Today has been a good day. I ate well but didn't exercise. I went grocery shopping afterwork and had pre-made a list to use. It worked pretty well and I mostly stuck to it. I did buy a box of Skinny Cow ice cream bars. Tonight I ate two but at least I didn't eat three. :) My dinner was low in calories so I figure it is okay that my desert was a little on the high side.
I was trying to get to bed early when I realized I only had 10 minutes left on my load of laundry in the washer. That wasn't much longer so I thought I would make good use of my time. I prepped food for work the rest of the week.
I love carrots and cucumbers but have never been a big fan of tomatoes on their own. I thought I would give them a try anyways. I divided them up into containers that will be easy to take with me to work each day.
I am the pickiest salad eater. I hate heads of lettuce and bags of salad that are full of yellow lettuce. Yellow lettuce just does not seem appetizing to me. Several years back I had switched to fresh spinach. It is slightly more expensive but more expensive then something I won't eat seems reasonable to me. When I did lots of research on being vegan I found out that spinach on its own is not good, it can actually hinder the absorption of iron in your body. This can be counteracted by having fresh citrus added to your salad but I don't really go for citrus salad's. So I tend to mix it with another type of lettuce to make my salad more well rounded. I picked up a light caesar salad kit and a tub of spinach. I mixed them together. I split the salad into three containers (including the one it came in.) I put the croutons and salad dressing in individual containers to take with me and portion out when I eat each salad.
Now I have lunch's for the rest of the week all ready to go. I also cut up some fresh strawberries and had bought some small cans of V8 juice. Doing all this probably took about 30 minutes but having it already cleaned, cut, and prepared makes it totally worth it.
