What I ate: October 12, 2010

Breakfast: Sausage, egg, and cheese English muffin. That's local Tangletown Farm antibiotic-free pork sausage (0.8 oz. cooked weight), a Pete and Gerry's organic egg, Barowski's organic whole wheat English muffin, and 0.5 oz. Cabot cheddar cheese. 436 calories.

Lunch: Spinach, hana katsuo, sardines, and rice with furikake. 221 calories. Aside from being tasty, filling enough, low in calories, and pretty healthy, I think I discovered why I like this meal so much. It's really, really salty! There's soy sauce in the spinach and on the sardines. And furikake (on the rice) and hana katso (in the spinach) are salty too. It's a good thing I don't have high blood pressure!

Dinner: Teriyaki barbecued pork with rice and broccoli. There's 3.6 oz. of pork on the plate, about 1 cup of rice, and 1/2 cup broccoli. 397 calories.

And I might have had Absolut mandarin and soda.

Weight at beginning of today: 114.8
Weight at beginning of the next day: 113.8

I'm not sure whether the next morning's weight was anomalously low (I did measure it three times), or today's starting weight was anomalously high.

And it might be a genetic disposition toward being able to metabolize white sushi rice, but I did consume nearly two cups (10.2 oz.) of white sushi rice today.
