Day 19 of my "diet." Here's my food log, weight, exercise, and thoughts.
breakfast, 10 am: 1 lb strawberries and homemade soy yogurt.
snack, 11 am: 1 lb carrots (wasn't hungry, just wanted to eat).
lunch, 1 pm: Jamaican Jerk lentil burger and steamed asparagus; beet/apple/carrot juice; a few crackers (Mary's) and some hummus type thing, not very much. at Manna cafe.
dinner, 7 pm: big plate of greens topped with homemade soy yogurt; baked oriental yam. at a pub-type restaurant. I ordered the big plate of greens and brought the rest.
dessert on drive home: blueberries (brought from home).
Calories: ??? the food I supplied had 890 calories. the plate of greens was probably had 50 calories. the crackers and hummus? I was well-behaved here (good for me!). maybe 100. the vegan burger? cronometer puts a vegetarian sandwich with mayo and veggies at 365. the beet/apple/carrot juice, that could have been as much as 200 calories. so maybe I had ~1600 calories? more than usual but okay with me.
Exercise: ran 3 miles.
- I worked with colleagues in Milwaukee today, about 90 miles away. The Manna cafe is pretty good and I'd eat there again, occasionally. Interestingly, I got that familiar tiredness from the old days (pre-healthy eating) after I ate the vegan burger. The "burger" part was pretty clean so I'm thinking it was the "whole wheat" bun. Am I wheat sensitive???? I felt back to normal a couple of hours later; sort of. I still feel a bit yucky in my stomach 10 hours laters.
- dinner worked perfectly. I knew a plain salad was all I would find on the menu and I asked for lots of greens piled on a plate. They did it perfectly, really piled on the greens! they added a little raw onion and tomato. I added my soy yogurt and it was delicious. And my baked yam was great. that is a great thing to bring to restaurants to add to the salad and provide calories.
