Laptop Lunches #1
So this is the first of my lunches I decided to photograph. A friend once asked me to blog my lunches if I ever made them consistently. Since I now pack a lunch pretty nearly every day, it makes more sense to take pictures, and taking pictures makes me slightly more accountable for what I eat, rather than taking a handful of granola bars and cookies. (Did I ever do that? Um...) So, yes, blogging lunch.
So, clockwise from top left: celery sticks, carrot sticks, leftover sauteed shrimp from the night before, a suffed egg, assorted cherry and grape tomatoes in various shades of red and orange, strawberries, and a yogurt-based ranch dressing for dipping the veggies into. (I sometimes remember to not put the lid on before I take the picture. Not always.)
Pretty, tasty, and nutritionally sound. The good thing about this for writing a dissertation is that it isn't heavy and doesn't make me want to take a nap after I eat. This is brain food, sustenance for writing. Much better than cookies. Hear that, fellow travellers on the journey toward defending?
