Today for lunch I treated myself to Greens & Grille, the make-your-own-salad place around the corner from my apartment. I was bumming about Ryan leaving and craving some veggies so it seemed like the perfect thing! I built my salad with mixed organic greens, corn, caramelized onions, tomatoes, olives, carrots and grilled chicken breast with their aaaamazing kalamata olive dressing on the side. It was delicious and hit the spot! I love this place, I just wish it wasn’t so darn expensive!! I ate every single bite of this salad and used about half of the dressing you see here.
Then, I went to Whole Foods to do some grocery shopping. I’m planning my weekly meals around my new cookbook, “The Eat Clean Diet” by Tosca Reno. I stocked up on plenty of lean protein, nut butter and fruits and veggies to keep me going strong this next week at school!
And then…I laid down to rest for about 45 minutes. I rarely do this but I have just felt so sleepy all day after not sleeping well last night! I didn’t want to just go and get a coffee for an instant fix because then I knew I wouldn’t fall asleep tonight, so I decided to curl up with Dexter for a little while and take a cat nap. I don’t know if I actually fell asleep, but it still felt good to relax and rest.
And of course a snack!
This totally, without a doubt, hit the spot. Half a toasted Ezekiel english muffin with a big spoonful of almond butter. I relished every crumb. I’m planning on going to the gym in about half an hour and this was the perfect thing.
I think I spent my movie money on lunch today so I think I might just start my new book, “Water for Elephants” instead. It’s been sitting on my bedside table now for about two weeks and I haven’t had one chance to open it yet. I think tonight might be the night!!
