Once, I heard the expression to eat like a king in the morning, a queen at lunch and a pauper at night.
It makes sense.
If we have a big meal at night, it just sits in our stomachs the whole night through and, I would imagine, could also contribute to weight gain.
So lately we've been having our bigger meal either at lunch or in mid-afternoon (the days we are home).
One night recently, I made cheese and tomato sandwiches and served a nice salad with Boston lettuce, chopped watercress and arugula.
For the dressing, I made a recipe similar to one by Rachel Ray.
I grated one lemon, added lemon juice and olive oil, a little bit of chopped garlic, some chopped onions, a tad of sugar, salt and pepper.
Can't be beat.
