The day in the typical fashion, smoothie for breakfast. One of these days I'll remember to get a picture of these smoothies. I really enjoy consuming these - I could have these several times a day. every day.
That tided me over until about 11am, but I just had a quick snack before heading off to a meeting. A clementine and some mixed nuts. When I got back from my meeting I was definitely ready for a meal. Lunch was a spinach and baby carrot salad, leftover black bean chicken from the meal the night before with another clementine for "dessert." This was actually quite filling.
|ahhhh I found the black bean in the black bean chicken!|
And here we go! Holiday Party #3 of the season...
First stop - the bar so I could enjoy a Fat Tire. I sipped this all night.
I didn't take pictures of the appetizers the waiters were walking around but here's what I ate:
2 deviled eggs, one salmon flavor, one chicken. Salmon was good, chicken not so much.
1 piece of proscuitto wrapped cantaloupe.
2 cheese stuffed mushrooms.
At around 7:30pm we sat down to dinner. The salad had some sort of granola with dried cranberries and mozzerella cheese (I think). This was really good!
The main course - salmon topped with pineapple salsa on a bed of wild rice pilaf with grilled vegetables. I'll just say that the salmon I bake is MUCH better. This was dry. I ate about 3/4 of the rice and salmon, but I did eat all the salsa and the grilled veggies.
It's not a holiday party without dessert, and when you are trying to eat metabolically efficient, isn't carrot cake the way to go? I'm guessing this cake was previously frozen. It tasted good, but not super fresh. But you bet I cleaned my plate!
I guess this was my deviation meal for the week. Overall it was actually pretty healthy and the portions were quite reasonable. I enjoyed it for sure, but I also am enjoying the meals I am eating during the week. I'll see you back tomorrow!
