Lightbulb Food Diary - What did you eat today?

I think it is a good idea to start a food diary thread, because it will keep people motivated to eat nutritiously, and we can support and encourage those when they aren't eating so well...although...
Perhaps today wasn't the best day to begin this coz I have eaten soooooo much crap

Anyway, cancer is huge in my family, so eating to protect my body is my number 1 (food) priority. I am not obsessive - I like my chocolate . I try to eat lots of fruits, vegetables (especially green leafy), beans, rice, wholemeal bread, oats, almonds, skim milk, fat free natural yoghurt (I like Jalna), low fat cheeses, salmon and tuna. I don't eat poultry, game, beef, lamb, veal or pork - not for health - it just grosses me out.

B: oats w/ skim milk (I had blueberries as well, but they tasted wierd and I didn't eat them). A tub of wildberry yoghurt
S: mango & nectarine
L: roll w/ peanut butter. tub of yoghurt. handful of almonds. milkyway chocolate. 3 lollies
S: 3 rice cakes and lots of clix biscuit things
D: spinach & cheese pie w/ ketchup. chickpea salad.
S: "caramello koala milkshake" made w/ a caramello koala, ice cream & skinny milk.

There was hardly any food in the house, and I just went shopping, so no excuses for crappy food tomorrow!

note from the moderator:

Diary and journal posts cannot be allowed any more. Long posts are slowing the search function and therefore the server, slowing the website for everyone.

Rather than to create long threads, post individually on your personal health issue. Try to interact with all members by looking for and replying to posts with no or few replies.

Moderators will close or split long threads.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Re: Food Diary - What did you eat today?

Baked Donuts (14 servings)

2 packages yeast
1/4 cup warm water
1 1/2 cups milk - scalded then cooled to room temperature
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
2 eggs
1/3 cup vegetable shortening
4 and 1/2 cups flour
1/4 cup melted butter
40/60 mix of cinnamon and sugar for topping

In large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add milk, next six ingredients and 2 cups of the flour. Blend for 30 seconds, scraping the bowl constantly. Beat 2 minutes at medium speed. Stir in remaining flour until smooth. Cover and let rise until double in size, about 1 hour.

Turn dough onto a well-floured board. Roll dough around to coat with flour. (Dough will be soft.) Cut with floured doughnut cutter or cans. Lift carefully with spatula and place 2 inches apart on greased baking sheet. Brush with melted margarine. Cover and let rise until doubled (about 20 minutes).

Bake 8 to 10 minutes at 425 degrees F or until golden.

Immediately brush with melted margarine and shake in cinnamon sugar.

*that's the original recipe...i changed some of the ingredients to make it more healthy, like skim milk--pastry wheat flour (makes it a lot more dense and "nutty" flavored)--splenda sugar or splenda sugar for baking--applesauce instead of shortening--egg beaters--light/nonfat butter or margarine

I'm SURE by making too many substitutions the recipe won't be as tasty as the original, but when i made mine they were yummy!
