day 1 - foccacia!

Since one of my stipulations for the month is to make sure our nutritional needs are taken care of, I've decided to post the recipes I use and their nutritional values. This will also be a really good tool for me to make sure that we're staying healthy. If we're not getting enough of something, I can always plan to add it in the next time I cook. I'm also going to track our weight. If we loose weight too quickly, I might end the experiment. I don't want to do any damage that might take month to repair...

Food intake for the day:

breakfast and lunch: mushroom foccacia
dinner: veggie stew and rice
