Breakfast for Dinner

As an experiment, I attempted and succeeded in eating three real meals - no meal replacements today.

9:30 am

+ a shot of organic espresso

11:30 am

+ 2 small organic tomatoes, sliced and topped with organic sour cream and raw Val D'Aosta Fontina Alp 100 cheese

+ thick sliced, natural chipotle salami

3:15 pm

+ "Santa Fe" (spicy) catfish fillet

+ 1/2 cup of homemade mashed cauliflower

4:45 pm

+ a shot of organic espresso

7:30 pm (pictured above)

+ scrambled cheesy eggs - organic omega-3 eggs, crumbled feta cheese, a splash of DHA-enriched organic 2% milk, sea salt and fresh cracked organic pepper

+ several slices of natural bacon

+ 3/4 of organic avocado

More to come ... I hope!

I like how the food is always plated so artfully. I do that for other people but my own plate is usually all business and little care to how it looks.

Looks like your experiment turned out great. :)
Have a great Wednesday!

Thanks, Oct. :-)

My wife kids about my plating style. She notes that I tend toward a geometrical way of plating. It's funny because I was never very good at geometry! :-)

I'm usually more casual about the plating when I'm not snapping a photo of it for the blog.

Harry said...

Thanks, Jo. It turned out pretty well, I think.

I hope your Wednesday is a winner as well. :-)

I try to be artsy when I photog my food too, and when I prepare a plate for anyone else. normally, I just slop it on the plate and hope I make it to the table without tripping. :)

By the end of the day, how did you feel with 3 regular meals?

Also, How long has it been since you ate 3 regular meals?

It's probably been at least a few weeks since I ate 3 actual meals. I find the meal replacement shakes to be so convenient that it's hard to avoid them. I also think they provide good nutrition.

I do believe that eating actual "real" food does satisfy my hunger better. That's the biggest impression I got from yesterdays experiment. That makes sense to me too - being as though liquids tend to be processed more quickly than solids.

I know what you mean about not tripping. I'm a bit on the clumsy side myself. Let's just say we get a lot of new dishes and glasses around here. ;-)
