I feel like I should start doing the “Today’s Lunch” section again. If only so it keeps me honest about what I’m eating and steers me away from sad desk lunches.
So today: baby spinach salad with celery, tomatoes, avocado, tuna and EVOO with lemon, and a small slice of focaccia bread. Nice and fresh on a dreary Friday. I’m also really into Honest Teas right now — especially the Moroccan Mint Green Tea — which taste delicious and aren’t very sweet.
Today’s lunch: spinach, arugula and kale with 1/4 of an avocado, a bit leftover grilled pesto chicken and leftover sautéed peppers and zucchini. No dressing, just some salt and pepper.
Putting last night’s dinner to good use. That’s a glass of chia fresca on the side before the seeds were really saturated.
I feel like I’ve been a little too indulgent the past two weeks and need to change that. Back to grilled chicken and lots of veggies, cutting back on carbs. But don’t you dare try to take my Skinny Cow ice cream sandwiches or iced coffee away. That’s just cruel.
Today’s lunch: holy rainbow of fruit. The dean bought me this big container of fresh cut fruit at one of the food trucks outside the university. This is actually a small size, just $3.50.
I know it’s not a balanced meal, but it just tastes so gooooood. I ended up eating this throughout the afternoon and a kale salad too. Breakfast was another one of those tomato/vegetable Naked Juices, which I’m loving but noticing they’re very salty. Decided to purchase a blender today so I can start making smoothies and shakes on my own.
Today’s lunch: grilled chicken, tomato, basil and mozzarella sandwich, with iced tea from Cosi. Chose the lighter option and the whole grain bread. I’ve really been cutting carbs during the week, but after burning nearly 800 calories before 8 a.m. I figured why the hell not. Tomato juice for breakfast definitely didn’t cut it.
