Choices, choices, choices...
Last Saturday, I had a nice weigh-in, then I was ready to eat! My two boys and I were bachelors because our women did a sleepover at a friends house where they watched "Steel Magnolias". This is definitely a chick-flick (though I have seen it more times than I care to admit), so the boys and I opted out.
So, the boys decided they wanted breakfast out. As usual, they chose McDonalds which is so cheap and I reluctantly must admit, very tasty. The sausage egg mcmuffins are my favorite, but I also like those little sausage burritos and I believe that they put crack cocaine in their pancakes, because they call to me...maybe the best pancakes anywhere!
But we had one stop to make first. We drove to Subway, which is nearby. They said "welcome back" because our family is in there a bit more often since I started The Clydesdale Project...the kids even prefer it to McDonalds for lunch or dinner!
I ordered three "egg white melts". Samson looked at me like I was crazy, for ordering three. It was a little heavy for my normal breakfast, but at 160 calories each, it only totalled 480 calories. Not bad for a Saturday breakfast, when I knew we'd be cycling at least 13 miles that day. I added spinach and tomatoes. Tasty.
This was just another eye-opening experience as I continue on this path toward better eating...and passing along those lessons to my family.
