So I went to the farmer's market... AGAIN (I'm hooked).

I didn't have anything in my house to make a meal of. Really all I had was rice, which don't get me wrong... I can make a meal of rice because I LOVE it! But I'm tryna to keep my diet balanced... ya know
So, I tried to plan a couple of quick meals to put together for the day. Didn't come up with anything concrete, but I headed to the farmer's market anyway, thinking I'd get some inspiration from what I saw.  I also needed a few ingredients for Tomorrow's Chicken soup.

I found out that Wednesday is the day to shop there (or so I think) cuz the food people were delivering fresh items. Fresh produce, there was fresh bread on the racks... so I bought a loaf. and it felt real soft. I got excited. But out of the wonderful things I bought at the farmer's market... I fell short of my goal. I still didn't have any cohesive or well balanced meals.

So I did something that's TOTALLY outta character for me...
I went to Earth Fare...

No, going to Earth Fare is not out of character. HOWEVER, I have to pass my school to go to Earth Fare and since I knew I was gana need food for the rest of the week I knew that whatever I bought I was gana have to drive BACK past my school to go home and put items in the fridge then prepare meals real quick then go to school. I almost gave up and decided to make today a fast food day (BLECK!!!) But... I went to Earth Fare.

I saw some AMAZING things (bought some of them), and for lunch today I settled on a wonderful Turkey Pastrami sandwich with a side of vegetable chips. IT WAS DELIGHTFUL! The bread had such a sexy velvety texture and the veggies I added to it gave it a zip that you don't find in an ordinary deli meat sandwich.

YUMMM!!! The spinach instead of lettuce really does wonders for upping the nutritional value and adding a flavor twist. Try this sandwhich today. Quick, easy, tasty and healthy.

Happy Eating
