It's Hard To Come Down From the Mountaintop

Wow, after last weekend, my own food seems really, really boring. But as Fruitgirl says, if you wanted drama, you'd rent a video.

Today's entry will be boring and non-philosophical because I'm trying to get ready for a big meeting with a lot of nurses tomorrow and doing a zillion other things at once.

Pure food-related content today:

Ran out of eggwhites, so ate 3 cottage cheese snack packs for a total of 240 calories, 33 g protein, and tons of calcium.

salad of romaine lettuce and baby carrots

small serving of black bean soup (leftover from yesterday's lunch)

coffee, as always

tons of water

tonight for dinner: brewers yeast soup with broccoli and cauiliflower

200 calories of hazelnuts

glass of red wine

total: 1051 calories
P:F:C = 30:23:47
72% Iron, 60% Zinc, the rest is all over 100%

I am now taking a brand new powdered multi vitamin from AOR called Essential Mix. It tastes like a sweet tart candy in cake mix form, and I seem to be able to make a teaspoon of it into an entire dessert. I do not work for a supplement company, so I don't have to put any disclaimers at all into this product placement.

    if all you wrote was eggwhitescottagecheeseskinnylatteasparaguswhey
    every single day, i'd still be intrigued. if all mary could eat was chicken and dried mangos, i'd still love reading about that too.

    but here's a quandry: is there a most nutrient dense food for all? if so, what?
    or does it differ by individual? if so, what is yours?

    p.s. how is the protien powder in the latte? i'm switching 1/2 time from latte to green tea. we'll see how THAT goes.
