Food Tracking in My Bullet Journal

by - April 10, 2021

 Usually one of everyone's new year's goals is to eat more healthily, exercise more, and maybe lose a couple of pounds. Your bullet journal can help you reach these goals! One way to eat more healthily is to track what you are eating so you can have an idea of how much you are eating and how healthy the food that you are eating is. A great place to put this information is in your bullet journal!

Just another side note, I have another post showing my eating tracker and workout tracker from last year and you can read it at the following link: Healthy Eating + Fitness Tracking in My Bullet Journal.

Since I have changed my eating layout quite a bit from last year's layout, I wanted to make a new post to show you how it works and offer some suggestions on how you can make this layout work for you in case you are wanting to be more healthy and use your bullet journal to help you accomplish this goal!

Okay, let's get onto the supplies I used for this layout, how I set it up, and how it works!

Supplies Used For My Food Log Bullet Journal Layout

This layout is pretty minimalistic, so I didn't use very many supplies. If you don't have Crayola SuperTips, another brand of markers will do as well, and the same goes for all of the other supplies on this list. I don't think I used a white gel pen on this layout, but I wanted to include it on this list as well because my white gel pen is really helpful to me!

  • Crayola SuperTips - Crayola SuperTips are used on almost all of my spreads! They are great for beginners, really affordable, and there are tons of colors. If you are looking to buy some markers to use in your bullet journal, then I recommend these ones.
  • Black Sharpie Pen - If you have read probably any of my other posts, then you will know that I always use a black sharpie pen for writing in my bullet journal.
  • White Gel Pen - I use a white gel pen to mark out any mistakes I make on my layouts, and while it is sometimes still a little bit noticeable, it doesn't bother me. I also used a white gel pen for the numbering on the calendar.
  • Mechanical Pencil - I used a mechanical pencil to sketch in some parts of this layout to make sure they were positioned correctly.
  • A Ruler - To draw straight lines of course! Straight lines are a must for me and I can't get them without a ruler.

First of all, I finally decided to use a color besides pink in this bullet journal! It only took me four months to decide to use another color. lol

This layout is for one month and it takes up two pages. I only made one, so I can try it out for a month and see if I like it, and then if I do, I will continue to use it, and probably change up the color every month.

The calligraphy font I used for the header is Champagne Dreams, which you can find on Creative Market, and I went with a minimalist look, which is pretty much my usual bullet journal style.

Food Tracker Bullet Journal First Page

On the first page, I have one line for each day, with enough room for space to write down what I ate for breakfast, lunch, snack, and dinner.

If you are trying to not eat snacks, you would of course, just leave out that space.

Plus, if you are trying to count calories, you could have a column for that.

On the left side of the page, I write down the date in light blue, and then I write my breakfast on top of it in black. This way, at the beginning of the day, I can make sure I am writing on the right line.

This first page, is just so I can have an idea of what I am eating, and to make sure I am eating a variety of foods.

Food Tracker Bullet Journal Second Page

This page is pretty simple and complicated at the same time. It sure took a long time to draw all of the blue dots!

At the top of this page, I have a quote that says, "A healthy outside starts from the inside". I wanted to do the quote quickly, so I wrote it in my best regular handwriting, and I didn't even bother to center it, but that's okay!

The purpose of your bullet journal is to be functional first and aesthetic second if you want it to be. If I make this layout again, I will probably use a different quote.

The idea behind this layout is The Daily Dozen Challenge. I just try to fill up as many circles as I can each day.

For example, I am trying to eat 3 servings of beans, 1 serving of berries, 3 servings of fruit, etc. I changed flaxseed to chia seed because I usually eat chia seeds more than flaxseeds. I also added a column for "no sugar" because I am trying to cut my sugar intake, which is already pretty low.

Everything else is the same as the original Daily Dozen challenge.

If you are trying to track other things, you could very easily use this same type of layout.
