Wednesday 3 December 2008

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.


  1. What a cool picture. It looks delicious. I looked it up after reading your blog this morning and learned alot. I may get some at the grocery store here (Delaware)-they probably have it. I, too, am unhappy with the scale. We've got to keep going though!

  2. Good day, Erika.

    How often do you weigh yourself? I'm shooting for once a week. Tomorrow's my day of truth.

    Maybe it might help to took a little time away from the scale? Just focus on doing right by yourself and then check back in several days?

    Or, perhaps there's a market or pharmacy that has a scale that you can compare your weight on?

    It's cool that you're drinking ginger tea. It's very healthy for you. I think it's one of the best teas out there because it affects so many different systems relating to health.

    I'll keep on trying to find healthy alternatives to the cured meats. The more options we have to choose from the better!

    Be well!
