I read pretty much the entire article originally posted to this thread, overall interesting. Some of the info wasn't to new but I have been a fairly balanced eater as thats how it was at our house. Meat and potatoes with veggies kind of thing with a rotation of chicken, pork, beef and some fish as well as rice and noodles. Almost always we had a salad or other vegetable serving and where I grew up, you ate what you were served and liked it! Or Dad would get that stern note in his voice and you would go to bed hungry.
These days we try to do the same by having a protein, vegetable and starch of some sort for dinner at least. Weekdays I have stopped the milk and cereal routine that I was back on for a couple years, it was giving me heartburn each day so now its a banana, apple or pear while driving in. Couple of ham and cheese sandwiches, boiled egg with a pinch of sea salt, mixed nuts, a yoghurt and a granola and/or a fibre bar of some sort with about 1 to 1.5 liters of water through most work days.
I still love a burger and its now done to one burger meal with my little buddy per fortnight, we share the regular fries and a rootbeer, thats about the only soda he gets. We do a lot of water and juice at home and he still gets milk.
Anyhoo, probably TMI, back to what you were doing!
