micro-nutrition test

I decided to try to get a better idea of what i'm actually putting into my body these days.  Its tricky for me because i tend to be a garbage disposal for the family - any food the boys don't eat (piece of banana, crusts of toast, etc automatically goes into my mouth) - but for three days i kept careful track.  Here's the results:

Sept 16th (in no particular order):

  • 2 pieces of toast with butter, peanut butter, and honey
  • Crusts from boys toast
  • 2 cups of coffee (16 oz) with cream and raw sugar
  • 1 bite banana
  • 1 slice cheese
  • 4 tbsp sunflower seeds
  • 1 vegie bowl - swt. potato, onion, green beans, cucumber.  sauteed with oil. salted
  • 1 apple
  • handful of graham bunnies
  • 1 raw rev bar
  • 1 plus bowls of pasta w/brocolli, mushrooms, onions, carrots, and feta cheese
  • 1 tbsp peanut butter
  • handful of walnuts
  • 3+ cups popcorn (no butter, hand popped in canola oil)
  • hot chocolate (from mix)
Sept 17th:

  • 2 pieces of butter, peanut butter, and honey toast
  • 2 cups of coffee (16 oz) with cream and raw sugar
  • 2 small pieces of cheese pizza and 1 cheese breadstick
  • 1 small piece of cake (birthday party)
  • small bowl of veggie mix (same as Sept 16)
  • 1 tbsp sunflower seeds
  • apple
  • 1 tbsp walnuts
  • 1+ slice of homemade wheat bread
  • 2 bowls of homemade chicken and vegetable soup
  • orange and apple slices
  • 1 cup or so of popcorn
Sept 18th:
  • 1 piece of toast with butter, PB, and honey
  • crusts from boys
  • 2 cups of coffee (16 oz) with cream and raw sugar
  • 2 raw rev bars
  • 2 bowls of chicken soup
  • 2 pieces of cornbread with butter and real maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp of sunflowers
  • 2 handfuls of cheddar bunnies
  • all fruit fruit leather
  • banana
  • small bowl of ice cream with melted peanut butter
  • 2 tbsp left over chicken salad mix with crusts from boys sandwiches
Thats it!  Looking back it doesn't look too shabby, at least not compared to the average diet.  Lots of nuts, lots of veggies and fruit, but clearly not a very austere diet in my opinion.  Keeps me ticking anyway.  Cheers!
