Thursday in Food plus Tuna Burger Recipe
Breakfast: I tried about 1/2 c. of a new product to me, Bob's Red Mill Spice N' Nice Hot Cereal. I found it really homey and nourishing and a great way to start the day. 1 c. 2%milk, coffee, 1/8 c. Schwan's triple berry blend and a sliced banana.
Lunch: I had leftover pizza for lunch and was SO proud of myself that I didn't quite eat all of these two pieces of pizza. I supplemented the pizza with 1/2 c. plain yogurt, raw veggies, about 2 Tbls. hummus and some grapes. Really, this is what I should have done two nights ago to keep my pizza consumption in check.
Dinner: 1 whole wheat bun with tuna burger, spinach salad with red peppers, carrots, cucumber dressed with Ranch, 1/2 c. cottage cheese with about 6 mandarin orange segments, 1/2 c. steamed green beans, and about 5-6 leftover sweet potato fries.
Hubby really liked the tuna burger and even the boys ate it! I'll share the recipe below. Enjoy!
