I apologize for the lack-luster photos, but today has just been one of those days.
It all started when I got up super early in the morning to get to work to leave on a field trip (FUN!). I was out of greens so I blended up some unusal ingredients and ended up with a surprisingly good smoothie. In the mix is banana, avocado, lime, mint, cacao nibs, wheatgrass icecubes, and chocolate brown rice protein.
Later in the morning I snacked on a super sweet and juicy apple.
We had planned on getting back to the office around 1ish, so I had left my food there (except for the apple), but we ended up hanging around longer than planned to watch a girder being erected (on barges in the middle of a river, twas pretty cool), so on the way back, with options being limited in somewhat northern Ontario, we stopped at A&W for lunch. I considered getting a side salad (or 2) to hold me over until we got back, but I was HUNGRY, so I ordered a Swiss Veggie Delight. And I was quite pleased to discover it was good, like REALLY good! My veggie patty experience is quite limited, but this one was very tasty, and very mushroomy, which went well with the cheese on the burger. It was even served on a whole wheat bun. I looked it up on the site afterwards, and the nutritional stats aren’t even that horrible, and the first (but definitely not the only) ingredient in the patty is even portobello mushrooms. If you’re ever end up at A&W, and want something more than a sad looking side salad, I definitely recommend their veggie burger.
When we finally did get back to work, I happily dug into this bowl of blueberries.
And when I finally got home, I at what I had made of lunch (and did not rephotograph despite better lighting conditions, due to the fact that everything was tossed around and messy in the container). Julienned orange pepper and zucchini with raw mole.
And for dessert, to match the burger, my last Skinny Cow ice cream sandwich.
