Hunger Challenge: Day 2

Food Log:

Sept. 12, 2010: Sunday night (first meal): Fruit bar and banana.

Monday: Cereal for breakfast. Pasta for lunch. Fruit bar for snack. Tomato soup for dinner.

Tuesday: Fruit bar and banana. Lunch: three strawberries, half a bun with lettuce, a tomato, and one slice of cheese and 2 pepperchinis.

Today, I hopped on a horse for 3 hours and strolled  through the open space of Sunol with the CA Rangeland Trust members. The tour ended with a BBQ with hamburgers and all the fixings, fresh strawberries, salad, and fudge brownies. I thought about making a peanut butter sandwich or a tuna fish sandwich but the fresh fruit and veggies was a warm welcome. I realized that it's difficult to get the recommended minimum daily allowances on $28/week:

6 servings of grains
3 servings of vegetables
2 servings of fruits
3 servings of dairy
2 servings of meat 

My thought for the day:  Appreciation.
