The lunch of awesomeness (okay, the one within my self-prescribed limits for the day) remains in the fridge. I was going to eat it, promise, but then I began assembling it.
Roast chicken. My allotted, my mustard aoili. My high fiber wrap with a whole tomato and a white peach for dessert.
I took one bite and ... oh. I SO could not eat this.
I know we all have days like this, when our carefully packed whatever turns into a thing of scorn.
If not, I envy you. Feel lucky.
For me, it was the ongoing semi-theme of "You can't be successful eating out" that spurred a trip to Aladdin's Eatery for a taste of Mediterranean flavors. Oh, there were so many things I could have indulged in.
I didn't. I also didn't order the salad. Instead, it was the tuna shwarma with no dressing. I got the flavors with the reduced fat. Was it the "best choice" ... for me, yes. For others, not so much. But I adapted my dinner choices to fit in with my lunch choice and, well ...
Yes, I was still over calories for the day but it was satisfying and I know that THIS is a restaurant I can work into my daily routine.
