RAIN RAIN RAIN!
That four-letter word is all it takes to make everyone just a little bit crankier. It was cloudy, windy, and rainy on Wednesday. The weather definitely puts a damper on my mood, but at least it looks like the long weekend is going to be pretty nice! As long as there will be fireworks, I’m happy
I decided to go for something quick and cold for breakfast. I have some perfectly ripe bananas I want to use up, so I decided to slice one up on top of cereal.
I used 1/2 cup of TJ’s High Fiber O’s, 1 cup of Nature’s Path Puffs, 1 tbsp. of Nutz Over Raspberries and Chocolate trail mix, and 1 large sliced banana. Topped with 1/2 cup unsweetened chocolate almond milk. It’s nice to break up the oatmeal pattern – but somehow regular cereal just isn’t as filling.
I had every intention of packing my lunch – until I realized that Wednesdays are the days that the interns get free lunch! One can’t pass that up, right?
Today we got boxed lunches a la Corner Bakery. I chose the chicken pesto sandwich, which came with a fresh fruit salad, potato chips, and a cookie. Here’s a look at the inside of the box – it’s actually a great way to cater a business lunch because it’s a lot less messy!
I ate about 3/4 of the sandwich (I pulled the chicken out at the end because it wasn’t very good), all of the fruit salad, and about 1/4 of this guy:
Oatmeal raisin is my favorite type of cookie (hm, wonder why?) so I couldn’t help but sneak a few bites. This one was soft and chewy – nice work, Corner Bakery!
The rain got in the way of the plans my mom and I had for Wednesday night Instead, we did a bit of shopping (I suppose a nice substitute, right?) and settled on Noodles & Company for dinner – also not a bad substitute!
I love so many dishes at this place. Tonight I decided to get in some veggies and protein, so I went with the Med Salad. It’s their version of a Greek salad – romaine lettuce, kalamata olives, cavatappi noodles, and feta cheese with a yogurt dressing. I got the dressing on the side and fork-dipped it, and I added some shrimp on top.
This salad is deliciously light, yet filling.
I realize I’ve been eating out a lot this week – and it’s not going to change with the approaching holiday weekend. I suppose the theme for this week should be “how to eat healthy away from home.” Hopefully, I am acheiving this theme
One more day until the long weekend, everyone! Have a good one
