Happy Spring all! Today was a winery day and went down like this…Breakfast was good, my snack was even better, lunch was awesome and dinner was just ok. One of the challenges I face is I have several work meetings that involve food. One way I deal with that is I try to always pick a lean protein and veggies whether it’s just like that or it’s a salad. I’m also never afraid to order a vegetable to go with my vegetables especially if it’s something I’m excited to eat.
Yep, I have an unnatural love of Brussels Sprouts and will pick them 9 times out of 10 over anything else.
I’m super proud I kept to that theory today when we headed to Kinsmoke in Healdsburg. I definitely pondered the Mac & Cheese, frickles, cornbread and sweet potato tots (seriously – have you seen the pictures on Yelp?!). Then I saw….. Brussels Sprouts with bacon! I loved my lunch so much I didn’t feel deprived or like I was missing out. Definitely a success in my book.
Daily Snap Recap:
B: Healthy Eggroll (Mission Extra Thin Yellow Corn Tortilla, Sargento RF cheddar, Fried Egg, Sriracha) – 5 SP, 1/2 cup berries
S: Tall Nonfat Cappuccino with caramel on top for the drive (2 SP)
S2: eaten an hour before lunch to keep my hunger in check and ordering on track – 2 Tbsp trail mix (2 SP), banana
L: Smoke House Salad with 4 grilled shrimp (I wish it was more) and BBQ vinaigrette on the side (4 SP), 1/2 order Brussels Sprouts (3 SP)
S: Nonfat Latte with a little shaved dark chocolate from Flying Goat (4 SP) and worth every single one
D: Good in theory but not great – 3 oz grilled chicken over tossed salad with evoo and balsamic (5 SP)…This felt healthy so I added 1 oz Whole Foods Baked Onion Rings 😀 (4 SP) and a clementine
