Lately though, I've been so bored with my routine, forgetting to pack lunches (sometimes on purpose), not feeling inspired to cook things, and boy, can I tell in how my body looks and feels.
Sure, I've been doing pretty well on my 60 Salads in 60 Days, but I need a kick in the rear. So, recently I found this easy little recipe for White Bean Salad with Tuna and Avocado from Kate in the Kitchen, and I decided to try it myself. Tuna has never appealed to me, so I made it with canned chicken instead. It seemed like the perfect mix of protein, fiber, and good fats, plus the garlic and thyme would give it a kick. Also, Kate had told me it's a meal that keeps her full all afternoon.
I brought a cup of it for lunch today, paired with a serving of Kashi crackers, and the delicious factor was out of this world. Plus, it kept me full!! Finally! It's amazing what eating something more than empty carbs can do!
