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.
