food inc. made me vomit.

I haven't updated in forever.  But alas, I am back.  I mustn't tell a lie, I have been horrifically (is that a word?) busy.  I completed a literature review, three midterms within the last week, and I am now finishing up a policy analysis paper.  And then SPRING BREAK!  After Spring Break, I plan to update this thing more often (that is, if I don't start my internship soon).

Any way, today's agenda: (Sorry for the crappy pictures.  My camera just broke...ahem, three months ago lol, so I've been snapping pictures with my phone)

Pre workout meal: (Sorry, no picture.  I was in a rush to get to the gym before all of the people that are trying to get in shape for Spring Break woke up lol)
2 slices of Trader Joe's Sprouted Grain Bread
61 g of egg beaters
1 TSP of honey on one slice
1 TBSP of Walden Farms Blueberry Spread on the other

3 sets of 10 Bicep curls on each arm with 8lb dumbbell
3 Sets of 10 Glute/hamstring machine
(I know, not much for strength training today lol)
40 minutes on elliptical, 5 minute cool down

Post workout meal:

(Not nearly as pretty as Erica's, but it was DELICIOUS)
But I used:
Only 1 tablespoon of flaxseed meal
Like 9g of Jay Robb Vanilla Whey Protein powder (I know right, skimpy little 9g.  But I'm almost out and I'm trying to make it last lol)
1 TBSP of MimicCreme Unsweetend Creamer
1 TBSP of Unsweetened Original Almond Breeze
1 TBSP of Walden Farms Pancake Syrup
7 g frozen blueberries
1 packet of Truvia

My version of the infamous CrackSlaw

170 g Dole Cole Slaw Mix (steamed)
90 g Tilapia (Steamed)
30 g Galeo's Ginger Wasabi Miso Dressing
1/2 package of House Foods Tofu Shirataki
Topped with 5 g Meijer brand Hot and Sweet Mustard and Trader Joe's Cayenne Pepper
Also, a little container of Dannon Greek Yogurt sweetened with a packet of Truvia and a little Walden Farm's Caramel Dip


while I worked on my paper.
I used Beeb's tweaks and subbed Jennifer Eloff's Splendid Low Carb bake mix for Quinoa flour, more almond meal for garbanzo flour, and only 15 g of raisins plumped with water and sliced into smaller pieces.  It really reminds of my pre-ED favorite: cinnamon raisin bagels. =)

Snack 2:

still working on that darn paper
PB and J on a low carb tortilla
1 Tumaros Low Carb Multi Grain tortilla (4 net carbs)
1 TBSP of MaraNatha Creamy PB
1 TBSP of Walden Farms Peanut Butter Spread
1 TBSP of Polaner Sugrar Free with Fiber grape jelly

Dinner and Dessert:

But I thickened it with 1/4 tsp of guar and 1/4 tsp of xanthan to make it into a gravy and served it over 200 g of steamed faux rice (grated cauliflower)
Hot Chocolate
8 oz unsweetened Almond Breeze
5 g Hershey's Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
1 Packet of Truvia
1 tsp of Walden Farms Caramel Dip

Bedtime Snack:
Another container of Greek yogurt
8 g of Starbucks Protein/Fiber powder (I work there, so I "borrowed" some. Shhh lol)
About 5 g of Walnuts
About a tsp of Walden Farms Caramel Dip (Can you tell I LOVE Walden Farms?)

Oh!  I almost forgot to explain the title of this post. I just watched Food Inc for the first time.  I threw up in my mouth a little.  I wanna be a vegetarian.  But, then I'd be consuming more corn.  And isn't that the reason why I'd stop eating meat in the first place (because the cows are eating corn and should be eating grass)?  I don't eat red meat or pork anyway, but I eat dairy based yogurt and dairy cheese like there's no tomorrow.  And the fish!  The fish are eating corn too!  What the? O_o  Who knew fish could even eat corn?  I certainly didn't. And the poor little chickens!  How can I ever enjoy chicken again?!
