Now that’s more like it! Today’s lunch was virtually the same amount of calories as yesterday’s but I was SO much happier when I finished. First off, it took me like 3 times as long to eat it all, and it included a bigger variety of tastes 🙂
Salmon + Veggie Salad.
Talk about volume eating!
- 1 can salmon (Bumble Bee Pink)
- 1/8 head cabbage
- 1/2 a small zucchini, chopped
- 1 large carrot, chopped
- 1 large stalk celery, chopped
- 2.5 oz plain yogurt
- big squirt zesty honey mustard
- 1 tsp dried dill
- 1 tsp curry powder
- 1 tbsp capers
The capers made the whole dish!!! You MUST try them if you have not before. They have a strange taste – kind of like a vinegary olivey taste, but they add SO much flavor.
10 Kashi crackers
Fage. I LOVE LOVE LOVE Fage and wish it weren’t so expensive!
And a small piece of pumpkin bread! (Yes, I am in desperate need of a manicure – or just some good lotion!)
From above –
This lunch was about 500 kcal, 10 grams of fiber and 42 grams of protein.
Workout + Snack
I had a great energizing workout today. I went a little earlier than usual and enjoyed not being rushed at all by the clock. I did 40 minutes ET with Health Magazine (my favorite!), a 1.5 mile run on the TM while watching CMT and some good stretching.
On my way to class I snacked on a bit of trail mix –
My 12:30 class was CANCELLED!!! I drove all the way there and had lunch in a dark student union for nothing 🙁 Unfortunately I had no computer, no textbook and no calculator so I couldn’t work on anything I need to get done today. I killed an hour and a half in the computer lab pittering around. How wasteful!
Off to have a snack!
