Fri Feb 6th - What I'm Eating

Posting a little earlier than usual tonight - feeling quite exhausted and going to bed early.

Breakfast: Ezekiel cereal, what else? I was in a hurry, had to work early...

Lunch: Potluck at a friend's house so I will try to remember what I ate: whole wheat pasta salad with onions, black olives and I think some olive oil & other seasonings... quinoa pasta salad with chicken, broccoli, bell peppers, not sure what else... strawberries, blueberries, pineapple... chicken tortilla soup with sour cream - I didn't notice any tortilla in it though, mainly just tomatoes and chicken! red rooibos tea...

Dinner: Jason's Deli - half a wrap in a whole wheat tortilla with ham, cheese, mayo, lettuce, tomato... salad bar big baby greens salad with bean salad & mushrooms and blue cheese dressing. grapes and strawberries in yogurt. banana pudding.

Analysis: a rather odd day of eating. I did avoid the muffins and scones at the potluck... Banana pudding at Jason's I've decided is a splurge I am allowed. We go there probably not even once a month, so that is a treat for me. How bad can it be? Milk, bananas, gelatin, a little sugar? Hopefully its not full of fake stuff and preservatives and I guess I could find out, but I tend to give Jason's a fair bit of credit. If you are not familiar with this chain, they really have a lot of organic items on the salad bar, they are fully trans-fat free, they seem to have a good conscience when it comes to food quality. Maybe its just marketing and I shouldn't make assumptions and actually ask to see the ingredient list... I swear if I found out there was something worse than a bit of sugar in that pudding, I would never eat it again...hence the reason I've chosen ignorance up to this point. Ok, ok, next time I go there I will check the ingredients first!

I fully intend to do the milk and dairy post this weekend, so keep your eyes peeled!

  1. Don't check the ingredients list. You give yourself so few treats as it is, sometimes ignorance CAN be bliss!
