There's something badass about riding 80 miles with a rivulet of blood running down the front of your leg. Cleaned up, this actually doesn't look so bad. It didn't hurt either. In fact, the only bad thing about the crash was losing contact with the other guys I had been riding with!
Since the "dietary overhaul" I embarked upon last month, my breakfasts have been completely revolutionized. No starches and no dairy means none of my usual staples: pancakes, toast, oatmeal, cold cereal. I was forced to discover (yes, discover) eggs and most fruits. Yeah, you heard right: I never really ate eggs or strawberries or grapes or any of that stuff before this diet began. I know, I know - I was missing out.
Side note: I had also been lamenting a severe dietary lack of "things to put ketchup on." We just don't have burgers or french fries all that often around here and now fries are totally out of the equation. Fortunately, scrambled eggs nicely fill that vacancy and have become my primary vehicle for lycopene intake.
Update: I'm now being told my some that, "Ketchup on eggs is gross," and it's become quite the little mini-debate on Buzz. I didn't realize this was such a contentious issue!
