30 Day Food Diary Challenge - Day Two

(Yesterday's post has now been updated.)

Today we were visiting my Auntie for most of the day so I only had breakfast and dinner at home. I had:

  • Baked porridge (oatmeal)
  • Orange juice
  • Tea
Mid morning snack
  • Scone with homemade strawberry jam, cream and a strawberry on it.
  • Quiche
  • Coleslaw
  • Potato salad
  • Grated carrot and cheese
  • Tinned peas and sweetcorn
  • Pickled beetroot
  • Tomato
  • Yoghurt with peach, banana and strawberries.
  • Orange juice
  • Tea
  • Orange juice
  • Egg on toast
  • Tea

It probably seems like a small dinner but the mid morning snack and lunch added up to almost 1000 calories and that is excluding the quiche and scone because the software doesn't have nutritional information for them.

Interestingly today (when to my mind I ate a lot of fruit and veg) the fat consumed is a lot higher than yesterday. I am also surprised to see that I was actually low on most vitamins and on fibre although I'm glad my vitamin E intake was better today. The low iron content doesn't surprise me since I know that I have to make a deliberate effort to choose high iron foods in my own cooking.

It's very interesting to note that lots of fruit and veg doesn't automatically mean lots of vitamins.
