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.

 ate.2011.03.13.s1.jpgIn 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.
