I'm not an innately healthy eater. Sure, I use whole wheat flour, tend to buy a fair amount of produce every week... but I enjoy all those bad-for-you foods like mashed potatoes, big roast beef sub sandwiches, and cheesecakes. This is precisely why I'm in the physical shape that I am.
So the past few weeks I've been really watching the calories - joined Weight Watchers - and working out. For lunches, the lowest Point lunches I've found are salads with a little protein. I've learned I have to add a carbohydrate, or I get dizzy spells. So, salad day in... salad... day out. Getting tired of it. They look lovely, though, and at first I was delighted by my renewed zeal for salads. Here's today's:
I like food, and while I'm sure I could spend those calories on some whole wheat pasta dish - a half cup of pasta is not going to fill me up. This does... but I'm tired of balsamic vinegar taste. The strawberries were a new addition today, and were very very good.
