I begin my day with 3.29.
I made dirty rice for breakfast, a whole lot of seasoning the chicken I had picked from the bones and rice. It cost .92 to make but I ate only half.
Dirty Rice .46
I ate a portion of the soba noodles with peanut sauce before leaving the house. Cheap lunch .29.
I came home from an interview with SF Foodie and a gym trip HUNGRY. I had a can of cream of chicken soup left on my doorstep with a note. This item is always in stock at the local food pantry, not surprising as it is the kind of thing people would donate. I am asked to work with it and come up with a recipe. For my Asian neighbor I knew Tuna noodle casserole would not do. It was soup so I made soup...a congee lite.
Leftover dirty rice .46
Stock from yesterday .40
Chard from the garden .10
Total for the pot .96.
Per cup that came to .19
I had 3 cups.
And onto dinner I took 3 ounces of the Halal beef some broccoli, some pea shoots and rice.
Pea shoot .09
The beef was some of the best I have had and the meal came together beautifully. I am afraid of what my day total will be.
I reduced my deficit down to .17. I will make it. I have to say that this meal made me feel really good.
My calories came in at 1,573 with about half of them from the rice. I had a lot of rice today. But so what, it is calories that make you fat not carbohydrates. Trust me when I tell you at this calorie level I am not carrying extra weight around.
I am happy that I have a muti-vitamin to take every day along with extra C. Without that I am not sure my energy would be as high as it is.
