Yesterday, I decided that I needed to change the way I was eating – to get back to eating healthy, real foods that made me feel good. As part of that, I decided that I was going to photograph and post everything I ate for the next seven days.
Welcome to the end of Day 1, everyone! Let’s see how it went:
Breakfast: I woke up hungry, and made myself an omelet. Last night, I had sauteed some Swiss Chard for dinner, so I used the leftover greens and some sharp cheddar in the omelet, with a side of whole wheat toast. Oh, and hot tea.
Disclaimer – remember that it’s Saturday! Come Monday, don’t expect to see anything fancy like this, but you can look forward to pictures of a bowl of oatmeal at my desk at work. Yum!
So far, so good. Next, lunch: My boyfriend and I had to go run some errands today (we stocked up on wine and I bought a new snow blower – January in Northeast Ohio is a bad time for that to crap out), so we went to Rockne’s for lunch. I chose the Firestone salad – grilled chicken, dressing on the side and an iced tea. The picture doesn’t really do it justice, though. Their salads are huge!
Lastly, dinner: Cheese, bread, greens, fruit. It took me all of 5 minutes to make, and was so good! The rest of the leftover greens and some brie on whole wheat bread with apples from the last farmer’s market. Delicious!
And I had to try a glass of the new wine. I chose this because it was $4.99 and I wanted to see if it was any good. It’s fantastic! It’s just a red table wine, but I definitely should have bought more than one.
Not bad, right? This is why I frustrate myself. With the exception of lunch, I had all this good, real food in the house. I had local, farm fresh eggs. I had bread that I had made myself a few days ago and just hadn’t cut into yet. (And for the record, I can made a kickass loaf of bread.)
So why in the world wasn’t I eating it? And would I have made these same choices if I wasn’t posting it here for anyone to see? Good questions. And I’m not sure I know the answers, but at least I’m on the right track.
See y’all tomorrow!
