Day 275: Innovate cake

Posted by Paola

We were at Innovate ’08 all day today, “the business of shaping our world“. Lunch and refreshments were provided. As seems to happen before these all-day things, I didn’t sleep well the night before and got up at 6am after waking up much earlier.

6:30am  Cereal

1 serving calories protein carbs fat fibre
semi-skimmed milk 66 4.6 6.8 2.3 0.0
bran flakes 124 3.6 23.5 0.8 4.9
malted wheats 135 4.0 27.8 0.8 3.6
Total 325 12 58 4 9

It still surprises me that a small bowl of cereal has the same calories as one of my cheese salad sandwiches.

10am  Danish pastry + coffee

What I innovate

11:30am  Biscuit + coffee

1:45pm  Potatoes with dressed salads + sparkling water

The vegetarian lunch option was tortellini. My carbs choice was potatoes or rice from the meat serving area. I remembered that potatoes had fewer calories. The shredded salad was lovely; lots of different things including mange tout.

3pm  Cake + coffee

The original plan was to have a piece of Frank’s but I decided to have a whole portion. And very nice it was too.

7:30pm  Cottage cheese salad + pint of fizzy squash

Actually, I was feeling nauseous at this time but I wanted to eat and so I did.

It’s only now seeing the photos that I see how many sweet treats I actually had. Hmm.
