Okay, I was really grasping at straws and only had enough to put together my breakfast! I can’t wait to go grocery shopping!!! I haven’t been in three weeks! Looks like I’ll be making a lot of pasta sauce and salsa! Check out the price of tomatoes!
All morning at work I was debating whether or not to work out or go to the Farmers Market. In the end, since I needed to pick up something for lunch, the market won! Sadly, even though I got there 1/2 hour after it opened, nothing was set up! When I remarked to the cashier about nothing being out yet, her response was “it usually takes us a couple hours to get everything out.” Um, okay, so start setting up at 10:00 a.m. instead of noon when you are supposed to be open!
The first time they opened one of these up near my office in Chicago, I ate there every day for a week! I was trying to see what my healthier options were, and settled on the skinny turkey with hot peppers and a cup of their tomato soup.
So of course I check the nutrition after I ate – it kind of surprised me – I expected it to be around 400 calories – but it was 550 calories, 101 carbs (totally doesn’t seem right to me!), 32 protein, 4 fat and 10 fiber. There is no way lunch was 101 carbs, because my blood sugar would have been through the roof and it wasn’t.
I did buy three things at the market though – jalapenos, an heirloom tomato and baby cucumbers. The tomato and pepper were the inspiration for my party pizza Friday! I made Tony a BLT pizza, and I had a Mexican pizza. Sadly, when I do two pizzas in the oven, somehow Tony’s pizza doesn’t get a crisp crust so his pizza wasn’t as good – sorry Tony!
While that cooked I sliced and salt and peppered the tomato slices:
The base of my pizza – the sauce is 1/4 cup refried beans mixed with 1/4 cup of my baja fresh salsa. Then I tossed 2 ounces of chicken breast from our herbed chicken last night with 1 tablespoon of taco bell taco sauce, then put corn and fresh sliced jalapenos – these were so fresh and spicy!
Stats for Friday:
- no exercise (which means I have to do level 1 and 3 of 30 day shred today! – I’ve always hated level 2 for some reason)
- 1,574 calories, 189 carbs (don’t think that is right), 84 protein, 57 fat and 22 fiber
On tap for today?
- clean kitchen, back room and bathroom
- make my BSI vegetarian chili using bulgar wheat
Have a great Saturday!
