This morning went by really quickly, and I managed to be very productive. My green monster held me until about 10 when I started craving my favorite sweet and savory combination:
Apples + Pepperjack = YUM
After my snack, I worked until around 12:40, when I broke for a longer break. I have a rule about lunch.
Thou shalt not eat lunch at thy desk.
Any other meal is okay. I even eat dinner at my desk sometimes when I have a deadline or something. But, lunch, no. Lunch is a time to relax. Even if it's only 20 minutes.
Lunch today was a creative use of yesterday's dinner. I combined the remaining half of my Coconut-encrusted Tilapia with a bit of salsa to create a southwestern tilapia salad.
I'm out of sandwich thins, so I used a toasted Ezekiel Muffin. This was really tasty, but way too filling. My aim was to have a big lunch, since my dinner will be small and rushed (class tonight). I could only eat half of the sammy.
I also warmed up the remaining shellie beans. I definitely ate all of those! And, all my maters, too.
The whole spread:
Yes, that's a fairly large lunch, but I need something that will keep me full for a while. I only have a 15 minute break between my lecture, which starts at 5:30, and my lab which runs from 7-10pm. I needed to pack something that would fit in my school bag, and would be a very quick scarf.
So, what I came up with was a half PB&J on the Darnizky bread (these slices are huge), two cuties, and a mix of pretzels and Kashi Honey Sunshine. I figure I can put the mix in my pocket and steal bites during my Chemistry Lab.
I know this isn't the best dinner, but I drew a blank on ideas. Wednesday nights are the only night I'll need to do this. Basically, I need something that's filling enough to get me through 5 hours of school and will fit in my bag. Nothing messy.
Last chance on the contest. It ends tonight. I'll announce the winner in the morning.
