Today I am SO BUSY. I had summer running (ran 3 very easy miles today), then I ran to skit practice. My high school puts on a event for incoming freshmen. I am one of the leaders, and we have to put together skits. I had practice from 8-12 today.
For healthy eats week day 2 I am writing about what I am eating right now... lunch!
Perhaps my healthiest habit is lunch. (Almost) Every day, I try to have a BIG FAT SALAD. (:
I start with dark greens (baby lettuce, baby spinach, whatever we have around. Always dark though, never iceburg or similar!!)
Then I add whatever I feel like adding. Usually a red/yellow pepper, sometimes tomatoes, slivered almonds, walnuts, cheese, dried cranberries, strawberries, pretty much whatever I have lying around.
I always top it with my Annie's light raspberry vinaigrette dressing. My all-time favorite dressing.
Not only does a BIG FAT SALAD pack in TONS of nutrients, it tends to keep me pretty full until my afternoon snack. Yay! (: Normally for lunch I will add a cheese stick or some chobani or crackers or Ezekiel bread or whatever for a bit more protein.
I think I'm obsessed with my Big Fat Salads. I just finished eating this one! Spinach, red pepper, almonds, and a cucumber from someone's garden!
That cucumber made me want to start my own garden. If I only had the time! I would love to garden and grow my own fruits and veggies when I am older.
Tonight I have dinner at Carrabas- free! I saw a promo on facebook and signed myself and my mom up. We each get to bring a guest and try a "trio" for absolutely free. I can't wait! Certainly not the cleanest/healthiest meal, but things like this are worth it. If I have an option, I'll try to order the healthier option!
After that I have Marching Band practice! We start our weekday practices tonight. 6-10pm. Then I go home quickly and get to sleep so I can wake up at 5:30 for running.
I'll leave you with some Tuesday funnies:
Are you busy this week? What's your go-to lunch?
Are you going to watch PLL tonight... Or are you going to watch it On Demand tomorrow like I am? (:
