Day 29 DP - Gourmet Monday

Back to the grind at work today.  I had bunch of food ideas on my mind from my latest catch.  For breakfast I had 2 sushi bass rolls mixed with fresh greens that are finally popping out of my garden.  Ya-Hoo!  I also received another small gift from my chickens today - I'm planning on using the two eggs I have acquired in my fish preparation for dinner.

I had a weigh in today and I am at 183 pounds down from 202 at the start.  That's 19 pounds lost in 29 days.  My weight loss has significantly slowed in the past 2 weeks but it's still coming off and I expected that to happen.

Back to food - Rather than go on and on with writing, I took a bunch of photos today of my food options.  I made some nice looking dishes for lunch and tried something new for dinner.  I find that it always helps when I try to make food visually appealing as well. Read on. . .

Lunch: Bass sashimi with broccoli florets, endive and sashimi salad

Half of my rice remains.  Still have a double chin though.
