Scrutiny. Nobody enjoys it.
My daughter’s rheumatologist referred her to a nutritionist, and the appointment is this week. I’m a bit paranoid about having someone critique the way we eat. While it might be nice to serve perfectly balanced meals, I view that more as an ideal than a mandate. Sometimes we get busy and are just happy to grab food that doesn’t make anyone sick.
Nonetheless, we were told to bring in a list of the foods we eat for a few days prior to the appointment, so I’ve been trying to keep track (and even plan ahead).
Morning: Cherry rice pudding, juice
Noon: Teriyaki ribs, carrot sticks
Evening: Beef-n-Beans, carrot sticks, grapefruit
Morning: Baked Oatmeal, juice
Noon: Cider-Beef Stew
Evening: Orange chicken, rice, spinach
Morning: French toast with peach sauce, juice
Noon: Sandwiches, bananas
Evening: Roast, green beans, plum pie
Thanks for reading. Hope you’re having a great week!
*On Sunday afternoons, I remove all leftovers from the refrigerator and set them out on the counter for everyone to fix their own plate from the available options. This gives me a break from the cooking, and also prevents green fuzz from growing in my kitchen.
