Picture Perfect Food

Tuesday, March 16

I’m already starting to see that for some reason or other my food doesn’t look as pretty as Meg’s on the Be Fit Be Full blog. I’d like to think it’s the camera, but I think it has more to do with the food she is eating.

Exercise: Walk 4 miles in 1 hour, 1 hour of Pilates on the Reformer

Breakfast: 2 packets of cinnamon spice instant oatmeal (again)
Snack: Banana smothered in all-natural, no sugar added peanut butter (bought the wrong kind so it is gritty, not smooth, but I’m working my way through it.)
Lunch: Goat cheese salad from Whole Foods–pre-made, a little pricey, but worth it to me for the convenience and I love it. (I only use 3 of the 4 pieces of goat cheese they give you. I save the extra piece for Thursday…you’ll have to read on Thursday to find out why.)
Snack: Granny smith apple (forgot to take a picture)
Dinner: A St. Patty’s Day Feast (corn beef and cabbage, Irish soda bread, carrots, etc.)
Dessert: 1/2 a vanilla caramel and 1/2 a salted caramel

What I wanted: M&M’s. In truth, I didn’t want them. My parents (where I go for Tuesday night dinner, which we’ve been having as long as I can remember) have a M&M machine that drops handfuls of M&M’s into a little metal bucket that you then toss into your hand and your mouth. I often grab a couple handfuls without thinking. I really didn’t have any because taking a picture seemed like too much of a pain to make eating them worth it. But that seemed to be a good thing. I wasn’t eating something I didn’t need because I didn’t want to have to take a picture.

Also, I normally would have had an actual dessert, but I ate so much I couldn’t. It is rare for me to pass on dessert.
