The others were just refined grains like the noodles in the chicken noodle soup. Vegetables -I had different types of greens, like iceberg romaine, and leaf lettuce. I had potatoes which are starchy vegetable and had olives and carrots on my salad; but I need to add more dark orange and different types of vegetables into my diet, like putting broccoli and spinach in my salad with corn and black beans.

I also had citrus fruits like grapefruit, pineapple chunks, and mandarin orange segments. Dairy - I did not do well with dairy at all. My sources were from provolone cheese in my wrap, milk in mashed potatoes, ice cream, and feta cheese on my salad. I need to eat more low fat sources of dairy products. Meat/Beans - I ate low fat meats like turkey and chicken, and the chicken was also grilled. I also had ribs and peanuts or peanut butter, which are higher in fat, but threw in some variety. I did not have any fish products. 1D I.

Vitamin B-12-
