Mini-Meal Friday

Woowoo for the weekend!  As the title of my post suggests, it was all about the mini-meal today.  At the end of the week, I like to clean out the fridge/pantry as much as possible, so meal combos can get a little random!  This glorious morning started out with a lovely bowl of KERF-style oats and some more gorgeous sunshine streaming in through the window.

1/3 cup rolled oats + 1tbsp. oat bran
water
1/2 banana
1/4 cup honey & oats granola
2 True North Almond Clusters crumbled
1/2 cup blackberries
1 tbsp. almond butter

Around 11am, I feasted on the first of several frequent meals.  This one was simple, but oh so good: Fage 0% Greek Yogurt with 1 cup of strawberries and an Easy Fig Scone.  The best part?  I crumbled the last half of the scone INTO the yogurt combo – soooo delish!  Eaten with a Diet Cherry Coke, perfection!

Early afternoon I needed a little perking up, so I delved into the 2nd mini-meal of the day: 1 cup of Kashi GoLean Crunch Honey Almond Flax and 1 cup of delicious, juicy mango!  Then after I had my daily cuppa Green Chai tea.  At around 4:00pm (start of the 1 hour countdown to the weekend!), I had my fave Cherry Pie Larabarand some crunchy carrots.

For dinner, I didn’t have much so while at the grocery store (picking up organic strawberries on sale, yessss!), I concocted a salad from the Kowalski’s salad bar:  mixed greens, spinach, beets (my fave!), broccoli, cherry tomatoes, carrots, cucumbers, red onion, chickpeas, golden raisins, sunflower seeds, a sprinkle of honey-roasted peanuts and Kraft Light Asian Sesame dressing.  I headed over after to work to babysit my little buddy Jackson and scarf down the salad with some lemonade!

I was still a bit hungry after the salad, of course! I found some Wheat Thins, dried cherries and more honey-roasted peanuts and threw them together into a pseudo-trail mix (including a small handful more honey-roasted peanuts – I couldn’t resist :)).  After getting home at 10:30pm, my tummy was a grumbling so I snagged a small Easy Fig Scone along with a cup of tea to tide me over to write this post.

Whew – what a week!  I am soooo excited for the weekend – if all goes according to plan, tomorrow should be a fabulous first outing to the St. Paul Farmer’s Market, followed by some errand running and ending with a 10-miler + dinner with one of my besties Ashley, who I haven’t seen in weeks!  Sunday, I shall honor thy mother (even though I won’t get to see her :(), catch up on the million things on my to-do list and start practicing my beach volleyball skills – our league starts Wednesday!

Otherwise, I’m really working on the blog, coming up with new ideas and trying to get everything just how I want it.  I realize the blog has been pretty food-centered so far, so next week I am going to try and spice it up with more workouts and fun life stuff.  Can’t tell what it is yet, but I think it should be good!

Good evening and good night!
