Much better day today. Started off a bit grey and cloudy, but the weather improved and it’s lovely and sunny now. Not warm, but hey, sunny will do!
I’m at a phase at work where I have multiple meetings scheduled every day, and I’m finding it hard to plan my meals because I’m away from the office a lot. As a result, I found myself back at McDonald’s today, which ideal, but I really have developed a a love for their Spicy Vegetable sandwiches and wraps. They’re incredibly good and not *too* terribly bad from a nutritional standpoint. They’re also very filling, which is something I need to remember next time, because I DON’T need to have fries, too! (Either from a nutritional or fullness standpoint!)
Breakfast: banana and a small handful of raw mixed nuts
Lunch: McDonald’s spicy vegetable wrap, medium fries, Sprite Zero
Snack: (please note these weren’t all at the same time!) a Trek bar, a homemade strawberry popsicle (low fat yogurt, strawberries,and Splenda all whizzed in the blender and frozen — really good!) and a cheese stick
Dinner: homemade bolognese sauce (with lots of veggies) over farfalle with some parmesan and low-fat cheese (man, do I love cheese or what?)
Dessert: another homemade strawberry popsicle
I stopped at the supermarket after work and bought the ingredients to make more popsicles and a second popsicle mold. They’re a really lovely treat and will satisfy my sweet tooth when I get cravings. Plus, at fewer than 50 calories each, how bad can they be?! I’ll be using agave nectar in my future recipes — just used Splenda because it was what I had on hand yesterday.
