After more afternoon studying , I headed to the gym for a workout with my text book . I did about 45 minutes on the ET followed by another speedy jock shower in the locker room. My heavy-protein lunch was still sitting like a rock in my stomach but I could feel hunger forming around it, and I knew I had to eat at 5:30 or I’d be starving by 9:00 so I dug in. I think I was hungrier than I thought, though, because it hit the spot.
On the menu: Chicken Salad in Cabbage Cups. I’m not a huge fan of chicken salad in general (too much mayo!), but made with apple and celery it seemed appealing. And of course I used yogurt as the binder:
- 1/2 a grilled chicken breast, cubed (leftovers from the weekend)
- 1 large apple, diced
- 1 stalk celery, diced
- 1/3 cup-ish blackberries
- 2 tbsp chopped walnuts
- Dressing: About 1/4 cup Fage, 2 tsp dijon mustard, sprinkle majarom, sprinkle celery salt, pepper.
Toss all to combine.
I steamed four cabbage leaves and made little cups to eat it with:
I also packed a Baked Oatmeal Snack Bar pulled from the freezer. I ate it at about 8:30 during class. Yum!
When I got home I was still feeling a little hungry (no grains at dinner?) and had a tiny bit of mint chocolate chip . Ice cream always gives me that "coat the stomach" fullness.
No class tomorrow!! Whoo hooo!! I do have to study for Sports Nutr. all day, write another paper and take my chem lab exam uptown in the afternoon, but then I get to enjoy dinner with the husband!!
