I’m a big believer in food journaling but I think the key is to figure out what works for you so you can stick to it long term without it feeling like work. I started with pen and paper, moved to email then started keeping it online in other ways. For a more detailed history of my food journaling check out this podcast. I give a bit of my history and thoughts about it.
As I said in yesterday’s post, I just haven’t found my food journaling groove yet. I have no fear I’ll figure out a system that works for me. I just need to try a few ways on for size. Today I went with a simple photo approach using my phone and twitter account.
I decided to see how hard it would be to simply snap a photo of what I eat and shoot it out to the @RonisFood twitter account. Here’s the photos I shot today..
Breakfast was a 2 egg omelet with onion, peppers, spinach and bacon bits. And of course a grapefruit on the side. :)
Lunch was an Overstuffed Cheesy Taco Wrap with a side of carrot sticks.
While working this afternoon I grabbed a yogurt.
And then when little guy came home from school we each had a granola bar.
We went out to dinner and of COURSE I forgot my phone. I ended up having the special which was a seafood risotto dish with butternut squash and marinara sauce. It was so pretty I wish I could show you. :(
Oh! I did totally stay away from the bread basket and I was really proud of myself for that. I was overindulging a bit on bread throughout the pregnancy. Honestly, it’s something I really have to watch as it’s so easy for me to go overboard with.
At night I ate my latest snack obsession, Pop Corners. I’ve been meaning to write a review about them. These things are great! SO great I really can’t be trusted around them, I tend to go overboard.
That was it for the day. I’m going to give it another shot tomorrow which will be a good test as I’ll be traveling to NY for a baby shower.
OK gotta run.. someone else needs to eat. ;)
