Squeezing in a post in-between tests!! The first one went OK. Not great. It was all these technical questions on bile, the liver, vitamins + minerals, metabolism, biochem – not the more general nutrition I was hoping for! But I still have learned so much since beginning my program about a year ago.
I studied for test #2, bought my books, and made it over to EarthFare for lunch. Luckily it’s not crowded at all – and of course luckily there’s wireless!
I took one whiff of this Thai Coconut Soup and knew I wanted it! It was pretty light – mostly veggies, rice and made with some coconut milk.
I also got a big salad to fill me up. It seems I can’t feel full after a meal without a big salad these days!
In the mix:
- Greens (tossed with white wine vinegar)
- Raw bell peppers
- Raw carrots
- 4 pieces of zucchini + squash
- Some peanut tofu (OMG it was so good!)
- A bit of fruit (2 grapes, strawberry, pineapple and a lone blueberry!)
- A mandarin orange
- Ginger carrot salad
- Roasted mushrooms + garlic (which I licked and put aside)
- The best salmon in the world
- A piece of grilled chicken
- Soy nuts
And I got a Diet Root Beer for fun 8)
It was a great lunch….but I’m craving some chocolate!! I might have to settle for a chocolate-covered creme de menthe Altoid (they are great if you haven’t tried them!)
