Would you believe that this was my least expensive lunch here yet?!
A salad, with a raw veggie base plus about 1/4 cup chopped salmon (for health!) and about 2 tbsp pinto beans (for health!) and 3 tortilla chips.
Plus some sesame kale, which I bought from the deli because it was cheaper per ounce than the salad bar version (more superfood!)
Plus a yogurt (they were out of Fage) (I should have left this off – I was already full and it was expensive for the unit)
Plus 3 prune plums, which I didn’t eat because I was full and they were unwashed, but I got for free because their code was not in the computer!
Plus 3 store samples, which I put on a napkin to have for dessert. Blueberry pound cake, banana walnut bread and a Laura’s Junk Food cluster.
And water from home! (Boring, but green and free)
That was probably a bit more than I needed, but the grand total was still only $7.82. Not bad for lunch on the go on a busy day if you think about how much restaurants charge (and the dining hall is $6.50 per visit). If I’d left off the yogurt, it would have been perfect. But I am perfectly satisfied and full!
I’ve been sitting outside and am kind of hot and have a nice 15 minute walk back to my classroom. See ya later gators.
