Lunch and Spare Time

I really should have taken a picture of my lunch because it was beautiful. Mixed greens, cherry tomatoes, cucumber, purple onion, strawberries, blueberries, feta and a sprinkle of granola topped with half a breast of grilled chicken. There’s a cafe on my block and they make such pretty salads. I’m stuffed, but it is a good stuffed since I topped off with water instead of more food. I did buy a fruit salad for later. It is silly since I have fruit with me. I think I rebelled against myself since I told me not to spend money unless it was necessary. I’m trying to put me back on a budget. It is a lot like dieting and it has the same growing pains. As an accountant though, I track my money way better than my calories. I wonder if I can implement the same format so that it feels more natural instead of invasive.

I would really like to plan one day’s menu and eat the same thing every day. My only problem with this is that I cook for others as well. However, starting later this week, my boyfriend will be overseas for a month. This gives me a great opportunity to be really strict with my food since I won’t have anyone else in the house tempting me. (I’m trying to look as the positive since I am going to miss him like crazy). My daughter is looking forward to me making chicken nuggets. I make and bake my own when time and kitchen space allows. I also want to try my hand at baking my own bread with minimally processed flour. I’m full of ideas and I will have way too much time on my hands to get it all done.

  1. That salad sounds awesome! Also, when my fiance is on a trip somewhere I eat so much healthier! I know it’s an excuse, but still. And you should post your nugget recipe!
