So, I just had a bacon and egg sandwich, and it cost me no more than 250 calories. What is up with the universe?
When I started restricting, there were some things that I cut out of my diet without even bothering to check their calorie count: pizza, cheesecake, biscuits, and bacon, to name but a few.
And all was well and dandy (apart from the cheesecake cravings...) until I casually picked up a pack of back bacon in a supermarket and looked at the nutritional info.
"70 calories a rasher," I read.
Intrigued, I put it down, and picked up some bacon medallions (like normal bacon, but without the weird extension with the annoying fat that I always cut of anyway... wow, bacon is hard to explain without sounding like a lunatic), and read...
"31 calories a rasher."
Holy shit. When did the world turn upside down?? Suffice to say, they were deposited in my basket in a somewhat dazed state. (As in, I was dazed, not the bacon.)
So I fried two rashers and an egg in a spray or two of FryLight, and had then with two slices of Weightwatchers Malted Danish bread (I don't use Weightwatchers, and frankly I don't even understand them - what is god's name are 'points', I ask you? We already have units for measuring food, more than enough in fact, chiefly grams and calories. So be off without your 'points'. Crazy people. But anyway, the bread - it's 51 calories a slice. What's not to like?), and for less than 250 calories and a full 22g of protein, I seem to have made a bacon and egg sandwich healthy...
Apologies for slightly random post, and also for strange frequency of parentheses- (apparently I have lots to say today).
