It was more of a nibbling all day than a 3 square meals kind of day.
before exercise: small bowl of frozen banana, mango, grapes
exercise: swim 30 minutes, walk 30 minutes
after exercise: boiled chestnuts, lots of raw carrots.
then it was lunchtime: big salad from that hydroponic lettuce (which tastes great, I wonder, is it less nutritious than lettuce grown in soil?), chopped concord pear (my favorite pear nowadays), ground flax seed, and balsamic vinegar. and a bowl of cooked collards and tomatoes.
entertained some kids this afternoon and gave them some chips, homemade salsa, apple slices and frozen grapes. I enjoyed some apple slices, frozen grapes and celery and salsa with them.
light dinner: bowl of beans and chopped grapes and curry powder! how's that for a crazy dish that tastes good? a little rice would have been good too, will make some tomorrow.
then inspired by that I had a snack of grapes and curry powder! it was also good. crazy huh? and a few carrots. that was my new year's celebration, ha.
my new year's eve activity was watching a video on backpacking in the grand canyon. that's what I'm training for. I plan to spend a lot of time on the stair climbing machine at the YMCA!
Happy new year!
