…I love LLs, because if my stomach is full at 2pm, I can have a snack in the evening, and maybe a lil something sweet later, and be good to go. Eating a satisfying lunch helps me stay energized during the afternoon, whereas big evening meals just make me fell “bleh” and heavy. Of course, sometimes my lifestyle does not allow for eating at odd hours. But, for today, study break at home = late lunch at 2pm:
2 glasses of juice from this morning (I just drank a whole pineapple :O)
Fresh Mango/Peach salsa
Smoked Salmon-Gouda Quesadilla
More chips and salsa!…I ate them too fast to nab a picture.
Self-serve froyo: pistachio-irish mint-peanut butter cookie-strawberry cupcake 🙂

(Smoked) Salmon is a great source of the Omega 3 fatty acid EPA, which has many proposed benefits including improved heart health. EPA is not made very efficiently in the body, so it is best to take it in through the diet, preferably via 2 servings algae-consuming fish (like salmon) per week. If consistent dietary fish intake is not plausible, supplementation with fish oil or vegan EPA (algae) may be beneficial.
