Whole foods diet, mostly

What the heck did we eat last week?  I’m almost sure we ate something…

I’m having a hard time remembering the beginning of the week.  On Thursday I kicked off an attempt to eat no processed food.  This means no pasta, no bread, no white rice, no packaged crap—basically all those foods that taste good but don’t offer much for nutrition.  I’ve done pretty well with it.  I fell off the wagon both Saturday and Sunday evenings, but overall I definitely have less junk in my diet.  I’ve been eating a lot of fruits and vegetables, as well as nuts/seeds, meats, and some very dark chocolate with no dairy and not much sugar.

Monday and Tuesday are a distant blur.

Wednesday: We went out.  It’s very annoying when you’re trying to eat dinner and trick-or-treaters keep interrupting.  Besides, we were already downtown because Miles wanted to trick-or-treat in Denny’s office.

Thursday: Steaks, sweet potatoes, and steamed broccoli.

Friday:  Rotisserie chicken (pre-rotissed), roasted red potatoes, and apples.

Tonight Denny grilled chicken, and I served it with baked beans (not totally unprocessed, but I got organic ones) and really good roasted broccoli the Internet told me about.

Tomorrow night will either be vegetable beef soup or some sort of crock pot pork situation.  I have lots of fruits and vegetables to go with it.

For Wednesday night I am very, very tentatively planning a post-election celebration dinner of linguine carbonara.  That is about a million miles away from my whole foods diet, but you’ve gotta live 80/20, man.  If my guy loses, I will be too busy crying to eat anything anyway.
