Here at DietHobby, I've decided to occasionally share some detailed information about the meals I choose to eat.
My food choices are exactly that.
.............MY food choices...............
I'm not you. You're not me.
When I choose to eat something that you would NOT choose to eat, it is not an indictment of you or of your food choices.
I'm not a Michael Pollan fan, and I don't consider his advice to be the Gospel.
If any food has an existance outside of my own imagination, I consider it to be REAL food.
I take a vitamin pill every day. I do not require my food to be "natural", or "unprocessed". As far as I'm concerned, there are no foods forbidden to me. I find Sugar acceptable as well as artificial sweeteners. Wheat, corn, oats, rice, refined and unrefined, brown and white, are all just fine. I don't try to limit or restrict salt except as to conform to my own personal taste. I eat fruits and vegetables in small quantities, and I don't try to make myself eat any particular food simply because someone thinks it is "good for me". There are spices I like, and spices I don't like, and I don't eat anything unless it tastes good to me.
For the past ten years I've used a computer program every day to track all of my food. This provides me with nutritional information, including the estimated calories. I work to limit and restrict both the volume and the calories that are in the foods I eat.
I am a short, small, inactive, reduced obese, elderly woman, and my body does not require very many calories. All excess calories get turned into fat. My goal is to live the remaining years of my life at or near a "normal" weight. The only way that I can accomplish this, is to eat the foods I like in very small amounts.
My eating preferences are mentally framed as:
Delicate, dainty meals to nourish an equisite, elderly lady.
Here is an example of one such meal:
