Menu 5/10 and Poll Results

Breakfast (LP/FC/NC)
1 Oh Yeah! Vanilla Creme Protein Shake
2 pieces of Double Fiber Toast with Splenda, cinnamon, and 0 calorie butter spray
Sugar Free Apple Cinammon Oatmeal

Lunch (BF/FC)
Syntha 6 Cookies and Cream Protein Bar
1 c of Green Beans

Cashew Pretzel Protein Bar

Supper (LP/FC/NC)
2-Tuna Patties
1 small potato fried in MCT Oil
2 c of breaded Okra (Breaded in Double Fiber Bread Crumbs) fried in MCT Oil

Poll Result:
First, I need to say that the combinations were incomplete. Each one was supposed to have a fibrous carbohydrate (FC).

Curiously, no one got the pole right! In general, Turkey Bacon is not a Lean Protein nor a Fatty Protein (there is one exception I know of: Jennie-O Extra Lean Turkey Bacon and it is in the Fatty protein category. It has about 25% calories from fat). Unless it is the Jennie-O brand, chances are that the Turkey Bacon is too fatty to be included in any combination.

The only bacon that works is Canadian Bacon. It is a fatty protein. However, you cannot combine a lean protein with a fatty protein. Thus Canadia Bacon with Egg Beaters is not a good combination.

Whole eggs are a fatty protein. As I understand it, you can combine a fatty protien with a fatty protein. Thus you can combine 1 slice of Canadian Bacon with 1 whole egg. Of course, you have to eat this with a fibrous carb such as Double Fiber Wheat Bread. So you can have bacon and eggs, just make sure it is Canadian Bacon.

I will make sure the next poll is complete.
