- 2/3 pumpkin "Muffin in a Minute" (110 kcals, 8g protein, 1g net carbs) with 1 slice Hormel Natural honey deli ham (18 kcals, 2.5g protein, 1g net carbs) - ohhh man this was, as my mom would say, like a piece of heaven. It was filling, but not overly filling like the whole muffin I had yesterday. I just made two muffins and sliced each of them into thirds, and I griddled each slice in a little nonstick spray to make a light crust. I'll be having "ham biscuits" for the next couple of days! I added some pepper to the muffin, but I left in the sweet elements because I enjoy sweet combined with meat. It's reminiscent of the McDonald's McGriddle sandwich, which has maple syrup flavor in the bread, or of the classic combination of pancakes or French toast with sausage.

I struggled today with the eating demons. I should have had some sugarless gum with me, but I didn't and I needed my mouth to be preoccupied, so I ate the Calcet and the cantaloupe. Those weren't originally part of the food plan for today.
