Leftovers Atop Salad

Last night's Thai Chicken Noodles + homemade salad = wicked yummy and healthy lunch!

This was my type of salad-- not at all boring! In the mix: romaine, tomatoes, jalapeƱos, black beans, bok choy, lemon-ginger chicken, and whole wheat noodles. I ate every last bite!

I followed-up lunch with a sweet snack made with Annie's Honey Bunnies cereal, raisins, and peanut butter and chocolate chips.

Approximate measurements:

  • 1/3 cup Annie's cereal
  • 1 tbsp peanut butter and chocolate chips
  • 1 tbsp raisins

My lunch kept me feeling full all afternoon. Around 3:00, I was only a tad hungry for a snack, so I decided to take advantage of my Starbucks $2 afternoon beverage. I enjoyed an iced soy latte (straight up, no sugar) at Starbucks while doing a little studying (big announcement about this next week).

Let the countdown to the weekend begin!!!!!

Are you going back to school to get your MBA!?

Also, as a lurker I wanted to officially say hello! I thought I had to after we had the same meals last night and same exact leftovers today. I agree with Mal though, some of the Self recipes tend to be a bit bland.

Have a great weekend in Boston:)

ooh are you going back to school? I JUST put in my notice a week ago at my full time job and I am going back to grad school to get my MS and become a registered dietician! It was hard keeping it a secret from co-workers over the past year while in night school, but it was the best feeling ever to really give my notice so I can go back full time!

I love mixing grains into salads because it makes it more interesting and filling!
