Packed up and ate in my nook before class – kept things simpler today to avoid drawing too much attention to myself
Salmon Salad with carrots, celery, pickle, jarred jalapeño, jalapeño mustard, zesty mustard, S + P and hot sauce. I left out the mayo this time and didn’t even realize it until I was done. Guess if you like mustard it’s really not that necessary. I ate my tuna in pitas instead of on a plate –
Also had a cottage cheese –
And pomelo. I found this in the grocery store last week and thought I’d give it a try. It was SO GOOD! Kind of like a cross between a grapefruit and a lime. Sort of like a margarita if you ask me….
Got (almost) all my food groups in again:
Protein: Salmon, cottage cheese
Grains: Whole wheat pita
Veggies: carrot, celery, jalapeños
Fat: Low-fat CC. I could have used a few nuts or avocado for some monounsaturated fats!
All together for ~ 469 kcal.
Not as high as usual, but heavy on the protein. I got a little hungry earlier than usual around 3:30, but I suppose that’s because I got out of class and it felt later since I didn’t have lab. I had a LaraBar on the ride home. Yum for chocolate (and MUFA from the nuts)!
Tonight I’m on my own – the husband is away at his class (Financial Accounting – perhaps the first step of a night MBA but not sure yet) . Shhhhhhhhhh, don’t tell him, but I kind of like being home alone some nights 😉 It’s just kind of fun to turn on “Carolinas Jazzzzz 88.9” and make dinner solo. I already did a bunch of chores (folded laundry, cleaned bathroom) and now I’m getting started on some work. It would be the perfect time for a glass of wine, but I had 3 glasses this week and have a big weekend coming up so I think I’ll stick to a virgin tonic when it’s time to start my …..recipe is a surprise!
