I have to race off to my two exams this morning (gah), so I will leave you with my latest quick packed lunch. I brought this lunch to school on Tuesday!
First up — a toasted sandwich thin (toasted so it doesn’t get soggy) filled with a simple mixture of tuna, a spoonful of plain Greek yogurt, a hefty squirt of dijon mustard, and some chopped celery. Topped with spinach.
(For a more specific tuna salad recipe, here’s my all-time favorite: Tuna Salad with a Healthy Twist.)
For something crunchy, I packed some green peppers (love these — I remember I always used to steal pieces of them when I was little and my mom was making a dinner involving green peppers!):
For something sweet and juicy to end the meal with, some grapes:
And a “just in case all hell breaks loose and I’m dying of starvation” Kashi bar, which ended up being consumed during a thoroughly confusing biochem lecture at 11 a.m.
Love that flavor — I used to buy Kashi bars ALL the time but kind of got sick of them awhile ago — well, they are officially back. 🙂
All together now! (p.s. If you want to see more of my quick packed lunches — check out my recipe page!)
I didn’t pack any afternoon snacks since I knew I’d be getting home around 3. Tuesday was nice and warm out, so I decided to bust out my neglected blender and make myself a smoothie before diving into studying!
That’s my Hidden Veggie Cherry Lemon Smoothie (click for recipe) — one of my faves. There’s spinach in it but you would never know! I also enjoyed some unpictured hummus and crackers. That combo never lets me down. 🙂
I spent this morning rocking out on the elliptical machine while studying my notes — today’s exams are in nutritional epidemiology and, of course, biochemistry. I’m off to school — wish me luck!
