Today is the two year mark for my blog. I celebrated with some dog walking at the Humane Society of Boulder Valley (I volunteer weekly), a salmon burger and romaine salad, rowing at the gym, and then some blueberries, strawberries, and mango with yogurt and All Bran (which really was quite good). Here’s to another year!

I made an interesting and embarrassing discovery yesterday. Worse, because it uncovered a mistake that I have made more than once. Somehow I had gotten it into my head that a gram of protein is 7 calories, when it is in fact 4 calories. The same as carbohydrates. (Alcohol is 7 calories per gram). Needless to say I thought it was INCREDIBLY easy to get 40% of my calories from protein even without meat. That’s because I wasn’t. My 100 grams of protein is much closer to 23% of my calories from fat, not 40% as I had reported in my post Body Fat Loss Contest – Weeks 1 & 2. That is all.

Too busy eating for a long post today! The best Thanksgiving dinners are the ones where everyone splits up the dishes and then brings them to add to the feast. My mom made turkey, stuffing and gravy, my dad the rolls, my brother the green bean casserole, my mother-in-law the cranberry salad, pumpkin pie, and cherry tart, and I made the chipotle mashed sweet potoatoes and cabbage, fennel and carrot salad with coconut lime dressing. YUM!
