Well, I am a bit sad to report that Spring has still not sprung in my neck of the woods, but with a Spring vacation booked and marked on my calendar, nothing can stop my excitement! With that said, I need to get in shape fast, so today’s eats are all about eating light and clean.
Since James is out of town, I have been making more meatless dishes and finding myself with lots of leftovers. I packed some of this Pasta Alla Norma (basically whole wheat pasta cooked with eggplants and capers in marinara sauce) for lunch. Recipe will be up soon!
In the late afternoon, I snacked on these sweet yellow plums I found at my local market. I’m not the biggest fan of plums, but I was instantly attracted by the color and couldn’t help loading a few into my basket!
Finally, dinner wasn’t the most photogenic but was really low maintenance. I made a creamy mayo-free tuna salad by mixing a can of chunky white tuna, half of a ripe avocado, lemon juice, pinch of cayenne pepper, and S&P. I served my tuna salad with stone ground wheat crackers and carrot chips on the side.
I also indulged in a few Cadbury milk chocolate mini eggs after dinner in celebration of Easter ;) Okay, a bit early, but I just love Easter candies!
What is the best thing you ate today?
