Lunch. It was a lot simpler before – if I had time I would throw together a quick salad of lettuce, meat and cheese. But I am trying to lose weight and also not eating meat for Lent so the majority of my salad just went down the drain.
And besides, I need more vitamins than I am getting. Lunch today is a simple salad of romaine hearts (2 cups), one small ripe tomato, one small carrot and about 1/3 cup of garbanzo beans. That will be served with a sesame soy dressing, 1/3 cup of blueberries and half of an organic dark chocolate bar. It looks like a lot but all in all, it’s about 330 calories. Not bad.
