Week of Meals

Last night my husband paused the movie we were watching (more on that in another post) to inform me that he thought I should do a blog post on what I eat for a week.  He thought inquiring minds may wanna know.

I retorted that I don’t expect that there is a living soul who wants to read another post on my blog about what I’m eating these days, but it seemed like an easy post to put together since I have been keeping food logs, and I’ve learned never to predict what people might actually want to read, so here goes:

Monday

Breakfast: homemade granola with raw whole milk, coffee with cream and sugar

Lunch: vanilla yogurt, apple, 1/4 PBJ, water

(Yes, a 1/4 of a PBJ — my daughter didn’t finish hers and I hated to see it go to waste.)

Dinner: roasted chicken, roasted carrots, mashed potato, water

Snacks: banana

Tuesday

Breakfast: homemade granola with raw whole milk, coffee with cream and sugar

Lunch: roasted broccoli, fried egg with homemade bread toasted, strawberries

Yes, I realize it is somewhat unconventional to eat broccoli with eggs.  Dinneen told me I needed more veggies in my diet, and I had some leftover from dinner, so there you have it.

Dinner: whole wheat pasta with tomato sauce, water

Snacks: vanilla yogurt, brownie

Wednesday

Breakfast: baked soaked oatmeal, grapes, coffee with cream and sugar

Lunch: chicken noodle soup, apple, water

Dinner: Chicken Rosé, steamed green beans, roasted fingerling potato

Snacks: banana, dry roasted almonds

Thursday

Breakfast: 1 pastured egg fried in butter, 1 slice toast with raw butter, water

Snack #1: mocha latte with whole milk, chocolate chip cookie

Snack #2: 1/3 cup almonds, water

Snack #3: 1/2 apple, 1/2 homemade granola bar, small glass whole raw milk

Dinner: Baked Salmon, quinoa boiled in homemade chicken broth, steamed broccoli with butter, red wine

Friday

(I’ll go with last Friday since I obviously don’t know yet what I’ll eat today.)

Breakfast: 1/2 banana, 1 slice french toast, 1 cup coffee with cream and sugar

Lunch: vanilla yogurt, granola bar, water

Dinner: veggie frittata, water

Snacks: cheese and crackers, 1 glass white wine

Dinneen challenged me last week to put more variety into my diet (in other words, fewer carbs and more fruits and veggies) so I’ve been really focusing on that.  I’ve also gone off my Nexium, so I’ve been trying to keep my portion sizes down and to eat foods that won’t trigger heartburn.  So far, so good!
