Well, let's try again.

Hi there. I am going to reboot this blog as my food diary. If you don't want to read what I eat everyday, unsubscribe to this blog. I cannot guarantee recipes, but I'll try to at least list the site or book I get the recipe from. I have lost 30 pounds from March 2009 to August 2009, but it's March 2010, and I've gained nearly ten pounds back in the last six months. That's pretty good, but I want to keep my health in the forefront as I make my way through graduate school and the rest of my life. I used to use the food diary on my iPhone, but the calorie counting got dull, and the app is not perfect. However, I can sit down at the end of the day and write down everything, or write during the day and post at the end. The idea of anyone reading what I eat all day is sort of terrifying, so hopefully that will keep me honest!

Because that's the point. Let's be honest with ourselves about what we put in our mouths, where it comes from, and why we eat it.

Warning to vegans: I have a weakness for Mini Eggs and Snickers. These are emotional hangovers from my childhood that I cannot seem to replace on my own, and are associated with my mom, who lives states away and who I miss on a regular basis. I try to limit the eating to seasonal or really lonely days.
