SuperFoods! How many did you eat today?
FIVE so far!
Only 9 yesterday. Mostly at breakfast.. I'm working on today.
1 c. Fibre one with 1/2 c. 2% milk
two slices of Nature's Own whole wheat bread w/ 1T peanut butter (SF)
Leftovers (3 oz chicken, 1 c. mashed cauliflower, 1/2 c. mixture of green peas, lima beans and corn, and 1/2 sweet potato--all SF except corn)
This is the plan:
non fat yogurt
1/2 teaspoon honey
low fat string cheese
salmon salad (onions, pickle, low fat mayo)
whole wheat pita
orange pepper strips
left over stir fry - tofu, onions, garlic, shitake mushrooms, red pepper, broccoli, carrots, spinach
lots of tea
super foods 11!!- tea, salmon, tofu, broccoli, brown rice/whole wheat pita/muesli, yogurt, blueberries/cherries/dried cranberries, carrots/orange peppers, tomatoes/grape tomatoes, almonds, spinach
(from book 2 - onions, garlic, olive oil, honey)
My plan is:
Ultimate meal shake (according to the ingredient list, it contains 6 superfoods in it and other good stuff, I count as 1 superfood) with unsweetened soy milk
NF plain organic yogurt with blackberries
Ultimate meal shake with unsweetened soy milk
Salad with Romain lettuce, olives, tomatoes, cucumbers, mushrooms and carrots.
Carrots with laughing cow wedge
Chicken, rice, beans, grilled veggies and a salad
So with my plan, I should have around 17 superfoods (some repeats such as carrots and my shake).
Oops, forgot to add that I will be drinking various forms of tea throughout the day so that should count as an additional superfood. Also I forgot about dessert which will probably be dark chocolate... So maybe around 20 superfoods today with repeats.
Ah, I've only just started counting these.
1/2 cup cottage cheese with 1/4 c raspberries (SF) and 1/4 c blueberries (SF)
whole grain wheat toast
1 TBSP natural PB (SF) I'm liking this better all the time BTW, bye-bye Jif :lol:
grande nf latte
hard boiled egg
turkey breast (SF) on whole grain wheat with mustard and avocado (SF)
Cameo apple, (edit: this had a large spoiled spot inside - ick! only ate 1/3); wedge of lf cheese
Hmmmm, depends if DH is home or at his yoga class - he was undecided when I left for work. If he's home I'll likely make a chicken stir-fry; if he's gone, I'll finish up the salmon manicotti with a spinach salad.
He'll be gone the rest of the week, which in a way makes meal-planning easier, though it also makes just grazing on junk easier too. :shrug: Need to plan and hold myself to it!
Hey gals! do you think this should be a daily thread?
Yes, I do, Jen! I was thinking daily menus would also be fun, so we know what other ... um, "superfoodists" eat on a daily basis. I link to fitday on my profile, but I'd hardly consider myself a shining example just yet.
B: peanut butter, orange
L: strawberries, broccoli, purple onion, garlic
D: chicken, tomato (soup), kale, dark chocolate, corn
Eleven foods today.
Yesterday I had eight: yogurt, cherries, flaxseed, salmon, broccoli, tomato, onion, garlic
P.S. I love our little home, here! :D
If all goes as planned today:
dark greens, romaine, spinach
So 11 super foods, which considering I'm just eating the stuff I have on hand is pretty good.
Okay, I went a little off of my 'plan' for the day, but here goes:
oat topping (oats, nuts, honey, oil, cinnamon, nutmeg)
granny smith apple
natural peanut butter
salad with sauteed shrimp & Lite Asian Sesame dressing
oven roasted asparagus & cherry tomatoes, cooked in olive oil
salmon cakes (made with salmon, bread crumbs, onion, egg & spices-my own experiment gone GREAT!)
square of dark chocolate
Total Calories: 1505
Total SuperFoods: 15 (I think...I can't count right now!)
onion + green onions
kimchi (my own super food for yogurt category)
chestnuts + pine nuts (in a rice dessert)
raisins (in same dessert)
Not a great super foods day for me... but not bad.. I didn't eat much today.
Today for me
oatmeal with wheatgerm and raisins
whole wheat spaghetti w/tomato based sauce,garlic,onions,mushrooms and meatballs
jambalaya brown rice, chicken breast, shrimp, tomatoes, onion, lots of garlic, evoo
4 serv of oats
1 green tea
1 chicken breast (turkey)
1 raisin (blueberry)
so 8 different kinds with 14 serv not a great super food day but not bad either.
Hi all, I'm slowing trying to incorporate more whole, super foods into my diet. Yesterday was:
Bfast: Steel-cut oats/ Cranberries
Lunch: Salmon/ Spinach/Evoo/Cherries/Yogurt
Snack: Sunflower Seeds/Black Tea
Dinner: Soy breakfast sausage
I think that's 9!
Allikat, that's GREAT! Just getting some of them in will make a huge impact on how you feel physically! Atleast, that's been my experience thus far. Keep it going...looks real good!
Hi! I really like the idea of the superfoods -- great nutrition
Today so far I have had:
I've been trying to follow the guy from Harvard's School of Diet and Nutrition's super foods eating plan every day.
