Been in the office most of the morning. Amy and I went to a school to discuss a new diet order for a student who has a metabolic disorder this morning. He’s on a very low protein diet and the cafeteria has a special tray that they make for him.
I got pretty hungry around 10 and knew I didn’t want to eat lunch yet! So I sipped tea 🙂 Did the trick.
I was invited into a vendor meeting to test out some samples around 11:15. It was fun to hear all the specs on the products. We tried a “whole grain” (51% whole wheat) flatbread called Loco Bread that was actually pretty cool. Most of the bread + pasta products in our schools are 100% whole grain, but there are some (tortillas) that are not, and I think this product would make a great compromise (no trans-fats either!) It tasted great too!
We also taste-tested some pizza – also made with 51% whole grain crust – that was pretty darn good. It’s unrealistic to think of removing all pizza from the schools, but if we could put one on made with whole grains it would certainly improve the nutrition.
I tasted just a bite of both products because I was holding out for…
Leftovers from our event yesterday – root veggies, half a sweet potato, salad with homemade ranch, pasta salad and fruit. With more hot tea.
[I found this awesome photo app on my iPhone called “Best Camera” that allows you to edit and brighten photos. Don’t you think they look a little more vibrant?! However, I did NOT take this photo horizontally but somehow it showed up in my album that way. GUF. Anyone know of a way to rotate photos either on the phone or in WordPress online? I also found a way to upload my post as a draft and then write in-between the photos for a better on-the-go post. ]
Speaking of on-the-go…
