Lack of updates

Is what happens when you no longer have a computer or access of your own.  Have patience with me folks as I work connection issues out.

Your lunch menu (since I started with breakfast and never finished from there lol).

Choose one Daily.  I make mine at home and carry it with me. It takes a lot of discipline to manage your daily diet.  Lunch and supper is one of those tough areas especially when you work

-Tuna salad on Baby spinach.

There are literally thousands of ways to make tuna salad.  I substitute spicy mustard for mayonnaise, completely drain the tuna bone dry and add chopped celery, quartered cherry tomatoes, sliced black olives, chopped sweet pepper(red, green, yellow,orange...)the more colorful the more likely you are to eat it), chopped hardboiled eggs.  Mix and plop a huge spoonful onto baby lettuces or spinach that is piled high in your bowl.  Place a few pretzels of your choice and sliced raw almonds in a baggie and there you have a filling lunch.  If you absolutely must have bread, take a toufoyan everything bagel (100 calories) with you too.

-Tabouleh
Prepared according to directions.  Add chopped apples,  raw walnuts, pecans, almonds, chopped celery, and golden raisens.  Fill your lunch bowl halfway with baby lettuces or spinach and the rest of the way with tabouleh.  Carrot sticks, orange slices, and a handful of golden raisens in a baggie to top off lunch.

-Set aside some of your supper to take for lunch, add a side salad to it.

I don't recommend those protein bars or shakes as a lunch substitute unless it's a short day at work.  I work retail so some days I'm only there 4-6hours and get 1 fifteen minute break so that wold be the day I have a protein bar or shake.  If you're at work more than 6 hours you need something that isn't going to leave you ravenous by the time you leave work.

If you forget your lunch or the girls/guys go out for lunch, I highly reccommend purchasing a book called Eat This Not That (preemptively of course!).  If all else fails: if it says creamy, fried,crispy, crunchy, sweet, gooey, rich, decadent runRunRUN AWAY from it NOW!

Supper ideas later this week.

Have a happy healthy Wednesday.
