Veggie Meals to Go

in All Posts

Lunch was eaten on the fly at work.   I added 1/2 cup of chick peas to the taboule rice I created yesterday.

Mmm!  Plus, a bag of grapes:

And I snacked on this Pro Bar throughout the morning and it was SO good!
 

Cherry Pretzel

 

Pro Bar are intended as a "meal replacement", so here’s the calorie info:

So, this Pro Bar essentially served as two snacks for me.  I ate it really slowly over 5 hours (before and after lunch).  I loved the big, chewy chunks of cherry and pretzel — so great!  I would definitely recommend this bar.  šŸ™‚

 

After coming home, I had a bowl of watermelon:

I was planning to go the gym, but I have sooo much work to do and I promised the Husband we could go to see Angels and Demons tonight.  It’s his FAVORITE book (like Twilight is for me!) so its a pretty big deal that it’s coming out!

    Yum, anything with a sweet/salty combo like cherries/pretzels is a plus on my list. Chocolate covered pretzels? SO good. šŸ™‚

    Have fun at the movie!

    those are some perfect-looking grapes! i’ve been kind of nervous to try the pro bars; they look good but i’m kinda afraid i would eat the whole thing at once, and not as a meal replacement! might be a good item to have on hand though.

    what a great idea to use that bar as 2 snacks.. sometimes the higher calorie bars freak me out a little bit and i stray away from them because they’re too much for a snack.. but DUH just eat ’em as two, why i didn’t i think of this before? thanks for the tip girl!

    Glad you liked that bar – I’ve been wanting to try it!

    I made beans for lunch, too – this recipe: http://www.realsimple.com/food-recipes/browse-all-recipes/garlicky-pinto-beans-00000000012496/ Tina at Carrots n Cake made it awhile back and I had to try it…so good! I didn’t even make rice with it – just added some sauteed veggies and hot sauce on top. Great vegetarian lunch.

    The grapes and watermelon look AMAZING- so fresh. I can hear the crunch of the grape! YUM!!

    I noticed that bar before. I almost picked it up. Now that I know it is great- I will have to!

    Have a fabulous Saturday evening!

    Have fun at the movie! Let us know how it is – I wasn’t a big fan of the book so I’m not sure if it’s worth seeing in the theater.

    Looks like that bar has a lot of healthy fats, good job! Although I just like to pop some almonds.
