Starting my Food Diary again [Oct 2020]

I accidently came across all my photos from 2014 (while I was cleaning out Google Photos, I hadn’t realized my phone had uploaded all my photos during that year!). Anyway, as I scroll through the photos before deleting them, I realized how healthy I was that year, how healthy I looked and felt, and that although I didn’t exactly see my current diet as ‘bad’ persay, it was nowhere near the level of what I was doing back then… and it obviously worked for me (and what I’m doing now is not working for me).

See my 2014 Food Diary posts here:

Accountability Food Diary

I’m not too keen to use Instagram or Social Media to upload every meal, I think it was the accountability that inspired me to be healthy that year. I took photos of everything I ate and wrote everything I ate, and as a result, somewhere in my psyche, I chose better, not just for the ‘shame’ reasons of having to admit I ate that cheesecake or something, but because I had a health blog at the time and I was also trying to inspire the benefits I was getting to others.

Then I hit my dark night and everything changed, including my diet, and I stopped uploading photos and stopped publishing my blog, and stopped my YouTube channel. I always thought there would be a point where I would ‘be back’, but I never came ‘back’.

And while I’m not back now, I’m inspired to regularly do my food diary again – at least on this blog where there’s not many visitors, to once again, I hope, inspire myself into health.

So a couple of days ago, with the 2014 photos fresh in my mind, I went grocery shopping and bought:

Pumpkin, Radish, Red Capsicum, Cauliflower, Spring Onions, Snow Peas, Green Beans, Rocket, Spinach, Mixed Lettuce, Red Cabbage, Cherry Tomatoes, Coriander, Broccoli, Black-seeded grapes, bananas, lemons, avocados, Pineapple, Apples, Carrots, and Chicken Tenders.

Hopefully enough ingredients to last a week of fresh juices, smoothies, and big dinner salads, to flood nutrition back into my body, and inspire healthy changes.
