Thursdays are wonderful because they mean Farmer’s Market for lunch! Today, I had a baked yam with butter and cinnamon and a chopped salad that contained, among other things, kale, cabbage and black-eyed peas. The yam was AMAZING. It was also way too big for me to finish, to my great sorrow. To drink, I had a glass of iced mint tea.
I got lots of fun things at the market today. Here is a peak inside my grocery bag:
A loaf of whole wheat rosemary bread and some whole wheat rolls. (If you look really hard, you can see a leaf of basil in the bottom of the picture–I bought a gigantic bunch, but forgot to take a picture!)
And two kinds of feta cheese: plain and sundried tomato!
I was a very happy camper!
My yam lunch was extremely filling…I was really surprised. But I eventually ended up snacking on a ripe peach and some whole wheat crackers that I had packed.
All in all, much better food than I have any right to expect on a work day!
