Meltdown Monday


Stairmill after work.  Lots of stress from work, had to get rid of some of it.


People at work are going to be the death of me.  Stress city.  Oh and if you throw my belongings/work on the floor and expect me to not get upset, you are sadly mistaken.  Yes, I have a coworker who does this daily.  I finally scolded them yesterday, which resulted in them shouting at me.  NICE.  I love when people disrepect you and your stuff, but when you actually finally say something, then it becomes your fault!

It’s these individuals who make my life at work hard.  Childish grown-ups.  I am not a baby sitter.


Mediterranean Crunch Salad

1 (15-ounce) can no salt-added garbanzo beans
1 cucumber, chopped
1 cup small broccoli florets (I  used extra)
1 cup grape tomatoes, halved
1 cup finely sliced kale, tough stems removed  (I  used spinach, 3 cups)
1/2 cup finely chopped red onion
2 tablespoons finely chopped Kalamata olives (I skipped)
3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 small garlic clove, minced
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Chill at least 1 hour before serving.

*I liked this, but it didn’t keep me full long at all.  Just not enough protein from the garbanzo beans.  I may add a little meat or an egg in there tomorrow to see if that helps.  I added my EVOO to it also before serving.

  1. Oh that salad looks fantastic. Since you do eat meat, maybe add something like tuna or chicken? I probably would have had some sort of bread on the side to help fill me up – grains help complete the bean protein too. So maybe some quinoa perhaps? That would be great I’m thinking.
