I actually got organized this week & made a menu. After buying all the groceries, DD & I ate takeout sushi on Sunday.

Monday: balsamic beef sammies w/corn 

Tues: whole roasted chicken w/roasted broccoli

Wednesday: fish tacos

Thurs: sesame noodles w/leftover chicken & chinese veggies

Fri: beef stew (using last night's leftover beef)

Monday for lunch I made a shrimp salad w/lime juice, a bit of olive oil, tomatoes, avocado, cilantro & onion. I had that over fresh spinach for dinner after class last night and an early lunch today. I've got just enough to eat it for lunch one more time tomorrow.

.  Well, all I can figure is that you didn't know that oil was fat, or you lied bout the dressing being fat free.  I was trying to be charitable.  Guess I was wrong.

Oh I think it's both, my guess is that there isn't a secret grandmother recipe, there is only a bottle of Kraft fat free dressing in the fridge and doesn't understand that fat free commercial dressing can be as unhealthy as diet soda.

I never said they weren't.  But they, along with the oil, in the oil and vinegar dressing you use, are fats.  Which would tend to demonstrate the fact that you are, as you put it so delicately to bord, a LIAR!!!  YOU LIED!

It really does.  The first time I ever had it was on a pizza in Germany.  It wasn't until several years later that I had it here in the States and knew that the English name was arugula.

Both chick peas and avocado have fat in them.  That's before you add in your grandmother's uber sekrit oil and vinegar dressing.

Yep and they are good fats.
