Happy Monday! Okay, okay, that’s a bit of an oxymoron. I hope you all are having a good start to the week! 

This morning, according to my weekly workout schedule, I had a 3 mile run plus strength training! I jogged to the gym and got going on the treadmill! I switched back and forth between 7.0 and 8.0 every half mile and ended up running 3 miles in 24:38, which is an 8:12 min/mile pace. Again, always faster on the treadmill! After running, I spent another 30 minutes doing some ab work and then upper body weights. I finished off with 10 minutes on the elliptical.

Once I got back from my workout, I showered and headed to the kitchen, because I was starving! While I thought over my options, I ate a fig with a bit of Greek yogurt… And then I decided to make myself a Berry Protein Smoothie! The smoothie’s sweetness hit the spot, and it was perfect for one of our last hot days of the year! 

Since I eat at least 3 lunches and 2 dinners at school every week, I have to plan ahead and make them all on Sunday! For lunch this week, I decided to try Kath’s Tuna Salad Recipe from Kath Eats Real Food!

I tripled her ingredients so it would work for three lunches, and used low fat Greek yogurt:

Mix together:

  • 9 oz of pink salmon (or tuna)
  • 3 tsp curry powder
  • 3 tbsp low fat plain Greek yogurt
  • 3 tsp dijon mustard
  • 3 large celery stalks, diced
  • 3 large carrots, diced
In addition to the “Tuna” (aka salmon) Salad, I made Smoke Salmon Omelet Muffins, also by Kath! I made these true to the recipe, except I didn’t have any parmesan cheese so I didn’t add that in… obviously.


I also used chia seeds instead of flax since I didn’t have any flax… winning. 


They smelled so good!!!

So here’s my lunch for Monday, and an example of what I’ll also bring Wednesday and Thursday:

For Monday, I have to stay at school until 7:30 and then I don’t get home until 8:30, so I bring “dinner” to eat during my last class. Last week, my teacher called on me while I was eating my Wheatberry Navy Salad, and said he was so sorry to interrupt my dinner. Got it, Professor. Less obvious food. 

So for dinner this week, I packed a PB&J sandwich (with blackberry jam!), sliced apples, and some multi-grain Trader Joe’s O’s. I also planned to buy a small salad and some yogurt for an afternoon snack from the cafeteria. I like having a little bit of flexibility when I’m bringing an entire day of food – I hate eating only what I pack if I’m not in the mood for it.

How do you deal with packing meals for the day? Does anyone have to pack two meals, or just lunch? Any good ideas for what to bring? Remember, I’ve got to be sure to incorporate proteins, carbs and healthy fats! 

Update on the Hermit Crabs: molting crab is still alive! I saw him moving this morning. He immediately hid in his shell when I walked past… I don’t think they like me. Names to come soon – keep the Harry Potter name suggestions coming! P.S. whoever named their cat Luna – I laughed out loud at that one. Great name.
