The Way I Prefer To Eat
Tuesday, October 27, 2009
I enjoy All Bran for breakfast. I normally have half a cup with some fruit in it. Sometimes it will be a banana, other times kiwi, and still other times a frozen fruit. Once in a while I mix it up with yogurt for something different. What happens when I eat this way? I need to drink water. I feel thirsty and only water will quench the thirst. I also love oatmeal. When I make oatmeal I start off with some water and cut up an apple and boil it for a few minutes until the apple softens some.I leave the skin on the apple. I then add the dry oatmeal and allow it to cook. I add a teaspoon of honey or a bit of brown sugar to sweeten and also add cinnamon. Sometimes for something different I will add pumpkin spice. I find these two meals the most filling breakfasts for me.
For lunch I have a sandwich of some kind, usually low sodium salmon or egg salad. At times I will have left over beef or a lean burger.Sometimes I switch up and have peanut butter and banana. Once in a while I will cook up some whole wheat macaroni and add salmon. It all depends on how I feel at the time. I have yogurt or a glass of milk with it and some fruit.
For dinner, I enjoy salad. I normally cut up a cup full of fresh mushrooms, a cup of radishes, a dozen grape tomatoes and either spinach or romaine lettuce. I top it with cold pork and beans in molasses or some other variety, Sometimes I will use salmon instead as my topping. At times I will have a fish fillet, baked potato and two veggies, broccoli, cauliflower, or brussell sprouts
I have a chocolate or butterscotch pudding for dessert. Sometimes I dip fruit in it.
I seldom saute anything. I don't eat margarine or butter. I only have mayo when I make salmon or egg salad sandwiches. I have baked potatoes at times. One or two days a week I enjoy some beef.
I am seldom ever hungry after eating all day. I try to get 25 grams of fiber in my diet daily. I am a plain eater, I seldom use oils or dressings. When I eat healthy, this is the way I eat.
Would this be classed as a healthy diet?
