I had to stop by a Toys R Us tonight for a baby shower at my office, and wouldn’t you know that our favorite sushi place is right by there!
But first I got to work and my boss brought this back from her vacation – althought it has rattlesnack stew in it, it does have some interesting recipes for buttermilk biscuits that look really good!
Breakfast was my version of huevos rancheros. I have no idea how close this is to the real deal, but it was good!
- 1 low carb wrap
- 1 scrambled egg

Lunch was leftover chicken breast, and every vegetable I had in the house!

- 3 ounces broccoli
- 3 ounces carrots
- 3 ounces zucchini

My friend and I walked for 45 minutes and I carried 2 pound hand weights to get some upper body in. So beautiful out today! We decided that we may as well take advantage of the outdoors while we can, so I think walking will be our go to. But I did get a little snacky around 4. Just a couple almonds did the trick!
Hannah and I usually order several appetizers to split as our meal, Tony gets the real deal! Hannah and I split:
- crazy boy roll (crab, avocado)
- aged dashi tofu (my personal fav!)
- gyoza (dumplings)
- lobster spring roll (which turned out to be fried!)
- using calorieking.com, my estimate is that dinner was 656 caloires, 31 fat, 22 protein, 78 carbs and 10.5 fiber
So which meal would you pick? Would you go the appetizer route with me and Han or go all raw?? Curious to see where everyones sushi level is!
I’d like to give a big Happy Birthday shout out to my friend Cathy at Noble Pig. She’s a riot if you haven’t checked her out, her photos are drop dead gorgeous, and she and her husband are building a winery in Oregon! Stop by and wish her happy birthday if you have time!
Also excited about a Chicago area blogger pot luck that’s being planned by my friend Christina at Dinner at Christina’s in September! More details will follow when we get closer to the date! Do I have any other Chicago area readers?
Just curious, even if you have never commented, where are you from? Just leave a comment with the state – its always so interesting! Like my friend Mara at What’s for Dinner? Turns out she works with my co-workers sister – its such a small world!
