I hope this Tuesday is treating you deliciously. My day has been delightful so far; just working hard for the money. Breakfast was the same as yesterday (yawn, I know).
So on to lunch! As you maybe could tell from reading a little of my blog (or hell, even my blog title) – I just love me a salad. I will put almost anything on a salad; and often eat a BIG salad daily for lunch or dinner (or both). Gena, Thinspired and Rhodey Girl have had alot to say about the power of a big salad lately and I couldn’t agree more. Since my Whole Foods adventures on Sunday yielded some delicious finds; I present today’s BIG salad.
- Vegetables: Spinach, Cabbage (Chinese & Red), Scallions, Red Pepper, Carrots, Cucumber
- Roasted Vegetables: Fennel, Mushrooms, Broccoli, Carrots
- 1 big slice of turkey, smeared with pesto
- 1/2 slice of fontina cheese
- 2 kalamata olives
- 1 baby artichoke heart
This salad was off the hook delicious. Sadly, I ended up picking out the turkey; it tasted a little funky to me. Anyway, since I skipped the protein, I was more than happy to supplement lunch with one of these:
OK, wow. I LOOOOVVVVE these. Those gals at Luna know what they’re doing. I’ve always been a fan of their products; although I find some of their regular bars to be a little sweet; but I think these have the perfect amount of sweetness.
A few weeks ago I tried the Chocolate Peanut Butter flavor. I thought it was scrumptious too. I usually shy away from “chocolate-flavored” things because I just don’t think they have that real chocolate flavor especially in bars, shakes etc – but this bar was really CHOCOLATEY. A really nice mix of both chocolate and peanut butter. Love.
There is still one flavor I have not yet tried; Chocolate Cherry Almond; but it could be in my near future 🙂
My office is closing early today for a company-wide talent show. Seriously. Should be an interesting recap tomorrow!
