Oops, I did it again! I opted out of eating the lunch I brought from home and bought lunch somewhere instead. Today it was too pretty not to share. I hit up the salad bar at The Fresh Market and could not stop myself from piling up all of this colorful and healthful goodness on my plate... or take-out container ;) I'll be eating my original lunch for dinner tonight...
Green beans!!! Love that they are on sale this time of year. I tossed them in a little olive oil, agave, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper, and roasted them at 425 degrees for about 20 minutes.
Love me some Brussels sprouts.. I roasted these this morning at 425 for about 25 mins, seasoned with salt and pepper, red pepper flakes and a drop (really, a tiny drop!) of agave on each. Voila... Sweet and spicy sprouts. Added a fried egg for protein and runny yolk goodness - got the idea from a local restaurant in Miami. I'll be having the same for lunch tomorrow.
I went to the Miami Marlins game tonight where I thought I might go ahead and have a hot dog (I know, right?!) or some pizza... But then I didn't! I came home and made myself the above instead. Caprese Salad Lettuce Wraps with Avocado - so delish! And I dressed them with the thyme balsamic vinaigrette from last night. Now I don't feel too bad about the two (light!) beers I had.. What's a ball game without beer?! Oh, and we finally won a game.. Go Marlins!
I had chicken soup for lunch so it wasn't exactly a Meatless Monday, but I decided to have a big plate of veggies (and a little bit of cheese) for dinner. Part of this was supposed to be my lunch tomorrow.. All gone!
