Today’s lunch salad was made with:
- spring mix
- red apple
- pumpkin seeds
- black olives
- hard boiled egg white
- fat free blue cheese dressing
There are some days when a bucket of salad is just what I need to hit the spot and keep me on track. I love adding whatever fruits and veggies I have in my fridge, the wackier the better. Today was a pretty basic salad bucket, no special cheese or veggies, you’ll see how excited I get when I’ve got feta, kalamata olives, and roasted red peppers!
After my salad I took a 30 minute walk around my company parking lot. The sun was shining, the grass was green, and the weather was in the 70’s, what else could you ask for?
What are you having for lunch?
For breakfast today I packed my new spin on an egg and cheese: whole wheat wrap with two thin slices of cheddar and one hard boiled egg white. I am a huge fan of friend egg sandwiches with American cheese on a hard roll, but I am cutting down on calories and on processed flours. I honestly didn’t think this wrap was going to be as satisfying as it was, but it was great. I also had a decaf coffee with half and half on the side.
I also packed apple slices, orange slices, one ounce of fat free cheddar and some Triscuits. I love to snack during my work day and if I don’t have something healthy, I’m hitting up the vending machine and that is just asking for trouble.
I’m pretty excited about this healthy start and I’m hoping this will all keep me satisfied throughout the day! Also I am hoping to walk for 30 minutes today during lunch and to do my hourly stretches. I’ll let you know how it goes!
