grub diary

#1 Postby John V » Sun Aug 23, 2009 10:13 am

How committed I am to keeping a daily food list is uncertain, but I'll give it a try.
Enemy # 1 is late night gorging! Dangerous foods prone to lack moderation currently include corn tortilla chips, pb, and soy milk (I use unsweetened) I seem to have a growing pretzel habit. (white flour, which I other wise avoid mostly) I have no problem entirely avoiding sweeteners like sugar, corn syrup etc.

Started the day with Megaflora 14 strain probiotic, a couple spoons of psylium husks in water and a pot of Assam black tea with fresh ginger and a cup of soy milk. Now I'm going to have cinnamon oatmeal with a little margarine, followed by a Manitoba Harvest hemp protein smoothie with a banana, unsweetened cocoa and a cup of soy milk. I also am starting a new multivitamin/mineral, Rainbow Light, "Just Once."

I'm recovering from the gym with a couple cups of white grapes, which I'll follow with 3 smart dogs and a small ww pita.

Had a great salad including garden tomatoes and balsamic vinaigrette. A bit later I made humous, which I ate with 3 small ww pita. I'm hoping the earl grey w/fresh ginger and soy milk I'm enjoying will be it for today. Tomorrow I need more vegetables!
