Sorry for the late lunch post, guys. I think this (combining my lunch + dinner posts) is going to be the norm on days I have to work and go to school at night. I just don’t have time to make three separate posts because I’m literally only at my apartment for 30 minutes at a time and it’s sort of silly to post lunch around 5 and dinner around 5:30 when I could just economize and post them together. I hope you all don’t mind!
Today for lunch I packed a really yummy (and really filling!) sandwich on my french bread that I baked last night. It had tofurky, “cheese”, lettuce and whole grain dijon mustard. I also had the ripest, juiciest pear I’ve had all season. I had to hold a napkin under my chin while eating because it was dribbling everywhere! So delicious! My lunch actually kept me full all afternoon! I only snack on grapes and whole wheat crackers because I was bored at work and just wanted to nibble on something. Speaking of filling—I think that Ezekiel cereal might become my new “oatmeal”! It actually keeps me full longer than oatmeal…I had a single serving for breakfast this morning and was full for about the next 3.5 hours til I ate lunch. Wow!!!
Dinner was awesome…leftover quinoa stir-fry from last night. This has got to be one of my new favorite meals of all time. The combo of flavors is just fantastic!!!! I love every single bite! note that you can use peas in the recipe but I used steamed edamame because I had a large bag in my freezer I need to get through!
Tonight at school we are making three different types of artisan bread variations as well as pita bread and…pizza! I plan to make mine tonight and bring it home to have for lunch tomorrow!
I’m sooooooo exhausted right now that my eyes are burning…and its pouring outside! I don’t know how I will make it til midnight tonight! Praying for no more car troubles!!
