I got hungry, more likely bored, around noon so I had an orange. I always forget how much I like citrus fruit. They aren't ever my first choice, mainly because they tend to be messy to eat and therefore not the easiest to eat outside the kitchen. But I'm glad I threw one in my purse this morning.
Fortunately, I had a chance to "escape" for lunch. I was planning on a mediterranean veggie sandwich/black bean soup combo from Panera, but I realized I was craving a big, fresh salad. I haven't had a salad in the last couple of days so I went to Byerly's salad bar again.
- Green base: romaine and baby spring mix
- Shredded carrots
- Green Peppers
- Cauliflower & Broccoli
- Grape Tomatoes
- Black & Kidney beans
- Cashews (these made the salad)
- Red Wine Vinegar + Olive Oil
Most of the time, my drink of choice is water. Coffee, unsweetened tea, and wine are really the only other things I drink on a regular basis. Sometimes, though, I want to drink something else. Most of the bottled beverage choices are too sweet, loaded with junk, or taste too artificial. But today I tried Honest Ade Cranberry Lemonade.
This stuff really tastes like freshly squeezed lemonade with just the right amount of sweetness. The whole bottle was 100 calories, so not bad at all for an all-natural bottled beverage. I'll have to remember this in the summer!
Just a few more hours left today. I'm already excited for dinner tonight. I'm trying out a recipe that looks amazing. Hint: I found it on 101 Cookbooks.
