The worst thing about having such a time constraint lunch is my lack of abilities to be creative in the short period I have. On my way home all of these great possibilities came to my head of fun new ways to spice up the left overs I had waiting for me. Unfortunately all of my fun and creative ways would end up requiring a lot of time and effort I was not able to spare. Bummer.
My left overs were still great even if I did not have the time to make them as fancy as they would have been. 🙂
I had the left over Spaghetti Squash Pancakes, topped with Black Beans, Fat Free Cheddar Cheese, Salsa & Non-Fat Plain Yogurt.
It was basically the same meal I had Tuesday night, with the addition of Black Beans. That extra bit of extra protein kick it up a notch, right? 🙂
For my midmorning snack I had a Peanut Butter Z-Bar
I eat these every day, you just don’t usually see me doing so. I’ve mentioned it before, but I always have half of a z-bar before I run every morning. I find that’s the best way to hold my hunger over and give me enough fuel to make it until breakfast.
Since I eat them before I run, I usually don’t even think of them as a snack option. However, I felt like a change of pace today and grabbed one on the way out the door. It’s funny after I was done eating it I had the sudden urge to go running. I guess I have trained my body to react that way to the bars…lol
Do you have any foods that trigger certain things in you head? Or do you have certain activities that have you craving certain food? I know a big one that sticks out for me is Guitar Hero. Back when Guitar Hero first came out I was stuck in Gainesville with my brother and we spent seriously 6 hours straight playing Guitar Hero. At one point we took a break and went to The Ale House and got BBQ CHicken Nachos (sooo good ) so now every time I play Guitar Hero I have an odd craving for BBQ Chicken Nachos…lol
