My first solo Meals On Wheels route went really well today.
Just before 11 a.m., I loaded up my car with a bag of hot meals and a cooler filled with extras before heading out to visit the nine stops on my route.
I found every house or apartment without much trouble. The very last meal I delivered was to the husband who lost his wife last week. He had two family members visiting, so I slipped quietly in and out since he was sleeping, but I’m so glad he has support around him.
When I was done with my route, I swung by the grocery store before heading home to assemble lunch.
Lunch began with a light smoothie to take the edge off.
In the blender:
- 1 handful frozen strawberries
- 1 heaping scoop Optimum Nutrition 100% Whey chocolate protein powder
- 1 handful fresh spinach
- Enough almond milk to get everything moving
It was nice and light and perfect to sip on while I assembled the rest of my lunch, but definitely not as tasty as my typical smoothies that are a bit more substantial.
For my main meal, I combined a bunch of my grocery store purchases into one big salad.
In the mix:
- Roast beef
- Spring mix
- Pomegranate dressing
You better believe I ate it out of the lettuce tub to prevent additional dirty dishes.
Not only did it taste great, but I loved all the vibrant colors in this salad. Pretty food!
