"Do you know that the harder thing to do and the right thing to do are usually the same thing? Nothing that has meaning is easy. 'Easy' doesn't enter into grown-up life." Michael Caine speaking to Nicholas Cage, in The Weather Man - written by Steve Conrad

I was thinking back on yesterday and I noticed that my food/caloric intake was probably quite low. That's a problem that I rarely have - at least not in many, many years.

My loosely-tailored plan is to eat three robust meals a day. No snacks in-between (apart for my coffee-breaks). I think this may be a better way to go than to eat more frequently - from a physiological and weight standpoint.

I've got some cooking planned for later today. On the menu is some ground lamb with grilled onions, herbs and spices. I plan on mixing that with my leftover mashed cauliflower for dinner. Kind of like a shepherds pie of sorts.

More commentary to come ...

Wednesday - January 14, 2009

10:00 am

+ a cup of "hard choco-coffee" - (2 tablespoons of cocoa powder, 1 teaspoon of instant coffee, and hot water)

note: I forgot to add the packets of Also Salt and stevia + FOS this morning. I noticed after my first sip but decided to ride it out. It tasted just fine. Not sweet at all, but fine.

12:30 pm

+ homemade vegetable soup - (ultra-fatty pork broth and about a cup of frozen organic green beans). I blended these ingredients into a smooth consistency, using my handy-dandy immersion blender.

3:30 pm

+ approx. 3 oz. of natural prosciutto

+ a whole organic avocado

+ approx. 3 oz of soft goat's cheese

+ a glass of red wine

6:00 pm

+ a cup of instant organic coffee with a splash of milk and one packet of stevia + FOS

8:45 pm

+ ground lamb with grilled onions

+ homemade mashed cauliflower

Exercise Amount: TBD

Meditation Time: TBD

More to come ... I hope!

That's kind of you to say, Sadekat. :)

Thanks, NewVision. My wife had to take several photos to get one that didn't look too goofy. :)
