Sorry for my late post!
I have been racing non-stop today. It all started when I woke up! I went to the gym for some cardio (10 minutes on stairmaster, 10 minutes running sprints on the treadmill and jumping jacks), then I rushed to meet my mom, then my friend for lunch, then to the doctor who happened to have a cancellation and could squeeze me in and now I have one more appointment until I’m free!! For lunch, my friend Kate and I met at Royal Thai Palace, my favorite Thai spot here in Tampa. I got what I always order there: the basil tofu. Oh man, it’s pretty amazing. Of course they only have white rice and I don’t even eat white rice but just because it was on my plate I ate half of it 🙁 Oh well. I love going there for lunch because the portions are so perfect. It is about half the size of the dinner portion, which is great for a light lunch. Nothing was oily or fatty. Just tofu and veggies—the way I like it!
For dinner tonight we are celebrating Ryan’s mom’s birthday at his parent’s house. His parents are grilling shrimp, making salad and some veggies and I offered to bring ED&BV’s Bean and Corn Tortilla Lasagna with Avocado because I’ve been dying to make this recipe and now is the perfect time! I’m going to start that once I get home from my next appt. and it doesn’t seem like it takes too long to throw together. I’ll let you all know how good it tastes 🙂
Oh! and since I couldn’t tell you before! Here’s what I packed in Ryan’s lunchbox.
a salad with carrot strips and a side of his fav. dressing from an Italian restaurant he loves
a baggie of grapes and strawberries
a ham sandwich on whole wheat
a super-charge me cookie
and a clif bar for a snack later!!!!!!
Now you all are thinking…oh my god, she packed him a ham sandwich!!! Well APRIL FOOLS!!!!!!! It was ham, but I added some tofurky to the mix, using 2 slices of ham and 2 slices of tofurky. And you know what? He never knew. I did tell him on the phone earlier so he won’t be shocked reading this but he was pretty impressed that he couldn’t tell he was eating tofurky (he always makes fun of me for eating that!). I don’t know if he will become a tofurky convert….probably not…but its fun to try new things and now he knows it doesn’t taste all “weird” and “vegetarian”. I laughed so hard when I told him!!!
