Real Food Diary – What I Ate Today

I try to keep my diet low in grains because I feel best when I eat a lot of protein. But sometimes a girl just wants a bagel, right?

Today was a fun day, but it was tough to keep the food real. I visited my hometown for the first time in a while and we had a barbeque.

Even though the food wasn’t ideal for a real food diet, it was delicious. Frankly, it’s just not worth it to me to make a big deal over fun food with friends and family. In fact, I wrote an article about how to eat healthy at parties without being a food snob.

The truth is, I ate plenty of real food today, I just had some extra stuff, as well.

To see what I mean, read on to today’s real food diary entry.

Family BBQ!

Burger (refined, white flour bun, CAFO meat from the grocery store, bottled BBQ sauce in the meat–you know, pretty typical Standard American fare.  And I enjoyed every bite while enjoying time with my family!)
