Food habit

I'm kind of a creature of habit, especially when it comes to eating. My daily routine almost always consists of the following:
  • I start the day with 2 cups of coffee and a bowl of Quaker Instant Oatmeal: Maple and Brown Sugar (low sodium), made with skim milk (2 minutes in the microwave) - while reading news, email, and blogs on the computer. We buy the Walmart Fair Trade coffee (I know, seems like a contradiction).
  • When I head to the office I take another coffee in a to-go cup - which I will sip from until 11 am or so.
  • Around 10 am I eat a banana, and maybe a breakfast bar (I just recently bought some of these - blueberry, low fat fruit and gran bars).
  • At lunch I have a bowl of cereal with skim milk (unless there are leftovers in the fridge that I'm capable of heating up). Currently in the cupboard: Raisin Bran, Frosted Spoon-size Shredded Wheat, Crispex, and Golden Grahams.
  • In the afternoon I might have a little package of cheese & crackers (reduced fat), and maybe a can of diet pepsi, or water.
  • I usually have a couple of glasses of water at various points during the day, and sometimes a can of v8 vegetable juice.
  • For supper I eat whatever Jane sets in front of me. Which is always most excellent. We eat lots of chicken, and usually some kind of green veggy; often rice, and all kinds of other good stuff. Along with a glass of water.
  • At night I almost always have a glass of cranberry juice (100%), and maybe some triscuits, or carrots, or cheese, or something like that.
  • In the winter I almost always have a cup of hot tea with a hall's cough drop in it before bed.
There ya go. That's my day. The only regular variation is that Friday nights Lady Jane and I always go out to eat somewhere, and we almost always go out for lunch after church on Sunday. Sometimes there will be other occasional glitches, but for the most part... this is it. Every day.
