I was traveling for work and rushing to visit a dojo for a 2 hour karate workout, but I needed to eat. So, I stopped at a Corner Bakery to get a light meal in.
Scanning their menu, my best light option was their Harvest Salad. The only problem? This salad is actually 780 calories. Way too much. I needed something between 400 and 500 calories.
In addition, there were some things on the salad that have a high Glycemic Index and my dietician has warned me against eating (mainly dried fruit and white bread).
So here’s how I fixed it:
- I ordered the dressing on the side and used very little of it.
- I picked-out all of the cranberries (I forgot to ask them to leave those out)
- The white bread went into the trash.
- I left the protein (chicken) and the healthy fats (walnuts) to make sure I was still full after.
(and yes, I cleaned up after myself)
