Not fun stuff but stuff that will fill me up and not lead to cravings. <BR> <BR> What is left is what I had planned for dinner today: chicken, cabbage, ginger, apple juice concentrate, basil. <BR> <BR> I already ate both snacks because they were way more tasty: hazelnut butter with apple pieces and I honestly can't remember the other snack. <em>24</em> <BR> <BR> <BR> If I had been eating dairy stuff or bready stuff, my calories w...

Since almonds are so expensive, I jut wondered about this. <BR> <BR> <BR> chris <em>24</em> Tue, 29 Jul 2014 18:19:15 EST SP trivia : How far does food travel to get to us? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5748287 Our existing system of food transportation and distribution requires enormous amounts of energy and resources. <BR> <BR> <BR> Before reaching your table, the average food item in the United States will travel 1,300 miles! <BR> <BR> <BR> This is one of many reasons that environmentalists and nutritionists alike recommend eating locally grown food as much as possible. <BR> <BR> <BR> <em>40</em> chris Mon, 28 Jul 2014 13:31:57 EST Day 3 of Elimination/Rotation Diet Plan (based on food insensitivities) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5748275 Breakfast: almond breeze and apricots in a blender. <em>30</em> <BR> <BR> Lunch: Kidney beans, corn, quinoa, cardamom (Tomatoes , rice, onions, not listed for today-darn) <BR> <BR> Dinner: Pork tenderloin, peas, canola oil, dill weed.

Mon, 28 Jul 2014 13:18:44 EST A very, very strange mixture for an evening snack. End of Day 2. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5747698 I am so tired of dealing with foods that for my evening snack, I took all the foods I had left (that I had planned for today) and threw them in one bowl. <BR> <BR> So my evening snack is a bowl of cauliflower, hazelnuts, blueberries, red lentils and paprika! <BR> <BR> I had planned to make two snacks form this but I just lost patience and trew it all together! <BR> <BR> chris Sun, 27 Jul 2014 19:21:26 EST Well Day 2 is way harder than Day1 on my food sensitivity rotation diet. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5747589 At least I am only eating the things on my list. I am having an afternoon snack. Not what I would have picked for sure. I planned a snack of eggs (egg beaters) and zucchini. Not too appetizing . I had cooked spaghetti squash that I had not eaten yesterday. I sprayed a pan with pam, heated the spaghetti squash and later added the eggs, like scrambled eggs. But it looked flavorless. I noticed basil was OK for ay 2 so I added basil. The result was not bad. <BR> <BR> Now, I would have chosen s...
