    Default Healthy Eating Challenge!

    I'm constantly trying to maintain healthy eating habits, but it's hard. I thought here we could post the healthy things we eat and encourage each other.

    Today I am doing well. So far, I have eaten:

    Breakfast:
    Iced mocha with 1% milk (homemade)
    Honey Nut Cheerios with skim milk

    Snack:
    Dried apricots
    Orange juice

    Lunch:
    Spinach salad with clementine
    Low-sodium hummus (homemade)
    Kashi Heart to Heart crackers (basically Triscuits but much healthier)
    Banana
    2 Dove dark chocolate squares
    Masquerading as a normal person day after day is exhausting.

    I'll play along as well, although I already know I won't succeed in posting my meals for very long, so I'll have to do my own version of this.

    I currently have 3 rules that I'm trying to follow with my diet, and will add a new rule every 2-3 weeks. So far:
    1. Take a multi-vitamin and fish oil each day. (This means a dose in the morning and a dose at night.)
    2. Save the most carb dense foods for after exercise.
    3. Eat a lean protein with every meal and snack.

    At the end of the week, I'll report on how I did.

    As far as sharing a meal, I got breakfast down by usually making some sort of vegetable omelet.
    2 handfuls spinach
    1/3 onion chopped
    handful of mushrooms
    1 slice of cheddar cheese
    1-2 whole eggs
    1 cup egg whites (i buy the carton)

    + 1 banana

    Those rules sound good. However you want to use this thread, however it is helpful to you, is great!

    I had a healthy dinner last night (jambalaya and spinach) but then I kind of blew it by having a couple of cookies in the evening. But still, I did pretty well, I think-- my main goal lately is to make sure I am getting enough of the nutrients I need-- calcium, protein, potassium, and iron are my main challenges-- and not too much of bad things like sodium, too many calories, too many carbs, and fat. I usually do pretty well on the fat, but carbs and especially sodium are a challenge. I've been better at sodium in the last few weeks though, mainly just by paying attention to what I buy. I found crackers with much lower sodium, canned veggies with no sodium added, etc. I can't believe how much sodium is in our everyday foods!!

    Anyway yesterday I succeeded in getting enough of ALL of the nutrients I need-- I think this is the first time for potassium!-- and only went a little over in calories, sodium and carbs.

    Wow. Awesome taking on all of the nutrients . I'm nowhere near that stage yet, but what site do you use for it / do you need to manually input a lot of things?
    I've slacked on inputting all of my input into my Sparkpeople over the past few months, but I feel motivated to start up again.

    I'm not inclined to post some of my food choices today, despite being in range.
    The happier notes were my Dad's homemade pea soup and homemade tacos. I'm hoping to get back into the kick of alternating between healthier options, but tend to find myself getting sick of certain foods too quickly. Cottage cheese, oatmeal, hummus, etc. I need to space out how frequently I eat them, or I'll end up warding myself off for a month or two. :/
    Oh well. Cheers to healthier eating!

    I wonder if it will help me to belong to this thread...(haha I talk about it like it's the Elks club or something.) I don't eat so well all the time...

    I ate a ridiculous amount all weekend because of the availability of food around me.

    Today I ate a piece of peanut butter bread, (whole wheat), a donut, a cup of OJ, a couple of glasses of milk, (1 percent), a couple of glasses of water, a couple of cups of coffee, and a serving of tuna casserole. I think the peas in the casserole was my only fruit/veggie choice. (and now a few glasses of red wine. ) I was very lethargic and craving carbs all day.

    Maybe I can report something better tomorrow! I went grocery shopping today and bought some healthier stuff, so.. We'll see.
