Lazy Sunday

My lunch:

-4 slices of summer sausage
-2 sharp cheddar cheese cubes and 2 pepper jack cheese cubes (1 oz. total cheese)
-green pepper slices
-radishes
-wedge of raw cabbage
-baby corn
-a pickle spear
-2 WASA fiber crackers (each 4g net carbs)
-ice water to drink
-a piece of sugar-free chocolate candy for dessert

My fiance's lunch:

-a big bowl of Kraft macaroni and cheese
-a can of Pepsi


My plate was fresh, colorful, nutritious, delicious, and incredibly filling. For once, I wasn't jealous of Dan's carb-filled meal. I won't say that there aren't times when I wouldn't prefer mac and cheese to fresh veggies, but today, my meal was exactly what I wanted.

Besides, I learned this about Pepsi this week. So even though it's pretty much my favorite liquid, that image will hopefully make me think twice before downing a can.

I'm not ready the Pepsi thing! I don't want to know.

However, your lunch sounds totally awesome. I mean, Dan's sounds better, but the idea of all that fresh food is really exciting. You KNOW it's better for you, and I feel like I'd be fine with that, especially if I let myself have yogurt or something else sweet afterward.

Of course, when I'm hungry, all I want are carbs, even though I know the other stuff is healthier.

Hi Tracey - that was an interesting link for the pepsi. I sent your link to my adult sons. :-)
