Hi all, not much new to report. same old, same old. Had an awesome mountain bike ride in Moab. Hope to repeat tomorrow along with a nice hike in Arches. fun!
Today I supplemented what I had planned to eat with an apple and peach, increasing my calories to 1455. That made me feel much better--I was very hungry this morning and it makes it harder for me to sleep. Clearly 1272 calories is not enough for me. 1400-1600 seems about right. Tomorrow's meals are almost a repeat of today's. The best fruit in the local store to me looks to be the honeycrisp apples so that's what I'm eating. Surprisingly the store had jicama so I got to include that again in tomorrow's meals. It's a gigantic one. I think the bigger ones aren't as sweet. But it's still good. My broccoli went bad so I threw it out. I tried some conventional carrots from the store and didn't like them. So I haven't got a good carrot since California. Whole Foods may be expensive but their produce really does taste better. I wonder if most people in the US have never tasted a good carrot. They don't know what they are missing. Okay, after that blathering here are tomorrow's meals.
brekky: oatmeal with apple and raisins and nuts and seeds. mmmm, can't wait.
lunch and dinner: salad with romaine, spring greens, cabbage, cauliflower, jicama, lime juice, cilantro, apple, nuts and seeds, chickpeas.
snack/emergency food for mountain bike ride: small handful of raisins. I almost never feel a need to eat during exercise, but since I'm in the desert riding alone I may as well be a little cautious and bring a little food. Water seems to me to be way more important and I will bring a lot of that. But the food could give me a boost if I'm feeling tired on the way back.
yikes, time flies, time for bed. let me know how things are going for you. oh, here's tomorrow's food summary [edited later to reflect the extra sugar snap peas I had after dinner, and I had forgotten to add in the romaine]:
