My eating highlight of the day was trying blueberry milk chocolate. It was a milk chocolate bar with a smooth milk filling topped with blueberry sauce. Absolutely amazing, a nice combination. I should have posted a photo of the chocolate instead of what you see above. Rice and lentils was very delicious, pity it failed in the looks department.

Steve Jobs biography has some interesting and bizarre information on his eating habits. Jobs was affected by the book “Diet for a Small Planet” which is why he became vegetarian and which led him to embrace extreme diets. This included purges, fasts, or eating only one or two food, such as carrots or apples, for weeks on end.
In 1977 he ate fruits only and was adamant that he bathed once a week, and that was adequate as long he was eating a fruitarian diet. During his early years at Apple he once spit out a mouthful of soup after learning that it contained butter.
He would spend weeks eating the same thing—carrot salad with lemon, or just apples—and then suddenly spurn that food and declare that he had stopped eating it.
He has a sensitive palate. He could taste two avocados that most of us would find indistinguishable, and declare that one was the best avocado ever grown and the other inedible. I guess if someone is eating such a limited variety of food, small differences become more noticeable.
After his liver transplant he would have only fruit smoothies, and demand that seven or eight of them be lined up so he could find an option that might satisfy him.
Towards the end of his life, he wanted to fast when he needed to eat because when he was young, he learned that he could induce euphoria and ecstasy by fasting. Even though his doctors were begging him to consume high-quality proteins, he went on fasts.
