    you should eat better when you are working long hours. It'll be easier to focus and you'll make less mistakes...

    Ugh.
    I took the day off today to attend the retirement luncheon for a dear friend of mine on the Eastern Shore of Maryland (it's a 2 hour drive to the restaurant, which is why it took the whole day). I scoped out the menu of the place on line - it all looked yummy - so I had a very light breakfast, anticipating a HUGE lunch. We got into town early, and we found the guest of honor at the local maritime museum. On a lark, I said to him "Hey, let's go to the restaurant before anyone gets there, and have a Bloody Mary while we're waiting!"
    Well, they all thought that was just about the best idea since sliced bread!!
    So off we went.
    It ended up being a bloody day, indeed, for Mary, as pretty much all of the guests thought that sounded just fine!
    And we didn't eat off the menu -- our guest of honor pre-ordered a buffet of local faves, including oyster stew (yum!), chicken Chesapeake (with lump crab, of course), rockfish, and various local and in-season veges. And cheesecake for dessert.
    Oh, my. It was a feast to bust a gut. I don't think I'll be reporting in for that weight loss challenge this week!

    Enjoy the learning process!
    When you start roasting garlic cloves with the the zuchhini, it gets even yummier. Just take a couple of cloves (not the whole bulb if you don't like that much garlic) and cover lightly with foil, put on same sheet/ dish that has your zucchini. Might take abit longer than 45 min.

    Yummy dinner tonight - local eggs scrambled, with a thin sliver of goat cheese on top (called Asia Luv - has sesame, ginger, etc) nestled up against a pile of (again locally grown) shitake mushrooms sauteed. A big pile of sauteed zucchini on the side. All from within 60 miles of home! Yahoo!

    Brunch (I got up WAAY late today...): Cereal with 1% milk
    S: Pumpkin spice latte.
    D: Chicken cooked with onions and carrots, rice, cabbage. It would have been healthy if I hadn't insisted on cooking the onion+carrots...and the cabbage...and finishing the sauce for the chicken with butter. I think I used about a tablespoon and a half. It was really good and got the cabbage out of the fridge, though. Dessert was more chocolate than I care to admit.

    I made a great dinner last night. Ground turkey mixed with on egg and chopped kale that I had previously cooked with olive oil and garlic. I made that into turkey-burgers. Along side that, I had mashed sweet potatoes with a bit of butter. I bought a bunch of sweet potatoes earlier in the week and baked them all and put them in the fridge. That way, all I have to do is heat them up quickly.

    I also had some peas--they were canned but good, small, young peas.

    And homemade bread, of course. And red wine, of course.

    A delicious and healthy meal with lots of veggies. I didn't have any dessert--I was full!

    Yum...is the farmer's market where I met you still going on in the winter (location not disclosed here)? I'll be in town next week and was thinking of going, if it's open.

    It's open 8-12 this coming Saturday (11/21), Tuesday the 24th from 3-5:30 (the Turkey Day market!), and is closed for the Saturday after Thanksgiving (guess they figure everyone will still be stuffed!). It opens back up on 12/5, but the hours change to 10-12 for the winter. Hope you can make it - there's still lots of yummy food (we're getting great lettuce, good winter greens, there will be cheese, there might be one more week of mushrooms, and then they are gone for the season, and, of course, pies)!

    I'm definitely going to have to borrow your Turkey Burger idea - it sounds fabulous!!

    I skipped breakfast this morning...
    Lunch: cup of coffee and a scone from Starbucks
    S: a honeycrisp apple
    Dinner: A leftover burger patty from last night broken up and mixed with leftover rice. It wasn't bad, considering the difference between the seasoning in the rice (it was green rice) and that in the burger. A couple of Cadbury's chocolate-covered digestives for dessert, and I think I'll follow that up with an apple.

    Stir fry is a great way to use up leftover veges.
    A bit of onion, left over broccoli, a couple sections of bell pepper, and a single salmon fillet, stir fried with soy sauce and wasabi, over rice.
    Just enough to feed 2 with no leftovers.
    Yum.

    Today was a travel day for me. Curious how others manage healthy eating during travel, since the season is upon us. I typically don't have much of an appetite when I am sitting on planes all day, but I do need to have something in my stomach.

    Coffee and a stale donut for breakfast, then an hour of Pilates then straight to the airport. I only had time to get another coffee and a ham/swiss ciabatta sandwich at Starbucks. The sandwich was so-so, but at least it was better than the snack box (three different kinds of crackers, chips, fake cheese spread) that they offered. Ate half the sandwich before getting on flight #1, which was four hours. Ate the second half before getting on flight #2.

    Maybe it was the airports I was passing through today, but NOTHING looked appetizing, so I chose portability above all.

    Had a nice bowl of Taiwanese rice porridge when I finally arrived at my parents' place.

    Yesterday:
    B: 2 scrambled eggs in an omelet with goat cheese and salsa. One corn tortilla, browned on the gas burner. very small glass of blueberry juice

    I admit to nibbling as I was preparing bread stuffing for turkey and cranberry mold (mostly some of the baguette I was using)

    L: veggie roll up at local french bistro. it had hummus and a variety of beans, veggies.
    (we rode to the bistro on the Jamis' in a drizzle that became more pronounced on the way home... 8.9 miles)

    D: small sandwich of baked eggplant, goat cheese, and yellow pepper on left over baguette, with a small bowl of sweet potato soup, 2 pieces of dark chocolate
    s: about half a slice of left over raisin bread challah french toast

    Today: B: organic oatmeal with flax seed and skim milk, tomato, low salt ham (3 slices) and a slice of low fat provolone. small glass of grapefruit juice, 2 cups of coffee

    Trying to mentally prepare myself to not eat too much later today and to get in at least 12 miles on the bike or a 3 mile walk

    Breakfast: Steel Cut Oats with raisins. Grapefruit.

    pre-ride snack: mini Lara Bar
    During 51 mile ride: clif bar, kashi tlc bar, gu2o (500 cals total)

    lunch: homemade carrot ginger soup. 1 slice homemade bread.

    dinner: huge green salad with 3 oz turkey breast (leftover from Thursday) and homemade balsamic vinaigrette. Steamed broccoli & cauliflower with a tablespoon of cranberry sauce.

    I'm still hungry, but that's just tough luck for me. I overindulged on Thanksgiving and now need to do damage control. Think I'll go have a cup of tea.
