What Pamela eats

#1 Postby pamela » Wed Nov 28, 2007 1:56 pm

Fasten your seat belts and contain your excitement people, you're in for a wild ride with this hot topic! :twisted:

I'm hoping this food journal will help to give people an idea of what a vegan athlete eats, and will also help to make me more accountable in a daily basis. That being said, I reserve the right to lie and withhold information! :P OK, I won't really lie, I might just occasionally not mention if I go overboard with the crackerjack or something. ;)

omg but the cost.... :shock:

Here's the breakdown for today, not including maca (or a multi vitamin), as I have yet to find that available in a way that I can input into fit day. I think I could stand to eat a bit more, given I did an 18k run earlier. Maybe I'll make some brownies for dessert! :D I don't need to worry about eating anything of nutritional substance, since I've already exceeded every single RDA (on less than 1800 calories I might add). This is a pretty typical day. Oh I just realized I forgot to include pineapple, but there's no way I'm reformatting all of those numbers again!

I normally get everything I need on about 1,800 calories too, it's really cool when you do that. :)

Yeah, that's why I'm pretty generous with myself when it comes to things like dessert and snacking; I am getting what I need by eating nutrient dense staples. I love it! :)

Of course, given all the running I should probably be eating a bit more than I do, but I figure as long as I'm satiated and feeling good, why bother? I mean, I don't think it'd be healthy to add 500 calories of brownies or cinnamon buns every day, and I certainly can't imagine choking down that much additional broccoli or raw fruit. :x

I also like how no matter what I eat, I almost always come in at roughly the same breakdown of carbs/fat/protein, without even trying. My body knows what it needs, I guess. It seems to be working for me!

I made and ate some brownies tonight. They were delicious! It's the first vegan brownie recipe I've made that didn't suck. They were moist and chewy and yummy. :P

For me it's about 1/4 of a pineapple. What you just described is more like four servings. :P Maybe more.

I want a corer. I need to find where to buy one. I've started buying them cored lately because I got so tired of having to core and clean them every few days.

just type in "pineapple corer" on your search engine and see what you get. That was the first one I got. I purchased my stainless steel one at Williams Sonoma.
