I had to keep track of what I ate for a day for something, so I figured – why not take pictures and post a What I Ate Wednesday?
This is 1 scrambled egg with some swiss (Jarlsberg) and sauteed onions. I also had a slice of whole grain toast with butter, a pear (some of it is unpictured – I was snacking as I prepped the plate), some sliced tomato (from Maria’s garden in NJ – Maria is my Grammie’s caretaker), sauteed onions, and sauerkraut (homemade by Maria).
It was really delicious. I have been eating a lot of sauerkraut lately because Maria gave me a big container of it.
I also had an unpictured 1/2 cup of coffee with coconut creamer.

What did I eat yesterday? Let’s see…
Breakfast was a small bowl of brown rice with a fried egg on top, a baby persimmon, and a little tangerine. Also coffee of course.
Snack – my coworker brought me an apple from the farmers’ market! (Note – I don’t usually eat this much fruit because it makes me break out. It was kind of an accident. I’ve been getting up early since coming back from the trip and that means I get hungry earlier too, and fruit is a good go-to, quick snack for me… as long as I don’t have too much of it.)
Lunch – a big salad from Just Salad:
- romaine and mesclun base (extra lettuce please)
- a hard-boiled egg
- roasted butternut squash and roasted beets
- beans and corn
- broccoli and sun-dried tomatoes
- horseradish-chive dressing

What I Ate Wednesday
I had a nice day of eating Wednesday. This is happening more and more! I used to struggle a lot with how much I ate – I would eat too little, or too much, or overeat at night and feel sick – but lately I have been in a pretty good place with my eating habits. I still have days where I “feel fat” or feel the need to check myself in the mirror (to make sure I haven’t sprouted an extra head? who knows – how much can really change in a day) – but most of the time I am very much OK with myself as I am. I think it just comes with practice, like anything else.
Enough chit-chat, here is what I had:
- Cinnamon walnut bread (from the CSA) toast with butter; 2 slices of salami (Costco, heh); coffee of course; a calcium chew (Adora dark chocolate)
