Week 3 This week on Tuesday, In my food log, I had 92% of my grains, 0% of my veggies, 8% of my fruit, 137% of my milk and yogurt, and 83% of my protein. I don't think I got enough veggies or fruits. To change this, I could maybe have a salad instead of Halloween candy. I also need to focus on eating more whole grains instead of refined grains. I can do this by eating corn more often. I found that by logging in corn to my food log, it increased my whole grains to 21%!
This week Monday, I only had 35% whole grains 151% whole fruits, and 47% protein also 14% vegetables. I think that I did get my main intake of veggies because I only had carrots for lunch. This week when I went to Blufin, I skipped the salad and went straight to the pop rock shrimp. I am also working on eating lots of veggies after or before lunch and dinner.
This week I had 18% refined grains, 107% vegetables, 61% whole fruit, 17% milk and yogurt, and 140% protein. I think I only had 18% refined grains because I only had 2 slices of bread from my sandwich. I also think I only had 17% milk and yogurt because I put butter on peas and mashed potatoes. I think to increase my milk and yogurt intake I could have a yogurt for a snack. This week I will focus on eating whole grain bread instead of white bread to get rid of refined grains.
Week 1 This week I had 112% refined grains, 20% veggies, 125% fruit, 12% dairy, and 75% protein. I didn't eat very healthy this week. I will try to eat more dairy next week. I will also try to not eat as many refined grains. I can eat more dairy by having yogurt for breakfast.
This week I focused on eating more whole grains and veggies. I ate over 100% of whole grains and protein, 62% veggies, 77% fruit and 68% dairy. think it is this way because I passed on eating junk food and ate oatmeal for breakfast and pasta for lunch instead of refined grains. My realistic goal for this week is to keep a balanced food log like this week. I can do this by having a variety of food for lunch and dinner and not having food like pizza or nachos.
food Log:This week I ate exactly 100% fruit. I ate a tiny bit more veggies than last week with 51%. Next week I will want to continue eating more vegetables. My goal for next week is to get 100% whole grains. I will do this by eating popcorn and oatmeal.
This week I was low on veggies and fruit, I think I could have ate healthier this week and will try harder next week focusing more on what I eat. Although I was high on whole grains! Which was one of my goal I accomplished.
