The lunch that bit back.
This morning I watched a very powerful video that I think all of you out there should definitely WATCH. It addresses the huge problem that exists among women today with body image. You cannot lead a happy and fulfilling life if you do not first love yourself. You cannot even lose that weight (or see that you have no weight to lose) if you do not learn to love yourself. You are not a number on a scale, you are a beautifulperson with the whole world laid out in front of you. You can be anything and do anything you put your mind to… regardless of age… but you must first love and accept yourself.
I signed the Fat Talk Free Week challenge – you should too!
Spicy Mustard Mescla:
- 4 oz. poached chicken, diced
- 1 c. steamed broccoli, cut into strips
- about 8 baby carrots, diced
- 1 plum tomato, diced
- 4 oz. cooked lentils
- 1 oz. cooked brown rice (it was all I had leftover)
- 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
- 1.5 tsp dried, ground mustard + 3 tbsp water, combined
- 1 tbsp Tabasco sauce
I seriously wish I could better convey how TASTY this was. Between the spicy Dijon mustard and the Tabasco sauce, this had the most excellent bite to it. Perfect fall lunch… especially in my cold little cubicle. 😉 I’m craving something sweet to top off my meal though – I think I’ll run down to the street fruit vendor in a bit and get a banana or apple. Depends on what looks best!
I spent some time reading about the Raw Food Movement on Kristen’s Raw today. It sounds so wonderful, but honestly I think it would take all the fun out of food for me. No more oatmeal, pizza, soup, sushi (the rice is cooked even in veggie rolls) or pie?? Eeek, I think I would die!! Love the benefits she talks about; but I also love the taste of warm, cooked food. What do you think? Could you go raw?
