Well my half day turned into almost a full day! Good thing I packed a lunch 🙂
I brought a wrap, soup, yogurt, blueberries, and an orange. The wrap was a whole wheat tortilla with roasted red pepper hummus, turkey, and feta cheese.
I don’t really have a chance to sit down and eat a “real” lunch while I’m in clinic, so I just have to grab things as I have an opportunity (which doesn’t always happen!). It was rather odd to be eating crab soup at ten o’clock in the morning, but you gotta do what you gotta do. It does say something about eating before you’re hungry- I’ve been pretty satisfied all day, even though I couldn’t eat all my lunch at once.
I usually try to eat before I’m starving, but not when I’m actually not hungry yet like today. If I wait too long to eat, I get super cranky and I’m completely insatiable. Just ask anyone near me how pleasant I am when the hunger monster strikes 🙂
I don’t know what it is about wraps that makes them seem more portable than I sandwich, but that’s what I always gravitate towards. Maybe I’m just so uncoordinated that I require two hands to eat a sandwich? If you roll the wrap tight enough you only need one! Apparently I failed to notice the turkey I was using was “honey smoked”. The sweet honey flavor did not mesh well with the tangy hummus. I’ll know better for next time.
I’m trying to do better on my fruit intake….can you tell? A banana, 2 oranges, and blueberries in two days? Pretty good! (I only had a few blueberries as you can probably tell from the picture—I’m not entirely sure if I like them yet or not. I tried them for the first time this summer. I think I like them. I’ll let you know my final decision when the pint’s gone :)).
Look what I got in the mail yesterday:
Coconut oil!! It was in my order from iherb.com, along with a whole bunch of freebies I picked out 🙂 I’ve been wanting to try coconut oil for awhile now, and this was the perfect opportunity! I got it free with shipping only thanks to the whole code-program** thing. (You can use code GIR461 to get $5 off….then you get your own code that you can pass on to people and earn money from those orders and so on.)
Coconut oil is composed mainly of medium chain triglycerides. Benefits have been seen in many areas including increased immunity, heart health, digestion, stress relief, and skin care!! My winter-dried skin will appreciate this!
