After Pilates, we went to Lill’s for LUNCH and Lisa’s Birthday !!!
Lunch SNACK: LOTS of asst fruits and veggies !! Raspberry viniagrette (1 tbsp) on the spinach salad, garbanzo bean salad, green bean/pea salad, and chicken basil lasagna (~2 tbsp).
Everything was delicious, but Laura’s Garbanzo Bean Salad was so EXCELLENT I had to post the recipe !!
(Note: I should have drank a Rebuild Endurance shake, but time was rushed and we had a lunch party. So I revised my schedule, only for today, and switched my meals around. This meal was mostly fresh fruits and veggies, with a little protein mixed in. The black cake that followed was impossible to not eat; however, I ate only the best part (the icing) and my 2nd cake pic shows what I DIDN’T EAT)
Garbanzo Bean Salad:
2 cans garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
1 cup grape tomatoes, halved
1/2 cup chopped onion (3 green onions)
2 Tbs. lemon juice, fresh
2 med.garlic cloves, minced
1 4-5 oz can chopped green chilies
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 small ripe avocado, chopped
1/4 c. crumbled lowfat feta
Combine all. Toss gently. Serve with baked chicken breast if wanted.
