In preparation for recording a second podcast episode with Dr. Michael Greger of Nutritionfacts.org, I tracked what I ate for 24 hours.

I didn’t plan or do anything differently. I still have no fridge or power from the electric grid, nor do I cook with gas. I do use the pressure cooker powered by my solar panels. The last time I tracked twenty-four hours of ingredients was February, for comparison.
