A travel day today. Haven’t had one of those for awhile, not for business anyway. I did get my morning workout in, a normal breakfast and a suitable lunch on the plane. A little overindulgence at dinner tonight, but not too bad. Now I need to try to get to sleep to start battling jet lag, get up early and get some time in the gym before breakfast.
Here’s what I ate today:
- Oatmeal with molasses & agave nectar, blueberries, pecans, flaxseed and hemp hearts
- (On the plane) Grilled vegetable and bean burrito, 1/2 yellow bell pepper, banana
- Vegetable pot stickers
- Veggie wrap with sweet potato fries
- Apple pie
- Glass of Cabernet (x2)
So besides the apple pie and the 2nd glass of cabernet, the big indulgence at dinner came in the form of unwanted, regular potato fries. I ordered sweet potato and as soon as the waiter set the plate down in front of me, he said “Oh, you asked for sweet potato fries, didn’t you? I’ll get you an order of those.” I should have asked him to take away the potato fries, but I ate all of them including the sweet potato. I was hungry, but still I would have been better off. Particularly because I followed it all up with the slice of pie. It was a very satisfying dinner though, I must say…
The burrito for lunch was last night’s leftover grilled vegetables mixed with a can of cannelini beans and some salsa, wrapped in a tortilla. Really quite good. The smokiness of the veggies came through in a way that it did not last night.
I’d call that a vegan day, but I can’t vouch for the pie crust.
