Food Diary?

by Kelli H. on February 8, 2011

David and I have been trying to eat healthier. No, not for the new year or anything like that.  David is really the one behind it as he wants to start “cutting”.  That sounds terrible but cutting fat off his body.  I’m here to support him by cooking dinners that aren’t so high in carbs and have healthy fats like olive oil and coconut oil. We’re trying to incorporate more veggies and fruits.  We’ve been drinking fruit smoothies for a couple month now and love them.  David’s been tracking his diet on some website that calculates all the calories and breaks everything down for him.  I was thinking about maybe making a food diary on here since my cooking blog hasn’t really taken off.  I feel like the little free time I have after work and my Excel class I don’t want to spend uploading pictures every night or every few days of what I’m cooking…Although, maybe I’ll still do that.  For right now I think i’ll start with documenting what I’m ingesting.

1/2 C cooked old fashioned oats with a sprinkle of shredded coconut, sliced almonds, & pumpkin seeds. Mixed in 1 Tbs. of brown sugar and 1 Tbs of milk.

Oats & Nut bread with 1 side of mayo, 1 side of Dijon mustard, 3 slices peppered turkey, lettuce, pickle, red onion, S & P

Chicken Paprikaish meal from Rachael Ray. Sliced thin chicken breast stir fried with garlic, bell pepper, onion, chicken broth, paprika, corn starch, S & P. Served with a large serving of blanch broccoli.

Fruit smoothie containing oatmeal, milk, yogurt, strawberries, blueberries, banana.

I doubt i’ll actually stick with writing all this down but I think my diet (not that I’m dieting but what is in my diet) overall is pretty healthy for a 23 year old.

Yikes, tell him I said be careful w/those sites..I had the Lose It app for awhile and it really messed with me—got kind of addicting, you know? As for healthy cooking, I’d get your hands on Heidi Swanson (from’s new book Supernatural Everyday or Mark Bittman’s The Food Matters Cookbook. The latter being something I go back to again and again. And is always good too!

I’ve made a lentil soup from 101cookbooks. I really liked it! Mark Bittman has recipes in Cooking Light magazine but I don’t think I’ve made any of his yet. David stopped using that site already. haha, didn’t last too long!
