Today was a busy day and I was tired from staying up too late this week and getting up too early. I had an appointment for physical therapy before work for my shoulder that I injured when we tipped off of a jet ski in Florida this Spring and I forgot to bring my lunch, didn’t even have a banana for a snack or a bottle of water. So, as a result, by late morning I was really hungry and in a rural area with no grocery store or Wendy’s. I went to the gas station in town and looked around and found raw almonds, not bad, just had to be careful not to eat the whole 4.5 oz bag, sourdough nibbler pretzels, and Nantucket nectar cranberry juice. I asked the cashier if they had any fruit and she told me I was only the 3rd one that had asked since February. I thought it was funny that she was keeping track.
I think I broke every one of Jeff Novick’s label reading guidelines. I had something in my eye which was all red and watery and read the juice label quickly and thought, WOW, no sugar! I don’t drink juice often but thought this sounded pretty good. After I drank it all, amazed at how tasty it was, I read the label again: ingredient #1 filtered water, ingredient #2 sugar! I need to remember my lunch tomorrow!
Breakfast- Oats with blueberries, banana, raisins, grape nuts and almond milk
Lunch- 1/2 bag of sourdough pretzels, about 2 oz raw almonds and a bottle of cranberry juice, or should I say sugar water with a little cranberry!
Supper- Lentil wafers, kuchumber salad, jasmine rice and sabji jalfrezi (veggie dish with tomato base) at our favorite Indian restaurant in Scranton, http://www.newamberindian.com/
