Today I broke out of my pattern! I had a Dark Chocolate Dreams Peanut Butter and Strawberry jam sandwich for breakfast. I did need a pre-gym snack of a small bowl of Kashi Heart to Heart cerial with soy milk. It kept me going but as I was changing and heading back to my desk my tummy was grumbling loudly.
Lunch is a bowl of leftover Bacon Spaghetti, carrots, celery and green beans in hummus. After yesterday's debacle I decided to skip getting anything from the cafeteria. I did splurge and eat 3 Oreos.
At 5pm I nibbled on some pretzel chips and had a sprite as my tummy was very unhappy. I think all the crudities were a bit much. Ok fine, it was the cookies! Happy?
Dinner was an awesome salad of Quinoa, raw corn kernels, pimento, avocado and tomato in a lime and chili dressing. I did top it with a baked chickpea cutlet strip, just because cutlets are that awesome.
The cutlets in all their glory!
The salad in its zippy goodness:
I mixed lime juice, crushed red pepper, chili powder, olive oil, salt and a bit of pepper for the dressing. It was tangy with that citrus bite but a slow heat in your mouth afterwards. The quinoa was lovely but still hot so it made the avocados disappear unfortunately. But it all tasted divine. The crisp romaine was a lovely crunch with the softer salad and chewy cutlet bites.
I am going to make this again. Possibly with shelled edamame and cold quinoa.
