Note: If the weather cooperates, I am going on vacation for 8 days where I may not have or want to be on the computer. However, I have been keeping track of my daily menu since last October in anticipation of starting this blog in December, as a way of making a habit of posting. So the next 8 days of menus are actually from November. If the fruit or veggie I list is out of season, feel free to substitute (See grapes below).

Last night (from Nov. 6th) we ate at an Asian Restaurant with two other couples and I realized that nobody eats OUT like me, either, so I thought I would put what I ate at the restaurant first to give you an idea of my restaurant menu. The meal was excellent!

Appetizer: Edamame beans, steamed & sprinkled with a little salt.  A couple of other people tried them.
Salad
: Garden salad with a zesty ginger dressingSoup: Miso soup with tofu & veggies
Entrée:
Steamed broccoli & snow peas with brown rice

Note: I actually did not need the entrée because the salad was huge and I think I should have saved the soup for after the entrée, since clear soups fill you up quickly, leaving little room for anything else. I will remember that for next time.

(Originally posted on Nov. 7th)
7 am– Warm water and lemon, small glass of a green smoothie from yesterday
8:30 a.m.- GF/DF toast with jam and Dandy Blend. (I make more lemon juice than I drink in the a.m. and drink more throughout the day, as well as plain filtered water.)

Off to Yin yoga, followed by a trip to the health food store where I munched on 2 small macaroons (gluten & dairy free by Jennnie’s.)

11:30 a.m.- Curried pea soup that I had frozen from the day I made it last week or 2 weeks ago. Celery stuffed with hoomus. Ginger snaps
3 p.m.
Went to a matinee to see The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest and ate a banana  and a piece of chocolate covered ginger after the movie.
5:30 p.m.
– Large salad with lettuce, tomato, cukes & sprouts. Baked sweet potato rings, black beans, and asparagus spears made on my cast iron skillet misted with olive oil.
8:30 p.m.
2 ginger snaps
9:15 p.m. grapes (Note: I eat only organic grapes, so when I posted this in Nov., they were still available. Not available in January, so sub. an apple or a pear.)
