You can't get hobnobs here in the US. :(
Sucks, because they look yummy.

my nana always had them at her house and it was like "uh hobnobs, why can't we have teddy bear biscuits or wagon wheels!"

That's funny - I was exactly the same with my parents, the only biscuits they ever bought were Digestives :D *zzzzzzzzzzzzz* And not even the kind with chocolate on them ;) I'm starting to eat them again now but for a time I couldn't face them. :)

Mug of Cocoa with a little bit of Alpro 'cream', a few chocolate chips and some chocolate sprinkles :p and a couple of Digestive biscuits.

1 Apple.

Leek, Potato and Pearl Barley Soup (a staple in our house :o ).

1 Apple.

Veggie Ribs (*drool*), thick Chips, Peas and Plamil Mayonnaise :) .

Today's only early, so yesterday I ate:

Crispbreads with peanut butter and one with marmite, half a grapefruit

Salad with chickpeas, rocket, cucumber, tomato and lemon juice, a plum

Thai salad with tofu - the recipe is here and it is totally yummy:
http://www.uktvfood.co.uk/index.cfm?uktv=recipes.recipe&ID=515754
I really recommend it. You can use other colour peppers, carrots, or anything else cruchy in the salad but it must contain swede. It's really really good.

I am recording and calculating my daily nutrient intake- it's an assignment for my nutrition class. Here is what I had yesterday, along with the nutrients we were required to record. I'm wondering why the professor didn't ask us to record vitamin d, b12, or E... but I recorded d and b12 anyway for my own curiosity.

The only vitamin I fell slightly short on was Vitamin A (so I went out and bought some yams today!), but everything else I got way more than enough of. I'm wondering how my omnivore classmates are doing...

breakfast:
strawberry soy yogurt
1/2 cup orange juice (calcium fortified)

lunch:
veggies in mini wheat pockets (cabbage, carrots, tofu)
with sesame sauce

early evening:
2 vegetable patties (string beans, carrots, peas, etc) No bun.
2 tablespoons ketchup
2 cups chocolate soymilk
strawberry soy yogurt

late evening:
baked potato with 16g Nutritional Yeast and 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
2 cups chocolate soymilk

DAILY TOTALS
calories 1,950
fat 51.5 g
saturated fat 5.5 g
carbohydrates 313 g
fiber 36 g
protein 78 g
vitamin A 68%
vitamin C 129%
calcium 188%
iron 118%
thiamin 670%
niacin 593%
vitamin B6 545%
folic acid 149%
sodium 2356 mg
magnesium 110%
vitamin D 133%
vitamin B12 330%

Probably not as good as you if the omnivores I know are anything like the ones you know.

What are yams? Are they sweet potatos? :confused:

Just breakfast so far: 3 small slices of rye toast, 4oz. soy yogurt cup (peach!), glass of tomato juice, red delicious apple.

And some blue raspberry Jolly Ranchers. :D

vitamin B12 330%

Woah :eek: All from fortified soymilk/yoghurt? I'm also eating fortified stuff but wouldn't have thought of such huge amounts of B12...over here, they only enhance different faux meats with B12.

What I ate:

breakfast: berry muesli with vanilla soymilk
1 cup of coffee with soymilk

snack: 2 apple scones when I missed my underground and needed something sweet ;)

lunch:
leftover fried garlic tofu
spaghetti with pasta

snack: 1 pretzel when my friend missed her tram and I was waiting at the station

dinner: a huuuuuuuuuge wok full of broccoli stir-fry to make up for the absence of veggies and fruit all throughout the day (I was craving broccoli!) and some Turkish cocoa halva :cool:

I went to Epcot yesterday, part of Disney World! It was so much fun, but I was pretty worried about what I was going to eat, as we went to the Magic Kingdom about a month ago and the pickins were very slim. Epcot has the World Showcase though, with ethnic food in each "country", so it worked out really well.

breakfast: kashi golean w/ ground flax, raspberries & soy milk

snack: three bean salad

For lunch we went to Biergarten, in the Germany pavilion. I was not hopeful for my options, since German food is generally so meat-and-potato-based (or at least that's our American opinion of it). But surprisingly the buffet had plenty for me to eat, and I left STUFFED. Food included cold green cabbage w/ caraway seeds, carrot & raisin salad, wax bean & baby carrots, greens w/ tarragon-mustard dressing, sliced beets, spelt w/ cucumber & dill, pretzel rolls, warm red cabbage, rosemary roasted potatoes & garlic with curry ketchup & sweet mustard, pineapple chutney, fruit salad, and applesauce. And a HUGE German wheat beer. Holy crap, I can't believe I ate all that in one sitting.

We ate dinner at the Japan pavilion, sat at the sushi bar. Started with edamame and a green salad w/ tomatoes & ginger dressing, then had a cucumber roll and another roll that had tempura-fried sweet potatoes and some kind of shredded gourd. And a Kirin beer.

After the park closed we went to ESPN club to watch the A's/Mariners game. Ate some seasoned fries so the bartender wouldn't get mad at us for taking up space.

Yesterday was such a good day :)

overslept - just a banana on the way to the bus stop.

in between lectures:
2 apples
pumpkin seed roll
soya milk + fruit juice drink
black coffee

soya yogurt (blackberry) + oats

quinoa, roast butternut squash + spicy tomato sauce

not a very good day.

Hi Sarah,
interesting assignment! Thanks for posting that. Just out of curiousity, do you think you're eating differently because you know you have to record it all, or is this how you'd normally eat?

Does tempura normally have egg?

Does tempura normally have egg?

You know, I was wondering that myself, and I didn't ask. I was so hungry, and all the employees were Japanese and didn't speak English that well, and that was the only veggie roll other than a plain cucumber roll or avocado roll. I should have asked. Anyone know for sure?

today:

lunch at Chevy's (Mexican restaurant): chips & salsa, portobello & asparagus burrito, black beans, lettuce, pico de gallo, guacamole & rice

snack: strawberry banana Silk soy yogurt and a pear

dinner: Amy's Texas burger on multi-grain bread w/ soy cheese, bbq sauce & bacos, assorted raw veggies w/ ranch dip, two Newman's Own hint of mint cookies

When I looked back at my food record, I realized I miscalculated... I actually had 430% for B12! And yes, all from fortified soymilk, soy yogurt, and nutritional yeast!

These are all things I normally eat. The only difference is that right now I'm avoiding foods that are high in calories with not many nutrients- like cookies- because I'm trying to lose some weight.

Jamboxrocks, it sounds like you had a wonderful day at EPCOT. The food sounds yummy!

As for me:

breakfast:
-oatmeal with soymilk, Earth Balance, cardamom, cloves, nutmeg, and cinnamon
-some nasty Green Plant drink from Trader Joe's

lunch:
-leftover barley and veggie soup

dinner (I was really hungry):
-a LOT of swiss chard (my first time having it; I REALLY like it!)
-6 small tostones with dipping sauce made out of ketchup, "mayo" and onion and garlic powder
-a really big sloppy joe with mushrooms on a wheat kaiser roll and another sloppy joe on a small hard bun
-2 glasses of peach tea

And now I'm snacking on a box of dried currants.

My appetite is definitely back! lol :D

Today:
