a.k.a. breakfast for dinner…but more on that in a bit!
Last night’s recap: my friend Megan and I walked to the gym (about 1 mile), then I did 30 minutes on the elliptical before we walked the mile home. It was such a gorgeous night! When I got home, I had a cup of Good Earth Sweet & Spicy Caffeine-Free and a handful of True North Almond Clusters.
When I woke up this morning, I knew I wanted one thing and one thing only: almond butter + banana toast on toasted Ezekiel bread with a drizzle of honey. One of my FAVORITE breakfasts eva! (With the usual cuppa joe and skim milk).
Usually this breakfast holds me over pretty well, but this morning I was ready for a snack at 10am. I mixed a 100-calorie pack of raw walnuts & almonds along with 4 Black Mission figs. I LOVE figs! I probably love Fig Newtons even more…but I guess the real thing is probably a bit healthier :).
Over lunch I ran a few errands (including picking up a Mother’s Day present for my mummy dearest!), then I headed back to work and delved into some Indian! It was my last leftover of Curried Veggie Tomato Sauce and Whole Wheat Naan, and it still tasted fabulous! My lovely co-worker Brenda also baked up a batch of chocolate chip cookies, so naturally I couldn’t resist. (P.S. If you are reading this Brenda, they were delish!)
After lunch, I had my new routine cup (or two!) of Green Chai tea. OMG – if you haven’t tried this, you must! I could literally just sit and smell it all day; it’s that dang good! I didn’t take a picture, because really, to do it justice, you need a smell-o-camera :). For snack, I did have a Stonyfield Key Lime Pie yogurt with blackberries and strawberries. Citrus-flavored yogurts with berries is one of my faves!
After work, I headed home, took one look in the fridge and knew exactly what I wanted: B.F.D.! For some reason, the thought of Kashi GoLean Crunch Honey Almond Flax, vanilla soymilk and banana sounded sooo good; so that’s what I had! For dessert, half a Chocolate Coconut Larabar (definitely on the top 3 Larabar list!) – I think I have an AWESOME idea to use the rest of that Larabar tomorrow morning (hint: There will definitely be oatmeal involved!).
Now, I am off to finish up the rest of my Mom’s Day gift, which I will show you all tomorrow AFTER I give it to her a couple days early. Then off to a new yoga class – it’s a 75-minute Vinyasa Flow with Ted, who is supposedly supposed to be terrific! Maybe this could become a long-term kind of relationship…Tuesdays with Ted anyone?
