Wow—I just made the best lunch ever!!!!! I found a box of bulger wheat in my pantry that has been sitting forlorn since probably last October and I’m so glad I did because I have a new favorite grain!! This stuff is soooo good and the texture is perfect—chewy! It’s so easy to prepare also—just boil 1 part cracked wheat with 2 parts water and let simmer for 15 minutes. I like this stuff a lot better than brown rice, couscous and even quinoa! I will def. be making it more often!! With my bulger wheat I had 1/4 cup hummus, half a sliced cucumber, a sliced pear and……more kale chips!!!!! A TON more!! I practically ate the entire bundle of kale!! This lunch was so delicious and a nice change from my usual packed sandwich or soup. It was very filling and gave me a ton of energy for the rest of the day.
How random is that box?
Before lunch, I baked the oatmeal raisin cookies from ED&BV. I have to say, I was a little disappointed. I haven’t eaten one yet but the batter was incredibly dry and difficult to work with. I got batter crumbs everywhere!! I’m sure the cookies taste great, but they are def. a little crumbly! I’ll bring one to school with me tonight to have for dessert and I’ll report back on how good they taste in the morning.
I also went on about a 3 mile run. It was very very hot outside and I got a bit of a headache. My salad plate was the perfect post-run meal though!
