My Three-Day Food Diary

Here is her online food diary.

I subscribe to Vegan Soapbox, and a few days ago, Eccentric Vegan shared her three-day food diary, as well.

This has inspired me!

My meals consist of a blend of home-cooked recipes from varying cookbooks (and subsequent lunches from leftovers) and some favorite staples from the Co-op. Ty and I now shop almost exclusively from the Co-op for anything food-related and increasingly for toiletries, paper towels, shampoo, etc as we use up our old stuff.

Our mutual goal is to stay away from as much processed stuff as we can, but we also take into account that we’re only human and sometimes we just don’t have the time to make everything from scratch. So when we do buy pre-packaged and processed food, we keep an eye on the labels, so we know what we’re really getting. We’re big fans of buying fresh bread from Bread Farm and Avenue Bread, and supplement that with loaves of Dave’s Killer Bread, which makes awesome toast and sandwiches.

We just signed up for a half share of the Growing Whatcom CSA for the summer growing season. I’m super excited for our first box of produce, which we get to pick up on June 17th. The half share is every other week, as opposed to every week. We decided to go with that because we were worried that we might not use everything up in a week, which is highly likely! In any case, I’m looking forward to the challenge of using everything in our box!

Here’s my three-day food diary:
