Bring food from home challenge - a slip up

July 26th, 2013 at 03:10 pm

On Wednesday we went out for pizza:

So no leftovers. And I was running late in the morning and the only thing I brought was breakfast (yogurt and some caramelized pecans).

So at lunch had to go out. I was going to try a new sushi place, but when I got there I decided against it.

Than I headed to Pret. But they were out of falafel wraps. So I ended up in a cambodian sandwich shop I like. I was determined not to get porkbelly sandwich. It is yummy, but, I imagine, high calorie.
When I got there and looked at the menu, I ended up with a choice that is not any healthier. But I liked it.

Today I am back on track. Brought in my breakfast and lunch(chunky guacamole and chips).

I am truly like a camel today. I carried my purse, my gym bag (I have a session with a trainer at lunch), and my food bag (breakfast, lunch, fruit, and raw coconut water for my workout). And walking with all that for at least an hour a day is very annoying!

Bring food from home challenge. Day 3

whole milk, fresh ricotta, so soft and delicate.
With freshly caramelized pecans (I caramelized and toasted them myself last night) Yummy!
and a little of earthy tasting(my favorite) organic honey and 1 baby banana.

And a fresh brewed coffee with some half and half.

Ton of vegetables cooked in curry sauce(from yesterday's dinner), with a tiny bit of rice and beef on the side.

Some longans for dessert.

I am feeling like a camel though, lugging a bag with containers everywhere I go. Sigh. And it does take time packing and prepping.

Bring food from home challenge. Day 2

July 23rd, 2013 at 07:17 pm

I want something extravagant for the house, so I have to find "extra" money. Coupled with DH's furlough... I've decided to challenge myself to bring food from home. It is not easy, as I do not eat frozen stuff, and I have to carry everything I will eat -- I don't drive to work, I take the train and do a lot of walking.

Today was day 2 of me bringing both breakfast and lunch. That is pretty much a record for me.

Morning - fresh bagel, toasted, with cream cheese and marinated sardine in olive oil.
Coffee with half and half, made at the office.

Lunch -- I made this at home and brought it for lunch. Not bad!
Next time I will add garlic and caramelized pecan pieces into the top beet layer.
