What I ate: October 16, 2010

Breakfast: 1 1/2 slices of Vermont Bread Company alfalfa sprout French toast, 3 slices of Vermont Smoke and Cure bacon, and 0.5 oz. real Vermont maple syrup. 452 calories.

ate.20101016.b.jpgSnack: Half of an empire apple. You'll notice it's a little discolored - I did an experiment to see if just vacuum sealing was enough, or whether I also needed to include lemon juice or something of that nature. It would seem so. 37 calories.

Lunch: Spinach, hana katsuo, sardines, and rice with furikake. 221 calories.

ate.20101016.l.jpgSnack: 0.3 oz. of Mt. Mansfield Creamery Goldolier cheese on two Kashi heart to heart roasted garlic crackers. Though in retrospect I should have used a plain cracker because the herbed Havarti cheese didn't really go with the roasted garlic crackers. About 75 calories.

ate.20101016.s3.jpgI picked up this cheese at the Farmers Market today - it's an herbed Havarti cow's milk cheese with garlic, onion, parsley, celery, and chives.

ate.20101016.s2.jpgDinner: Roasted duck with pomegranate chili sauce, buttercup squash roasted with butter and maple syrup, and garlic Brussels sprouts. Calorie count is unknown, but probably a little high. There's 3.5 oz. of duck in the serving.

Dessert: 1 square of Lake Champlain Chocolate raspberry truffle. 60 calories.

Snack: 0.7 oz. popcorn, air popped, with 1/2 tbsp. melted butter and salt. 110 calories.

No running on the weekends but I did walk to the Coop (1.5 miles) and the farmers market (less than a mile).

Weight at beginning of the day: 113.8 lbs.
Weight at the beginning of the next day: 113.8 lbs.

I really can't explain that. I checked multiple times. I thought for sure the multiple snacks and big plate of duck would have a detrimental effect on my weight!
