137 Nias e Noites

Oven Roasted Chicken and Mashed Cauliflower

Tomato Islands Surrounded by Sea Salt Pork Pirates

I had an excellent work out today. I upped my speed and incline once again. Here are my exercise stats for the day:

Exercise Time: 65 minutes. Distance: 3.94 miles. Incline: 3.5 - 5.0. Speed: 3.5 - 4.5. Warm Up and Cool Down: Walking to and from the gym.

I've been listening to my IPod while doing my treadmill walking. It helps time pass much faster (than just thinking or watching random TV programs on the gym's public TV). So far I've been listening to Jimmy Moore's podcasts. I always learn something new and it keeps my brain occupied on things other than physical exertion.

PS - I'm officially on Twitter now. If any of you are also on there and would like to stay in contact in that way, please let me know. I go by the name "Healthy Fellow". :-)

Just popping in to say I listened to the podcast last night. You done such a great job. WTG!!!!! Very Nice!

Also wanted to ask how the cold pepperoni Zizza tasted??? Was it just as good cold? I love cold pizza.

PS I may be MIA for a few days starting Friday. I have great new over on my blog to share. ;)

Harry said...

Thanks, Jo! I'm very pleased to know you enjoyed it. :-)

The cold Zizza was good! I specifically chose to eat it cold to see if it would mimic cold pizza. I'm happy to say that it did!

I shall visit your blog shortly. Looking forward to reading your great news! :-)

Oh Twitter, I keep hearing about it but the whole concept elludes me hehehe

Is it worth it or is it just doubling up the other social networking sites I am on (Facebook)??

I followed you on Twitter but for the life of me I haven't found a good use for it yet. I'm a Twitter-noob. Facebook I like and find useful but I don't change or contribute to it much. Fun to see what friends are up to though.

Music and podcasts get me through the work day. :) I need to listen to yours again and find a copy of the movie you wrote screenplay for!

I've just discovered your blog and the one thing I love it a hint of what a successful low carb daily menu looks like. Wow,that really helps. But you gotta share what the heck is Choco-coffee? I read backwards and way back you say its cocoa powder,instant espresso, heavy cream and stevia!? You must love it, cause I see it on your daily menu, will you please be a little more clear on the ingredients? Pul-eez! Thanks!

Harry said...

Howdy, Erika!

Believe it or not ... I'm not on FaceBook! I just started Twitting? yesterday.

At this point, it's all too new for me to offer any useful observations.

I'm going to play around with it for awhile and see how it goes.

If you decide to hop on board the USS Twitter ... please say hello! :-)

Harry said...


I'm a complete Twitter newbie too. Let's compare notes as we go along and figure out how to use that darn thing! :-)

The film wasn't produced. It won a prestigious award and I got some industry attention for it but it came along at a bad time ... in terms of getting it produced.

Harry said...

Good day, Gayle. :-)

I like to give some of my recurring menu items catchy names ... just to keep things fun.

"ChocoCoffee" can be made in different ways - depending on your preference.

I just usually mix a few tablespoons of pure cocoa powder, a heaping teaspoon of instant coffee and about 1/8 - 1/4 of pure stevia powder. These are all approximate amounts. You can always adjust them based on what you like best taste-wise.

Then you can add some heavy cream or coconut milk or half-and-half to give it a richer, more mellow flavor. Without the addition of these, you'll have a very dark chocolaty taste.

Lately, I've just been drinking it "black" - without the cream or coconut milk. I do have a coconut oil chaser however. But that's mainly for it's health benefits. Though it does taste good also. :-)

I hope that answers your question. If not, please let know and I'll give it another shot!

Hey Harry and all! Just had to leave a note and say that I've read a few blogs before and enjoyed very much, but never considered *saving* the URL and going I have with yours. Ya know, its all timing, spirit or Karma..but for some reason (which I'm so grateful) your blog+postings+comments from your friends made a difference)! IT pushed me to make a low carb grocery list and got me to the store! Today is the first day of my new life! Maybe its the ease of honesty, a commonality w/ personality (which I enjoy very much) and your openness to be a real person that I can relate to in the struggle w/ trying to put together a daily menu that is easy to stick to>>>and not one of those over-complicated menu's that are so out there!! LOL new is my *blonde moment* question- when you are making your Choco Coffee..I get the ingredients..but are you adding hot water to this as if you were making hot chocolate? Cause I'm not seeing from the exact ingredients your giving me...its puddin!
So Harry, from the bottom of my heart..thanks for the great job here. Isn't it cool how we can really touch the life of people w/ such things? I've got you on Twitter, looking forward to the connection! I'll keep ya posted on my own success...thanks to you!

Harry said...

Thanks, Gayle! You made my day! :-)

Yes, I do add hot water to the cocoa, coffee and stevia powders. The heat helps the ingredients mix together better.

If you'd rather drink it cold - like chocolate milk ... you can always cool it off with an ice cube or add some heavy cream, half and half or coconut milk to the hot mixture. Or, just allow it to cool off with time.

Please keep in mind that the cocoa has a tendency to settle (at the bottom of the cup) after awhile. So keep stirring!

PS - There are tons of ways to play around with this recipe too. For instance, you can leave out the coffee and add a few drops of peppermint extract to make it a mint-chocolate drink.

I'll look out for you on Twitter!

Be well!
