Cory Booker Foods Stamp Obstacle Working day Four

Cory Booker Food Stamp Challenge Day Four

There’s nothing at all exiting to report nowadays. I relished the Breakfast of Champions again (a hundred% complete grain wheat cereal with no sugar, salt or cholesterol but heaps of fiber soaked in 2% milk and the elixir of the gods and tormentor of nutritionists from coast to coast, 12 ounces of Coca-Cola with a jolt of caffeine robust ample to crank my motor in early morning). I had a cookie snack prior to I went for my workout at the Y – four miles functioning and 3¼ miles walking superior for 900 energy.

A though immediately after I obtained property I obtained hungry and created a cheese omelet with sausage on the aspect, adopted by a can of Kroger brand pineapple chunks which ended up pretty ripe and juicy. When again the retail outlet brand turns out to be as superior as the Dole pineapple I had been getting prior to, but expense me $one.00 fairly than $one.50. I’ll be switching to Kroger brand canned fruit in the upcoming. In point, all the Kroger retail outlet brand foodstuff I acquired has been great. So that is a lesson not only for the foodstuff stamp obstacle, but for all my upcoming grocery shopping.

It was another superior day of the obstacle for me, with a calorie depend of 2141 and a expense of $4.twenty as well as tax.

As much as nutrition goes, I busted my 1500 sodium target and was way way too reduced on the fiber again. It seems to be like my ideal guess is to abide by Coach Pam’s information and instead of sausage just get typical floor meat that has a lot significantly less sodium. The cookies are also a target for alternative since of significant sodium and sugar and lack of fiber. Pam’s recommendation of dried lentils or beans seems to be like it will go a lengthy way to up the fiber at reduced expense. There may be cookie options with some fiber like oatmeal cookies, and there’s no dilemma with introducing a bit far more clean or canned fruit instead of cookies. It is obvious I have far more than ample foodstuff to get by this week so I’m thinking of the obstacle of performing this for a next week, attempting to continue to be beneath $30 but conference or at minimum obtaining close to the dietary suggestions. The only dilemma is this is an eat-at-property workout and in some cases I will want to eat out….

But prior to you start off patting your self on the back again a little way too a lot 1 warning is in buy Coach Pam who called me a senior citizen: you’ll have to pry my early morning Coke out of my chilly, dead palms. Cookies I can do without having and sausage I can do without having but Coke for breakfast is sacred. From time to time I’m coachable and in some cases I’m far more like Kobe Bryant.

In any case, quite a few thanks for your comprehensive remarks and great information Pam. I’m mastering a great deal from this experiment.

And thanks also to my other flickr mates for their observations. I’ve obtained the ideal flickr mates.
