Lyricgirl Salad Sandwich!

Last night I made homemade applesauce bread in my bread machine and I just had to show it off. Since I am on a budget my plan is to make my own bread because I love eating sandwiches for for lunch. I will call this sandwich: Lyricgirl Salad Sandwich-made with:

1 slice of homemade applesauce bread cut in half
shredded purple cabbage
shredded carrots
mix baby greens
purple onion sliced thin
1 slice of ham
1 slice turkey
1/2 slice muenster cheese
1 tsp cranberry chutney
1 tsp whole grain mustard

Mix all veggies with whole grain mustard
build sandwich - spread cranberry chutney on meat

It's the perfect sandwich salad for the day. Enjoy!

Pampering my self: Yesterday was my scheduled massage. I had no clue how sore my body really was. The first 15 minutes was painful when the therapist put pressure on my body. She worked on my hip and butt cheeks for 45 minutes because of all the knots. After the massage I felt like a cloud looks. I was so scared to walk because I did not want the pain to come back. After dinner out with my buddy I came home and soaked in the tub for 1 hour. I had a good night rest. This morning I woke up sore but not in pain. Once I start moving around the soreness went away. I would like to thank God for giving me the funds to pamper myself twice a month. I don't know how I went so long without doing it. It's worth every penny.

Workout week: Today, I did not workout because I wanted to stay in my massage mode. This week workouts will include free weight training, weight lifting cardio, yoga, and Zumba.

Food this week: This week I will re-introduce rice into my diet because I want to work on my binging behavior. I found that Trader Joe's carry frozen brown rice that is packed by serving size. This is what I need portion control and the rice is very tasty. I decided not to binge just enjoy in small amounts. I can do it!

Hoping you all have a wonderful week!


  1. Uncle Ben's or Minute Rice or something like that has individual microwaveable servings of brown and white.
    As for the hip pain, I'm not sure. I do a stretch from the Jillian Wii game that's like a lunge, but it really doesn't help too much. You could probably google and give a better answer than I could give you...sorry!

  2. That bread looks really good. I don't have a bread machine though. I wonder if it can be baked in the oven too?

  3. That bread does look good. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

  4. Mmmmm your sandwich looks so yummy!! And, I didn't realize how much I need a bread maker until now :)!!

  5. Wow what a delicious looking lunch! Glad you got a chance to pamper yourself too!

  6. This looks soooo good!!
