That's today's topic.
I have been documenting my daily food intake, on and off, for years. I have used a plain old notebook, notes on my cellphone, an app, back to the old notebook, back to a different app... I haven't documented my food in a good few months but yesterday I decided to take it up again. I have the time, I have the ability to cook for myself, to set up a meal plan, to go out and exercise. I may as well make sure that I am not over doing or under doing it. When we have hours to kill, it's super easy to use food to fill up the time.
So what did I eat yesterday?
7:30 am - Breakfast
1 cup of goat yogurt, 2 tbsp homemade granola, 1 tbsp mixed seeds, 1 tbsp natural peanut butter and 1 banana
10:30 am - Snack #1 of the day
Clementine and a cup of tea
13:00 - Lunch
2 egg omelette, sauteed zucchini and onion, 1 small avocado, 2 tbsp tehina paste, 2 slices of toasted spelt sourdough bread
Dessert - 2 almond/rice flour cookies, handful of spelt pretzels, dandelion tea
16:30 - 3 pieces of a pomelo, 1 cup of rice with carrots and celery
19:30 - rice with carrots and celery, 4 meatballs baked in the oven, vegetable soup.
Dessert - tea and 2 almond/rice flours cookies
Almost 3 liters of water today. I added lemon juice freshly squeezed from the lemons I picked this morning :)
I have been taking oregano oil every morning for many years. I started taking it when I had a lot of stomach issues and it really helped my body come back into a balance. Oregano oil is very strong, the type I take is already diluted in olive oil and then I add it to a shot glass of water and take that every morning with breakfast.
Oregano oil is a natural antibiotic, anti-fungal, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, an insect repellent and also tastes good in your food :)
If anyone needs tips on where to get oregano oil or any of the other supplements I will be discussing, please don't hesitate to be ask!
