...someone else makes it! I feel like the salads I make just aren’t as tasty or exciting as other people or places make. Maybe I just haven’t found the right dressing? Including enough good stuff? But for some reason, if I try to make a salad for my lunch – it just doesn’t seem as appetizing as say…an Orchard Harvest half salad from Panera. I got one today and it was delicious. It had spinach and other greens, pecans, dried cherries, pears and gorgonzola crumbles. It came with a cherry balsamic dressing that I dipped my bites into as I ate. Barely used any of the dressing this way!
I also had half of this frontega chicken sandwich, which had smoked & pulled white meat chicken, mozzarella, tomatoes, red onions, chopped basil & chipotle mayonnaise, grilled on Focaccia. There was too much bread in the first few bites, so I took off the top half and made it an open-faced sandwich. I also hate mayonnaise, so I scrapped off as much as that as possible. Both of these things probably helped with the amount of calories!peach - need to get more of these!!I hate that I have had to go out to lunch two of the days this week already. I think it has to do with my lack of planning, so I am trying to change that tonight because I feel like I have a ton of groceries and good stuff in the fridge and just havent been planning meals and lunches. it really does make a difference, especially if I am rushing around in the morning - which is usually the case! I am sad to say that I let my kale and lettuce from the produce share go bad. I didnt use it in time and it got gross so that I couldnt use it. :(
Afternoon snack was chocolate covered edamame and some dry oatmeal squares. Didnt feel like having the yogurt that I brought today and I just didnt have much time this afternoon - lots of meetings.Tonight was a perfect night for running. Oscar, Kevin and I went for a run around the park and then down by the harbor. Probably did around 3.5 - 4 miles - it was relaxing and felt easy. Love that feeling!
Got home and made some TJ jalapeno chicken sausage, whole wheat couscous (i put some pine nuts in this and used chicken stock for cooking instead of water), and roasted cauliflower. Not that colorful of a meal, but it was very tasty. I love the crunchy brown sides of the cauliflower :)Dessert was a piece of whole wheat potato bread with RF peanut butter, raisins, and a drizzle of honey. I take BIG bites. :)
I also roasted up some spaghetti squash and plan to bring that for lunch tomorrow with some turkey meatballs. Cant wait!
