Food Diary

Just before Christmas I saw in my Twitter feed that Washingtonian Magazine was looking for food diarists.  Knowing that I have a bit of an unconventional diet, I decided to give it a whirl.  I knew that my food log would be analyzed by a nutritionist, and possibly picked apart by someone who has a tattoo of the USDA’s MyPlate on their upper arm.  I was pleasantly surprised by the fact that the analysis was not too harsh, and some of the criticism could have been cleared up if I had included a little bit more detail in the log (we have gone to uncured, nitrate-free bacon, for example, and one of the criticisms was the amount of processed meat consumed).  Of course, the expert and I will have to agree to disagree on many things, such as my lack of grain consumption causing vitamin deficiencies, and that the cholesterol in the yolks of my eggs is going to mess up my lipid profile (they haven’t).  Oh, and by the way, I was about to start the Whole 30 in January so I was kicking up my heels a little more than usual with the sweets and treats.

Here’s the article and here’s the Paleosphere’s response to the expert’s analysis written by Lila Solnick.  Enjoy!
