On Tuesday, I tracked my eats in terms of categories and this is what I totaled: less than one serving of leafy greens, one fruit, one high fat whole food, 7 (?!) whole grains, and one "does not fit into a category". This is the food you see nearly everyday on this blog. Apparently, I like my carbs.
So what did I eat? Baked oatmeal with pb, an orange, collard greens (garlic, onion, tomato paste mixed in while sauteed), wild rice, spaghetti with garlic marinara and meatless meatballs.
Would you believe I've actually had this info-graphic in my possession? Taped on the refrigerator? For seven months? WTF, Ingrid?!
Needless to say, when I go grocery shopping this weekend I will buy (and show you) impressive amounts of vegetables. I don't eat beans every often, so we'll see about how much I add. It'll be hard to cut back on nuts, nut butters, my beloved cashew cream and avocados.
I should mention that Julieanna Hever has an updated food guide, but I find pie charts (especially this one) too confusing. I like the pyramid above much better.
I'll still eat what it's in my freezer and cupboards on occasion, as I don't like to be wasteful. Unless it tastes bad, then I'll gift it to the squirrels.
