I fell off the food journaling wagon. Keeping track of my food over the next week will be crucial to getting me to stay on track for the last week of my contest.

3 cups water

Breakfast
1/2 c oats (dry) cooked with:
1 apple
1 t raisins
1 t maple syrup
8 almonds
cinnamon

Snack
2 dried apricots

Lunch
tofu, grilled veggie sandwich on w.w. pita
1/2 vegan maple syrup sweetened cranberry bran muffin

Dinner
vegetarian shanghai noodles w/ tofu
spring rolls

Dinner made me feel very very very very ill. Too much oil. Never again.

Breakfast
1 c wheat cereal w/ almond milk
1 t raisins
6 almonds

Lunch
Tofu sandwich on walnut bread
Pickle
Dijon mustard
Miso soup with root vegetables and black kale

Dinner
Cucumber and Tomato sandwich on dark rye

Too many flour products but not bad considering I had to eat out for dinner. I'm glad I was able to come home for lunch. The soup felt good.

Pre-Workout
Water w/ lemon

- Leg day -

Post-Workout/breakfast
1/2 c grainless cereal (sprouted almonds, sprouted sunflower seeds, sprouted walnuts, raisins, apples, figs)
almond milk

Snack
12 grain bagel
black tea w/ vanilla rice milk

Lunch
Indian buffet
1 cup rice
2 cups mixed vegetable curries

Dinner
1 tofu cutlet
3 cups mixed vegetables

The Indian buffet was icky. I had a lunch date and that's the only place she wanted to go. I'll have to find a way to tell her we can't go there together. I hate it. I couldn't finish what was on my plate. I've got to stop eating out.

Brown rice is my staple today. I might continue this tomorrow depending on how my tummy feels. So far, still wonky.

I made brown rice with 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds. I toasted the seeds and added a splash of tamari to them. I think the whole thing is about 3 cups in total.

I've eaten a portion of this mix three or four times today. I have a tiny bit left and I might have it later. However, I think I'm done eating for the day.

In addition, I've had 1.5 cups of apple juice on ice. It's my comfort drink when I'm sick. I've had 1/2 an umeboshi plum to neutralize the acidity in my stomach and three mugs of kukicha tea. So about 4.5 cups of tea.

So in total, I think I'll get about 1100 calories today and I can live with that.
