Here I am just blogging in the EarthFare cafe and two readers come up and introduce themselves!!! How cool! They are nutrition students too, and we made plans to have lunch here next Thursday 🙂
I knocked off some studying this morning – whew. The first round is always the hardest, after that it just gets easier and easier to go over the material. I think I’m good with functional groups, orbitals, hybridization, naming alkanes and alkenes…..you get the point!
Lunch was awesome. We’ve got a beautiful fall day and I wanted to celebrate with a cup of soup. I wanted the Shrimp + Corn I had last time, but I decided on the Black Bean + Chorizo instead.
I asked if they had any whole grain rolls, but they didn’t, so I had some stone ground Akmak crackers instead –
And of course I had to have a salad for some veggie bulk. I promise someday I’m getting a sandwich! I kept it lighter on the protein and salad toppings today because of my soup.
- Sesame kale
- A piece each of broccoli, red cabbage, orange pepper, carrots, cooked parsnip and eggplant
- 4 little crackers
- A handful of roasted sweet potatoes
- A sprinkle of blue cheese
- A sprinkle of soy nuts
- 2 pineapple chunks
- (I had dressing on the side but didn’t need it.)
And a Junk Food sample for dessert! Oatmeal raisin.
Plus my own H2O bottle to save money + waste (I turned down a bunch of cool drinks.
I’m off to Foodservice, then workout, then making a fun dinner, then more studying! Can’t WAIT for some relaxation this weekend. I’m planning to do a little back-to-school clothes shopping, since my mom sent me a little money!! Thanks mom!
