Picture Perfect Food

Finally, I got the camera to sync with the computer, so I thought I would post a few picture of what I ate Tuesday.

Breakfast was baked oatmeal with blackberries and walnuts.  This is how it looked dry.

Baked Oatmeal is one of my favorite breakfast cereals/foods.  I used to make it all the time, but stopped because the recipes I was using were full of oil, and I do mean FULL of oil.  I didn’t want all those calories, and my liver didn’t like all those saturated fats.  This recipe uses milk, egg, and about 3T of butter to create a whole pan (8×8) of moist, flavorful, hot breakfast that fills the house with a cinnamon aroma and calls everyone to the kitchen.  Yum!

For lunch, I had a chicken wrap Panini at a nearby restaurant, while hubs had a spicy Panini sandwich.  No picture of that to share, but it was likewise yummy. I ate part of the pickle spear that came with the whole wheat wrap, but left the chips on  the plate.

I’m a sugar addict, so savory and salty don’t call my name.

For supper, I ate this…

This is an 8 inch plate supper is served on, and the meal includes a half slice of whole wheat banana bread with mini chocolate chips, a handful of red grapes, a half cup of milk, and homemade stir fry, featuring cabbage, onion, bell pepper, garlic, potato, cauliflower, asparagus spears, chick peas, and tiny chunks of ham (about 1 cup to make 6 servings), with a lil bit of soy sauce over top.  I stir fried the veggies in a tablespoon of coconut oil, which is why it glistens so much.  The cup with the milk in it is a children size tumbler, so while it looks like there is more milk in it, it’s really only about 1/2 cup, maybe less.

I did 60 minutes on the bike after supper this night.  I was sore afterward, lower back issues, but it felt good to have gotten through the day with good eats and exercise behind me.  I was in bed by 10pm, and slept well.

I thought it would feel weird to blog about my food, and to share what I ate here, but it doesn’t feel that way.  At least not right now.  I’m trying everyday, to make changes that will last for a lifetime.  Learning how to portion my food, choose the right foods to heal my body, and abstain from eating too often can only benefit me in the long run.

What about you, what did you eat today?  Which foods make you feel full and satisfied? Which ones don’t?
