I eat a lot of fiber daily. It is part of my overall food plan (I hate the word diet) and this past week (and now) I have been sick. Just a virus/maybe strep. So my doctor has advised me to not have fiber this week until my body heals. I agreed to cut down the fiber, but the fact is, I can't cut it out totally. So instead of eating 35-40g a day, I have had like 5-10g today.

Normal: 10g breakfast, 5-10g snack, 5g lunch, 5g snack, 5g supper, and 5g snack

After seeing the doctor yesterday, I had to go to the grocery store next door as most of the food I had at home has high fiber in it. Due to my weakness/soreness, it took me over an hour to get $36 worth of food. On top of that my blood sugar was crashing, I hadn't eaten lunch (as I had nothing to eat now that I couldn't have my spinach salad) and all I had with me was an apple. Lots of fiber in apples.

I had been planning on making and having a variety of hummuses (hummai?) this coming week but that is out of the question. I eat salads almost every day for lunch and those are out for the near future. I don't know what to eat.

I eat a lot of fresh fruit and veggies and beans in my food plan as this is a good way to eat all the fiber that I need to eat. Now I can't. I had a baked skinless apple earlier with 1T sunflower butter --yeah I know, fiber. I can't NOT eat it. I was rewarded with sick in the ladies room.

So I am at a loss as to what I can eat. Today has been hard. I feel gross and I feel that I can't eat my food. I feel logy and my carbs are over my limit. The doctor ordered me to RELAX AND EAT and it is just for a few days. I am trying to listen to her.

So that is my whinybuttness. I want to have a healthy lunch, I strive to have a healthy lunch. Know what I had for lunch? 2 slices of cheese pizza. Yeah.

Where I'm At

I am here. I was in Colorado eating what I wanted and enjoying it. I had some medical issues but am okay now. Some were food related some were not.

So onto some healthy lunches. I now have a working camera and if I can get my (smaller) butt into gear and coordinate taking the pictures of said healthy lunches I could get this blog working for me. Ultimately, I would love to publish a cookbook.

So until then...

Today I had a great lunch:

1 sandwich thin (2 halves)
1 1/2 turkey meatloaf, crumbled
2T tomato sauce
1oz shredded mozzarella cheese

Calorie count 392
Carb count 26

Calories and carbs are the only counts that I am paying attention to right now but if this thing takes off the ground, I may add more to make it more rounded.

It was super tasty and it helped with my craving for a big meatball sub
