Catching Up With A Few Weeks of Food Photos… SEE?! I’m Eating Healthy!
My food posts have been few and far between lately, but I am making good choices and cooking healthy meals. Here are a bunch of the meals I’ve enjoyed over the past few weeks – some at home, some at restaurants. I like posts like this because I can look back later and remind myself of what I’ve enjoyed… and what I want to make and eat again!
My friend Debbie took me to breakfast one day, as a thank you for helping out during a scary morning. She woke up at 4am to the sounds of branches creaking and breaking, and, seconds later, a 75-foot tree fell and crashed into the front of her house.
No one was hurt, but there’s substantial damage to the house, and Debbie’s car was totaled.
Ugh. Double ugh. Sorry for this tone-deaf transition, but… back to breakfast!
Debbie and her family had to move into a hotel, and one night I met them for dinner at Fuddrucker’s, a burger chain that has a location around the corner.
My friend Jocelyn gave me a present when I visited her in Ohio a couple weeks ago – a jar of Harry & David Pepper & Onion Relish that someone had gifted her that she had absolutely no interest in. And by “gave me a present,” I mean she slipped it in my bag when I wasn’t looking. Good ol’ Jocie!
They’re called Lesser Evil Egg White Curls, and I can’t say I’d get them again. I love egg whites (one of the best lean proteins around), but I didn’t care for the flavor of these curls, and they looked nothing like the image on the package (except for very basic shape). Calorie-wise, they’re not all that better for you – 130 calories per serving versus 150 in Cheetos Puffs. And they have more carbs than Cheetos Puffs – 14g in these, versus 13g. These do have triple the protein – 6g versus 2g in Cheetos Puffs, but if you’re looking to junk food to make up four extra grams of protein in your day, you’ve got bigger food issues. Seems like these are barely a lesser evil, so much so that if I’ve got a Cheetos craving, which I get a few times a year, I’m just going for the real deal and buying a small bag at a gas station.
Keep it up, David!

A big hello to everyone that’s discovering Keep It Up, David for the first time! I’m glad you’re here.
My name is David. I live in Michigan, and I’m 41 years old. In January 2010, I began eating better and exercising more, so I could lose weight. So far, so good – I’ve lost 160 pounds and am keeping it off! But it’s a tough road, and I need to keeping finding new ways to keep motivated and on-track.
