    Today was a quite a day.

    Breakfast: A piece of fried chicken :look: :giggle: and fruit

    Lunch: burrito bowl with black beans, assorted veggies and salsa and I had a churro for dessert :lol:

    Dinner: Tuna sandwich with veggies and an oatmeal cookie

    The fried chicken was the gateway to all kinds of other things today. I need to get better at prepping my meals so I don't grab random things from the fridge..

    Will take my vits and fish oil shortly

    I have lemon, ginger and turmeric tea every morning

    then some kind of fresh juice in which I mix hemp, chia, ground flaxseed

    for breakfast I had rice, beans, salad, steamed kale, baked plantain and avocado

    for vitamins I take vitamin D3, calcium and a probiotic.

    This week just sped by!

    Thursday:
    Breakfast: typical meeting spread so had some fruit, orange juice, and a small pastry
    Lunch: a couple of small pieces of chicken, 12oz water
    Dinner: homemade beef and broccoli with lo mein noodles, cookie, 16 oz water, plus seltzer
    Vit C, Coq10, Vit D, Cal/Mg

    Friday:
    Breakfast: chicken biscuit, 12oz water
    Lunch: some chips
    Dinner: ate out at a Vietnamese place, had beef with rice noodles (I guess I'm on a beef/noodle kick :look:) and stevia soda. DH bought home some delicious pastries I love and ice cream, so of course I indulged and had another glass of water.
    I only took my Vit C and Coq10, was too tired to take vit D and Cal/Mg because these new tablets are huge, and I can't deal with that when I'm tired. I probably won't repurchase this Cal/Mag because of the size.

    Today is a great because it's the first day of the month and I can already say I'm confident in committing to using my green powders daily, at least 1 salad, and taking my vit D and Cal/Mg each day. (I've already taken them, just need to take my green powder and have a salad.) Almost out of vit C and coq10, but the other two supplements are most important for me to take.

    I remembered that I like eating out in limited doses, being out and about and then eating something I didn't make limits healthier options. Also, when I'm busy, I tend to drink very little liquids in general. I've been leaving my thermos behind this week, will have to bring it everywhere again.

    Breakfast: 16oz water with my vit C, coq10, vit D, Cal/mag (I'm moving toward taking all supps in the morning)
    Lunch: homemade beef/broccoli lo mein, 16oz water with chlorella, some chips, some kombucha
    Dinner: salad with nutritional yeast, dulse, and balsmic/oo dressing, curry chicken with cabbage and carrots, 16oz water a small serving of ice cream

    I excited to be more consistent with my green powders and salads this month.

    Breakfast: 16oz water, egg and turkey sausage on a roll, the rest of the kombucha
    Lunch: chips, 16oz water
    Dinner: 16oz water with chlorella, salad with nutritional yeast and dulse, oo/balsamic, 16oz water, a serving of ice cream
    Vit C, coq10, Vit D, and Cal/Mag (For this month, I'm taking these with my first serving of water.)

    Thanks, yes carrying a container makes life easier.

    Nettle tea is tasty, I also like dandelion because they have that earthy taste. Licorice is sweet and soothes my stomach and tulsi is nice because of the lemon taste. I'm trying to get through my tea stash when I have time to steep some in the morning. I'm a tea hoarder so I'm not buying more until I get through my supply. I also don't like sugar in my tea, so herbal teas with all the flavors are my go-tos.

    Breakfast: 16oz water with Vit C, coq10, Vit D, Cal/Mag, croissant
    Lunch: 16oz water with chlorella, chips, low sugar dairy free yogurt, 16oz water, handful of walnuts
    Dinner: salad with dulse, nutritional yeast and acv/oo dressing, curry chicken, piece of bread with dairy free butter, sugar free ginger beer, serving of ice cream

    My nails are starting to grow stronger, and I know it's from the regular intake of nutritional yeast and my Vit D. Whenever I take these things my nails grow in super strong. Hopefully this will trickle down to my hair and even skin. I always think for me vits/minerals go to my nails, then hair, and then skin.

    My schedule was thrown off by a meeting, but I still got my vits, chlorella and salad in.
    Breakfast: none
    Lunch: a couple small pieces of chicken, cucumber tomato salad, a little pasta, 16oz water with vit C, coq10, Vit D, Cal/Mag
    Snack: stevia soda, 16oz water with chlorella, chips
    Dinner: salad with dulse, nutritional yeast, and acv/oo, curry chicken, bread with dairy free butter, 16oz water and a tiny lemon square

    Nutritional yeast is the best dairy free topper! I put it on salad, popcorn, in smoothies, pasta, etc, etc.
