There is no doubt that the level of food culture and creativity here is incredibly high, and that Cheftalk people could be described as "the aristocracy of cooking world" ;)
BUT, apart from the theory and the best of intentions...what do you REALLY eat in your everyday life? So, if you like you can take part in this small inquiry...if possible without CHEATING!

What did you eat (and drank) yesterday?


As for me:

Breakfast:
-1 cappuccino
-2 pears

Lunch:
-2 slices roasted turkey breast
-boiled green beans (an enormous amount!)
-1 banana
-mineral water

Dinner
-1 slice of spinach frittata
-1 piece of Pecorino cheese
-Tomato salad with EVOO and balsamic
-bread
-mixed fruit salad
-mineral water
-1 glass white wine
then I gave in to two handfuls of dried raisins...

Add to this a number of expresso cups (I never count them...) and a cup of japanese green tea before going to bed

If you're thinking that I want to create a good impression, consider that I'm on a preventive, before-Christmas diet ;)

Just for fun!

The portions for lunch are small.

Pozole is a mexican dish consisting of either goat or pork meat with hominy (white corn) - all cooked in broth with "mexican" spices.

Thanks for the compliments. HA!

Koko,

I wasn't referring to amounts; it was the combinations that made my stomach cringe :D :D :D
I'm a real weak sister.

Oh. I thought it was something like Gorgonzola, and was wondering how could you eat it with chopsticks. Definitely I have less class than you:)

I've been hitting the gym pretty hard for the last few months and keep a daily diary of my foods, but as a typical day:

Breakfast: 1 glass water, tea- plain, 2 egg white omelet, 2 sl whole wheat toast 1 t butter sub

snack: water, fist size portion of either tuna in water, lf cottage cheese and a piece of fruit or something similar.

lunch: water, usually a portion of leftover from the night before.
today was gumbo with b/l chix and turkey brst.

snack: water, apple/banana

dinner: water, protein supplement, creatine monohydrate (weight lifting supp) usually low fat and balanced between protein, carb and fat. But normal stuff. Plain burger, b/l chix brst, small amount of pasta, salad and vegetable. No extra salt.

dessert: tea-plain, small bowl of sherbert or dry cereal or rice cracker w/ 1 T peanut butter.

Believe it or not it's not a bad diet at all. I don't suffer and I'm rarely hungry, not to mention I am getting stronger and losing body fat!

Who has time for it?

Dinner:
Steel cut Irish oatmeal with leftover orange-stewed prunes purée and lavander honey
Green salad with cured olives, shaved peccorino, balsamic vinaigrette

Pathetic, isn't it? Keep in mind that I get up at 4AM because of my weird work schedule. I am currently underweight and not liking it. On my days off, I try to make up for it...

Unsure if I'm overstepping my bounds but alot of my students got their "reality" check when I assigned a nutrition project where they inventoried all - and I mean all - food intake for an entire week. The effort required a caloric, mineral, fat and vitamin breakdown. Did THAT assignment change their eating habits or what?!?!?

so I finished work at 6 in the morning, I went to Mcdonalds ( pardon the bad words please ). and I had an orange juice and a hashbrown with ketchup. Then I went to the YMYWCA, and swam laps for about an hour. After that I went to another Mcdonalds ( oops I did it again) for my real breakfast which consisted of a Cafe Mocha, Sausage Mcmuffin and hashbrown, and a raspberry yogurt muffin. Then I went home and slept until late evening ( because I had to work again thursday night). For dinner I roasted some chicken legs and served them with rice and green peas, then at work ( we're talking 2am friday now) I had a hamurger steak with teriyaki sauce, and left over rice and veggies from dinner at home. Probably not the best diet, but hey I don't do it all the time.

I've been on and off Graveyard shift since the middle of '99, more on than off though. I think it works out to something like 6 months off of them in the past three years.
