Suzanne Johnson, Day 4
Sunday, 19 October 2014
I ate another apple today, it was the bomb! I still have a headache and my appetite is suppressed now. It was not problem to go from eating two pieces of toast at 8:00 am until 12:30 before I snacked on an apple and then about 2:00 when I had some lunch. I mixed the last of my beans mixed with tomatoes (I still have plain beans) with a packaged of the ramen noodles and was only able to eat half of the plate. I normally could have eaten it all.
I poured myself a glass of chocolate milk and my daughter asked for it, so I gave it to her.
I have been tracking my food take with the Dietitians of Canada Eatracker.ca tool and realized that if I actually use the flavour package in my noodles, I am getting two to three times the Daily recommended intake for sodium. I have either been tossing the flavour out or using half a package so in actuality I am managing my sodium intake a little better.
I have to say that I just don’t have the energy that I should, a walk up the stairs in my two level home causes my muscles to burn for a few seconds.
So what I am noticing now is that what I really miss is the little things. Like all of those little things that you add to food to make it taste good. Having something that had taste was part of my rationale for choosing ramen noodles. Salt is much cheaper than anything else that we might use to make food taste good such as herbs, spices, vinegars …..
