Today's salad was short on protein, I saw afterwards, so will have to adjust for that next time.... add some edemame, hard boiled egg, sardine or something.......OR just make sure dinner & other snacks are chock-full of protein!
Started with 4 cups of spring mix, scallion, strawberries, half a pear, 1 oz goat cheese & 1/4 oz. of chopped pecans with Newman's Own light raspberry & walnut dressing.

For today's lunch I warmed asparagus soup I'd made yesterday (using fresh asparagus & scallions from farmer's market) & a SparkRecipe for cornbread. Watched a chef make the soup at local farmer's market demo, saw he used bunch of butter, so based on his ingredients, I made up my own version using, per serving: 1 c 2 % milk (no cream! chef used whole; could even use 1%), 1 tsp butter, 1 tsp olive oil, 1 cup thinly sliced asparagus, 1/2 c scallions, 1/2-1T flour. Tasted delicious, without expense of dollars & calories had there been heavy cream in the recipe. Cornbread is so good, half the time I don't even use butter. Below stats are for soup & cornbread.
