Breakfast was my usual combination of cereal, yogurt and fruit. This time it was Oatmeal Crisp and vanilla yogurt with an Granny Smith apple. I love the crunch and tartness of Granny Smith’s. They’re my all time favorite kind of apple and pretty much the only ones I buy unless I’m doing some baking or cooking with them and a specific kind is recommended.
I wasn’t feeling very motivated to make anything fancy for lunch and there were no leftovers in the fridge. I ended up deciding to go with a salad (which I forgot to take a photo of). It was a pretty simple salad, just some spinach, carrots, cherry tomatoes, hemp seeds, and poppy seed salad dressing. Not long after I knew I wanted something else to eat, so I made a grilled cheese sandwich as well. Sometimes a salad will do the trick, but this one didn’t have any sort of protein in it, so I needed something else to go with it.
I had some chicken in the fridge and some frozen veggies in the freezer so I decided to make a stir fry for dinner. I picked up some sweet and sour sauce at the grocery store. I already had rice in the pantry. I’ve made stir fries a million times before. They’re so quick and easy to make, it’s hard to go wrong with them. The frozen vegetable mix I used this time was from Europe’s Best. I usually don’t get it because it’s a bit more expensive, but I picked it this time because it was on sale. I have to admit that I was impressed and really liked it. I’ll be keeping my eyes open and stocking up on it when it goes on sale in the future.
What do you put in your salads to give it some staying power?
