food log

A random food log. I actually did not record everything I consumed, but you get the idea.

So, as an assignment for school I have to document everything (every. single. thing) I put in my body for five days. I figure this will also help me stick to my guns with my usual eating habits, even though it's currently 9 AM and I really want sushi. I considered going to the cafeteria in my building to get it, but am going to stick with my usual eggs instead. Maybe I'll get it for lunch though, since I only have a chicken leg and cauliflower, both of which I ate yesterday, and the latter of which tastes like effing dish soap. Back to the point.

Wednesday 2/29:
Supplements: two total mineral tabs, two krill oil pills, 1 500 mg folic acid and 1 acidophilus probiotic pearl
Breakfast: 2 hard boiled organic/pastured eggs with mustard and detox tea with some kombucha (75% of which spilled in my purse, so about 8 oz)
Lunch: 1 salmon avocado roll, 1 tuna avocado roll, both dipped in rooster sauce
Dinner: a bowl of mussels in tomato broth from Busboys and Poets and a salad (plus one bite of Jennifer's brie cheese sandwich), with three glasses of organic cabernet sauvignon, plus water
Late night: kinda tipsy from the wine, got a burger with lettuce, onion and tomato from Elevation, so it was grass-fed but I forgot to tell them no bun (which I took off myself), I cut off about 1/4 of it and ate it with some fries that were fried in olive oil and organic ketchup
Before bed: one glass of raw milk
Drank a 24 oz bottle of water with some kombucha and 3 drops of grapeseed extract before getting home around 5:30.

  1. Loved the idea about journaling all things eaten. I sometimes write down generalities, but this post challenged me to pay more attention!
    About frying with olive oil, if the temp. reaches above 350 degrees it converts to 'bad' trans fatty acids which are hard for the liver to metabolize. Think coconut oil, butter or lard if frying to avoid those bad trans fats.
    Thanks for all the motivation!

    1. Yeah, it really helped me realize everything I was eating, and just to be more aware in general. Love the tip about the other oils! I completely agree, unfortunately I was eating out and establishments love to spout off about the lack of saturated fats in "heart healthy olive oil." Haha
