So for dinner last night, I had pizza (which was already planned before I knew it was National Pizza Week) I had Dewey’s Pizza to be exact.

Before pizza I had the House salad: A mix of Field Greens and Romaine Lettuce, toasted Pine Nuts, Sun-Dried Cranberries and Goat Cheese with the apple cider vinaigrette on the side.

I literally ate them on the go- in the car on the way to work 🙂  When I got to work I finished my breakfast with a grapefruit.

When I was little my mom would cut the grapefruit in half and sprinkle sugar ALL over it!  I loved this when I was little although it wasn’t the healthiest.   I didn’t think I would like grapefruit without sugar, but I was wrong.

If you don’t like grapefruit because it is too tart, just eat it again, and again, and again, and finally you will love the flavor like I do!

When I work 10-12 hours, I have to think ahead and pack all my food in little zip lock baggies.  This is my meal preparation the night before:

My afternoon snack was my go to protein shake, cookies n cream flavor just mixed with water and a little bit of ice.  I like my shakes COLD! I also had some baby carrots.

Fibrous carbohydrates (carrots) not only help suppress appetite, but they help increase the absorption of protein that you ingest!

Here is a vegetable list of other fibrous carbs:

Kale
Broccoli
Lettuce
Squash
Spinach
Peppers

If you aren’t a vegetable fan you can try oats, brown rice, or red potatoes that digest slower also.

Lunch:

For lunch at work I packed leftover Kale, Chickpea, and Sausage soup with a salad which was a mix of romaine lettuce, cucumber, tomato, feta cheese, and sliced almonds.

Afternoon Snack:

2 granola energy balls with blackberries.  I wish I would have packed more berries because they were SO good!
