Another Amazing Salad!

So remember how I told you about that lush salad I had on the plane last friday? Well I tried to recreate it yesterday for lunch. While it wasn't the exact replica, it still tasted bloody delicious...

Tuna Bean Salad
Baby Cos Lettuce (3 leaves shredded)
1/2 Chopped Avocado
1 can tuna in spring water
1/3 can 4 bean mix
1 tsp chopped dill herb
1 tbsp chopped spring onion
Juice from 1/2 a lemon

Add all of it to a bowl and mix - then squeeze the lemon over the top of the salad and enjoy! Salt and Pepper to taste. 300 calories for this little beauty, with most of it coming from the avocado! Just to mix it up a bit today I'm adding 1/8 cup of cous cous. It did take me a while to eat. I was munching on it at my desk.. so probably around 1.5 hours... but boy was I full for the rest of the afternoon! Infact, when it came round for birthday cake at 3:30pm, I didn't actually have any because I wasn't hungry and didn't feel like it... COOL!

3 sleeps until I leave for my big trip. Getting excited now. Going to buy some more shakes at priceline and a plastic shaker. I also need some more toiletries as the things I have at home are too big for travel (you know, the economy bulk size of everything!!). I guess I'm also a bit nervous about my trip. For me, i love trying new exotic foods from overseas places and it gives me great enjoyment to try new things. Knowing that I will have difficulties with eating while I am there makes me nervous. And of course I will definitely miss my husband!!

In other news, I'm obsessed with Crunchy Nut CornFlakes at the moment. 2/3 cup with milk in the morning fills me up until lunch. I'm loving the cereal thing at the moment because I'm definitely feeling the fullness factor after a bowl.

Happy Thursday Peoples!
