I'll check back later and tell you what I ate!

Breakfast: oven baked oatmeal with milk, apples, dried cranberries. Hardboiled egg. Half grapefruit.

Lunch: Stirfried tempeh with green beans, rice, other veggies (ate at the whole foods store).

Dinner will be turkey and bean chili, broccoli, leftover squash, and probably one more veggie.

Breakfast - Rice Krispies - with sugar added.

Pre-Lunch - Tuna Fish sandwich (Yes I'm aware of the Mercury..etc, etc. ) Um, a piece of candy I think. Big glass of water

Lunch - Baked potato w/butter and cheese..wish there was more cheese....

Snack - Pickles wrapped in turkey and cheese (basically a sandwich without the bread I guess...but tasty!) - deli meat - another no-no huh? I'm awful! lol

more snack - couple more pieces of candy. A can of coke..I know, naughty naughty. (Mean left over halloween candy!)

Dinner (yet to come) - We're having Chick-Fil-A - probably a chicken sandwich with their waffle fries and ice tea. :

I'm sure there's another snack to come to...

I absolutely LOVe you guys! First of all, i love how you guys are trying to eat healthy. On the other board that I go to, which is not crunchy at all, it is a whole nuther (sic) world - what these women are eating during their pregnancies. Like, all the things we are embarassed for - is all they eat!!! And they aren't eating very much at all, which made me feel like a hog. I snack all day. They are eating like 3 meals a day, no snacks, and I'm like - holy cow OINK OINK. But, here, you guys eat more like me. You try, you eat, and I love that you are human, too, and not perfect in your healthy eating!
Oh, and Anita - I've been eating deli meat, too!

Oh yeah, here's what I ate today:
BF - oatmeal with apple and brown sugar.
S - 2 large glasses of soy milk with coffee flavor and one had whip cream!
Lunch - So took me to Wendys, where I had a bacon cheeseburger (can we say hormones!?) and a baked potato. But, I didnt' eat the skin, cause it looked really iffy. I put sour cream and salsa on it. I also snagged a few of SO's fries!
S-a couple of hard boiled eggs
Pre-dinner - a couple of crackers, 1/2C egg nog and 1/2 a biscotti type thingy
D - meat loaf, mashed tatos, sweet tatos, and green beans (MIL made - YUMMY!)
D- get this!! ---> 1 pc. bundt cake, 1 scp. vanilla ice cream, and another biscotti

HEEHEE!!! Too many sweet, not enough veggies today!

Oh dear, not so good today. Well, starting last night after my pretty good menu, I got up at 11 p.m. because I was hungry and ate--hard boiled egg, and half a bag of Barbara's cheese puffs : Well, at least no PHO's.

Tuesday:
BF: hard boiled egg, glass of 100% cranberry juice (was having early UTI symptoms--wow, that stuff is SOUR! but I got it down). Some tamari almonds.

early Lunch: nitrate-free turkey sandwich, heated, with (pasteurized) goat cheese, avocado and mayo. Sauerkraut. decaf coffe with eggnog again.

Snack: 3/4 bar of dark chocolate Few more cheese puffs.

Snack: turkey burger. Carrot sticks.

Dinner: 3-4 servings of brussel sprouts, spaghetti squash, tomato soup.

I don't know if this thread is good for me or not--it is keeping me accountable, but then I don't feel as bad about eating no-no's when I see you all are about the same!

I am so proud of myself, I did SO good yesterday. I got 99% of my Brewer's diet. Everything but the citris fruit!
I had a total of 4 - 12 oz glasses of soy milk (with coffee flavor added - YUM!)
2 eggs (fried)
whole wheat pasta with diced tomatoes, spices, and olive oil
brown rice, tofu, carrots and collard greens for dinner

YAY for me. Can I do it again today. I'm going for 100% of Brewer's today. Although i need to scrounge some money to go buy some more soy milk! I had some SweetTarts before bed, but I find that I really can get in what I need if I stay away from all those sweets and stuff!

S- ½ eng muffin with veggie cream cheese, mug of red zinger tea

B- Farmer's Omlet (tomatoes, pepper, onions, sausage and ham), rye toast, home fries. Cup of decaf tea with honey and lemon (my throat started to really hurt)

S - Ezekial toast with PB, another cup of tea (throat really started hurting!)

L- White bean soup (only ate half, throat hurt and started feeling feverish)

That was it... Turns out I have strep throat, so by 3pm I was down and out... Still feel like crap. Not happy about taking antibiotic but can't afford to try going the homeopathic route right now. DH is unable to get off because they are switching out operating systems at work and they are running a skeleton crew.

I have amazing friends who delivered dinner tonight (baked ziti) and will be bringing over baked chicken and mac&cheese for tomorrow night. And my MW prescribed 3 days of "bed-rest"... Stay on the couch don't do anything unless the kids are bleeding or the house is on fire! I'm just trying to keep hydrated, which is hard since I feel like I have a sand paper sock stuck in my throat.
