Now on to lunch!

It has been two hours since I last had lunch, and I still feel so full and satisfied. I am so glad I didn't oblige my urge to go to CPK and buy myself a whole pizza, because obviously I would've ate the entire thing...I can attest to that.

Last night I went shopping for produce so that I can incorporate more greens into my diet. I was intimidated and unwillingly shopping around (that's the first) in the veggie/fruit section. For reasons I can think of, I was hesitant because:

1) I hate washing fruits and veggies. I'd rather it buy pre-washed and chopped, but that is already costly.

2) I think some veggies are wayyy over-priced. One piece of avocado for $2? yeah right! --The thing that boggles me is that San Diego grows 80% of the nations I don't understand it when I see avocados in stores that were shipped from Mexico or South America...what up with dat?!

3) I dislike preparing/cutting veggies. Mainly because I am a germaphobe when it comes to the kitchen. My grandpa coughs and sneezes everywhere without covering his mouth. pet-peeve.

4) I have the worry of not using the produce, thus letting it spoil and waste away $$

Those are my tidbits, and to tell you the truth... I somehow developed cold-feet and almost made a dash out the store! but after some convincing... I decided to suck it up. I knew I'd need it later if not now.

I came home and prepared and chopped away! Which helped in adding color to today's lunch.

with grilled chicken.

Greens: Spring Mix & Spinach! along with cherry tomatos, radishes, red onions.
aaaand wait...some new items I decided to try. Jicama, serrano peppers, and fennel.

I squealed when I saw jicama at WF, because I can finally recreate the white corn gucamole I had at CPK. I thought I'd be having a tough time finding it, but it was under my nose the whole time. I just never actually looked hard enough.

Serrano pepper, you sure resemble a jalapeno pepper. Hope you aren't as hot.

playing with fire...muhahah.

okay, now you're starting to look very edible. I was a bit worried there.

I think I better de-seed you Serrano. I had developed a big head last time and thought I could handle the heat, so decided not to de-seed your cousin jalapeno.

 I cried like a baby and drank a whole carton of almond milk. Well, this time I don't have almond milk...better safe than sorry.

Corn torilla from my cooler, which explains the zipboc. Newmans reduced fat italian dressing, and it was my first time being aware of how faboosh! (ha) the dressing was. yum.

Everything looks so fresh and delicious! And I laughed a little at the "had a big head with your cousin, the Jalapeno." line :P

mmm - ice cream! I'd love to try ginger ice cream. Truth be told - I've never made ice cream, though!

I would make vanilla ice cream because it is a classic and then I would let the fam add their own goodies to make it their creation. My son loves oreo cookies so I'm sure he would add those. Look out ColdStone :)
