Bacon and Eggs are Good for You

Here is what FitDay has to offer regarding the nutritional profile of this morning's breakfast, which was: two fried eggs, three and a half crispy pieces of bacon, and one 6 oz. coffee with 1 oz. of half & half.

Check out the graph.  Breakfast was 70% fat (blue), 27% protein (yellow), 3% carbohydrate (purple). 

The details are below.  Not that I count calories or anything, but I was a little shocked to see that my big, bacon-ey breakfast was just over 300 calories.  Compare this to the carb-load in a Starbucks Apple Bran Muffin (350 calories, 9g fat, 64g carb, 6g protein) or their Cranberry Orange Scone (490 calories, 18g fat, 73g carb, 8g protein), and tell me what you think will get you to lunch without throwing you into a diabetic coma.  And don't get me started on their beverages... I shudder to remember the days when I wouldn't hesitate to suck down an Iced Peppermint White Chocolate Mocha.
