Weekly Food Diary

Posted on Wed Jul 2009 by Miranda

After recovering from a very sore tummy last week, pleased to say I am feeling much better this week. I had an exciting week with a few sunny days away in Anglesey and visit to Wembley Stadium to see Take That ( they were amazing). So my eating regime was thrown off slightly but I managed to ensure I had enough supplies. Also I got slightly overwhelmed by the taste of Booja Booja Ice Cream, as you will see.

My food restrictions are:
Sugar Free & Yeast Free (due to candida diet), intolerant to: gluten, dairy, eggs, some oily fish and cashew nuts.

NB. Also as part of a healthy balanced diet and to avoid energy lows I am aiming to eat 5 times a day; three main meals and two proper snacks (all of which must contain some protein). Each main meal needs to be eaten slowly with a balance of 1/4 carbs, 1/4 protein and 1/2 vegetables.

So here goes my weekly food diary:

    hello darling first of all thank you so much for writing your food diary! Its very interesting to see what other fussie foodies eat!! (i am on the anticandida diet and have a few food intolerances too..)
    I just had a question, it seems to me that you dont eat a lot of vegetables. A few salads here and there but not hell of a lot. i tend to eat a lot of veggies on my side (veggie curries, soups, casseroles etc…) same with legumes like beans and lentils. Is there a reason for it? Or is it just because of your personal taste?

      Hello Aurelie – Thanks for the message and glad you like read the food diary.

      I always try to have my meals made up of atleast 1/4 vegetables. This week I was away from home for a few days, so I didnt have lots of time for cooking so some big salads were in order instead. My salads are always large and packed with a variety of veggies. Its good to eat lots raw veggies too and I pack my salads with seeds and beans too.

      I love making soups and when I do casseroles, pasta or curries pack them with beans and vegetables like you too. Infact you have inspired me to have a veggie juice for my morning snack (Veggie Juice Recipe)
