(from book 2 - onions, garlic, olive oil, honey)

My plan is:

Breakfast:
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

Snack:
NF plain organic yogurt with blackberries

Lunch:
Ultimate meal shake with unsweetened soy milk
Salad with Romain lettuce, olives, tomatoes, cucumbers, mushrooms and carrots.

Snack:
Carrots with laughing cow wedge

Dinner:
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.

WaterRat 07-31-2006 02:30 PM

Ah, I've only just started counting these.

B'fast:
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:

S1:
grande nf latte

S2:
hard boiled egg

Lunch:
turkey breast (SF) on whole grain wheat with mustard and avocado (SF)
tomato

S3:
Cameo apple, (edit: this had a large spoiled spot inside - ick! only ate 1/3); wedge of lf cheese

Dinner:
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!

Jen415 07-31-2006 02:49 PM

Hey gals! do you think this should be a daily thread?

phantastica 07-31-2006 03:39 PM

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

joyofsix 07-31-2006 04:04 PM

If all goes as planned today:
Oats
apples
cherries/blueberries
evoo
garlic/onion
sweetpotato
tea
dark greens, romaine, spinach
tomato
almonds
dark chocolate

So 11 super foods, which considering I'm just eating the stuff I have on hand is pretty good.

olivia627 07-31-2006 07:57 PM

Total Calories: 1505

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!

hockeyfan7 08-01-2006 02:26 PM
