No HFCS - Monday Ingestion

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

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.

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

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.
