Yay, pears have been chosen as this week’s BSI! Stay on the lookout for some pears sneaking their way into my food this week!
Although the weather is very rainy/dreary today, my day is going by pretty well. I have to admit I am looking forward to going home and hanging out in my PJ’s while I wait for my dinner to cook. Still trying to decide what should be on the menu tonight – although I have a pretty good idea of what I’m craving… 😉 Lunch today was at my desk as usual – I was tempted to order Chinese food w/ some of my co-workers, but I’ve never eaten Chinese food and not felt incredibly sick and bloated afterwards (even when I get the healthy options) so I stuck to what I packed. It was sooo yummy that I didn’t think twice about Fried Rice once I started.
I packed a salad chock full of goodies! ! large chopped apple, 1 big stalk celery, 2 carrots and a handful of pistachios. I threw everything in my Fit ‘N Fresh salad container with some balsamic vinegar for the dressing. I love those containers because they’re so good about not leaking your dressing. Genius!
Along with my salad I also had some plain yogurt topped with one of the most delicious things in the world: raw honey + a piece of honecomb!!! I absolutely love honeycombs. Hehe I feel like Pooh Bear! My mom used to get us these as treats when we were little. Plus raw honey is extra good for you – containing bits of pollen and all the delightful antibacerial, etc properties of untreated honey. It came from this jar of honey that my mom got for me… I guard it with my life.
I also had a nature valley bar, which I crumbled into my yogurt once I ate the honeycomb off of it (since you have to spit out the wax). I try to avoid eating food in bar form, but I love granola and it’s just so convenient in bar form like this. Plus I have the tendency to just eat from the bag and keep going, so the individual bar form is kind of convenient for me.
