Day 43: Tuesday, February 12, 2013
Leftover curry and rice for lunch. Had a really good workout at the gym after work. Dinner of salmon, yellow rice, and salad with an avocado-based Caesar dressing (started experimenting with this tonight–it was pretty good but a little too acidic…maybe a little less lemon juice and anchovy paste next time). Read for a while tonight, with a cup of hot tea.
Day 44: Wednesday, February 13, 2013
Large granny smith apple and a handful of nuts for breakfast with coffee. Chicken noodle soup for lunch. Went to the gym, then I surprised Bryan with dinner from a little Greek restaurant–I had a falafel sandwich with tabouli and got him a beef and mushroom pizza. Then I had a small evening snack of blueberries, almonds, and a square of dark chocolate with a cup of Vanilla Sleepytime tea. Finished reading my current book, French Women Don’t Get Fat–hope to have a book review post soon.
Day 45: Thursday, February 14, 2013
Happy Valentine’s Day! Woke up late, so today’s breakfast and lunch were the same as yesterday’s. I’m actually thinking I need to start making a big batch of soup at the beginning of the week to take for lunches…at least till it gets warm outside. Good day at work…called Bryan on my way out to check in before heading home. We typically don’t do anything too fancy for Valentine’s–and try to avoid restaurants–so we decided burgers sounded like a good idea for dinner. I stopped by Publix to grab some buns and picked up a bar of Bryan’s favorite dark chocolate. I came home to a surprise Valentine’s card and my own bar of dark chocolate. So sweet!
I mixed up a fresh batch of guacamole with avocado, onion, garlic, tomato, cilantro, lime juice and salt. Bryan mixed up the hamburger meat with an egg, garlic, salt, pepper, cumin, turmeric, sage, sriracha, and a little lite soy sauce. Bryan topped his burger with cheddar, mixed greens, cilantro, mayo, ketchup and mustard; I topped mine with a tiny bit of mayo, mixed greens, cilantro and the guacamole. Quite possibly the best burger I’ve ever had! Finally, we delved into our chocolate with a few almonds for dessert. Now to pick my next nighttime reading book…
