Today's lunch was anything but a 'plain cheese sandwich.' Sautéed about a cup shredded cabbage in about 1 tsp of olive oil. Then added some sweet chili sauce, about 1 tbsp & 1/4 tsp of dijon. Placed 1 deli sliced piece of swiss cheese on whole wheat bread, top with the cabbage & second slice of bread & voilà! a delicious cheese sandwich! Add crudités & fruit & there's your lunch! Switch out mango with more berries & you've got a lunch less than 400 calories! (altho' less potassium)

Being (mostly) vegetarian, finished reading the above article by Sarah Haan & Becky Hand with Nicole Nichols, I added the nutrients to my Nutrition Tracker to keep tabs on them, but I don't see where I can add Omega-3 Fatty Acids, or ALA. Anybody else know where they might be hiding?

Tonight's meal was Crustless Spinach, Onion & Feta Quiche recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-detai
Roasted Fennel with Parmesan recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-detai
l.asp?recipe=148024 and corn bread (forgot to add the chilies)
Talk about filling & satisfying!!!

Been listing last three items to make sure cholesterol #s are within ranges, sodium's not too high (which many people's are, especially if they eat fast food) & I eat enough potassium, which most people don't--including me before I started tracking it.

Tonight's dinner was mashed cauliflower & potatoes, Coach Nicole's Vegetarian 'Meat Loaf,' sautéed Brussels sprouts & cantalope.
It was a bit on the high end, calorie-wise, but I logged everything into my Nutrition Tracker ahead of time, so was within my limits. Still, you could eat half the cauliflower/potatoes & meat loaf to save almost 190 calories. It was good, tho'!

Am leaving this afternoon for Portland, OR to visit my son, whom I haven't seen since last Christmas. He recently moved there; I've never been, so we're both excited for the visit. Should be a busy time: visiting a few high school classmates, celebrating a vegetarian Thanksgiving after running a 5K turkey trot & celebrating BOTH our birthdays--his tomorrow, mine Sunday.
And my friend/landlady has a daughter there, so we're both flying out together. And the FINAL kicker: found a Bloomspot coupon (like Groupon) for a limo ride to airport, so instead of taking trains/el into O'Hare, we'll each pay under $20 for a ride there.
