birthdance Posted October 3, 2012 Share Posted October 3, 2012 Starting this log on day three, mostly to keep track of my food choices and make sure I'm getting a good balance of foods into my diet. Day One Breakfast: Slow cooker breakfast pie with ground beef, egg, sweet potato, onion. Grated raw carrot with a bit of olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Herbal tea Midmorning: A grapefruit and a cup of herbal tea. Lunch: Salad with lots of greens, leftover cold chicken and avocado. Midafternoon: A cold chicken leg. Dinner: Slow cooker beef stew with turnip, beetroot, fennel, onion, carrot. I was really craving dairy by the end of the evening. Day Two Breakfast: Leftover breakfast pie from yesterday, big handful of rocket and salad leaves, sliced raw mushroom. Herbal tea. Midmorning: Herbal tea and a handful of almonds. Lunch: Rocket and salad leaves with tinned tuna and mushroom with olive oil. Midafternoon: A banana and another handful of almonds. Then I got home and ate another handful or so of cashews. Too many nuts! Dinner: Leftover stew from last night. After dinner: A decaf coffee with a spoonful of coconut cream. This was a weird day as I spent most of it waiting at the hospital to get some tests done. I was at least prepared enough to take a salad and the banana and almonds, so I didn't have to buy any food while out. I know I'm not eating balanced snacks, eating too many nuts, and I feel like there's not enough fat in my diet without the raw milk I used to drink regularly. The coffee with coconut cream really helped with my dairy cravings and I felt satisfied after one mug, didn't feel any urge to binge on it! Had a headache all day which I'm sure is from sugar-withdrawals. Day Three Breakfast: Two eggs fried in coconut oil, sliced mushroom fried in coconut with thyme, sweet potato mashed with coconut milk and cinnamon, topped with a small handful of blueberries and a teaspoon of coconut cream. Herbal tea. Loved my breakfast this morning! Late morning: A chopped grapefruit with coconut cream and a few cashews. Lunch: Home made chicken nuggets (chicken breast, almond meal, spices) baked in the oven, served with lots of rocket and lettuce, sliced mushroom, olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Midafternoon: Decaf coffee with coconut cream Dinner: My son has requested meatballs - will probably make some basic beef meatballs in a tomato sauce and have them with a salad or cooked vegies. I'm feeling much more satisfied today including more coconut cream/milk in my diet and find it keeps away the dairy cravings. I've still got a headache, but it's better than yesterday.
