Tues Jan 27th - What I'm Eating

Breakfast: the rest of yesterday's scrambled eggs with spinach & tomatoes

Lunch: leftover chicken fricassee with whole wheat shells

Dinner: teriyaki chicken legs, steamed asparagus, brown basmati rice cooked in chicken broth with mushrooms

Snack: whole wheat quesadilla with colby jack cheese

Analysis: we like to marinate some chicken legs in some nice organic teriyaki sauce every now and then - they bake up really nicely in the oven and have a nice glaze on them - very flavorful and juicy! its a nice meal to prepare without a lot of extensive preparations! NICE! that being said, I really want to start figuring out ways to start incorporating more vegetables into my snacks, especially.

I really didn't realize how much grain I was eating until I learned more about them the other night and now I am noticing all of it! I can't wait to get the stuff I have out of my house and get started learning how to soak and sprout. I have also started doing some research on milk and dairy, which is interesting too! I'm not quite ready to write yet, but maybe in a day or two...

  1. Hey - I have a book called Essential Eating that talks a lot about sprouted grains and their benefits. The author says that when the grains sprout, they turn from a starch to a vegetable - at least to your body and the way your body digests it. So, perhaps thinking of it this way you are getting enough veggies?

    By the way, thanks for posting your food journey and all the information about food. It is very interesting and encouraging.
