Can you believe it’s another WIAW? Just 1 and 1/2 months to being half way thru another year. Today my eats are from Tuesday, and WOW what a Tuesday it was, somebody pushed the fast forward button and forgot to push play. Lately my days have been 10 to 12 hours long and that makes my nights seem short. Monday it felt shorter after being up late reading and watching the sad news about the Boston Marathon. I was unaware of what had happened because in my work once I’m inside it’s a child’s world, (I work with children). I was told the news by a parent who came to pick-up her child, she said when she heard the news she thought of me because she knows I run marathons. My heart and prayers go out to all affected by this terrible tragedy.
It was full speed and straight ahead from the moment my feet hit the floor Tuesday, I was a little rushed so I threw some food in my lunch tote and headed out the door to work. It all turned out fabulous! I think the key to eating healthy is having healthy food choices available. I keep a bowl of fruit on my desk, and I have a small fridge in my office to keep water and other healthy snacks on hand. So when I’m rushed and haven’t planned as well, I still have healthy eats available.
After getting settled at work my breakfast was whole wheat toast with sunflower butter, sliced bananas, chia seeds and a cup of coffee. I keep a supply of chia seeds in my office fridge.I like adding them in cereal and on salads.
Lunch was a thrown together kale salad. I pulled the kale from the stems, sliced cherry tomatoes, red onions, smashed avocado into salad and sprinkles on some nutritional yeast, another item in my office fridge and I threw in some dried cranberries just because. This salad was better than good. You got to try it!
I wasn’t very hungry so dinner was zucchini, daikon, carrot salad with citrus ginger dressing I prepared by mixing the juice from one navel orange and about 1 tablespoon of Whole Foods organic soy ginger sauce. I used my handy dandy spiralizer to chop the daikon and zucchini.
