Food Reminder to Self:

Eat better. Going to the farmers market doesn't count if you don't cook the veggies before they rot!

WebMD says eat more:
1: Berries - a cup a day - U.S.D.A study: blueberries top the list of antioxidant-rich fruits, followed by cranberries, blackberries, raspberries, and strawberries.
2: Dairy - U.S. government's 2005 Dietary Guidelines recommends three daily servings of low-fat dairy products. I need even more since I'm breast feeding.
3: Fatty Fish - Yum! Broil more fish.
4: Dark Leafy Greens - Duh, eat more of these. (spinach, kale, etc.) Not doing too bad here.
5: Whole Grains - Doing okay on brown rice, but whole grain pasta is still meh.
6: Sweet Potatoes - ? Okay.
7: Tomatoes - If I ever get my stupid organic heirloom seeds to sprout, I will be swimming in excess. Try harder.
8: Beans and Legumes - These are almost completely absent from my cooking repertoire, need to fix that. Try cooking lots of beans and storing them in the fridge to allow my usual impromptu and 1-hour or less cook time requirements.
9: Nuts - Got it covered at work. Nuts keep away the evil vending machine. Somedays.
10: Eggs - I probably eat too many of these, but perhaps not on average. Eggs! Yum!

Priority: work on berries (they aren't expensive compared to that Ben&Jerry's ice cream bar you just ate, stupid), fish (stop being so scared of mercury you don't eat as much fish: Study Questions Pregnancy Fish Limit), and beans (stop being lazy.)

Work on a week menu and shopping appropriately rather than cooking haphazardly and going to the grocery store 3 times and still running out of milk.
