3 eggs fried in butter - 1.5g
One roll: 2 slices smoked turkey with a slice of jarlsberg and about five (they're much smaller) slices of salami - 2.8g
Half a BBQ chicken - 0.5g
Handful of almonds - 2.7g
Handful of pistachios, several rolls same as my morning tea roll - 14.1g
Three cups of ginger tea, one cup of black tea, about 8 glasses of water and half a cup of black coffee.
That gives a total of 21.6g carbs for today.
Thanks for all your posts guys!
Lynn, I have put a pic of mortadella on today's blog for you. I just googled 'mortadella'. Maybe you know it by another name? Even if you travel different parts of Australia, the same food is known by different names.
Vamin, for a second there I thought you really did think that was me in the picture! hehehe I can assure you it's not. I like to think I do have that kind of muscle tone.... it's just a bit covered up right now.
Harry, I really don't know if nitrate-free food is available in Aust. I've done lots of searching over the years and even asked people I know would know what nitrates are ... but no luck.
That why it's helpful, IMO, to combine uncured meats with other flavorful and fatty ingredients. I try to accomplish this by making turkey or ham "tacos". But, that's just my wacky solution. :-)
That's a nice idea! I tried the turkey in the rolls today after an idea I skimmed off you (I think) for the turkey tacos. Generally I don't really like turkey but like this it wasn't too bad - and super filling!
I'm not trusting my scales right now - I got on them this morning and it read 86.6kg. This is a 300g increase so I went to the loo and came back. 85.6kg... I very much doubt I pee'd a full litre. So back on I got and 87kg it read the next two times.
It's a brand new set of scales on a flat floor. Urgh, whatever.
