This is a photo of my delicious breakfast from Friday
Plain Dannon Yogurt
Plain Dannon Yogurt
With my that breakfast concoction I threw together I got 15g of Protein, 7g of Fiber, 12% of my Vitamin A requirement, 58% of my Vitamin C requirement, 42% of my Calcium requirement, and 34% of my Iron requirement!
So, tell me, what did you have for breakfast this morning?
How much of each of the recommended daily requirements did your breakfast fulfill?
If you are like I was 7+ months ago, you can probably answer the first question pretty easily, but have no clue how to answer the second question. I would say if you asked most Americans those two questions the case would be the same:
First question - no problem!
Second question - "HUH? Recommend daily what?"
Well, I know where you can find a whole group of (mostly) Americans that could answer both questions with certainty! They could also tell you how much sodium, fat and carbs they've had for the day. They know every day if they've met their recommend daily allowances of Vitamins A & C, Protein, Calcium & Iron too!
You ask, "Where are these people, Garcia? Are they on some crazy, nutritional, commune somewhere?"
Nope, they are right here on the World Wide Web at Nutrimirror
My own personal journey to better health began on August 7, 2009. I decided I was going to start logging my food online to keep better track of my calorie intake. I happened upon a free online food journal called Nutrimirror® and I've been there ever since! So far I've lost 37 lbs and I have been eating healthier than I probably ever had in my entire life!
Nutrimirror® is so much more than "just a food journal" though, it's a community of very caring and loyal users who support each other. It is is a simple tool that lets the individual play the central role in meeting personal health goals. Some of the people who use the site are there to lose weight, other to gain and still other to maintain. No matter what your individual nutrition goal is Nutrimirror can help you meet it!
The Nutrimirror® system is accurate and user friendly — easy to understand, easy to navigate. In fact, once you've become familiar with the system's interface and tools, you should spend no more than ten to twenty minutes of logging each day to get all the information you need to successfully manage your weight and nutritional balance.
Nutrimirror® can be used to lose, gain or simply maintain your weight. When you focus on feeding your body properly you can reap the benefits of achieving your optimum weight, but more importantly, you can improve your health! I really can't say enough good things about this excellent tool and the wonderful people who have brought it to us.
Important Note: Ask Garcia does not receive any endorsement compensation from Nutrimirror® for shamelessly promoting their website all over her blog... she just loves them so much because of all she has received from using their wonderful, free website she wants to return the favor and point others in their direction so they can begin their own journey to better health too!
