I’ve decided against doing the PFJ thing in photo form. Instead, I’m going to keep my food journal via e-mail and do a “featured meal.”
Wednesday’s featured meal is lunch. Pretty, isn’t it?
Being broke until payday, I had to get creative in the kitchen.
I knew I wanted fries … more specifically, sweet potato fries. (The serving I saw on Tina’s blog, Faith Fitness Fun, the other day gave me a hankering.) Luckily, I had a sweet potato in the pantry, just begging to be used. So I cut it up and made a batch of my famous Foreman Fries (on the George Foreman grill, of course!).
Alongside, I whipped up some homemade ranch (Greek yogurt mixed with ranch dressing mix).
The fries were delicious, but the highlight of my meal was easily the McRib knockoff I made to go with them. I used a Morningstar Farms riblet, sliced onion and pickles, and a Sandwich Thin.
Between the cutting of the “fries” and the preparation of the sandwich, it wasn’t exactly a fast meal — but its taste and nutrition more than made up for the lack of drive-thru convenience.
Right? Right. I eat much better when I fix it myself.
More good news: I actually got outside for a 12-minute walk today. In a sign of just how long it’s been since I exercised with any frequency, my calves were burning at the end of the walk … but 12 minutes is better than no minutes.
Tomorrow I’m going for 15.
