A week on the 100 meter diet - Day 1

A common question that I get from people is "What do you eat on your diet?"

So, for this week, I'm going to keep notes on everything I have so you can get an idea about what it's like being on the 100 meter diet. I'll start with yesterday (Sunday), here's what I ate:

Breakfast: Goat milk yogurt and two slices of zucchini bread.

I wasn't much of a yogurt fan before I started the 100 meter diet. But now I have at least one yogurt a day, either for breakfast or for a late night snack. I absolutely love it. I usually make 6 jars (1 litre) every 2 or 3 days.

Unfortunately, zucchini bread doesn't last long around here because I eat it up so quickly. It's a great anytime snack.

Lunch: Toasted fried egg sandwich and a large glass of goat milk.

I knew a simple sandwich wasn't going to hold me over until dinner so I made some crackers in the afternoon, for a snack. I found the recipe in a magazine months ago but hadn't found the time to give it a try. It was easy to make and they really tasted quite nice.

I wish I had some cheese already made to go with the crackers. No such luck this time.

Dinner: Two goat chops, baby potatoes, pickled beats and pickled yellow zucchinis. For dessert, a couple of slices of fresh angle food cake.

Now, I don't eat this fancy
everyday but whenever I have goat meat I try to make it a little extra special. I cooked six goat chops on the BBQ so you'll be seeing a variation of this meal on Monday and again on Tuesday. That's pretty typical for this diet. I try to start off the work week with a couple of meals already made. It takes the stress out of trying to figure out what to have when I walk in the door.

In the evening, my snack was another yogurt and a few more crackers. Those crackers aren't going to last very long at this rate :)

I'll admit that this doesn't sound like a lot of food but it's more than enough for the new me. The old me could have finished off everything in one meal sitting. Crazy but true.


  1. Do you have a link to the recipe for the crackers? I really want to try something similar to this diet next year when we have two does milking.

  2. My camera was missing in action when I made these crackers. I'll make them again soon and post the recipe on my blog. I think you'll enjoy them!
