The hunger monster struck before lunch time today so I reached in my lunch bag and grabbed this pear. I know I was hungry because this went way beyond the “apple test” – I like apples way more than pears. 😉
When you don’t have a pretty place mat, a pretty notepad will do.
Lunch was my un-chicken fried rice. It’s kind of like having an un-birthday. Just like when it’s your un-birthday it isn’t your birthday, in un-chicken fried rice, there is no chicken, no rice, and it isn’t fried.
Then what’s in it?
– 1/2 cup cooked quinoa (cooked in 1 cup veggie broth)
– roasted sliced carrot and 1/2 cup edamame
– 1 egg white, chopped
– couple of splashes of Bragg’s amino acids
So, why is it un-chicken fried rice? Because it incorporates all the things I love about chicken fried rice, except it definitely takes it up a few notches on the nutrition scale.
I added a small plate of honey dew that a coworker brought in. The universe was looking out for me since I ate my pear intended for lunch around 9:30 am.
Snack time was enjoyed (sans earrings) with cottage cheese and Kashi crackers. I love these earrings but they’re just too heavy for long-wear. They always end up on my desk by the end of the day.
The weather for tonight’s run isn’t looking so hot. 😦 Boo thunderstorms. They’re messing up my training.
