I had a pretty delicious lunch! I probably won’t post every single meal I eat in the future, but I certainly will document when I have the time.
I’ll start off with the tea. I love tea. It is so much easier to drink than coffee, there’s no need for sugar and there are so many types of tea. Normally by this time of the day, I’ve probably gone through about 4cups of tea and starting on 5 and 6. I get bored with drinking water, so tea allows me to drink water almost to an excess. By the end of the day, I would say I normally have about 10-12 cups of water/tea. Yes, I visit the toilet a lot. That said, I do feel healthier when I drink a lot of liquids than when I do not. The tea I had paired with my lunch today was a pomegranate white tea. I bought this variety of tea from the grocery store already bagged. While I’m a big fan of loose leaf tea, there is certainly a great deal of convenience that comes with bagged tea. Anyway, white tea seeps very quickly and you don’t want to pour boiling water over white tea. It’ll end up too dark–my tea is almost too dark. When you make it, you should allow the boiled water (in the kettle) to sit for a bit. THEN pour it over your tea leaves. Let the tea sit for about one to two minutes then take the leaves out. Easy. Pomegranate white tea is nice because I don’t feel the need to add any sweetener, as it already has a bit of sweetness on its own.
Moving on! I made a fruit smoothie on the side. I used a pre-packaged frozen fruit assortment. I honestly don’t care what fruit is in my smoothies. I just grab whatever and blend. Anyway, I put about a cup of frozen fruit in the blender. I used a fruit concentrate juice mix (about a cup) as the paired liquid. Normally I would use apple juice, but that was finished off yesterday. I also added a bit of crushed vitamins. Blended it all up. Booyah. Fruit smoothie. I poured myself about 8oz of the smoothie and gave the rest away to family.
As I mentioned in my first post, I wanted cucumbers and hummus. So I made it. I don’t peel the whole cucumber, as I like the skin. Half is peeled, the other half is not. I sliced it up and took about half the cucumber for myself and the rest was for family.
The hummus I use Sabra’s Sun Dried Tomato Hummus. It’s gluten-free and tastes amazing. I have yet to have a homemade version of hummus, because I haven’t had the time. This brand (Sabra) is super good. I loved the spices and tomato in it. Plain hummus is good and all, but extra flavoring hits the spot.
I also added a half slice of pita bread.
Voila! My lunch.
