It was pretty good. Much better than the last attempt. I can't say I love it yet but at least I don't hate it anymore. Do you have a favorite Quinoa recipe?
Breakfast was a breakfast burrito. 4 egg whites, with onion, peppers and 1/2 oz shredded cheddar in a Weight Watchers Whole Wheat Tortilla, with some Cinnamon pastry coffee.
Lunch was a large salad. My co-workers kindly refer to it as my "bucket of salad". Mixed greens, cherry tomatoes, english cucumbers, green onion, red cabbage a sprinkle of sunflower and pumpkin seeds, feta cheese, a squeeze of lemon, lots of cracked black pepper and a tsp of light Greek salad dressing.
Speaking of yogurt, I noticed in the Sobeys flyer that Liberte now has a Greek yogurt. Can't wait to give that a try.
All in all a pretty good day. I even managed to get in 45 mins of cardio.
