after my posts on attempting to eat as little sugar as possible and why (onetwothreefour) one of the common questions was would i show what i eat on a daily basis. what follows is my best attempt...

(just for a point of reference, i ate the entire avocado. and i always toast the nuts i eat--always!--it brings out their flavor in new and exciting ways).


(i was due for a free momofuku latte, so i got myself a big iced one on the way to the grocery store. i average about two lattes per day).

(ancient harvest quinoa pasta with chopped tomatoes and about a tablespoon of pesto sauce. i have found that in drastically cutting back on sugar food products with nuts built into them always taste sweet in a really exciting way--the pesto {which has pine nuts in it} was a delightfully sweet treat and yet it had no sugar in it {i checked the label}).

(sometimes at the end of the day, or even in the middle of the day, i'll boil some water and let it cool before pouring it into a mug and adding two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar. i always use the Bragg brand--and i shake before using. i don't do this often--i'd like to do it more. usually it's done when i'm digging my heels in and trying to be make really positive choices).


(not pictured: about two handfuls of pita chips between lunch and dinner and a slice of toast with butter quite late into the night {i couldn't sleep}).

my goal is to show you what i eat over the course of seven days (i imagine a few dining companions will be surprised when i photograph everything i eat, but...such is life). so keep your eyes open for that. and keep the questions coming...
