So in this post, I am documenting my five days worth of observations from my selected chosen interest. I decided to record and photograph my diet due to the fact that I would like to further research Celiac Disease, because I was recently diagnosed with it. Let’s begin!
Day 1): Tuesday, January 31st, 2017
8:28AM Breakfast: In an absolute rush to class, I hate 9AM classes for this very purpose- always terrified I will be late to them; swung by Starbucks for something fast- feel nauseated. There was in no way I could possibly make it to my class on time and have stopped by the UC Cafeteria for breakfast. Sweet potato chips, almonds, and a soy latte (gluten free).
3:06PM Lunch: It’s snowing outside. I got a window seat once again in the cafeteria, because there is absolutely nowhere to sit in here. I don’t see any of my friends, just a bunch of cliques; thinking about all I have to do today, and how I have three hours before my next class, and how I need to visit IT Central ASAP- a quick lunch. Grilled tofu, curried cauliflower, sweet potatoes, and water (gluten free).
5:00PM Dinner: Happy, really talked about ways to improve my resume. Eating the same thing I had a couple of days ago though, due to a limited amount of gluten-free options. Coconut curry soup, peanut butter breakfast bars, and coffee (gluten free).
Day 2): Wednesday, February 1st, 2017
8:09AM Breakfast: Extremely depressed- couldn’t focus fully on my homework, thinking obsessively over something I shouldn’t even bother worrying about; hungry. Potatoes, vegetables, and an almond protein shake (gluten free).
12:32PM Lunch: I feel like I literally eat the same shit every day sometimes here. Black bean and corn salsa, cranberry granola bar, water (gluten free).
7:51PM Dinner: Had a stressful day, lots of homework; eating in my dorm tonight. Brown rice, black beans, salsa, lettuce, guacamole, and water (gluten free).
Day 3). Thursday, February 2nd, 2017
7:20AM Breakfast: Have leftovers from last semester I need to eat up; so I made myself too much oatmeal- but that’s only because I didn’t have measuring cups and I’m tired. Cranberry pumpkin seed oatmeal with vegan butter (gluten free).
11:50AM Lunch: I couldn’t resist.. for some reason the oatmeal made me nauseated or was it the vegan butter that had possibly gone bad? Who knows, I just went and got a light lunch early. My “Time” class is long. Salad greens with vegetables and tofu, kale smoothie (gluten free).
5:09PM Dinner: Getting dinner early, because I’m going to a fashion panel info session. Pigeon peas and rice, with coffee (gluten free).
Day 4): Friday, February 3rd, 2017.
7:34AM Breakfast: What do you know- at it with the oatmeal again; don’t have time for the cafeteria. Cranberry pumpkin seed oatmeal and vegan butter (gluten free).
3:09PM Lunch: The best part of my day, I’m so hungry! Black beans and cilantro rice, guacamole, pico de gallo, and coffee (gluten free).
6:12PM Dinner: Of course I’m having to eat obviously at work, I’m not off until 7PM and have to meet a friend immediately after. Goodie. Seaweed salad, potato chips, and a mocha protein shake (gluten free).
Day 5): Saturday, February 4th, 2017.
8:53AM Breakfast: I would like to get a good chunk of my homework done before work and Chloe’s birthday tonight- eating my oatmeal again out of convenience. Cranberry pumpkin seed oatmeal and vegan butter (gluten free).
2:05PM Lunch: Need to rush, have to go book shopping with a friend for my other friend’s birthday present. Vegetables, hash browns, and a mocha protein shake (gluten free).
6:44PM Dinner: Have so much homework to do, so I decided to bring food back to my dorm. Tofu, salad greens with balsamic vinaigrette, granola bar, and coffee (gluten free).
