Good salad, feeling better
As soon as I knew I would have a salad for lunch, I figured out the protein (5 oz. canned sockeye salmon) and the starch (1.5 oz mini-penne pasta). I immediately weighed and cooked the pasta so it could cool, discovered I had purchased fresh asparagus (quite high in zinc, as it happens), so I cut that into sections and steamed it so it could cool as well. Then at lunch, pasta, salmon, asparagus, and salad greens into a bowl, 2 tsp EVOO and toss well. A pinch of salt, several grindings of pepper, juice of 1/2 lime and about a Tbsp of sherry vinegar, toss again, and that’s lunch.
The Vicodin has kicked in and my eye is much more comfortable. Still calling the doc tomorrow, though.
