Nutrition & Food Logs

(click on image for larger picture)

I almost titled this post "Food" but I noticed the trainer talks in terms of "nutrition" and less so "diet". It's an emphasis on the positive - providing the right mix of fuel. Diet has such connotations of deprivation.

Anyhow, I ran into a friend at the gym whom I was telling about SparkPeople and he was asking what I ate. I thought I'd post three of my better days of food logs to share the types of things I eat and I am likewise interested in the favorite types of foods and meals of others. I can get in a rut eating very similar kinds of things.

The two keys for me seem to be pre-planning my food for the day to drastically reduce the likelihood of bad impulsive choices, and to keep my meals really simple with a mix of food groups.
