2 slices whole wheat bread, toasted
4 slices turkey bacon
1 slice juicy tomato
1/4 avocado, sliced
I go back and forth between center cut bacon, which is a leaner cut of real pork bacon, and turkey bacon. The calorie and fat content is almost identical. Sometimes I don't like the way turkey bacon looks and tastes completely fake and processed. Anyone else have this issue?
My sister recently told me a secret to crisping up turkey bacon by adding a bit of EVO (extra virgin olive oil) to the pan when frying. Even though this adds calories, I tried this secret in the form of EVO Pam cooking spray when I made this turkey bacon and it really does work though the turkey bacon does come out a lot more greasy.
Bacon and fresh CSA tomato - best tomato I've ever tasted!
Finished product - only 300 calories - yum yum yum
Weigh in #4
So I've missed the last two weeks of weigh ins because of vacation. As you know from my previous post, I have been dreading this weigh in. It actually wasn't AS BAD as I thought it would be. In all honesty, I weighed myself when I returned and I've lost quite a bit just by being back in my normal routine.
6/27 weight 323.4
today's weight 327.4
Total gain: 4.0 pounds
Total lost: 2.0 pounds
My fear initially was being back to square one (or worse weighing more than when I started this blog), and although I did gain, I didn't gain it all back so now in my mind it's just something I have to work at - learning to be in control of my new lifestyle.
