Nice tropical lunch: cut up some papayas and avocados and put it over a green salad. use light vinegar as dressing.

I'll be having some veggies, most likely cucumber and baby carrots, an apple, some rice cakes (can't decide between the caramel and cheddar ones), and some cheese. Pretty much a bunch of random cooking-free stuff from the fridge.

I do a lot of wraps lately.. flat out wrap with boars head honey maple turkey and american cheese.. lettuce, tomato, pickles and 1 tbsp. full fat italian dressing. Yum-o. I also like just the turkey rolled up with the cheese with no wrap and some cut up fruit.

Ramen Noodles. I know, I know... not a good choice. But it sustains me. I make it by boiling the noodles and draining out all the liquid (and with it, hopefully, draining out some of the fat, too) and adding just a quarter or lesser of the spice packet, cutting down on the sodium. There's always a lot, anyway. Then I add some veggies. I do add that into my daily calorie intake so it's all good.

Today I had a whole wheat pita with a garlic/herb laughing cow cheese wedge, yellow and red peppers, and sliced cucumber on it. That and an apple and of course my diet coke Super tasty.

I have started eating lighter lunches because I always want an afternoon snack no matter how much I eat at lunch.

I apologize for my ignorance, but what is a "laughing cow wedge"?

Laughing Cow is a cheese spread. Their light versions are pretty reasonable in calories and tasty, too.

I had a mix of leftovers, too: a salmon fillet, some wh-wh pasta and sauce, a salad with dressing.
