(no subject)

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.
