mmmmm, Yet another yummy lunch made by my Dear Bear. In the top left corner there is a scrambled egg with mushrooms and pepper and baby dill pickles. In the top right pocket there are strawberries and blue berries. In the bottom left pocket is our family's favorite peanut butter quesadillas, and in the bottom right pockets there are snap peas and a small inch long chunk of smoked turkey sausage. Mmmmm. I think that because there is such a large variety of things in the lunch I fill up faster. This lunch is approximately 275 to 300 calories. Lunch is our biggest meal. Also we've switched to buying medium eggs. Size wise we really can't tell the difference between a medium egg and an extra large egg now that we made the switch but it cuts 17 calories and 59.2 mg of cholesterol. Well worth it. With all of the changes we've made to our diet, Bear and I have each lost over 30 lbs. I am almost to my first mini goal. Wish me luck and Enjoy!

Bento Lunches (Kind of)

I keep meaning to post these lunches. Bear and I are loving our Bento lunch boxes. The compartments help in planning what and how much to pack. From the top left: snap peas, rice balls, tiny yellow pepper, blue berries, turkey sausage, and tamagoyaki.
This is today's lunch. From the top left corner: Brussels sprouts, turkey sausage, rice ball and egg, blue berries and strawberries, more rice balls and some green olives. The green olives are Lindsey brand. Their website says that they are gluten free and so far I have had no problems with them. Enjoy!

Biaggi's and 30lb Marker

Yum, another wonderful trip too Biaggi's. This time I tried the Cesar Salad (no croutons).
Filling and sooo yummy. I missed the dairy, but still wont bring it home. Even though I indulged in this creamy salad I've still managed to loose more weight. I've now lost 30 lbs!!

This is kind of tacked on the end, but I had to share our home grown strawberries. 100% organic and so beautiful. In the past our strawberries have never grown so big and juicy.
Aren't they lovely? Enjoy!
