I really haven't had much to write about and swore to myself that I wouldn't bore you with another "where I ate today" blog. Instead I thought to myself, "Why not describe what you have eaten today?" What you had for breakfast and what was packed in your lunch bucket.
Breakfast? That was simple. Tiffany cooked up some steel cut oats last night. She toasted the steel cut oats in coconut oil and used coconut milk to cook them up. This morning she reheated the oatmeal and I included a dollop of IKEA lingonberry preserves. A 1/4 cup of cooked oats and approximately 1/2 teaspoon of preserves.
Lunch? A sandwich built on a 6" whole wheat submarine bun. One slice of Wham (vegetarian ham) and one slice of vegetarian smoked turkey. One slice of rice cheese. Approximately 1 Tablespoon reduced fat vegenaise with some jalapeno mustard. I heated the sub in the microwave at the office before adding lettuce slices, tomato slices, pickle slices, and fresh jalapeno slices. Delicious!
Tiffany had included about 1/4 cup of garbanzo bean garden salad from Hoover's Essential Market, a Gala apple, and some hot smoked TVP jerky pieces. I've also delved into my secret desk stash of rice pucks. I ate two of them (3 pucks have 40-calories).
According to Diet Power computations, I've eaten about 877 calories so far today. This is good. This leaves me a fair amount of available calories for my dinner tonight. No, the dinner menu to be determined.
Hi-dee hi-dee keep-track-of-what-you-are-eating-ho my friends!
