Extra Dark

June 29, 2010

My second-to-last lunchbox to pack!!!

As this post publishes, I’m minutes away from giving my case study presentation. Despite being moderately outgoing, I REALLY don’t like public speaking!! I’m probably shaking in my boots Danskos! Not sure if I’ll get to eat this before or after (it’s a lunch presentation) or nibble my way through. Either way, it was a fun lunch!

This salad is a base of spinach, topped with frisee and dressed in Garlic Gold. Then topped with a small amount of Soy Boy tempeh, bell peppers, leftover brown rice, a blob of Sabra and some oregano and Crazy Salt. Delicccccious!

by the time you read this, you’ll probably be done, but good luck with the presentation! i’m sure you did great. i always get nervous public speaking too – you’d think an actor would be okay with it but i never am. put me in front of a camera with lines to memorize and i’m good though!

I would have totally pegged you for the person who was totally comfortable speaking in public, that’s comforting to know. I hate them too! But I’m slowly getting better at it…you’re always more nervous before than during though–that’s the good part ;)

I love adding brown rice to salad! Great way to bulk it up — lentils are a great choice, too!

Be calm! All will work out juuust fine and as it should! Maybe you should have some more chocolate.. ;-) Have a great day!

27 Sarah (Running to Slow Things Down) June 29, 2010 at 2:15 pm

Dark chocolate is my favorite way to end a meal. Especially when it’s extra, extra dark. I found a 90% bar a couple weeks back that is absolutely delicious. But I think 85% is still my favorite. :D

Hope the presentation went well! I’m not a fan of public speaking either, but usually after the first 5 minutes or so, it all kind of just comes together. :D

Dark chocolate (even a very small amount) really does have soothing powers. Dagoba makes a bag of organic, Fair-Trade-certified 73% dark chocolate oversized chips called “Chocodrops” that do the trick at any time of day.
