What I ate: March 13, 2011

Breakfast: Waffle (new recipe), 3 slices of Vermont Smoke and Cure bacon and 0.5 oz. Vermont maple syrup. I actually ate 3/4 of the waffle, but it was delicious.

Lunch: Beef with broccoli and scallion stir-fry, rice.

Soy chai latte. This was quite tasty. It's about half "India spice chai tea" from the Kerig and half steamed Silk vanilla soy milk (steamed with my espresso maker ). Though I try not to drink beverages with calories (um, except those containing alcohol) I could see how these could get a little addictive. 4 oz. of soy milk is only 50 calories, however.

  In case you're wondering, I normally drink 2-3 cups of black coffee, 1 espresso, 2-4 cups of tea (herbal and green) and countless glasses of ice water. I gave up Diet Coke more than a year ago, which was surprisingly difficult to do.

Snack: 0.7 oz. organic peanuts with salt.

Dinner: Shrimp scampi with spinach , a slice of Red Hen Mad River Grain bread, and 2 glasses of Casal Garcia Vinho Verde, Portugal.

Dessert: 1 square of Lake Champlain dark chocolate raspberry truffle. And 1 glass of Sebastiani Zinfandel.

And 1 slice of my new recipe for whole wheat cinnamon raisin walnuts bread with Earth Balance spread. This version of the recipe is much better than the last one.

Snack: 0.7 oz. potato chips.

Weight at beginning of the day: 109.8 lbs. Weight at the beginning of the next day: 109.8 lbs.
