Every day I learn a new term … today it is plant-strong … and I guess I will stick with it.  Today was also a learning day …

Breakfast was a wheat round with peanut butter and a bowl of raisin bran with almond-coconut milk (love the taste).

Lunch was a challenge … thought the catered lunch at Toastmaster’s sure looked and smelled good … Tex-Mex.  However, the re-fried beans were covered with cheese … the burritos were cheesy chicken with a sauce of some kind … sweet tea … and some sort of cake.

So … what did I have?  Some Spanish rice … a salad … and a few nachos with salsa … and plain tea.  Needless to say I was a bit hungry by mid-day … but I did not die … thanks to a granola bar!

Tonight I will be having cauliflower and sweet potato chowder, along with a salad.  (see pictures…one picture is the soup preparation … it is eventually pureed … the other picture is the final product with salad.).  The soup was GREAT!
