I'm Spoiled

My mom is the greatest. She made my lunch last night. She makes lunch for herself, my dad and sister every night but I usually prefer to make my own. What she was making last night looked good, so she offered to make one for me as well. Yes, I am spoiled.

Smoked salmon, cream cheese, and spinach sandwich on hemp bread.

I didn't bring a plate with me today so I had to use the baggie as a plate.

I also had leftover salad from last night: spinach, shredded carrots, and few pieces of pear. I made a simple dressing this weekend using a fig infused white balsamic vinegar, olive oil, salt and pepper. It has a really nice light, fresh, slightly sweet flavor.

Last Friday I posted about my love for Fit & Fresh salad containers. Em, from Gliding Calm, asked if I could take a picture of the lid. So here you go!

A shot of the whole thing

View from top, when you turn the dial the dressing spills out.

I highly recommend this investment if you eat a lot of salads!

I'm feeling pretty sluggish this afternoon. It's raining so the weather isn't exactly lifting my mood. I have no desire to run this afternoon, but with the Half coming up in a couple of weeks, I can't afford to take too many days off. Hopefully my snack will energize me and get me through the workout.

*EDIT: I completely forgot to add that I had half of a grapefruit for a midmorning snack. Lunch and snack combined came out to about 492 calories, 16g fat, 15g fiber, and 31g protein. Whoa, the hemp bread adds 10g of fiber and 14g of protein alone!

Veggiegirl- I did enjoy my workout once I got into it! I know you agree that exercising is a great way to lift your mood.

Ashley- I love this sandwich! There's something about cream cheese and smoked salmon that taste so good together.

Becca- it was :) And I'm sorry about the sucky weather. It's supposed to be sunny tomorrow so hopefully that means you will get sunshine too after the rain.
