What I ate: October 8, 2010

Breakfast: 1 scrambled egg, 3 slices of Vermont Smoke & Cure bacon, and 1 slice of Vermont Bread Company whole wheat bread with Earth Balance buttery spread.

ate.20101008.b.jpgLunch: Beef with broccoli and scallions and rice. That 2.4 oz. of leftover steak (previously vacuum sealed and frozen). The sauce is a little Lee Kum Kee vegetarian stir-fry sauce and soy sauce.

ate.20101008.l.jpgDinner: Meatloaf with gravy, rice, and broccoli. Yes, I realize that I had beef, broccoli, and rice for lunch as well. It was still on my mind, apparently. The meatloaf is local Tangletown Farm organic ground beef that I previously made vacuum sealed and froze. I just take the frozen package and cook it in the sous vide machine at 133°F for 45 minutes or so. And frozen gravy must always be heated on the stove, never in the microwave, because otherwise its doesn't return to the correct gravy consistency.

Snack: 1/8 cup of air popped popcorn with 1 tbsp. butter and salt.

Weight at start of the this day: 114.2 lbs.
Weight at start of the next day: 114.8 lbs.

I probably shouldn't have had popcorn after eating a big serving of meatloaf and gravy. And I had a big lunch. And I did basically no physical activity. I will have to rectify that tomorrow!
