Thurs Feb 5th - What I'm Eating

Breakfast: Ezekiel cereal the usual way...raisins, almonds, honey, whole milk

Lunch: Ezekiel corn tortilla quesadillas with the leftover breaded chicken

Dinner: Quiche with orange bell pepper, ham, and cheese, in a whole wheat crust; Mixed baby greens salad with homemade balsamic vinaigrette, pine nuts and dried cranberries; a few dried apricots

Analysis: I am getting tired of the same old breakfast but I seriously lack inspiration first thing in the morning. Same actually goes for lunch - I would prefer to have leftovers to eat but I definitely need to get better at whipping up veggie things during the day too. Dinner included some nice things though. I have had a lifelong dislike of bell peppers. I have tried to make myself learn to like them on several occasions, without success. Lo and behold, I love them in quiche! They become so sweet! Why is it that I can't stand them in anything else? I'll just keep trying because they are really really healthy... The baby green salad this time I noticed had baby chard in it, so I thought that was makes me feel like eating salad is worth more than just for roughage... And the dried fruits, that was a little treat I picked up at the store last time...its a close approximation to dessert...

So anyone have any brilliant ideas for how to improve my breakfast fare??


  1. I love eating plain yogurt with a diced pear (its almost shredded, I put it in our mini food processor), slivered almonds and about a tablespoon of wheat germ to add some more protein (which I can't eat anymore), and some honey. Another meal I like when I have the time is to put together a veggie omelet with onions, garlic, mushrooms, olives, red and yellow bell pepper. I'll eat that by itself or throw it between two corn tortilla's and put some cheese in it and turn it into a quesidilla.

  2. i've always loved plain thick yogurt with honey, walnuts, and apples. had it in greecend never looked back!
