Food Journal

I usually ask my trainer for homework at the end of each session, and this week’s assignment is to write down everything I eat and drink and what time I ate it. And since you all know me so well, you know I’m not just making cursory notes. Along with my overly detailed notes I’ve been taking pictures of everything too. I won’t subject you to everything, but I’ll definitely share a few of them with you all.

Starting with the sad portion of ingredients I got at Chipotle. What the heck? I think they put more sour cream on there than they did chicken. Not cool:

Please admire this gorgeous crust:
I wish I could say I’d made that, but I didn’t. I ate out a lot this weekend (more than usual).

Popcorn with nutritional yeast topping is my new favorite. I had this for breakfast Sunday while I caught up on True Blood:

The shameful 3am chocolate peanut butter milkshake:
No, I don’t have a good excuse for that. Up late + hungry + period.

Finally, my dinner Friday night was a little bit of a stretch since we didn’t have any meat defrosted. I grabbed an egg instead:
That’s leftover homemade pasta with Mom’s marina and a scrambled egg. It was pretty good, actually.

And now I hope you can see why I’m not the kind of blogger who posts every meal she eats! I’ve thought about it because it would at least give me a starting place for each post but it’s way too much work.

BUT as a bonus for you not judging my eating habits, I have the recipe you’ve been after for weeks now: Basic Marinara, Mom style. This was from the February 2011 Southern Living magazine.

Do you keep a food journal? What’s your favorite thing you’ve eaten recently?

    I’ve tried to take pictures of my food before, but I always forget until I’m halfway through my meal. By then it would just look silly

    I had pear, Brie and ham French toast for breakfast yesterday…it was amazing! We were in Portland for a family wedding and got room service. Yum.

    Yay! I was actually meaning to harass you about getting that recipe, so excellent work! Also, that pot pie looks incredible. As does the milkshake. I can’t come here without getting hungry!!

      That is so not my goal, but maybe I should run with it. Haha. I keep claiming I’m not a food blogger and then talking about food nonstop. De-nial.
