It's a problem because I know that I am going to be eating a full meal soon, but I still need to eat something. Normally I'm craving something terrible like nachos, but what I really need is something healthy.
Yesterday I made this salad recipe from Real Simple. Kale Salad with Sweet Potatoes and Apples. It was a great choice because I felt really good about getting my greens in, and the sweet potato and apple are high in fiber and nutrients also. It was easy to make too.
Another staple lately has been green smoothies. You may have seen this pic on my Instagram yesterday:
Lately, along with my green smoothie, I have been having a string cheese just for a little more protein. I was given a chance to try Sargento, and I chose the sharp cheddar jack flavor. So yummy! I mean who doesn't love cheese?
Look at all that protein and calcium! Great for me, since I don't ever drink milk. And under 100 calories.
They also gave me this cute insulated carrying case so that I can bring my string cheese snack to work!
