May 21, 2014

Food Intake – 3 Days SCI/ 220 Week 2 assignment was to document the foods and beverages consumed over the course of three (3) days. I assumed this would be challenging because these past few weeks have been more hectic than usual due to work, and I would be traveling one of the 3 days because I was visiting my daughter in New Jersey. The period I chose was from Sunday May 18th thru Tuesday May 20th.

I got out of work early on this day (only a 13 hour day) so I stopped at a chicken place on the way home and ordered their Chicken, steak and shrimp meal, with rice and french fries. When I got home, I found out that I was shorted my chicken, a total bummer but it turns out I didn’t really need it anyway.
