-- Cycling: 30 miles (2 hours) at moderate/hard effort --

Crackers & cheese (6 whole wheat crackers & colby-jack cheese slices w/ a little horseraddish thrown in for fun)

  1. OMG, you're opening up a whole can of worms by going public, here. Ready for your critique? Here it is.

    1. You aren't matching your good carbs with enough protein. Add a stick of cheese to those fruit snacks.

    2. This looks like a starvation diet (HALF a chicken breast? Gawd, I'd die.) You can have several CUPS of those veggies -- spinach, brocolli (how is that word spelled?) etc.

    Now the good stuff:

    1. You are SO SMART to keep your blood sugar regulated by snacking throughout the day.

    2. Yay for you actually looking at what you eat. Most people never even consider it.

    3. Don't forget a treat now and then. I recommend chocolate, but whatevs. :)

    Please don't block my ISP for commenting all the time. I love reading your blog!

  2. No prob. Thanks for the tip about combining carbs with fruit. It was a big chicken breast and I prolly had 300-400 calories in cheese and crackers right before it so it wasn't too bad.
