Today's Food

Well, I wasn't laying when I was telling you that I have been eating the same thing every day - YUM. Not sick of it yet. Today I treated myself to a Joan's english muffin (due to the crappy weather!) with canadian bacon, a fried egg, and TWO slices of cheese :) Also with it - my morning cup of tea... and you can just barely make out our tree in the background. I try to watch at least half an hour of the Today Show in the morning and enjoy my breakfast & tea. This is the reason I am almost always late to work.

I also try to pack up my lunch & snacks every day. If you recall WAY back when I started writing again on this blog - I was on a mission to loose some weight, which I did, and kept off, but I'm still not at my goal... anyway - I was doing the ABS Diet - which was perfect for me. You basically eat lots of snacks & try to get a good balance of food at eat meal & snack. The only thing I'm cheating with here might be the TJ's Meringues - but they are PERFECT for my tiny sweet cravings, and 4 of them is only 100 calories, and 0 grams of fat (they are mostly air).

So here is my lunch & snacks for the day.... an orange, a salad & some dressing, a bag of almonds, some leftover Tinkyada pasta mixed with broccoli, cauliflower & lite trader joes shredded cheese, 3 meringues, and a slice of Light Laughing Cow Garlic & Herb cheese ( I spread this on rice cakes for a late day snack - I keep the rice cakes in my desk).

And there you have it.... do you guys eat like this? Grazers? Or one meal at lunch & maybe 1 snack?

I love Laughing Cows!!! I just had one for an afternoon snack. When I was diagnosed with Celiac my doctor also diagnosed me with Metabolic Syndrome (groan). So I'm trying to eat 5 small meals a day. It's hard when you have a full time job, but it does keep your sugar at an even level.

Eating small meals is better for you for a variety of reasons. It's easier on your digestive tract and it's easy to maintain optimal weight. The thing I notice when I eat alot of small meals, is that I never feel hungry. So, as much as possible I opt for several small meals.
