I didn’t forget ALL of my lunch. But I did forget a significant part: the protein! Yikes! Wednesday night Michael blackened a chicken breast for us to split and put on our salads. I forgot the chicken in the fridge and realized it once I got to work. I didn’t want to crash, so that meant I had to hunt down some sort of protein to go with my salad.

Salad with veggies and chickpeas
I hunted down some protein to go with my salad and decided on a food cart. Man was it hard to find a food cart that would sell me JUST the meat. They were all confused as to why I wouldn’t order the rice, or noodles, or other “stuff.”
I was so full after lunch that I didn’t need my afternoon snack. But when I got home from work I did have a string cheese.

Steamed broccoli with Goddess Dressing
It was kind of a mish-mash of weird foods that went together surprisingly well! The pork loins were small and thin. The refried beans were really yummy too. I can’t remember the last time I ate them. When I go to Mexican restaurants I usually substitute the refried beans with black beans.
