I ate the best sandwich at lunch today. Usually lunch is packed and eaten at work but we decided to go out for lunch today so we went down the road to a gourmet food shop and did Build Your Own Gourmet Sandwiches. Oh yes.
I don’t have a picture of my actual sandwich but here’s the lowdown:
Roasted Turkey on a bun, grilled, with –
– Sauces: honey mustard and sundried tomato hummus
– Cheese: Pesto goat cheese
– Toppings: lettuce, tomato, onion, cucumber, roasted artichokes.
I haven’t had a fancy sandwich in probably two years now, no lie. I waited way too long for this. Amaaaazing.
———————-Brief Mild Seriousness Break.
A quick apology for coming off a bit overly negative in my last post. I’m not super happy with my habits lately and I’m suffering a wee bit of body distaste, which probably unnecessarily projected itself. I know I’m not an overly unhealthy eater but my ability to properly assess and adequately fuel my hunger has been waning this summer. I know it’s just a lame phase and I have trust enough in my ability to get back on track. I’m just not a fan of this newfound jiggle and it’s giving me an unnecessary guilt trip. Whine whine. I guess it’s time to throw some major Jillian Michaels booty kicking into the mix.
This week so far I’ve eaten some pretty good things.
Take kabocha, one of the greatest foods ever. Roast it up. Eat it at every meal. Done and done.
I also got experimental when I rediscovered half a tube of prepared polenta chilling out in my fridge. It needed something done with it and I remembered long ago reading about some polenta fries that intrigued me. So a 450 degree oven and approximately 20 minutes later I was graced with the most unique fry I’ve yet encountered. All I did was spritz them with oil and shake on some random seasonings. Oh so good. I’ve been snacking on these all week.
Before work I kaleified my morning – Green Monster!
This one included a nice bunch of kale and tasted very … earthy. I’ve done kale in smoothies a couple times before but this one was especially kalelicious. I didn’t mind though.
In the bullet: half a frozen banana, cantaloupe chunks, half a cup of unsweetened original almond breeze, flax, half scoop vanilla soy protein powder, handful of kale and ice.
Lunch was plain and simple but dinner was plenty more exciting.
A super satisfying salad: romaine lettuce, carrots, yellow zucchini, cucumbers, avocado, curly pasta, diced tomatoes, feta and sweet onion vinaigrette.
Along with a side of polenta fries, cracker with melted feta and the juiciest, tastiest corn on the cob.
You know what I had for lunch. If you don’t, go back to the beginning of the post and just try to imagine my wonderful sandwich.
Then check out my breakfast.
A mishmash of fresh fruit topped with a spoonful of yogurt, flax and Fiber One. The perfect starter for the not-so-hungry early morning tummy.
Okay so pretty much everything about today’s food was great.
Great morning fruit.
Great afternoon sandwich of sin.
Great Creamy Broccoli Feta Salad for dinner!
I stumbled upon the recipe and once realizing that all the ingredients were on hand, I couldn’t not make it.
My only quip with it was it was just a tad too lemony. But that’s only because I’m not the biggest fan of lemon flavour in my meals. I still enjoyed it quite a lot though. I ate a nice pile alongside a chicken burger with dijon mustard.
I polished it all off with more fresh fruit (and a dollop of almond butter), plus some unpictured dates and a mug of peppermint tea/hot chocolate mix.
Then I went for a walk with my ma for some chatter and aid in digesting my food baby, and now I’m about to watch some Planet Earth before quite probably going to bed insanely early tonight. Sleep catch up is much needed right now.
I can’t believe tomorrow is Thursday alright. This week is just a flying!
