Nope. Not happening. Ain't doing it. Don't care HOW healthy it is for me!

Saturday, October 06, 2012

Ok, I've been working hard in therapy. I am able to take a few steps with no crutches, and as long as I feel ok, I can move around the house with one (I use the forearem crutches, much easier for me). That means I can start taking care of getting my own food and not have to depend on someone bringing me whatever.

My son was really fairly good about making me peanut butter toast or bringing me ceareal bars and milk or bananas. But now I can start doing for myself. And no matter what I do the meal plan keeps saying "cream of wheat". NO! That has got to be one of the most disgusting foods on the planet. I'm sorry if you like it, I don't. I will not eat it. And no, its not like with green eggs and ham, trying it will NOT make me change my mind. It will make me ill. Violently, physically, sick. The THOUGHT of the texture and taste makes my stomach start roiling most unpleasantly.

Oatmeal, great. I can do that. I did learn my lesson about the prepackaged, premeasured kind though. That's pretty nasty. Tasted WAY salty and all we did was put milk in it to cook because I was way low on protein. So back to the measuring cup and cardboard container!

Can't stand rice pudding, tapioca, or grits either. Or that corn stuff, what's it called? Hominy! Yeah, not a fan of that either.

So I am having bananas and cottage cheese with a measured number of chips for breakfast. I haven't been feeling like eating and have been way under my calories, so anything that sounds good right now is worth trying.

maybe I will have the energy to make a salad with hard boiled egg and cheese for lunch. That sounds good. But by then it might not, lol. We'll see.

    Whoa! Don't feel like you have to adhere to the meal plans, they are just there to help or to guide you. Actually, I seldom use them or use them day by day (especially since I cook for two). One benefit of using them as a standard is to get the shopping list for the week, but once you get the idea of how to build a healthful nutritious meal, serving guidelines, etc. you can build your own Favorite meals and Groupings to make filling out your menus.

There is nothing wrong with eating the same thing multiple days in a row, I eat the same breakfast almost every day. Once you build you typical meals (breakfast, lunch, dinner) they are easy to add to each day using the copy form a previous day feature or the grouping of favorites feature. I often have a sandwich for lunch, so I made a group of the bread, condiment, and other additives (lettuce, tomato, etc.) and made it a Group called "Sandwich lunch". So once I add that to a day's menu all I have to do is add what else goes on the sandwich or remove an item from the day's meal. Saves a lot of clicks and typing!

Build up your favorites so that it is easy to build a meal without doing many full searches on SP.

Also, another tip, take a look at the Nutrition on any item you have to do an expanded search on Sparkpeople added foods before you add to make sure that it is accurate on the basics (calories,protein, carbs, fat), and any others nutrients you feel are especially important to you (I track fiber and sodium).
