It may seem simple but I’ve read a few things that say keeping a food log can help you keep a better diet. This is a great article from health.com.
I think this is a great thing to do at the beginning of the year because it might be something that I want to keep going throughout the year.
So here’s my log for the day… maybe a little more personally than I want to be… but if I’m ashamed or embarrassed by how much I eat, then I should probably be changing my habits anyway.
Morning: Banana/Strawberry Smoothie with MALK, vanilla yogurt and spinach.
Afternoon: Farmhouse Salad; spinach, arugula, iceberg lettuce, goat cheese, tomatoes, onions, chicken and walnuts with red wine vinaigrette.
Evening: Cheese bread and Tomato Bisque with Gouda.
I also drank two ciders.
I think I was more conservative today because I was going to be doing this log… but hopefully that will be the benefit!
