All aboard!

Today was embarkment day. From experience I know the day can be quite long before we get dinner on the boat så I hade a little to much breakfast. I had 1,5 of this plate…

20150524-0090-

The embracing went really good and from we left the busses I think in only took about 20-30 minutes until I had the first double espresso in the café on the promenade. Really smooth process!

I had been thinking quite a lot about what to do with the unlimited internet and the unlimited coffee/Coke Zero. The internet was a bit cheaper than what we were told “only” 140 USD for the full week. So I took the beverages packages too for 19 USD per day. I hade to drink 7,6 double espressos per day to break even. I can get bottled water and Coke Zero also. I will try to keep track of the drinking and post here. Today I had 5 double espressos and 3 coke zero refills. I also had a bottle of water. So I think I actually managed to break even… :-)

After the first espresso I walked around a bit and took some pictures.

I had no lunch and in the evening we went to the dinner rooms. On these cruises we are seated and it is always a bit exciting to see whom you end up with. I was very pleased with all the people “I got”. This will be a good week.

I had two starters today. Escargots and a nice coconut soup with muscles and scallops.

20150524-0090--26

For main I had a pork chop with a little to sweet sauce and some veggies. I went here to eat what I always eat. Pork chop and broccoli… :-) I added a lot of butter too…

20150524-0090--27

For dessert I took the cheese plate.

20150524-0090--28

When I was finished this was left on the plate… Yes I had the strawberry.

20150524-0090--29

After the dinner we went to explore the bars and I had a glass of wine at the first and kept to coke zero at the rest stops.

20150524-0090--31

The intake today was pretty high and that is the brakfast tant was a little too heavy.

Pre cruise dinner and meeting

Today all of the DietDoctor team met up for breakfast at the hotel. It was a really nice buffet and I had a pretty standard plate for me. Eggs, bacon, butter, cheese etc.

20150523-0088-

We had a meeting all day planning a lot of things that we need to do on the cruise as well as in general. Mid day we went for lunch and I had a nice Caesar salad with shrimps.

20150523-0088--5

Finally in Florida

We got up pretty early this morning to have some brakfast. I know from experience that the food on the plane is not really LCHF and I was right today too. The brakfast was just a normal Swedish breakfast, egg, bacon, cheese etc.

And once on the aircraft it broke down. They did not manage to “arm” love of the emergency exits so a technician had to solve the problem before we could take of 1,5 hours late.

The food on the plane was a chicken curry with rice. So chicken it was… Some salad and a little butter. So not much eatable.

20150522-0087--3-2

For a snack before landing we got a sandwich and I had the cheese and ham only…

20150522-0087--5

That was about all food IO had today so the intake was

Long day at the airport

Our flight to Florida was canceled so we stood in the line at the airport 5 hours before we got to the ticket counter and got our flight re-booked.

20150521-0086--6

I managed to get interviewed by TV4. I managed to get some said about the cruise we are going to. We had joked about how many times you could mention the “diet docs” Swedish blog adress if we were to be interview. I kept it to only once… :-)

20150521-0086--19

We got water, coffee and fruits while we were waiting.

20150521-0086--18 20150521-0086--23

When we finally got our new tickets we got the same flights but 24 ours later. We got booked into a hotel at the airport and got free dinner.

During the afternoon we had a caesar salad for lunch

20150521-0086--25

And the the free dinner quite late.

Flight canceled

Our flight to Florida is canceled due to the strike amongst pilots in Sweden. The airline told us to get to the airport anyway and they will make sure we get to our destination. They just don’t know when…

Me and Simon met up here in my town and we went asian for dinner.

A bit high on carbs and low on fat so I guess I will be quite hungry tomorrow morning

I have struggled with the packing. I have to work full day tomorrow and Simon, whom I will be traveling with will stay over the night for us to take a really early train to the airport in Stockholm. So I feel I have to be as “packed” as possible.

For the barbecue

For the second recipe I made a variation of my broccoli salad. Mayo, broccoli, onion and garlic. Nice side for the summer barbecues.

I walken “my” 10K today and at a really slow pace. Not sure why but I felt it all the way. Maybe it was the slow blues in the playlist made of the new best of Eric Clapton…

New take on a classic.

Once again I have to prepare recipes for the magazine. A bit early this time since I am going away on the Low Carb Cruise later this week. So today I tried the first out of three recipes and it was really nice.

15 0517-TommyTappar -20150517-00039IMG_2524

Not sure how many of you who are reading the magazine but since it is in Swedish I guess not that many… :-) So I can let you know what it is this time. I have had caesar salad a lot of times but I rarely make it my own. Now I have made a nice fat dressing that I use. It is a full mayo dressing with just added sardines, garlic and parmesan cheese. To get the fat “up” I off course have a lot of it.

The intakes today was with some “extras”

An intensive weekend

I forgot to take pictures today too. It is a bit hectic organizing our game and the break we get tends to be somewhat shot. The only diff from today was I added a really small amount of tomato and salad to the burger and sauce bearnaise.

Now the gaming convention is over and tomorrow I have to re-load my “batteries” and do the things for the magazine and plan the Low Carb Cruise. It was a really nice gaming convention and our event was “entertaining” 75  participants over the three days. We run 5 sessions. Tow each day and it was really intense. Our brains was really tired in the evenings.

I did not make any eggs when I got home but I did have s little extra sauce so the intake was

For dinner at the gaming convention I had two burgers with sauce bearnaise. I did not take any pictures but since it was exactly the same as yessterday I will use yesterday’s picture… :-)
