Leftovers!

Hey! Today is FLYING by. I loved reading all your comments on today’s Yoga Pose May post about your favorite types of yoga/positions. One funny little story is that my friend Kara read it, and she saw the first picture and said “That looks SO easy. I could totally do that!” before scrolling down and realizing giving yourself a yoga hug isn’t the WHOLE posture, just step 1. Ha!

Today’s lunch was leftovers from Wednesday night’s Chinese food plus a little office leftovers mixed in! I had the rest of the Mooshi Veggies with the hoisin sauce on two of the pancakes.

These are so good. I have no idea what the nutritionals are but they can’t be TOO bad since its mostly veggies and a little egg. They are kind of doused in the sauce but I’m going to pretend its really good for me. πŸ™‚ My boyfriend had ordered Schezuan Jumbo Shrimp with Veggies and had some leftover veggies, so I added in 1/2 cup of black beans and threw it over a bed of spinach on the side.

It felt good to use all the leftovers because a lot of times we don’t use them all before they go bad, and I hate wasting food! This was really delicious – the Schezuan sauce was spicy but it was evened out by the beans + spinach.

For dessert I had the rest of the Farmer’s Market strawberries.

But then I was told there were leftovers in the conference room from a work lunch, so I had to check it out! I grabbed all the fruit that was garnishing the cookie and sandwich plates, and added it to my strawberries.

Some starfruit and kiwi, and one strawberry. The strawberry was not good compared to the fresh ones from the farmer’s market! It was firm and not sweet at all. I also had to snag one of the cute little cookies:

How cute is that!? Yum.

Now I’m off to wrap up the day so I can get ready for this long weekend!! Does anyone have any fun plans? I’m just laying low and lounging by the pool if weather permits, but cannot wait to just relax and hopefully get a little less pasty!
