I’m eating a very speedy dinner here because I have to get to work and I can already tell traffic is going to be horrible. The bad thing is, for the first time in a very long time, I’m really not that hungry (!!) Oh no!! I HAVE to eat because I won’t get a chance to for the next four-five hours and I need my fuel because I will be running all night long. All that good bread at lunch must have really filled me up because seriously, this never happens.
So despite my lack of being starving, I made a healthy and light dinner—Whole Wheat Rigatoni with Shrimp, Bell Pepper and Eggplant. I’m just about completely out of groceries and all I have left was frozen shrimp and a few veggies so this seemed perfect to whip up! I made it nice and cheesy too by adding 2 tbsp of parmesan cheese. It tasted really good and I ate it all so maybe I was a little hungrier than I thought 😉
I’m taking a baggie of graham sticks (14) to work with me to snack on later. I always need a snack mid-way through my work night! Oh, and tomorrow is PIZZA day at school. We are making homemade foccacia as well as pizzas with any topping under the sun. I’ve been excited for days. Can’t wait!!!!!
This dinner was about 545 calories (see note in recipes section for modifications)
I had a good cardio workout at the gym today too…that lunch provided the perfect fuel for the elliptical machine and bike! I was also able to study for my test tomorrow. Sweet!
