Elleise.....I have enjoyed Pepperidge Farm Farmstand 12 Grain Bread. Now I have a loaf of Arnold Oatnut bread and I like this one too. I agree though, some whole wheat and other grain breads are terrible. Bitter, dry, and just not appetizing.
I usually start the day with tea or cocoa, then I have eggs, cereal, oatmeal, a granola bar, grilled cheese sandwich, or a peanut butter sandwich. On occasion buckwheat or regular pancakes, or whole grain toast. Sometimes I like leftovers from the night before. For lunch I will have tuna or chicken, often in a sandwich. I eat fruit and veggies during the day......kale, spinach, garlic, onions, peppers, tomatoes, carrots, broccoli, peaches, bananas, clementines, watermelon, beans, and more. I like grilled chicken on a ceasar salad. For dinner I will have a small amount of chicken or another meat with veggies. Sometimes just a pile of veggies sauteed in olive oil makes a meal for me, even just a sweet potato that's been cooked in the microwave then cut open and drizzled with olive oil and black pepper. Sometimes I eat my greens with a squeeze of fresh lemon.
I do like my carbs but I try to limit them. Sometimes a baked sweet treat, but I do like whole wheat pasta and occasionally I will have rice or potatoes.
