My friend, Jen, is on her way over to our apartment for a wine date, so I really need to make tonight’s blog post snappy!
For lunch, I ordered a roll of Red Sox Maki, which was made with lobster, asparagus, avocado, cucumber, lettuce, tobiko, and spicy mayo. It was AWESOME!
Even though lunch was absolutely delicious, I was hungry just a few hours later. When I got home from NuVal, I snacked on an Apple Cinnamon Pure Bar.
And, a little while later, I munched on a bunch of dates, which I may or may not have dipped right into the jar of peanut butter. 😉
Dinner & Dessert
My afternoon snacks held me over quite well, so when dinnertime rolled around, I wasn’t that hungry. I decided to have some leftover salad with balsamic vinegar.
In the mix: lettuce, grape tomatoes, cucumbers, red cabbage, mushrooms, orange and green bell peppers, and radishes. The salad was actually pretty filing!
For dessert, I dug into my chocolate stash! 😉
Sharffen Berger makes the BEST dark chocolate! 😀
I dipped my chocolate square right into the peanut butter jar. I love the chocolate + PB combo!
(The peanut butter dipping seemed to be a theme for the day! 😉 )
Just because the holidays are seen by many as a time of indulgence, it doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice nutrition. Using NuVal scores, see what you can do to trade up for nutrition: Trade Up at Thanksgiving
