Trying diet to go.

9 Sep
I work for a gym so naturally we advertise for random health companies.  One of them happens to be a company called Diet to Go.  They came in the other day to do a demo so I got to take home a meal.  I figured I’d give it a whirl for lunch.
My meal included a bean pasta salad, a mesculan mix, and a breadstick.  I also threw in a pear.
So what did I think?  Just eh.  The company is all about portion control so the food isn’t bad tasting.  I just feel like the quality could be better.  And although I have my slip ups and splurges I think I’m pretty good at or at least improving every day with my portion control.  From what I’ve learned doing Weight Watchers I don’t think this company could really do too much for me.  I couldn’t stomach spending money on every meal that was already decided for me.  But it might work for some people who need a little crutch or just don’t feel like/want to put the time into making a healthy meal.
Another 5 miler planned for today and then I have a day off from running.  I’m thinking there may be some baking involved tonight but we’ll see!

Breakfast grilled cheese.

9 Sep
Sorry I didn’t have a chance to post this morning’s breakfast!  I had to see my otolaryngologist aka the lip doctor.  He said everything looks great!  Except he wants to shoot me up with some needles next time…we’ll see.
I took advantage of having some tortillas lying around and made a sort of breakfast grilled cheese/quesadilla.  Not exactly a breakfast food but it did the job.
I threw it on the grill for a few minutes to get it nice and melty.  Grilling is also not a very breakfast-y thing to do but I felt like breaking the rules this AM.
Anddd I had a nice hunk of cantaloupe.  It was so juicy.
Looks like I had an orange theme going on with the cheese and the ‘loupe!
That is all.  Lunch post soon to follow!
