Guilt-Free Excess at Breakfast

Standard

BEFORE: Pastured pork sausage; garden greens wilted in lard; pastured egg, fried; green plantain, fried in coconut oil; beef bone broth

I was reminded this week that I can’t heal if I am not getting enough calories. I didn’t think that I had that issue, but I wanted to be sure, so I tracked my caloric intake using the free app Cron-o-meter for a few days and verified that I am eating more than I am expending.

One morning this week I got a little carried away at breakfast. In part because I was hungry and in part because there were some foods in the fridge needing attention.

After I ate, which took half an hour, I plugged my intake into Cron-o-meter. Almost 1,000 calories. Wow! And all guilt free!
