It’s been such a nice relaxing day, nice change of pace after an exhausting week which ended with another migraine and an early night to bed.
This morning I work up well rested, and finished reading the “Glass House.” A great and quick read, I highly recommend. Then it was off to the gym, timed to watch the beginning of the Nadal game. I ended up doing extra cardio today so I could watch a decent amount of the second set, and while on the ET I started to think about what I wanted to fix for lunch.
As a graduate student, who has been working longer hours, trying to penny pinch even more, and still make it to the gym more often than not, I definitely gravitate to inexpensive quick fix meals. When I first began the program 2 years ago I was in a pretty good habit of cooking large more elaborate meals on the weekend to eat through the week. But by Wednesday I would grow tired of eating the same thing everyday and a lot went to waste. So now for the most part I throw something together when I get home each evening. Having the CSA share helps to keep my diet varied and full of veggies. I often end up sautéing a bunch of vegetables with tofu and eat it along with a grain such as quinoa or throw into a wrap.
This week I also made use of an Annie’s Mac ‘n’ Cheese mix, nutritional content boosted with broccoli and spinach.
And pizza, today’s lunch, of course is an easy go to…here a 110 calorie flat bread:
with homemade tomato sauce (tomatoes, wine, hot peppers, onion, garlic, basal-brought to a boil, simmered 30 minutes, and blended-simmered while I was in the shower and dressing)
broccoli, spinach, faux sausage, and part skim mozzarella.
Ended up reading an email and left in the oven too long, but still good.
