Fit lunch into your morning!
A good time was had by all this weekend with a busy schedule of the Jewelry Parties, Race for the Cure, Tailgate Party courtesy of Bytes from Texas & even some quick Cheese Making, on Sunday afternoon. I guess with all that fun one might just skip the meal prep & go directly to the lunch counter! Not so for me when I can manage it. There almost always is a way to snag a quick meal & take 5 to 10 mins out of a busy schedule to put together a lunch box. I was lucky enough to have Bytes from Texas send home some Tail Gate goodies after her party (which is more than I can say our UT Longhorns left the game with on Saturday evening....) I paired up some of her delicious salad with a canned fruit juice, a few cashew nuts, 2 oz of Gold Fish & a few tablespoons of Pomegranate seeds. At one of my favorite delicatessens I enjoy a similar salad although the portions are much larger. Packing a lunch at home my Bento or Tiffin helps make portion control quite easy. If it doesn't fit into a Bento or Tiffin I generally don't take it. Besides, I hate messy spills or smashed up sandwiches.
Since the Race for the Cure I have been reading more on what foods are recommended to help in our daily fight against cancers, not only Breast Cancer. Many diet plans of this type seek to maximize use of vegetables as well as a variety of whole grains such as brown rice, bulgur, and wheat-berries. I try & buy only whole grain bagels, breads, cereals, crackers & pasta. This maximizes my intake of fiber, which may help fight many cancers.
