No HFCS - Monday Ingestion

Morning:
1 ounce Kyani Sunrise
1 - 2 ounces Coffeemate Creme Brulee non-dairy creamer
Coffee

What I didn't eat:
Brown Sugar Cinnamon Pop Tarts - hmm, maybe these should be renamed Brown High Fructose Corn Syrup Cinnamon Pop Tarts?

Morning Snack:
Carrot sticks
Celery sticks
Cheddar cheese squares
Ham rolls
Turkey rolls
Wheat thins - damned things have HFCS in them, ARGGGG!
Apple wedges
This seems like a lot but I had just a couple of pieces of each

And I just found out that Wheat Thins contain HFCS so I've already busted out of my experiment challenge. Which kind of sucks but I'm going to keep on anyway.

Lunch:
Caprese salad of homegrown tomatoes, avocado, mozzarella cheese, basil and some spices along with a dash of balsamic vinegar and olive oil.

Afternoon Snack:
Butter Snap Pretzels dipped in
Chipotle Hummus

Dinner:
BBQ chicken
Madras Lentils with
Tortilla chips
Cuba Libre - Rum and Diet Coke with two lime wedges.

The only failure here is that the BBQ sauce does contain HFCS. Though, in my defense, I started marinating the chicken breast like four days ago, well before this no HFCS experiment had become a reality. Still, I'm a little bummed that I have ingested HFCS twice today without wanting to.

Scary how pervasive the stuff really is.

Late Evening Snack:
Apple slices
Almond butter.

Exercise today: 10 mile mountain bike ride on the slough paths.
Weight: 181.5

Reflections: I'm annoyed that, despite my efforts, I ingested two food stuffs containing high fructose corn syrup. But an unforeseen benefit of this experiment is that I'm much more cognizant of what I'm eating and am pretty sure I ate less today than I did yesterday.
