I really thought my breakfast would keep me full until lunch, but I needed a before lunch snack. I had two lightly salted rice cakes with all natural peanut butter. I actually like the idea of eating 5-6 times a day, but today I knew I was eating out lunch, so I was hoping to not have snacks.
For lunch my husband and I went to a restaurant called Eleven. Eleven's menu states "As an integral part of ELEVEN’s mission to provide an exquisite fine dining experience, we pursue the freshest and highest quality seasonal ingredients. In this pursuit, we rely on a phenomenal group of local farmers as well as incredible producers from around the country. This enables us to provide you, our guest, with an unparalleled culinary experience."
I ended up happy that I had a snack, because for lunch I had a rather small serving of winter root vegetable soup (it was in a broth, not creamy) and the Local Baby Lettuces which is topped with pomegranate vinaigrette, pomegranate seeds, pecans, and raisin bread croutons. I loved the salad so much, but it was so small. Really there were 5 pieces of lettuce, and it cost $9. This place is uber expensive for the portion sizes. So for Soup and Salad it was $17. That just seems a little pricey for lunch, especially when it barely fills you up.
We were going to have dessert, but it took us 45 minutes to get our lunch served, so we ran out of time! I stopped and picked up a nonfat mocha on the walk back to the office.
My husband and I worked out before dinner. We did 1 hour of upper body weights and then I ran 3 miles.
