And of course a nice big salad. Romaine, arugula, tomato, scallion, cucumber, field greens and grandma's dressing.

But lunch today was a treat. Had to live in the real world and go out with customers.
You want to know what I had?
A half pound kobe beef burger with BUN. Absolutely delicious.
The bun has approx. 30 grams of carbs, so make sure you eat clean for the rest of the day.
In my opinion a roll like that has zero nutritional value, but once in a blue moon it's like a little treat. For what it's worth, I do feel it. It makes me a little tired and fuzzy. It's interesting because I can eat different kinds of tubers with no ill effects. I've noticed over time that I really cheat less and less.
Have a wonderful day.

Here's red cabbage, green cabbage, red onion and garlic. And below the rest of the ingredients; skinless chicken thighs, pepper, oregano and a beer.
Slice, dice and chop all, toss together in a large pan or crockpot, add a beer and let it simmer on low heat for about 4 hours. Simple right? Not shown was the salad I made with this which is again simple and tasty. Romaine lettuce, spinach and arugula. 2 scallions and half a cucumber. EVOO and a dash of balsamic.
Now to be perfectly honest...............the salad was DELICIOUS........however....... the chicken didn't come out the way I hoped. It's the reality of cooking, not everything comes out perfect, but hey, that's ok right?
Enjoy the day!!!!

So you think my portions are small?
Keep in mind that I'm posting mostly "break-fast" meals.
If you check out some of Art Devany's break fast meals, you'll see that they share a lot of similarities.
To give you a look at some of my bigger meals of the day, I will post some lunch and dinner pictures for a while. Lunch is usually the biggest meal of the day for me.
2 eggs, 3 strips of bacon, a few apples slices and champagne grapes
Make it a great day, if you slipped a little yesterday in regards to your eating or workouts.......don't sweat it. Today is a new day. Keep going.

3/4 of a fresh peach. Blueberries, a few pecans, 2 boiled egss and 2 slices of salami. And thanks to Mark Sisson some vitamins. (they are truly the best).
How do you keep it simple and continues?

And like my dad always says "no matter what happens in your life, no-one can ever take away your memories and experiences."
I dropped some weight over the vacation. Partly due to the constant activities, but mostly because when I ate "on the road food" I followed it up with some IF.
Like I said earlier, it's a little more challenging to stick to your way of eating if you are not preparing it yourself, but by no means impossible.
Breakfast this morning;
Preheat oven to 375.
Pound flat 2 skinless chicken thighs. Sprinkle with; oregano, cilantro, paprika and garlic powder.
1/2 a tbsp of evoo drizzled on both.
Break out that cast iron skillet, place on burner, sear on both sides, add 2 cloves of garlic, and 4-5 olives on the side of the pan. Now add about 1/2 a cup of water (don't pour it directly on anything in the pan) and stick it in the oven for about 10-12 minutes.
I also had 2 large slices of a fresh Georgia peach with it.
Ahhhh.....like I said, it's good to be back ;-)
The Toccoa River. In the ASKA adventure area of Blue Ridge, Georgia.
That mountain mist thing is just way cool........
Great trails for hiking and running.......
Make it a great day everyone!

Anyone know why perhaps?
After horseback riding through the mountains this morning we were all famished.
Stopped for lunch at a local BBQ restaurant.
Not always easy to stick with your regular diet while on the road, but the ribs were wonderful!!!
I did not eat my "garlic toast", but did eat a few pieces of fried okra.
Tomorrow we will be panning for some gold.
