I have gone out to eat a couple of times this week, since I'm taking an all-week training course in the Mission which has many good restaurants. But I've tried to make reasonably healthy choices, like adding a baby greens salad to my baked tofu sandwich, and eating only half of my veggie chow fun (and no appetizer) at a Vietnamese restaurant. I'm also drinking lots of water, avoiding soda, and having raw sugar snap peas for snacks (yum!).
Dinners remain a challenge, but tonight I had a really excellent meal, one of my favorite simple dishes: a baked yam and chopped spinach. I normally microwave both but I decided to bake the yam in the toaster oven this time. I microwaved the frozen spinach as usual with some veggie broth, then sprinkled on nutritional yeast and garlic powder. I put nothing on the yam; the ones with deep orange flesh are delicious plain. I had a couple of date-coconut rolls to hold me while waiting, and after eating dinner was thoroughly stuffed - with good, vitamin- and mineral-rich food. Real food, real good.
