Lunch for today is an impromptu thing. Over the weekend, I grilled some chicken breasts that I had marinaded in pickle juice (not as gross as it sounds, it's actually quite good as slightly dill-flavored chicken), so I grabbed one of the cooked breasts and a head of lettuce.
Some hot sauce at work, cut the chicken into small slices, and now I'm having mini chicken lettuce wraps.

Since I've started riding the bike again, I haven't done fast food. Wasn't really a conscious decision, it just kinda happened that way. I suppose it's partly because there is no convenient fast food near work unless I drive to Eden Prairie Center, and it's not that hard to take my own lunch if I actually have healthy choices available in the refrigerator.

On one hand, fresh fruits and veggies and lean meats are expensive. On the other, I seem to be doing well with making them last: the only meat that I bought last time shopping was some deli smoked turkey. I still have a couple packs of chicken breasts in the freezer, so I can probably hold off for a while yet. I've also got a pound of ground beef and a pound of ground turkey breast that I'll mix together and grill probably sometime this weekend.

I think right now I'm gonna go for a walk around the building. It looks nice outside.

that does sound good. i bet some lime juice beef would be good wrapped as well. and your right the lean stuff is expensive. can you eat feta cheese? are you interested in my favorite red cabbage chicken n feta salad? its pretty good for you.

I like feta cheese (as opposed to stinky foot cheese), and a salady thing would be good. I'm actively being all healthy choices and shite.

'Cause of the hot babes and all.

love that user pic. its a seeeddeee.
first about half a red cabbage or a small whole one. they keep real well if you halve it and store it in fridge.
two or three chx brst
just a normal block of feta. not crumbles though they are too pricey.
shred the cabbage
heat up about 3 tablespoons vinegar maybe two tablespoons sugar for a dressing. (all in all it will be a low sugar affair - you could even mix them to taste) add a few tablespoons of water and then mix the cabbage into it. dont salt it. cook it until the cabbage is lightly steamed, kinda crunchy and magenta color.
when the cabbage is soft, add cubed cooked chicken and after you transfer it to a bowl crumble the feta onto it. the remaining heat will soften the feta just enough.

so the vinegar sugar water dressing is hot then you add the cabbage to the pan.

I bet some balsamic vinegar would work really well and without the sugar. Or maybe add some small grapes.

never tried balsamic, it would really make weird colors. maybe splenda?

I wonder how it would taste with no sugar? or maybe a sliced raw apple after its done instead of sugar. apple would be more appropriate than grape. Its more a central european gruel?

Lunch in EP
Ya know, SOME of my friends who work in Eden Prairie sometimes give us a call and hop over to our house for a healthy home-cooked lunch. Or sometimes they call me and I meet them places for lunch.

I'm just saying...that's what some people do...
