Post What is on YOUR menu?
So...what do you eat on an "average" day?

Here is my menu:

Breakfast (I do not always eat breakfast...which I am trying to change):

Coffee or tea
Packaged mini-muffins or some other fast item. Sometimes a banana or packaged oatmeal.

Lunch:

Frozen "TV" dinners mostly. Every so often, I have leftovers when I get my ass in the kitchen and cook!

Dinner:

Burgers (beef), Chicken which I buy and make myself or any assortment of Gorton's frozen fish. I am hooked on the new Shrimp Sensations line.

Also Pasta of different sorts and veggies (my wife and kids are vegetarians...but even they are not free of the industrial chain...but veggies are abundant).

Late night: Some yogurt, peanut butter and crackers, can of black olives and whatever else looks good.


Not looking overly good huh? I guess I eat better at night...but I should cut out crap Late night I think and start thinking better breakfast and lunch!

Mr. P's place. I warned you!!!

The one thing of which I am positive is that there is much of which to be negative - Mr. P.

My eating habits are pretty irregular. They almost have to be, since the demands of my schedule are pretty irregular. Just about the only regularity I can count on is a daily latte. That usually (but not always) comes from a Fair Trade coffee shop, which isn't ideal, perhaps, but it's closer to ideal than it could be...

I will say this, though -- at least 80% of what I eat in a week is made in a restaurant kitchen. Which does not make me happy. I'd much prefer to cook the majority of my meals at home, so that I know the process and what goes into the food.

When I'm not travelling, I'm pretty good.

I make broth and veggie soups a lot with ginger, garlic, etc (whatever strikes me at the time), lots of tea (I'd actually like to read the story on THAT), cheese and crackers, and at night, fish stir fry, or thai curry, or chili, etc.

I love to cook. I'm only on page 168 of The Omnivore's Dilemma, but there are already changes in my kitchen that I'm planning on making.

I shop mostly at Wild Oats. I ought to do more research. I should make myself shop locally.

Shopping locally requires research, that's for sure! Especially if you live in the city. I'm in a more rural setting, a small city of 30+ thousand, so I know some of where and when to get local food.

Here's an interesting concept -- the 100 Mile Diet, being practiced by this couple in Vancouver, BC for the year.

I have been weighing a decision on my efforts to live a more sustainable lifestyle, and was wondering if anyone minded giving their opinion. I've been building up baby steps and have made some progress. But there's one issue where I know I could be better, but wonder how necessary that is. One of my biggest eating treats is cheese. There is a local gourmet food market just around the corner from me and they have the most amazing cheese selection. Now, obviously, these cheeses are largely imported. I could easily (easily as in the cheese does not constitute a substantial part of my diet
