My daily menu

I have decided to document what I am eating everyday. The Doctor gave me a Anti-Inflammatory food pyramid. How cool is that?? So I thought the easiest way to make sure I am getting all the nutrients I need is to journal it. I guess I will make this one blog per week instead of having daily entries. I will start one at the beginning of each week and go back each day to add to it. I know this will help me a ton !!

Also, I would like to note my weight from my appointment yesterday as 156 lbs ! I have another appointment in 6 weeks and I am eager to see the changes from my new Healthy Eating Habits !!

So today Wed, April 14th, I have had………..

  • Breakfast-Vegan Sausage Patti’s-yum !!, Pink Grapefruit
  • Snacks-Carrots & Hummus, Pumpkin Seeds
  • Lunch-was taken over with a nap
  • Snacks-Raw Broccoli with Hummus, Raisins, Corn Chips, more Pink Grapefruit
  • Dinner-Soyrizo baked with carrots & peas, french fries and asparagus. Mmmmm, Kiwi for dessert

Drank water all Day and started taking Flaxseed Oil suppliments. 3,000 mg a day

  • Breakfast- A whole grain cereal with almond milk and a glass of Oj
  • Lunch-Something I threw together………….a whole wheat wrap with a spinach hummus spread, avocado, cucumber, and tomato. MMMMMMMMMMMMMmmmmmmmmmMMMM…………..so yummy, that I made another one !!

April 16th

  • Breakfast- 12 grain toast with Earth Balance butter, kiwi and Vegan Sausage
  • Snack-Strawberries, banana
  • Lunch- My super yummy wraps (see yesterdays lunch)
  • Snack-Carrots and hummus & spinach dip, strawberries
  • Dinner-missed, I was working a Cookie Lee gig but did have a Coke, which I felt soo guilty drinking but was in need of the caffeine.

April 17th

  • Breakfast- 1  1/2 pieces of 12 Grain toast, one piece with jelly and one half with butter and watermelon
  • Snack-Raw broccoli with roasted garlic hummus and pumpkin seeds
  • Lunch-Cooked broccoli in Earth’s Balance butter mixed with fresh Avacado and Carribean Tofu. Watermelon as a dessert
  • Dinner-Vegan burger (Boca, but I have only seen them at Whole Foods so far), brussel sprouts and mashed potatos made with left over potato salad. Let me explain…..the potato salad I made did not have mayo but a dressing instead. I had only made enough of the dressing for the meal in which it was used for. So, I was able to mash up the rest of the potato salad and throw it into a frying pan.

Drank water all day and still taking Flaxseed supplements

  1. Oooooo…an anti-inflammatory food pyramid!! That is very cool!!

    I am going to experiment with Dr. Oz’s “reverse heart disease” diet which is vegetarian. It’s not Vegan.. but dairy is certainly limited as well as seafood. I am going to try this in a few weeks when Marek comes back from traveling to see if it helps his blood pressure and cholesterol…and after we empty out what’s already in our refrigerator and freezer.

    Can you list the brands that you try that are good.. because some are better than others…

    Looking forward to seeing your progress!!
