My lunch is a combo of leftovers and new stuff:

1/2 wrap leftover from brunch - eggs, buffalo meat (!), cheese, fresh salsa
Steamed whole okra (leftover from dinner)
Orange bell pepper strips
grape tomatoes
peach

Also packed snacks:
Fat free yogurt
Fresh blueberries (to go in yogurt)
Granny Smith apple

I always pack a lot of food b/c getting too hungry is a recipe for disaster for me!

Hope everyone enjoys their lunch.

Gotta ask...what is EVOO? (Knowing me, I bet it is something obvious!)

My lunch today: leftover chicken breast with a mix of peas, corn and lima beans, and a pear

A weight watchers chicken enchilada. It's quick and doesn't require much thinking on my part, that's when I get in trouble. I put a little fridge and microwave in my office. I keep carrots, celery and tomates on hand to snack.

I took canned chicken (drained) and mixed it with lemon juice, pepper, almonds, 1 tbsp mayo. Spread it on one peice of toast (whole wheat double fiber bread). Then I topped it off with petite diced tomatos. YUM!

Short version: Ck salad on toast with tomatoes.

Approx (depending on your ingredients): 350 cal, 10 carbs, 39g protein, 7g fiber
