Sneak Peek at My Lunch Box

Today's Workout:
11 mile run
Howdy friends and Happy Labor Day!
As I was getting ready for the work week (laundry, cooking, cleaning, etc.), I put together the contents of my lunch box for tomorrow's snacks and lunch. I wanted to share with you what a I eat on a typical day. I suppose "typical" has taken a new meaning since I became pregnant because I find that I crave different things on different days. I normally prepare my meals for the week on Sunday night, but lately I haven't done so because my taste buds are all out of wack.
For example, I used to eat hummus and carrots as a snack and now I can't even come close to hummus. The same holds true for hard-boiled eggs. So, since my taste buds are dictating what I eat on a daily basis, this is what I put together for tomorrow's meals:

From left to right:
Lunch: Leftover ground lean turkey, steamed sweet potato, broccoli salad with balsamic vinaigrette.
Mid-morning snack: Veggie scrambled eggs and avocado.
Misc. snacks during the day: Homemade trail mix (raw almonds, chopped walnuts, organic raisins, and coconut flakes),  green grapes and protein powder for a protein shake.  
This took absolutely no time to prepare. I basically cooked my dinner tonight, which consisted of turkey lettuce wraps and I saved some for tomorrow's lunch.
Tonight's dinner: Turkey Lettuce Wraps 
Romaine lettuce for the wraps.

Ground lean turkey.
What's inside your lunch box? Share it with me =)
Gratitude Journal: I am grateful for having the experience of going to Tire Kingdom and having the mechanics (trying to) persuade me that my car needed $1100.00 of repairs. I learned the art of nicely saying, "Do I have stupid written on my forehead?" =)

Positive Affirmation: I am lucky to have a family that loves me unconditionally.
