Diet is mostly unprocessed foods. Breakfast is often toast (homemade bread or purchased from a small bakery here in town that uses all-natural ingredients) or an egg, or fresh fruit, or a hot cereal like oatmeal. Lunches can range from leftovers to soup to eggs to a Larabar or a Cliff bar, depending on how busy the day is and where we're going. I often have a snack around 4 consisting of toast or fruit. Supper is usually either a typical meat-and-potatoes-and-veggies or soup or Indian or any other such concoction my mom whips up. We do eat fast food, but maybe once a week at most, and then it's Taco Johns, Runza, or Wendy's. I get salads a lot, or burritos, etc. Try to stay away from greasy as it makes me sick. If we go out to eat other than that, it's Indian food or Thai, then maybe on occasion we go to Panera. I know I could be eating healthier . . . I do love a good dessert! And carbs are pretty darn tasty, too!
I will definitely talk to the doctor (still no appointment!) about what I can be doing to strengthen without losing the use of my left arm again. I have to be careful what I do because of these wimpy little tendons and nerves in my arms, and now I'm kinda paranoid because I don't want to lose months of riding and piano playing and typing again!
