“Nuttin’ But Salads” is a misnomer for week 10. Less than 30% of my meals were salads. I’m even three days late for this report, due April 17.
Problem is, I was on a 1,700-mile road trip and decided it would just be too inconvenient to keep up the salad habit. We were on the road for 10-12 hours for three consecutive days, driving from Hammond, Indiana, to back home.
For what it’s worth, my weight a couple days ago was 163.8 lb (74.5 kg) compared to 161.6 lb (73.4 kg) April 10. So not too bad a gain.
Did you hear about the E. coli disease outbreak linked to romaine lettuce? Thanks to Sam’s Club for warning my wife via email; they knew she had bought some questionable romaine there.

Love this journey!
I was going to suggest that you simply toss a bag of salad greens in a cooler on ice, bring some Chinet platters and plastic forks, and you could have had all the salads you want. McDonalds cheeseburger salad , ya know—
Your reminder about the e. coli w the chopped Romaine though made me think perhaps Divine Intervention played a role in your decision to abandon the greens for the Cheetos and Fritos!
Suggest you add dietdoctor.com to your worthwhile sites. My patients find it extremely useful. Great videos of real live people.
Yes, Lee. I need to add dietdoctor to blogroll. Excellent site!
