Food Journal Day 3

Breakfast: Yet another smoothie made with strawberries, blueberries, coconut and water.

Lunch: I absolutely adore my work cafeteria. I made a delicious fresh salad and a cup of lentil soup.

Contents of salad: mixed baby greens, celery, carrot, lentil, sunflower seeds, craisins, cucumber, balsamic vinegar and four small flat bread triangles (these probably aren’t the best, but they’re so tasty I couldn’t resist)

Contents of the lentil soup (guesswork as I didn’t make it): lentils, carrots, celery, onions, veggie stock all simmered to a savory perfection.

I left work early today to study for my two finals tomorrow. I took my dog for a nice long walk first to get some fresh air and exercise and get my mind out of the work zone for a bit. We ended up walking a block, sprinting a block, walking a block, sprinting yet another block. She LOVES to run and gets super excited when we go for walks. Hence why I adore taking her out with me. Her fun loving nature makes the exercise fun and enjoyable.

Dinner: After hours of studying, I broke for a dinner of about 1/2 cup of the left over rice dish from yesterday and some fresh bell peppers and carrots alongside a huge mug of tea. For dessert, I munched a few squares of an organic dark chocolate bar.

In reflection, a much better day. My salad for lunch really helped balance the day and get me some of those greens I’ve been craving. The cabbage in the rice dish is also a really great addition as cabbage has excellent vitamin content and is super cheap for those trying to save some money.
