Rye Loaf from Bread & Cie

IMG_1657After eating 6 pounds of corn tortillas last week, I felt like eating a pound of bread yesterday. I picked up this rye loaf from Bread & Cie on University, near 5th. I ate 500g of it for dinner, with an avocado, tomato, some onion and butter. I also had some bean & vegetable soup, and all of it must have totaled near 2000 calories. It felt like the right amount of food, after a pretty serious bike ride that morning.

Foratini al Pomodoro

IMG_1605I was hungry for a big plate of pasta today, so I headed down to Assenti’s to pick up some fresh noodles and roma tomatoes. I made the sauce the traditional way (blanched the romas and removed the seedy part; puréed them, and fried it up in olive oil seasoned with garlic and fresh basil). I ate 200g of the pasta, which probably totaled around 500 calories. The thick, doughy noodles really hit the spot. If you don’t know by now, this is how I lose weight.
