Do You Ever Just Feel Like Going Out in the Field and Grazing?

That's what a co-worker said to me after lunch when I was raving about my love of arugula.

I replied, "Do you ever feel like just biting the head off a live chicken?"

The conversation quickly devolved into a discussion of free range chocolate Easter Bunnies.

Meanwhile, I had a slight change of food plan because I had to run out to do a work errand, so I met the work gang at the cafeteria. VLC took my lunch downstairs, and I didn't want to burden her with microwaving the tomato tofu, so I just asked her to bring down my salad, dressing (with five olives in it) and a cottage cheese. I had eaten my eggwhite scramble on schedule at 11 ish, so I was pretty hungry by 1:15. The total was right around 65 for the salad, including 45 on the olives, since it was just arugula and romaine with a few scallions. The lowfat cottage cheese was 90 cals with 11 g protein. So I am up to 455 calories so far today and 67 g of protein. Not bad! Tonight I will definitely have something cruciferous and perhaps a tomato. I think the tofu will wait till tomorrow since I'm already at protein goal and I don't want to go over cals again after last night's pretzel disaster.
