Recovery Lunch

On the way to the market the big kid wanted breakfast so we did a very bad thing.  We stopped at Taco Bell for "food"

Not calories well spent!  Bleah.  Not doing that again.  This giant lunch had only half the calories and 8x the taste of the awful thing I got at TB

I'm not opposed to eating out when $$ budget and Calorie budget allow - but I need to make much better choices.  I fell gross after my meal this morning.    Eating a nice salad did perk me up a bit.  Coffee didn't hurt either!  The white stuff on the salad plate is feta and on the fruit plate it's goat cheese.  I've been subbing feta for dressing.  I can go overboard with dressing and I find the feta accompanies the taste of the food instead of covering it up.  Sometimes I do still have dressing, but only about 10% of the time anymore.  With the goat cheese - I just have an obsession with goat cheese.  :-)  I ended up eating it on my salad instead of with my fruit but it would have been good with either.

All that shopping I do at the market put to use.  I had 2 of the mandarins, 1/4 cup of grapes, 1/2 cup of blueberries, my last tomato from last week, some onion, bell pepper, cucumber and spinach.  The cheeses and spinach came from the grocery store.  Everything else was from the market.  Well, not the coffee.  That is from Barefoot Coffee Roasters in CA.  Tasty stuff and this is my last cup.  It was a good bag of beans.
