize my nutrition by selecting whole grains, and eating whatever i can with as little cooking as possible and try to keep the skins on whenever possible. One thing im currently working on is getting more iron. Im always exploring new foods. My newest is quinoa. Any opinions on any good additions or substitutions would be great.
