Two zucchini fritters, kimchi, and the last of the "rice of the prairies."

The eggs and milk would not provide any fiber and I think the fiber in the bran cereal is a big factor, but I do understand your point about the sugar.
I think the scientific evidence is clear that eating cholesterol does not cause high blood cholesterol. It's not that simple.

With vacations, family reunions, and other events, she has been struggling to get back on track and stay there. Presently SimonBaker seems to be on a plateau. The hardest part of any diet. I am hoping that her numbers take a big dip real soon to help her get back on track. Nothing like the loss of five pounds or even more between weigh-ins to get back your resolve.
No, you were responding to her post of raisin bran and coffee. Look earlier in the thread for this:

You are right. I took it as a raisin bran muffin. My bad!

All right, y'all are gonna love this. They are having a banana festival at our port because that's where most of the bananas are imported. They're having a recipe contest and I am developing three unique recipes to submit: Banana Split Pancakes, Bananas Foster Bundt Cake, and Banana Daiquiri Cupcakes.

On Thursday I took my griddle and spatula to work (we have two full kitchens, one on each floor) and made everyone banana split pancakes. Each plate had a banana cut in half lengthwise. On these banana slices were three Silver Dollar pancakes with 1% (by weight) Amoretti Banana Split Extract in the batter; one pancake had pineapple tidbits and was covered in Amoretti Pineapple syrup, the center pancake had chocolate chips and was covered in Amoretti Crema di Dark Chocolate syrup, and the third pancake had strawberry bits and was covered in Amoretti Strawberry Syrup. Each pancake was then topped with a dollop of whipped cream and the center dollop had a maraschino cherry sitting on top. Everyone enjoyed their breakfast!

I'll be attempting the bananas foster bundt cake this evening and taking it to the office tomorrow and the Banana Daiquiri Cupcakes later in the week, but that's for future What Are You Baking Today threads.

It sure is nice to have an office full of Guinea pigs!

Sir Loin, did you win?? That sounds amazing!

This morning, I foraged for breakfast. I had some Triscuits topped with Havarti cheese and some leftover cooked chicken dipped in tzatziki.

Well, so far I have only won the hearts and minds of the office staff. The contest isn't until 26 September. I'll let my Guinea pigs sample all three items and vote to decide which should be summited, unless Amoretti wants to come up with the $25.00 entry fee for each entry. You get a Banana Festival t-shirt for entering, which might be worth 25 bucks, but it's definitely not worth 75 bucks!
