It's hard to do this with the new work schedule, but I'm working on it.

Morning:
-oatmeal w/ blueberries
-pineapple
-coffee
-protein bar

Lunch:
-ginormous spinach salad w/ egg, tuna, edamame, broccoli, cherry tomatos, cucmber, mushrooms, sweet potato, feta, craisins, almonds, pineapple, bacon, with asian dressing of some kind. i made this. it must have weighed 2 pounds. not much news on nutrition from work to share quite yet. oh, there was some discussion about the recent decaf coffee study linking decaf coffee with higher risk of heart disease around it being hugely overblown by the press. it was a study of only 187 people drinking 3-6 cups a day over only 3 months, and the 18% rise in non-esterified fatty acids (NEFA's) could be burned off by exercise anyway. not that i'm in any way considering going back to decaf, but it's not the recent study that's stopping me - it's my addiction/love affair with caffeine. may we never part again.
-mixed nuts

Dinner:
-roasted vegetables (carrots, mushrooms, little tiny cocktail onions, roasted red pepper) with green beans. from a frozen pack of veggies from trader joe's. there were these little things in there that confused me since they were shaped like little hershey's kisses and not like any vegetable i had ever seen, but they turned out to be little frozen hershey's kisses made of butter and herbs that melted in the pan as i cooked them. fascinating.
-butternut squash soup
-turkey chili
-3-bean salad
-omega-3 peanut butter with carrots. kind of an ADD dinner. this was mostly me wandering around the kitchen in a daze and eating things that were vaguely orange-red.

thank god i missed that whole "quitting coffee" thing you did! silly boy. what were you thinking? don't you know that the coffee is stronger than all of us? i love coffee, i like to think that my habit is under control... some might say that is a sign of a greater problem...
decaf, pffffft!
