Packing A Lunch For The End Of The World - May 21, 2011

Saturday, May 21, 2011

I was thinking yesterday how "The End Of The World" as we know it, is supposedly coming today. This definitely is not in my schedule, and especially not now: We have great theater tickets for a Broadway show in June, and I still would like to lose a decent amount before that celebration night.

So what DOES one eat, for the last day on earth? I still think eating a healthful low calorie breakfast is key for setting the calories for the rest of the day. Cereal for me is the best option that I have found. It keeps the calories at around 150 and allows for using a lot for the other two meals. To get the veggies in, I LOVE salads for lunch. It's colorful, it's refreshing, and 2-4 ounces of protein, makes it filling. That allows for the bulk of the calories to go for dinner: Fish or lean meat.

And if tomorrow does indeed come, I will not replenish the pantry with empty calories. I'm going to drink more water, have more fruit (for the sugar cravings that stress brings), and stick to what I started.

I refuse to fall off this plan, ESPECIALLY today. I'm going to be optimistic and stick to the plan, EVEN today.

What do you have planned for the last day on earth?

    Rainbowchoc, you reminded me about the raspberry vinaigrette. It's a great way to dress up a salad!

    Forgetting that yesterday was "the end", Buteafull, was probably the best way to go. I'm glad that before the world disappeared you had a moment to stop by my page.

    Well I guess I should be praying. I started by sparking and then went for a walk. I'm going to make some eggs and toast for the gang. We'll say grace before we eat. I just downed a liter of water, one of earths most precious commodities. Maybe I will reflect on the goodness that the earth gives us even when we don't love it back.
