1/2 C bow tie pasta – cooked, rinsed, cooled
1 1/2 C lettuce
1/2 of a large tomato
1/2 of a cucumber
1/3 C scallions
2T parmasean cheese
SO FILLING! I might have a new favorite… and the best part? 160 total calories! I didn’t use any dressing because the juices from the cucumber and tomato coated the pasta well.
I find it so easy to eat fruit and veggies at work! Blood Oranges are in season right now… and they are amazing! Don’t they make a pretty picture? Definitely going to be picking more up after the gym today.
I am trying the Simply Filling Technique today. I’ve tried this with much success over the past 2 weeks so I’m going to try to incorporate it into my regular diet one – three times per week. It seems like it’s especially easy for me on my work days.
So what’s for lunch? Leftover Spicy Veggie Soup (which I froze in to single servings), a hard boiled egg, an apple, and some fat free cottage cheese. I was absolutely stuffed after eating the soup, cottage cheese, and egg so I’m saving the apple for and after-the-gym snack.
And for the rest of the day:
- Breakfast: coffee, banana, egg
- Snack: FiberOne cereal (dry)
- Lunch: see above
- Snack: natural apple sauce and/or apple and/or celery/green peppers with FF ranch
- Dinner: chicken breast, possibly with whole wheat angel hair and/or sauteed or raw veggies
