The perfect lunch break….

Today has not been too bad of a day going back to work after a long holiday weekend.  Then again, getting a pedicure at lunch probably put me in a nice peaceful “Zen” state LOL.

This morning I snacked on some TJ’s Organic 0% Greek Vanilla Bean yogurt with some Fiber one and a TJ’s Cat that is hiding in the cereal :)


My pedicure was awesome and I now officially have opalescent blue-ish toe nails ~ Fun!  I was pondering all day if I was going to eat the lunch I brought of pick up Thai that was next to the nail place…..Can you guess what won?  Since I got it all togo, it came in cute recyclable containers.

I started off with salad in a Spicy Thai Peanut Dressing – LOVE this sauce!


And for the main dish I ordered the Spicy Cashew Chicken ~ Chicken breast with cashews, dried chili’s, onion, green onions and garlic ~ Soooo Good! But, it’s better when you get it there since I was officially able to see the oil they use when they make it *sigh* I liked it better when I could deny that it had oil :D


Plus ~ 1 cup of brown rice.


They actually give you way more rice than you need so I only scooped out what I needed to feel full and satisfied. I LOVE brown rice, it really doesn’t need anything on it.


This might have been one of the most perfect lunch breaks ever!  Thai+pedi – ahhhh!  My lunch was so completely satisfying.  It filled me up and I do not need a PM snack ~ yeah, i can save a few calories/points that way.  Next time I think I’ll ask to see if they can add more, real veggies to it maybe……

I did pick up 3 super cute sample packs for my niece and nephew today ~ Super Cute Annie’s Organic Pretzel Bunnies and Carrots.  I will get to see them this weekend when my sis and I go for our pampering session – yeah!

Alright all ~ I am off to workout as I still have a TON of steps to get in to reach my minimum 10,000 step count.  I am not sure what the plans are for tonight, but, hopefully I have some time to work on my new blog layout and to post the interview I owe you all.
