Hope you’re all doing well. I went to work today and I thought I’d show you what I brought with me. Yesterday I bought some new thermos containers that are stack-able and I also bought collapsible cutlery…LOL They were too cute and I got them in my favorite color…purple.
I’m sick with a cold & dry cough, so for lunch I made lentil soup and I had some canned sliced peaches that are packed in water.
Dinner: Is grilled chicken, feta, cucumbers, olives, grape tomatoes, celery & for dressing I have just balsamic vinegar.
What do you take for lunch ? & dinner?
I’ve been a stay at home mom for the last 16 years and now that both my kids are going to be in high school this year I decided it was time for me to get back into the workforce. Well I got a part-time job working as a supervisor of a retail store, it’s been an adjustment at home since my kids are so use to having me around, also I’ve been trying to plan out my meals for when I go to work and to cook dinner for my family. Ideally I’d like to use the slow cooker daily but I just don’t have a lot of slow cooker recipes that are low carb friendly, but I’m working on it 🙂
Below are just some of my meals and snacks that I’ve made for myself to take to work.
P. S. I just love my “on the go” plastic container, it’s got everything I need all in one.
Please share in the comments below if you have any suggestions or advice. Thanks 🙂
Breakfast: I only had one slice because it was so filling plus I had a cup of coffee. This Dempsters Thin is just 45 calories per slice, they’re very thin, that’s why I had made two slices, thinking it wasn’t going to be enough. But I was wrong, my eyes were hungry. I also use all natural, no sugar added Peanut Butter. YUMMY!!!
I had a great workout today Back & Biceps and I made myself a protein shake plus I made a pitcher of unsweetened tea. It’s 64 oz and that’s my goal for today. If anyone is interested in this ice tea maker here’s a link.
I could have 60 grams of feta and have 12 grams of protein and consume 120 calories. I think that’s a better food choice.
Toppings were sauteed onions, mushrooms and peppers, mozzarella cheese, tomato, shredded lettuce & pickles.
This past week I’ve been M.I.A. due to the fact that my daughter had her grade 8 graduation. I know it’s as thing now, who knew! When I went from elementary school into high school all we got was a pat on the back and good wishes for the years to come. Now it’s a full out party, the girls are all dressed up with pretty prom dresses, hair & make up and not to mention the manicures & pedicures and the boys are all very handsome in their suits.
OK so this week I still managed to take pics of my meals so you’ll have a glimpse of what I ate this week.
Have a wonderful Sunday
