Today I cooked up enough food for a week. awesome! and it was mostly local. in Wisconsin. in winter. awesome! oh yeah, and it's good too. I cooked up a pound of white beans in one pan, some spelt berries (local!) and oat groats in another; and then in a big pot, cooked up a giant onion, a giant beet, giant rutabaga, purple cabbage, and mushrooms (all local!). This made 13 servings. I froze most of them. Now all I have to do is cook up some veggies on the side.
This is the sort of meal plan I plan for the next week:
Breakfast: fruit and 1 oz mixed raw nuts (I made my own mixture). My fruit choices this week are apples, concord pears and grapefruit.
Snacks: raw carrots (local)
Lunch and dinner: cooked veggie (e.g., collards, kale, which are local from our garden, or broccoli, cauliflower which are not local) and/or salad (greens, ground seeds, vinegar), serving of the food I cooked up or a baked potato or baked sweet potato with some home-made soy yogurt.
So I may not have much to report for the next week since I just told you my food. I also am settling on my exercise plan, probably something like this: in the morning walk to the Y, swim or weights, walk some more. then in the afternoon, up and down stairs for 30 minutes. I want to fit yoga in there too. I'm training for a backpacking trip so want to do lots of walking and climbing and I want to get strong.
