Its lunchtime here on the East US coast...

What did you have for lunch today? or... what are planning on having?

I had pork bulgolgi (spicy, thinly sliced, korean fried pork -- leftovers from dinner with the boy's grandparents) and mixed rice with green peas. mmmm yum.

I have baked chicken tenderloins, mashed potatoes and a mix of peas and carrots.

I forgot to bring dessert, though. [ohwell]

I was running late today, and forgot to bring leftovers from dinner last night. Bah humbug. I think I'll just have coffee & something today, but I was starting to look forward to some pretty tasty chicken...guess I'll make dinner out of that.

Still have not eaten lunch. I work 2nd shift, I eat lunch at 6 pm (breakfast at 11:30 am). And dinner is more of a snack at midnight.

I had a homemade fruit smoothie and a bagel with cream cheese. Yes, it was wretched to eat the cream cheese and my butt will be paying for it for-ev-ah, but it was nummie.

the low-fat/fat-free philly cream cheese really isn't that bad! [Smile]

It's not that great, either. Also, last time I checked, it had more chemicals in it than Keith Richards. Plus, they don't promise not to use rBST milk.

But yeah, Neufchatel isn't too bad, and if I'm gonna burn the calories, it might as well be the real thing. :-)

every thing you eat, when organic or not, is completly 100%, made of chemicals.

Except souls. Tasty, tasty souls.

They're fat-free too.

Souls aren't sometimes chemically-enhanced?
 
Posted by Steen (Member # 170) on June 26, 2007, 06:08:
 
No, but delusions often are.

Yes, but they always leave you feeling empty. Souls are much more filling.

Good point. So where can I find some souls?
 
Posted by Steen (Member # 170) on June 26, 2007, 06:37:
 
You might try this place. They'll even give you a quote on how much your soul is worth.

*edit*
(or they would, if the site wasn't broken)

You have me there, but I would prefer to avoid eating things like Sodium Tripolyphosphate. However, yes, I recognize most of those. How about this: I'd prefer to eat things I recognize as edible raw components. For example: citric acid instead of sodium benzoate. I know where citric acid comes from and it's usable as food. Sodium benzoate is an unstable salt which breaks down into a poison.

Plus, I am a staunch believer that taste has a stable metric: the Calorie.

Don't you mean the kilojoule? I had to mention that since you used the word metric. At least don't call it a calorie, it is a kilocalorie.

Calorie with at capital C is the kilocalorie .

Earth to Ashitaka: the unit of energy used by biochemists the world over is calorie. I don't know why we do it this way, but that's the way it is. Maybe because biochemical reactions are, by their nature, aqueous, and so it makes sense to just standardize everything against the amount of energy it takes to heat one gram of water one degree Celsius (oh look, it's metric units!). Because humans use so much energy, the amount of energy produced by a serving of food is best expressed as kilocalories, but since no one likes to read their food packages and realize that they're consuming hundreds of thousands of calories (no shame in that, your basal metabolic rate is about 1.3 MILLION calories), the nutritionists (aka biochemists who obsess about food) introduced the dietary calorie, which is the Calorie. One Calorie is, as WS pointed out, one kcal.

metric, noun, defined as:

A system of related measures that facilitates the quantification of some particular characteristic [syn: system of measurement].

That is what I said and what I meant.

However, the kilojoule and the calorie are both considered to be synonymous in the realm of food energy calculation. It's just that the United States decided not to change a perfectly good metric . . . erm, sorry . . . SYSTEM OF MEASUREMENT:

"Kilojoules and calories measure the energy value of food. The amount of energy depends on the amount of carbohydrates, proteins and fat the food contains.

Fats and alcohol are the most energy-dense foods. Australia now uses kilojoules, but calories are still used as a measurement in the US. One calorie is equivalent to 4.186 kilojoules (rounded off to 4.2 kilojoules)."

I seem to unintentionally dig myself into holes in this here forum alot.

I had no idea capitol C was a kcal. Thanks for the info. I was just mentioning that, as stated before, I really don't like how the US measures things, it is ok if you do, I don't, and I like to mention that. If I mention that too often and is anoys you, well thats life, sorry.

Speaking af measuring energy, even here electricity, natural gas, and food mesurements of energy all have different units. Energy is energy. I wish people would pick one unit and stick with it.

Sorry for stepping on all your toes, I am a bad dancer.
