That sounds good, CWS.

I had a bowl of Special K cereal with some strawberries and bananas, and a slice of multi grain toast with fig jam. The roadside stands have the most wonderful strawberries right now, juicy and red all the way through. Lucious!

I'm jealous of the fresh strawberries. I picked up two pineapples yesterday--ate one for lunch with black pepper and some balsamic vinegar. My intention was to juice them...

Busy day today, so I had a huge breakfast. I wasn't sure whether I would be fueled for the day or in a food coma. So far so good!

Now to get ready to run some errands on this beautiful sunny day.

I don't post on this topic simply because every morning I have the same thing. Now, for a person that just can't bear the idea of the same dinner the next night (or even leftovers from the previous nights' dinner) that's VERY strange!

Breakfast is always eggs (fixed any ol' way), toast of some variety and a huge cup of real coffee with cream and sugar. The only difference (between my childhood and now) is the number of eggs. I ate five eggs a day, bacon, maybe hashbrowns and other goodies up until my late 20s.

Now it's just two eggs.

And yes my cholesterol (and all those other things they measure for) has always been very low/normal (in my 30s) or (now) within normal range.

Go figure.

I've been obsessed with oatmeal in a Mason jar lately. Pint jar, half cup of oatmeal, (I use a mix of old-fashioned oats and steel-cut) milk to cover, a tablespoon of mixed dried berries and a dash of vanilla. Let it all soak overnight in the fridge, then microwave for about a minute, stir and bring it to boil again in the ennukolator.

Add another tablespoon of assorted roasted nuts (using up my fall pecans now) and it's just gooey incredibleness. Put the lid on, eat it when I get to work. So much better than a mix, and a lot less messy than traditional oatmeal cooking, especially when nobody else in the house will eat oatmeal.

Two poached eggs, 1/2 c edamame (steamed), 1/2 c savory oatmeal and a slice of fresh pineapple. I think I did a good job on the protein this morning. (1 serving of edamame = ~12 g of protein + the approx 16 g of protein in the two eggs and 3 g in the oatmeal puts me at 31 g). I'm full. For those who don't like eggs, edamame is a good source of protein. I could see making edamame hummus and having that on toasted wholewheat pita bread as a spread or a dip for veggies in the morning (or for a mid-morning snack).

According to UMMS: Protein Calculator, for my age, gender, height, and activity level, my minimum amount of protein / day is 78 g.
