Salmon + Avocado on a Wheat Bagel
We’re out of almost all sandwich toppings except for PB + J and tuna and I wasn’t in the mood for either, so I thawed a salmon patty to have on a bagel. We buy these at Trader Joe’s in frozen packs of 5. They have 80 kcal, 1 gram of fat and 17 grams of protein – and are quite delicious! There is some added salt and water, but otherwise they’re just salmon. I had a little honey mustard on this too, but it’s REALLY good with blue cheese!
WARNING – be careful when you try to separate the frozen patties or you might end up in the emergency room like I did back in October. (Don’t click if you’re not a blood and guts type!)
Also had apple and celery with a tad bit of PB on each piece – just enough to get the delicious flavor!
And lastly, pumpkin yogurt. I made this by combining 1/2 a cup of plain low-fat yogurt with 1/2 a cup of Libby’s 100% Canned Pure Pumpkin with a little pumpkin pie spice. It does taste better with a little splenda or maple syrup too, but I left that out today. I think canned pumpkin is an acquired tasted, but I have grown to LOVE it. This bowl was SUPER filling too. That’s a little Trader Joe’s High Fiber sticks on top for crunch. (And the other bowl I got at Kohl’s for $1 I think!?)
All together – ( I can finally drink water again!)
This lunch was about 500 kcal – and it was very filling!
Our trip to the gym this morning was great – I think because it’s finally warm outside I am warmer (and happier) at the gym! I did the Stairmaster, ET and some upper body lifting and stretching.
I did some studying (although only half of what I wanted to get done) and we’re going out on a walk to the shopping center for some groceries for dinner and to rent a movie. Then we’re going to a wine tasting, then making homemade pizza with my mother in law.
See you for dinner!
