I realized I haven't had one of my very favorite lunches in a long time - so that's what's for lunch today.
I dressed mine up a little with carrot flowers and I brushed each flower with honey so the black sesame seeds would stick ( it tastes really good too!). The rest of the salad is made from mixed salad greens, sugar snap peas, sliced almonds, cucumber slices, mandarin oranges, leftover turkey (from dinner yesterday) and my homemade Sesame Ginger salad dressing. Now I can't wait for lunch!
The rest of my meals today are as follows:
breakfast - 1 cup of homemade gluten free granola with 1/2 cup almond milk
snack - celery with protein peanut butter and 1 tbsp. raisins
lunch - the bento above, along with some lite lemonade
snack - a slice of cheesecake (from Clean Eating magazine) and an apple
dinner - TBD ... I actually haven't done my weekly food prep yet! I am woefully unprepared : ( My week does go so much better when I have food prepped and planned for the week - but it will have to wait until Tuesday this time around.
For exercise, I did yoga, followed by a 40 minute run. I wish I could say that I ran for 40 minutes straight, but I took my dog, Molly, and she had to stop and check every sniffing point in the neighborhood! So I ran as much as I could, but was jerked to a stop by Molly about 10 times : )
BTW, today is my 90th post! Ah, time has flown by since my first post last November. Hmmm, maybe I should plan something fun for my 100th post... : )
Here are some things I used to make my lunch, and where to buy them:
