Working on it! Changing my nutrition around that is..

Tuesday, April 10, 2012

I am getting very good at measuring out my food these days. My problem is I have too many carbs and protein, and too little fat. Every morning I have 3/4 cup of Fiber one cereal - honey clusters. One of my other meals for the day is Fiber one cereal - honey squares. Sooo I am getting to many carbs from this choice. But - this is my healthier option for late in the day. I have always eaten four meals a day - with the fourth one being a heavier snack of 1/2 a sandwich or salad. A few months back I had to change my fourth one into more of a meal instead of a snack due to my increase in activity. I was starving - with nothing filling me up. Fiber is a good choice. However, I also have to limit my phosphorous, sodium, and whole grains. JOY JOY JOY!

I think I may try to change up the cereal again - both bowls being the honey squares. The squares are less calories, carbs, and sodium,ect!

Writing about it has helped me greatly!

    I don't know your nutrition challenges, but what about instant oatmeal? Or whole wheat rice cakes with a bit of peanut butter? Would those change it up a little for you? emoticon

    Yes they say use Butter when you need some extra fat, or yet i take coconut oil capsules, and it is the good fat. and i also have coconut oil i cook with sometimes and i can take a spoonful every once in a while when i run out of the capsules. I give Lexy (dog) coconut oil every day.
Umm cinn. bagel and cinn cream cheese, and cinn. is so good for you. Also he apple lClaire eats.

    Perhaps some toast with butter or margarine would be good - you'd get some of that fat into your diet and depending on the bread you choose you could get a lot of fiber in. Or eat a bagel with cream cheese and an apple which is 246 calories, 41g carbs, 8g fat, 7g protein (this is my breakfast every day).

I know you'll figure it out!
