Today, I had something a little different for lunch as a change compared to what I usually have planned for a Saturday. I had: 1 gluten free plain bagel with margarine, 5 pieces of herring in wine sauce, Greek strained nonfat peach yogurt and diet lemon iced tea The entire meal was 62 total carbs.. Everything was very good. :-)

After 1 hour, I had done some exercise using my stationary bike for 15 minutes. This is the second time so far this week that I had done exercise using the stationary bike in the afternoons. :-)

Hi Leah, herring in wine sauce sounds quite exotic and beats anything I ate today for novelty! An all round interesting and tasty meal.

Thank you, Sue. It's been a while since we've had herring with a meal. Usually, we have it just for holiday celebrations. My parents surprised me with it when we were getting ready for lunch, today. Really enjoyed it! :-)

Are you having celebrations right now Leah. I feel I read somewhere that it's holiday time?

We have one holiday we're having where you sit outside and eat under a manmade 'shelter-like' area for a week. You eat nuts and other items that represent the change of seasons/weather. You can also have herring or other items with the nuts as a small snack. :-)

Ah yes Leah that was it. I saw a picture of the outdoor shelter which was specially decorated. Wishing you a happy holiday week!

Thank you, Sue! :-)

I will see if my brother wants us to bring some herring with us when we get to go to his place for the celebration! :-)

Thank you, Debs! It’s been a while since I used the stationary bike. This is my 3rd day using it today (9-26-2021).😀👍👍

Great job done with the walk today.

I like lemon ice tea. We keep it in the refrigerator to keep cold and then take it out when ready to drink.😀👍

I will have to plan for tomorrow afternoon and see what time works best to do more riding.

Yes, really refreshing and no ice needed for the tea/cup.😀👍👍

Hi Leah,Your meal sounds great, and especially the herring - I've not had any herring for a long time, nice to be reminded of it. Well done on your bike too.

Zest :-)

Hi Zest,

Yes, I really like having herring with my lunch now and then. I actually like both types-- wine sauce and cream sauce. Each type is 5 pieces and low carb.. :-) They go well with bagels on the side, too.

Yes, I just got done with riding my stationary bike for the day/afternoon today. Went another 3 miles. I positioned the bike to face the back door to the yard and I get a great view with some stone-like steps so they look like a sidewalk/street. :-)

This sounds so delicious!!!

Thank you, MaCherie112. I like herring when it’s possible to have it as a side dish or main part of the meal. My favorite is the wine sauce version, but I will have both if it’s available, too.😀👍

Can’t beat a wine sauce!!! Treat yourself! 😅
