What Did You Eat Today?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

There have been several posts recently about what to eat. (Seriously, do we talk about anything other than what to eat? ;-) ) So, out of curiosity, let's hear what everyone ate today. Concrete, be honest. I care about good junk food options too!

Breakfast

two corn tortillas, cheddar cheese, cherries

Mid-morning

tea with milk

Lunch

buckwheat pancakes with apple, walnuts, flaxseeds, and maple syrup

Snack

raspberries and chocolate covered toffee

Dinner

lettuce with white beans, green beans, tuna, balsamic vinegar dressing, and peas

Bedtime snack

probably cherries and cheese (or maybe pecans...)

It was very warm today so I didn't eat all that much. I did drink water with lime juice throughout the day though.

Breakfast: a banana

Lunch: a popsicle or two

Dinner: I made punjabi lamb and spinach curry over brown rice. Tasty. And I had some real jamaican ginger beer with it.

I am almost done baking a loaf of cottage cheese dill bread for next week. It looks great, rising, moist and happy :)

I ate fried chicken for breakfast. Then for lunch I fried a bunch of portabello mushroom chunks with an onion and 3 eggs. Ate it on toasted Kinickinick bread (unusual to have) with mayo. Still full from that so won't eat anything else. Forgot, also ate some Altoids peppermints

Breakfast - chocolate chex and diet mt Dew (a bit embarrassing, but once in a while, what the heck, ya know?

Lunch - deconstructed lasagna (turkey sausage, gluten-free pasta, ricotta, mozzarella, peppers, marinara, and spinach baked.)

Dinner? It's hot and I spent the afternoon splitting wood for the winter so nothing too industrious. Honestly, looks like a good chance of being corn on the cob and some ice cold watermelon.

There is also double chocolate gelato in the freezer calling my name.

Lots of good ideas here. :) -- Sunday isn't a typical day for me because I'm at church in the morning then I rush from there to a retirement community near here for Sunday afternoon services. So I do a lot of eating on the run.

Breakfast:

-- coffee

-- banana

Snack before morning worship at church:

-- apple

Coffee hour after worship:

-- watermelon

-- piece of cheese

(most stuff on the coffee hour table has gluten)

In the car on the way to the retirement community:

-- cheese stick

-- rice cakes

Dinner with the assisted living ladies:

-- tea

-- salisbury steak, mashed potatoes, carrots

After I got home:

-- gin and tonic, sorely needed. lol...

Might have a piece of chocolate before I go to bed. B)

I am intolerant to casein in addition to gluten, so can't have ice cream and treats like that, and just starting my 6th week of this. But I am content because I feel so good most of the time these days:

Breakfast was one egg, scrambled in olive oil, small amount of white potato hash browned.

Lunch - Cold chicken, brocolli, carrots, avocado salad w/lettuce and homemade russian dressing (Bragg's apple cider vinegar, Annie's organic ketchup, olive oil and a bit of raw honey)

Supper - Chicken, sweet potato, more salad with leftover dressing from lunch, + steamed broccoli, cauliflower, carrots & vidalia onion pieces, homemade iced tea with lemon

In between, lots of water!

This is not a typical day, but it's an example of the variety of foods we can eat.

Breakfast: Key Lime Pie Larabar scarfed down before church

Lunch (more like second breakfast): banana, string cheese, coffee

Fathers Day dinner (we invited my parents and cooked for them): corn chips and salsa, homemade smoked ribs with homemade BBQ sauce, grilled marinated chicken breasts, from-scratch crockpot baked beans, quinoa salad with lime, mint, cilantro and tomatoes, red cabbage and carrot slaw with soy (gluten-free) and ginger dressing. I washed mine down with a Redbridge beer.

Dessert: Peach crisp and vanilla ice cream

Still digesting. Probably will eat something light before bed.

I ran out of potatoes and rice and need to go pick some up so today I've had:

a banana

a spoonful of nutella

a small can of redbull

a delicious salad with mixed greens, mushrooms, tomatoes, cheese, cucumber seasoned with salt and pepper.

having gone out to get potatoes and rice I'll eat a way better dinner- probably brown rice seasoned with Thai Spice with broccoli, carrots and chicken.

I've also devoured half a small tub of Haagendaaz Vanilla Icecream while wandering the interweb.

I can see my eating habit for today has been pretty terrible now that I've written down.

Breakfast was ham on Udi's bread with mustard and sweet pickles

Lunch was T-bone steak, baked potato, macaroni and cheese, fresh cucumbers and fresh fruit

Dinner was fried fish and french fries with watermelon

Dessert was a glass of milk and a piece of chocolate coconut cake

Just realized that I didn't have more veggies. I usually eat much more fruits and vegetables on a daily basis but because it was Father's Day we were eating at other's houses.

Just curious ... Why do you avoid grains and sugar? I have a diagnosed (ELISA blood test) IgG mediated allergy to cane sugar (as well as dairy, soy, eggs, vanilla and nutmeg)? Are you also allergic to cane sugar? Do you have allergies to specific grains (besides gluten intolerance)?

Upon awakening: hot green tea

Breakfast: yogurt with Trader Joe's gluten-free granola & sliced banana, toasted slice of Udi's bread with sunflower spread

Brunch: garlic-encrusted baked polenta with poached egg, sauteed kale

Snack: iced green tea, strawberries

Dinner: went out for Senagalese food!

baked tilipia (fish), carrots & yams in a tomato sauce with rice

Interesting variety in our diets, despite the restrictions!

I began avoiding grains and sugar as a means to lower my blood pressure. Worked like a charm--my doctor ended up cutting my meds from 2 down to half of one. After a while, I began to add some back--not a lot, mostly rice, corn, and gluten-free bread and a little ice cream.

What happened was that I started having what feels like hypoglycemic episodes. They tend to happen when I eat rice or bread--it's very odd. I had bloodwork recently and my blood sugar number was good.

I have gone back to avoiding the grains and sugar--and can feel the difference. I have had skin-prick allergy testing for many foods and came up negative for all of them. Regardless, I will stick with what makes me feel better.

Skin prick tests only exclude IgE mediated food allergies or skin sensitivity allergies. They can't diagnose IgG or IgA delayed reaction allergies. For those allergies, blood tests are more effective.

I've also noticed hypoglycemic reactions to eating high sugar or high carb foods, unless I balance those in a meal with low glycemic fats, proteins and low carb, high fiber foods. I can eat grains, but I eat small amounts with vegies and protein. You'll notice from my 'menu' that I add almond butter, hazelnut milk, and chopped pear to my Bob's Red Mill 'Mighty Tasty' hot cereal. Without those additions, I'd be hungry an hour after my meal. With those additions, which lower the total glycemic index of my meal, I can go 4 hours without feel hungry after that bowl of hot cereal.
