    B: last of the current baked egg fritata/casserole/whatever it is, coffee, bacon
    L: shrimp, a bit of roasted mustard glazed chicken, and some broccoli salad
    500-swing kettlebell workout
    D: (early) last of the chocolate sweet potato chili (more in freezer) over spaghetti squash.
    S: as early as I ate dinner, will probably have a small snack of the pulled pork that is currently brazing over some baby greens. Or some roasted kale (that stuff is like crack!)

    Currently LOVING hot peppermint tea with 100% cacoa powder mixed in - as there is no sugar at all and full of antioxidents it is a guilt free treat! No other chocolate for a time, need to resist this growing sweet tooth.

    I make it Whole Foods sells Navitas 100% Cacoa Powder and Nibs, I get both. It is actually cheaper at the local Whole Foods than from Amazon - the nibs are a bit more expensive, I get the 8 ounce size. I've experimented with how much to add to my hot peppermint tea, and sometimes I toss in a few Cacoa Nibs as well, they are a little chewy I mainly use the powder for tea and coffee, but I've a few recipes that I use it in as well. The 8 ounces, even though I use it daily, lasts me roughly 6-7 weeks. Perhaps a bit longer if I don't make the chocolate chili very often as I use more than the recipe calls for.

    The tea is very satisfying, but if you try it don't be shy about how much you put in. I use far more in my tea than I do coffee - about twice as much. If you do decide to try the nibs, look at the label carefully as they do sell a sweetened version. To me that defeats one of the purposes for using it! I've never seen a sweetened version of the powder however, which is good. I've heard of some grinding the nibs in a hand-coffee grinder and treating it as coffee - but of course that is the nibs (they look like shavings of the bean), not the powder.

    You know, I have never been in a local Whole Foods; in fact, the only one I've been to was in Boulder, in 2002, when we took DS #2 to look at CU. There is one in the next town, so I guess I'll head over.

    Whole Foods charges just under $10 for 8 ounces of the powder, and I think I paid $11 for the nibs (though you probably just want to start with the powder). You might be able to find a lower price that would justify the shipping online - I live about a 15 minute drive so I just get in the car.

    On the subject of nibs. These are roasted pieces of the cacoa bean, and I am here to tell you that a few in hot tea or coffee makes them soft and yummy-chewy. I am going to grind them for some "choffy", basically treat them like coffee. We will see how it works I suspect the nibs will work even better in my chili and a dry rub that I already use the powder for!

    When I woke up, I was wavering about riding to work. I finally decided not to, got dressed, and was dawdling before eating. Then, my DH called and said the rain was not coming in until later and it was actually getting sunny out. So... I quickly got into my bike clothes, packed my pannier, got my bike ready, while I was drinking coffee. Oh no, I had to eat!
    B: one slice of raisin spelt bread with almond butter
    S: at about 11, I ate the banana I brought with me and half a Lara Bar
    rode home at about 12:15 and had breakfast for lunch
    L: egg white, red pepper, sprinkle of goat cheese omelette, 1/4 avocado, an orange, more coffee
    S: apple
    D: went out to dinner. salad with 2 small romaine heads and beets/vinaigrette, roasted salmon with tapenade, I ate about 3/4, spinach, roasted fingerling potatoes, of which I had 2 or 3. glass of red wine

    B: 2 waffles with walnuts, dried cranberries, 1.5 turkey sausages, strawberries, blueberries, coffee
    30 mile ride, moderately hilly. Ate a Lara Bar during the ride, one bottle of water
    L: farro burger patty, 1/4 avocado, small sweet potato, an apple, more water
    S: nibbled on red pepper slices and carrots while I was cooking dinner
    D: I made vegetarian lentil soup with dumplings. The recipe was in the newspaper... really good, but next time I am going to use the low salt veggie broth instead of the bullion cubes and probably forgo the dumplings. I feel all puffy from the salt this morning and my weight is up.

    Weight was down this morning by 3 pounds, I KNOW I've not been eating enough from being sick but goodness, probably just less water retention since I've not been on my usual workout schedule this week. This is not the way I want to hit my weight goal! Rest day today, though part of me really wants to go out and do some trail running. Sunny day, supposed to reach the high 50's today...but still have a pretty deep cough so...nope. I want to be 100%, or as close to it as I can manage, for my group training Tuesday, and kettlebell training on Wed. I worked out yesterday with kettlebells at home and am resisting that idea now.

    B: 2 eggs over a few ounces of roasted butternut squash
    L: crab salad (crab, veggies, an egg and homemade mayo)...there wasn't that much of it but I couldn't eat it all

    I need some calories though, will probably have a banana and a couple squares of chocolate in a bit, or else some banana and coconut manna

    D: don't know yet, will probably roast some chicken and kale with the remainder of some spaghetti squash, small salad with home-made dressing.
