I do eat healthy sometimes

My health problems are not so much caused by what I eat but, unfortunately, by genetics. If I don't eat well, however, I suffer even more. And no, it's nor so much that I don't exercise and eat healthy food, it's what I pour on top of it sometimes in spite of my attempts to be good (coffee, peanut butter, dairy, sugar, chocolate, caffeine, etc).

Anyway, I won't bore you again with all that, just confirm that I'm back into my jogging program, doing some dumbells and crunches and stuff, and trying to resist straying too far from the program.

Here's what I just fixed myself for lunch today:


It took me less than 15 minutes from start to finish. That's pan-fried Tilapia seasoned and lightly dusted with flour, homemade tartar sauce, a salad of lettuce, tomato, cucumber, onion, bell pepper, a boiled egg, three types of beans, and low-fat Italian dressing. Oh, and I prefer red wine to white, even with fish.

In another hour I'll probably get my running in although it's been rainy/drizzly again and I have to be careful because of my allergies, etc. What an awful curse to be saddled with!

So ... what did you have for lunch today? Anyone special sitting across from you? That always makes everything taste even better.

Looks delicious! I am about to have lunch in 15 minutes. I am having a small piece of steak, white rice and green beans with green hot sauce. mmmmmmm. I eat alone, with the computer. My good buddy, the computer. =)

Green hot sauce? Like from Jalapenos? We use a lot of hot sauces here, although Jalapeno is a late addition and more Texas than Louisiana.

It is a myth that Cajun food is very spicy. It is well seasoned but it is made for everyone, and people add their own hot sauces, pickled peppers, etc. at the table. Of course a lot of us love it hot too.

That looks yummy! Gitta and I had the leftover cabbage lasagna and you are right; having someone special makes everything taste better!

that does look delicious.
i took the left over chicken from last night and turned it into chicken salad (tofu-mayo, lots celery, green onion, salt and pepper) on lettuce. we were in a rush today so he ate his in front of the tv while i checked e-mails before we ran out of the house again :(

exercise and eating healthy means the world to my body. if i don't i suffer. jogging is tough but i like it. are you an experienced runner?
Mar. 14th, 2006 08:24 pm (UTC)
Oh ... chicken salad! My niece makes the best chicken salad I have ever tasted. Her sandwiches in general are works of art. No celery but lots of green onion and she uses MY food processor to "whip" the ingredients up light. We keep it at her house for just that purpose. **LOL**

I used to run 4-5 miles a day at about 8 minutes a mile (not great but pretty good and I was improving) but I have suffered from chronic allergy-related illnesses for over 10 years. I can no longer run consistently since I start to break down and get flu-like symptoms which last for months. Terrible! I keep trying since I love it.

Since I work at the restaurant, I get their food. I had a guacamole salad, and two cheese enchiladas today. And, I get the fun company of my 18 year old cowaitress.

Your lunch looks fantastic! Go you!! :)

Oh, cutting back on the calories after all that fried chicken I see. Well, maybe next time we'll switch. ^_^

I had a rough day today, and went to Burger King. I ordered the small Whopper Jr., though, without cheese.

Now Burger King soda machines give you suggestions on how to mix your soda cocktail. Pretty dang cool!
Mar. 15th, 2006 01:03 am (UTC)
You see, I just love Whoppers and Whopper, Jr's, especially made fresh, that's my problem. It's too easy. There are so many good sandwich shops around her, too, one little "poor-boy" shop about three blocks from my home.

But what's the soda cocktail thing? Is that something that hasn't hit us yet?

I've already eaten, but it's about time again... That looks sooooooo good!

And good for you, btw! I'm buying a treadmill this month, when our next check comes in...

Oh my Goodness Ed, the sight of your meal makes the mouth watering. You definitely master meals presentation so well because you make us all angry! :D

I am about to eat a kaiser... (haven't eaten since breakfast!)

Red wine; the Best! ;)

I'll carry your luggage too
I have two more pounds of fillets in the freezer, Mademoiselle, and a bottle of Guenoc Petite Sirah in my cabinet (not the best but pretty tasty). I'm wishing verrry hard.

Re: Lunch today
Is that some kind of asian tuna salad mixture? It sounds interesting. I've seen some chicken salad recipes asian style but not tuna.

Ooooo, that looks yummy! And I'm not a big fish person either lol.

I was bad today...shared a box of pizza bagel bites with Greg for lunch today, I had four and he had five :).
Mar. 15th, 2006 04:46 pm (UTC)
Oh, I've had those bagel bites at a friend's house and they were so tasty. I don't think I could only eat four, however, unless I was forced to share only nine.
