I love it when my lunches naturally take a while to eat (meaning I don’t have to consciously put down my fork). I think I always end up more satisfied by physically and emotionally (which makes sense of course). So for some reason this lunch took me a while to work through (and it helps that I wasn’t in a rush to get somewhere!) so I really enjoyed it!
Pork tenderloin + half a slice of muenster cheese on a homemade potato bun with jalapenos and spinach leaves. Jalapeno really adds a lot to a sandwich. I’ve read before that meals with spicy foods leave you more satisfied than those without. Perhaps this secret ingredient was the key to my lunch happiness!?
The inside. I actually really enjoyed the big spinach leaves to my normal baby spinach. It was more like lettuce and didn’t pull out as easily.
Pommelo - I LOVE this fruit. Look for it in your grocery store (or just ask someone in the fruit dept.) It’s like a cross between grapefruit, lime and lemon. Kinda like a margarita! They look just like grapefruit and are very lightweight because the peel is like an inch thick. But SO tasty!
Fage with a bit of sliced almonds – but I forgot an individual photo of this so here’s one from last week!!
Plus hot green tea from the union!
All together –
This lunch was about 500 kcal, 6 grams of fiber and 35 grams protein.
I’m off to take a Physio lab quiz and do today’s lab. I’m making a fun soup for dinner – I’m excited!
I hope the sun is shining wherever you are 8)
