Lunch sucks for me. It is in the middle of my work/school day, I want to go home, I want to take a nap, and I'm either tired from my 6:15am workout, or dreading my 6pm workout. I also find that because I need lunch to be relatively convenient (easy to take to school with me or at least a pretty quick meal) it ends up being a last minute compilation of shit that I don't really want to eat (ie- a can of tuna, 16,000 cups of zone approved broccoli, an apple, and some almonds). That's all fine and good for some people, but not me. I am a food snob-- sometimes I need meals that "go together"...and that's not always easy in a hurry--especially in the zone. This meal however was awesomely delicious, easy, healthy, and cheap!
3 oz. rotisserie chicken (pre-made from whole foods)
1 C. kale with sesame dressing
1/2 C. carrots with herbs and olive oil
3/4 C. blackberries
I know carrots are "unfavorable"... but they are delicious, the serving size isn't as daunting as say...20 C of raw spinach...and dammit, I refuse to get a complex over eating carrots. They are a flipping vegetable, people! Sarah Dunsmore....HOW DO YOU LIKE THEM ZONE APPLES!?!? :)
