According to WordPress, some of Raspberry Runner’s frequently searched terms are “awesome”, “awesome images”, “awesome pics.” Apparently, I use the word “awesome” way too much in my posts. I think I need to get more creative with my adjectives…
Yesterday, I had an awesome magnificent lunch!
A toasted sandwich with chopped chicken breast, havarti cheese (so good!!), spinach, and honey dijon mustard on TJ’s sprouted wheat bread:
The TJ’s sprouted wheat bread has 5 grams of protein and only 60 calories per slice. That’s pretty impressive. The bread by itself is a little dry and not particularly flavorful, but it makes delicious sandwich bread! I bet it would make good french toast, too. Hmmm….
On the side I had edamame coleslaw, which was a recipe from Clean Eating this month:
I don’t eat normal coleslaw because it just looks like mayo with cabbage in it. Clean Eating’s version has a light apple cider vinegar and honey marinade instead of mayo. And it has edamame in it. Yum!
Somehow, I was still hungry after all this, so I microwaved a small sweet potato, mashed it with cinnamon, topped it with plain greek yogurt, and called it dessert!
Despite the fact that sweet potatoes are 100 times better when baked in the oven rather than microwaved, this “dessert” was still awesome marvelous.
Healthy desserts can be satisfying, but I cannot wait until Easter when I can eat real sweets (chocolate!!!!!) again. One and a half more weeks! I just need to remind myself not to get too excited and eat my body weight in ice cream. I am a little nervous that I will go on a sugar binge after 40 days of abstaining. Must. Practice. Moderation.
Some people can just have one bite (or very small portion) of dessert and feel satisfied. For others, that little taste makes them want more. I am definitely the latter. Which kind of person are you?
