My lunch yesterday was really the only thing worth documenting. After a second trip (in the same day) to the vet, I stopped by Whole Foods for the salad bar. Don’t worry, Fievel wasn’t with me the second time ;)
Even though I had just spend $345, I felt the need to treat myself to an expensive salad? Odd rationale…
I got a mixture of everything: raw garlic kale, tomato/mozzarella, curried tofu, coconut curry buckwheat noodles, quinoa, bean salad, roasted corn, eggplant, and some other stuff I don’t remember. I brought it home and put it over some spinach I had in the fridge.
I also had some chips and salsa :)
I was still pretty sore when I went to the gym last night so I took it easy. I did a two mile interval run, lots of stretching and some arm exercises with 5 and 8 pound dumbbells.
For dinner I ate a ton of grapes, some cereal and dried apricots. I wasn’t super hungry and felt lazy. After I ate, I curled up on the couch with the first Harry Potter book. I’ve finally decided to read them again. After 100 pages, I decided to call it a night :)
My Earth Day breakfast was overnight oats (FF plain yogurt, walnuts, choc. protein powder, chia seeds and oats) in a container that I’m reusing!
Gold Coast Blend – Bold of the Week at Starbucks ;) This was my second to last sticker. Next week I get a “free” pound of coffee ;)
I work with some people that are in different time zones, and so someone scheduled a call for 12pm Eastern (aka lunchtime), so I had 5 springy peanut M&M’s to hold me over.
The call wasn’t very long and I heated up my lunch around 12:30. Roasted cauliflower and brussels sprouts and a vegan Boca burger on whole wheat with Stubbs BBQ sauce!
I love the crispy ones!
Stubbs = my new boyfriend :)
Sprint came to our office today to collect old cell phones for a recycling program. I was more concerned with the cookies they brought…
I ate the two outside ones (YUM). I didn’t eat the striped ones because it smelled like the way-too-sugary cookies we used to get at the grocery store bakery growing up.
I’ve been drinking too much soda lately…I wish I didn’t love it.
What do I do to help green the planet?
- Reusable bags; always.
- Recycling; always.
- I bring my own lunch in reusable containers; almost every day.
- I lead a vegetarian lifestyle.
- I try not to drive when I don’t have to. I love to walk and ride the Metro.
- I use a coffee mug and water glass at work everyday. (Starbucks cups are my one exception.)
- Brita pitcher. No plastic water bottles for me.
- I try not to print much at work…and when I do, all old/unnecessary papers go here:
I wish I was more conscious about local food and wish I could afford to buy more organic…I’m in no way a poster child for being super green, but every little bit helps, right??
HAPPY EARTH DAY :)
- I’m getting sushi with D tonight :) Yum!
