October 4

Hello everyone!!

Got an interesting lesson in tonic water tonite.  I had no idea it was a "drink" as opposed to water.  I was very surprised to find this out!  I've always thought of tonic water as a drink mixer.  That's it.  Fizzy water.  I had no clue it would contain high fructose corn syrup...or something called quinine.  This challenge is really opening my eyes!!

Breakfast: french toast made with Cinnamon Raisin bread.  I picked this up at the grocery yesterday and thought I'd give it a try.  It's in the organics section.  No high fructose corn syrup, artificial ingredients or preservatives.   Batter made with organic skim milk, local free range eggs, all natural vanilla and Saigon cinnamon.  My kids thought the whole wheat flavor was too strong, even with the coating.

Ingredients in bread (from company website:) INGREDIENTS: Whole Wheat Flour, Water, Raisins, Vital Wheat Gluten, Honey, Barley Malt, Yeast, Salt, Cultured Wheat Starch, Cinnamon, Soy Flour 

Morning snack: blood orange Chobani

Lunch:  grilled cheese sandwiches made with Boars Head white american and Honey Wheat bread.  Lightly buttered.  The bread is not the best choice, but has no artificial preservatives, colors or flavors or high fructose corn syrup.  But I sent my husband out for bread, and once again he thought he did good. :) I can say he didn't bring home Wonder bread...haha. (Yes, I know it's not made anymore. But you know what I mean.)

Afternoon snack: couple bowls (small) of Angie's Kettle Corn

Dinner: fried chicken (made by me) and a salad

Evening snack: glass of wine...and more popcorn. :)

Happy Eating!
