said my stomach.
Nothing could subdue it. Certainly not my lovingly packed lunch that kind of looks like it has eyes and is looking at me:
On the menu today was a couple clementines, a bit more of my leftover kale and red cabbage salad with some avocado on top…
And a delicious egg, black bean, salsa, and spinach sandwich. Hell yes you read that right. Salsa is back with a vengeance!!
To save time (this lunch came together this morning in 5 minutes flat), I prepared the eggs in the microwave. I broke two whole eggs into a bowl, whisked until mixed, and then popped them in the microwave for a minute and a half. Perfecto!
I put the cooked egg patty (topped with a little salt and pepper) on top of a whole wheat pita (toasted, of course!).
Then I added black beans (which are awesome with eggs by the way)…
Then salsa, obviously…
And then I topped it all with a MASSIVE handful of spinach that I microwaved for about a minute til it was a little wilted.
And normally this would have been the perfect lunch (followed by afternoon snacks of course), but I went to the gym this morning before work (pumped some iron… no big deal) and forgot how HUNGRY that makes me the rest of the day!
I ate breakfast this morning at home, then when I got to work I had a massive thing of black tea with tons of skim milk (my favorite! no sweetener needed). Then, I ate my sandwich at 11:30 a.m. There was a large amount of willpower involved in even waiting that long. At noon, I ate my clementines. This was getting dire. At 12:30, my coworker asked if I wanted to walk over to Corner Bakery with her. Clearly I went and got a second lunch — a big bowl of delicious lentil and vegetable soup and a roll! I finally ate my salad around 3, followed by an apple cinnamon Cliff Z bar at 4.
Finally, the stomach gods were satisfied.
My coworker was highly entertained by my 12 meals.
Anyway. Is it time for dinner yet? 😉
