I was so excited about this lunch but it was too much for me to handle!! I saved my grapefruit for later because about halfway through lunch I knew I wouldn’t be able to eat it all and that seemed like the most “saveable” item.
When I was young, raw broccoli dipped in ranch was one of the few veggies I would eat, but I have never liked it plain. (Cooked is fine plain though!) I stole some from last night’s dinner to put in my salad today but I could barely stomach it. Even in the same bite with the delicious pom seeds I was on the verge of gagging. I should have just gone and microwaved them or found a dipping sauce but instead I just tried to picture the vegetable’s benefits and swallowed it down. Won’t be packing this again for a while unless I have a thick dressing!
Spinach, pom and broccoli salad with raspberry blush vinegar as dressing
Tuna salad made with 1 oz plain yogurt, mustard, red curry powder, carrots and celery:
Pumpkin yogurt with pumpkin pie spice (1/2 cup yogurt mixed with 1/2 cup canned pumpkin)
And grapefruit, which I saved for later.
Hot green tea to drink
