is your full menu/plan for TODAY?

For breakfast, I had 3 small whole-wheat blueberry pancakes and one egg over easy.

Breakfast was my usual berry muesli (it has no sugar, but some dried berries and fruits for sweetness) with whole milk and a mug of coffee.

Lunch was the stuffed squid, quinoia, fennel salad and some raw orange pepper. We drank watr, as usual.

In the evening I may eat a bit of quinoia again or maybe an avocado or else just some cut up cukes and a glass of wine.

I don't usually eat any snacks between meals.

So far, I've only had one cup of coffee with hot chocolate in it--80 cal. I'll have a sourdough English muffin with chunky peanut butter on it for breakfast. I don't know about lunch yet but there are some hard boiled eggs in the fridge so I'll probably end up with egg salad sandwich and an apple for lunch. For dinner, we're having tilapia pouched in tomatoes, garlic, and olive oil served over linguine.

Hmmm....for breakfast I had coffee, a small chunk of Brie, and some cherries. I probably won't eat lunch today. I can't eat before I teach and I have a class from 12-2. I'll have a diet coke during the 5-6 minute break I will give the students during class. Then I have to go buy a new dishwasher and probably won't get home until about 4 or 4:30. Then I will probably have a handful of nuts and most of an apple (the rest will be given to our parakeets) while I cook dinner, which will be chicken cordon bleu, wild rice, and either asparagus or broccoli, whichever seems to be needing to get eaten first when I go home and check.

I don't plan out my day usually, except for dinner. I'm usually home for all three meals so for breakfast and lunch, just make whatever I'm in the mood for.

This morning I had a banana for breakfast as I was in a rush out the door to swim lessons and tennis camp. I'm not much of a breakfast eater but I know it's important so I try!

For lunch I'm going to make turkey (from Trader Joe's - no nitrates/additives!), swiss, sliced avocado, sliced tomato and a few pieces of fresh spinach on a whole wheat tortilla. If I'm still hungry, I'll have a little bit of leftover pasta salad I made this weekend.

I doubt I'll have a snack b/c I'll be at the pool this afternoon and don't usually eat there.

For dinner, we will be at our kids' swim meet. I'm making sandwiches (I think I'm going to make a veggie sandwich for me w/tomato, onion, cucumbers, shredded carrots, spinach and feta cheese with a bit of balsamic vinegar). I cut up a large watermelon plus strawberries that I'm bringing. If I have time, I'm going to make a couscous salad with grilled zucchini. It's going to be a long night!

My 1:30am snack is usually popcorn. That's what it was today.

My lunch (3:30a) was marinated chicken with grilled onions and a romaine and feta salad with a TBL of Ken's Northern Italian lite dressing.

My workout today was heavy weights with aerobics (intervals) for 50 minutes.

Breakfast was 3/4C of egg beaters, with a whole wheat english muffin.

Dinner will be more of the marinated chicken with a romaine/feta/Ken's dressing salad and broccoli.

Breakfast was greek yogurt and organic blueberries for me. DS had goat yogurt with the organic blueberries along with a slice of whole wheat toast (organic bread). He had some organic strawberry jelly on it. We both had water.

Lunch is salads for us both made of lettuce, walnuts, blue cheese and cranberries (all organic) and sliced apples. DS's will have (antibiotic free and grass fed) chicken breast also. Water again for us both.

Dinner is at the ballpark. DS will have a hamburger along with popcorn, peanuts and a funnel cake. I'm looking forward to a lemon shake up and funnel cake.

We have gone almost completely organic and all meat is hormone/antibiotic free and vegetarian fed. In the process we have cut out most processed foods. Since making the change I have noticed gigantic advances in DS's executive function issues (Aspergers' syndrome) and that I feel better. Little aches are gone, more energy and better complexion. I have not eliminated meals out. If it is in my home, it is pretty healthy. We can enjoy restaurant meals and eating at friend's homes and know that the not as healthy or plain junk is in moderation.
