This Looks Gross, But Is Actually Quite Delicious

One of my co-workers expressed concern when she saw me eating my newest calcium-delivery vehicle, plain yogurt with Trader Joe's salsa verde. It does look rather disgusting, but it's really, really yummy! The problem is, the salsa verde turns the yogurt a rather unappetizing shade of green. I definitely won't be serving it at any dinner parties, but considering that it delivers 30% of the RDA of calcium and 12 g protein all in 130 calories, it's well worth it. And I really like the taste.

Today's other nutrition-delivery vehicles included:

1 cup eggwhites, just a little salt and pepper on top -- 140
leftover vegetable tray soup -- right around 200
latte with skim -- 80

550 so far for today.

Not sure what I'll have for dinner... tonight may be a much needed quiet evening at home, great for catching up on my reading. I bought a copy of Ray Kurzweil's new book, _Fantastic Voyage_. Not only is he a fellow contributor to the M Prize (that's www.mprize.org for those of you who have been living under a rock for the last month) he is also the person who first informed me about CR, via his old book _The 10% Solution_.

Speaking of the M Prize, congratulations to the two newest CR members of the Three Hundred, Kenton and Khurram! Yea!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    That yogurt concoction sounds pretty good to me.
    I love trader joes fat-free plain yogurt.
    I actually stir cayenne pepper into it and eat it just like that. I would try the salsa verde but I find that salsas are extremely high in sodium, so I skip them.
