After three days off, I actually found that photographing my lunch ensured I did not forget anything this morning! So maybe this experiment of photographing the lunches I bring to work with me may continue a bit longer than the initial reasons I started to do this (see here for background)
Contents of lunch + two snacks:
- Two (!) green smoothies. Usually I just bring one for a mid-morning snack, because when I make a green smoothie for breakfast, I generally only want to drink about a third of it, so I pack the other 2/3 in a jar for a snack with a couple of ice cubes. This morning, however, I made too much smoothie – I had a 10 oz glass of it and then still had enough for two jars of smoothies to-go. I used 1 cup almond milk, 1.5 cup of water, 1 Tbsp chia seeds, 1 scoop Sun Warrior Vanilla Protein powder, 4 cups spinach, frozen banana chunks (about a banana’s worth) and a few ice cubes. I was really craving spinach, plus I added extra water, and I think the combination of the extra spinach and extra water resulted in a lot more smoothie than expected. I will probably have the second one around noon and then eat a late lunch, since that will work better with my workday.
- Leftover Azuki Bean and Brown Rice, with a side of zucchini sauteed with garlic and chilies.
- Cut-up celery and carrots. I did not get around to making hummus or another dip this weekend – boo! So my cut-up veggies are a bit plain today.
Have a wonderful Tuesday!
