For breakfast this morning I had a Thomas’ Bagel Thin with Apricot Mango Preserves. It was pretty good, a nice little change from the usual Special K cereal I have in the mornings. It filled me up for a while.
For lunch today I made a salad with some of the things I got last night..Crasins and Walnuts! sooo good! I love this combination. The salad was delicious–spinach, sliced red peppers, baby carrots, crasins, walnuts with raspberry vinagarette dressing. However, I think I might need more protein in my salads to keep me full throughout the day–I bought some chickpeas and kidney beans for that. I was just lazy this morning and didn’t feel like opening the cans!
I finally remembered my protein wings last night at the grocery store! (I just wish they weren’t so expensive). Honey BBQ is SOO good. I didn’t really know what to put with them so I just put them in a Joseph’s Flax & Whole Wheat Pita. It was pretty tasty. Four wings are only 120 calories, so even if I wanted the whole box for 240 calories–that would still be a decent dinner! I love these things. I got the chick’n strips too, and can’t wait to try them in a salad.
I also stocked up on fruit — strawberries, necatrines, grapes, and apples. Yum.
Here is the “recipe” for my salad:
About 2 big handfuls of fresh washed spinach
2 Tbs of crasins
2 Tbs of crushed walnuts
1 Tbs of reduced fat feta cheese
Sliced red peper
A handful of baby carrots
2 Tbs of fat free raspberry vinagarette
