We are a worldwide social network of freethinkers, atheists, agnostics and secular humanists.

This is partially for fun, partially to learn about one another, and partially to examine the way we eat.

 

I think I tend to eat pretty well, but I still have a hell of a time managing my weight. That is not to say that I never eat chocolate or ice cream, but I do cook for myself a lot and I eat my veggies, too.

 

So the idea here is for participants to list what they had for lunch each day (or as often as you think to post it) so that we can 1.) examine what we eat and compare it to others habits and choices, 2.) to learn about each other, and 3.) learn about new food choices or new ways of eating (or even portion control).

 

I don't know if this will be useful or successful, but it might be worth a try. You don't have to write a lot, just list what you ate. Well then see if this sparks questions or conversation.

I'll go first.

 

2011.07.05 - Tuesday

Half of a grilled butterfly pork loin chop marinated in extra-virgin olive oil and dried oregano leaves

Steamed broccoflower

Two slices of grilled orange bell pepper tossed in flaxseed oil

Baked sweet potato

Half a glass of organic vegetable juice

Water

 

(With all these pork chops, I usually buy one butterly porkchop, cut it in half and then butterfly it again. The ones they sell at the butcher shop are just too large for one serving. Also, when I grill bell pepper I slice it into rings, and can usually get about 4 or 5 rings per pepper)

My lunch today:

 

Roasted vegetables soup (tasty, a bit too salty).

From the salad bar, I picked the following into a small plastic container (yeah, the waste of pladtic drives me crazy):

garbanzo bean salad

tabouleh

spicy noodles salad

 

I drank: water from the fountain (I have a metal bottle)

 

I will be running 6 miles when I get home tonight so I'll need a mid afternoon snack to refuel myself. I'll eat a banana at ~ 4:30 PM.

I'm not a fan of veggie soups because I can't stand cooked celery for some reason. If it's well hidden that's fine (like part of a puree), but if it isn't, the taste and smell just put me right off of it. Kind of odd. Cucumbers are the same way. If I'm served a salad with even a few pieces of cucumber on it, I can't really enjoy it.

 

I like garbanzo bean salad though.

 

Next time you make hummus, use lime juice instead of lemon juice. You won't regret it.

I ate leftovers...

 

Lunch

vegetable fried rice

a mixed green salad with my home-make asian dressing <yummm

home brewed Iced tea

 

Afternoon snack

fruit smoothie - from frozen strawberries, bananas, yogurt, honey and crushed ice.

 

Hope others share their lunch menu, this is interesting.... 

Yes, I do hope this proves to be interesting.

My lunch today (I'm eating it now):

 

Gazpacho

yellow rice

Swiss Chard

 

Not sure what I'll have for afternoon snack. Probably a Clif bar or a little packet of nuts.

Yellow rice? Flavored with saffron? I've never had Swiss chard. Are you eating it raw or cooked?

Yes, saffron rice. You can't eat Swiss chard raw, not very digestible. This one was sauteed with olive oil and a little garlic. If you cook it yourself, remove the toughest part of the stalk, chop the leaves up coarsely, saute the garlic in olive oil for a minute r two, then add the chopped chard; you'll need to add a little water, and stir the leaves to turn them over, a few times; it takes ~10-15 minutes for the leaves to be done.

 

Gazpacho has no celery, it's a veggie soup you may like.

 

I did not cook any of this, I got it from the cafeteria.

Wow, 10 minutes to cook. It must be more like cabbage than spinach.

 

I've had gazpacho before, and oddly enough, I'm not wild about it either. Not sure why, because I eat raw and cooked tomatoes ALL THE TIME, but gazpacho just does not do it for me.

That's quite the cafeteria you have at work, good choices. 

 

Having spent so much time in different hospitals in my life, it's amazing how poor their cafeterias often are.  The food choices are crappy, greasy, overcooked, in general very unhealthy.  Basic salads, yogurt, some soggy vegetable side dishes are available, but vegetarian choices are extremely limited. 

Yes, our cafeteria is great, there are many choices.  They even have veggie burgers, every day, and also one veggie soup and a meat soup. Plus I get a discount as an employee.

I'm eating basically the same thing today. I generally prepare a weeks worth of veggies for the office, and eat off of it all week.
