What I eat

Friday, April 30, 2010 at 10:33 AM filed under Diet & Nutrition postings
Breakfast is the largest part of my diet. I space it out though so by mid morning I'm done with it. Basically it's a smoothie made with 3-4 bananas, 4 pitted dates, 1 1/2 cup strawberries, and 1/2 cup almonds (ground to a powder). That's about 1060 calories right there!

Lunch is usually pretty light. Since I had such a heavy breakfast I go a little easy on myself. I'll usually have some sort of melon (entire melon) or maybe a few mangos with grapes. Something that is easy to digest. (about 300 - 400 calories)

As a snack I might have some mango or bananas. Something simple to carry me to dinner. (about 100 calories)

For dinner I'll have a collard wrap, tomato bowl, or some other raw veggie dish. (100-200 calories)

For desert I might have whatever I didn't finish for lunch or a fruit salad or whatnot. (about 100 calories)

That gives me 1600-1800 calories. Sometimes I don't finish my breakfast and on those days I'm closer to 1400 calories total.

I try to keep my calories below 1900. I work out nearly every day and so my net calories are always negative. Odd thing is that I'm losing more weight this way than when I was just trying to get around 1200-1500 calories.

The only overt fats I'm getting are from the almonds. I don't eat them every day though and on the days I don't my breakfast calories are 400 calories lighter. I try to stay away from the fatty raw foods like nuts and avocado.

I'm so curious what a blood test would show when it comes to nutrition. I know I get enough nutrients. But I would love a test so people don't continually say that I"m not healthy because I'm not eating meat and drinking milk. lol
