Because I work soooo far away from where I live, breakfast is usually eaten in the car, meanwhile lunch and snack look like a Tupperware party. I didn’t wake up quite as early as usual. I like to run about 3 miles in the morning and then leave the evening to see if I feel like doing anything else. But I knew that I should really go to Group Power tonight at the gym so I let myself sleep 40 more minutes.
Breakfast was a peach nanner smoothie. Prior to the smoothie was a cup of coffee and again when I got to work. The smoothie consisted of:
- 1/2 large peach
- 1/2 of yesterday’s small banana
- 1/2 cup organic TJ’s french vanilla yogurt
- 1/2 cup organic skim milk
- 1 scoop of vanilla whey protein
and last but not least….spinach!
See how it changes the color to green? BUT it does not change the flavor at all! I get a big kick out of the fact that you can eat a bunch of vitamin rich spinach without even tasting it…not that spinach isn’t good. I just don’t want to taste it in my smoothie.
On to lunch and snacks of the day. This is what they looked like the night before.
From left to right:
- Mid-morning snack – cherry tomatoes, carrot, and part of a cuke with humus that somehow didn’t make it into the photo
- Lunch – Amy’s Thai curry soup and the return of the whole wheat pita stuffed with humus, goat cheese, roasted red peppers, and more spinach
- Afternoon Snack – Pink Lady apple from the farmer’s market and light string cheese
I was spooked at work today, which means that someone left a basket of candy on my desk for Halloween. Now I have two days to spook someone else. So of course I had to have just a bit of the candy. I chose two mini candy bars (Milky Way Dark and Twix). Not the snack size, the minis, which are smaller. 🙂 I co-led a meeting today so I just brought the basket a long and passed it around. The group took about half of it.
Rushing home, as usual, to make it to the gym, I dropped off Rascal and grabbed a cashew cookie Larabar. I took a picture of it with the iPhone, which I think I have left in the car.
Returning from the gym I wanted something quick because I was sooo hungry and not too far from bedtime. I chose leftover black beans in two small corn tortillas with a little avocado, salsa, and a dollop of FF sour cream.
I also roasted some Kale topped with sea salt. I gotta admit, I didn’t really care for it. It wasn’t gross or even bad. It just wasn’t something I would choose to eat it again. Dinner was on a small salad plate to give you an idea of the size. I definitely needed a bigger plate.
Lastly for dessert, even though I probably didn’t need it, a somewhat strange combination of 1/3 of a piece of gingerbread nuked with raspberries and topped with two generous spoonfuls of Greek yogurt.
I tried to swirl it around to show what was in the entire ramekin, but it just kind of turned into a mess. I’m off to make oats to eat on the ride tomorrow, pack my lunch, walk Rascal, and find my phone. Goodnight!
