Summer Lovin’

Posted on

Verse of the Day:

“The unfolding of your words gives light; it gives understanding to the simple.”

– Psalm 119:130

Breakfast was unexpectedly a total treat.  You’d be amazed what a little cinnamon mixed with oats can do for the texture of Peach Chobani 😉 

1/3 C. raw old fashioned oats & cinnamon sprinkled over 1 Peach Chobani

It reminded me of a chilled peach cobbler!  A great start to my morning at work, not to mention quick & convenient with barely any prep work which was only appropriate considering I didn’t even take the time to do some of the essential grooming steps due to time constraint.  But breakfast?  There’s ALWAYS time for breakfast 🙂

Lunch WAS prepared ahead of time.

All packed up in my Finlandia lunch box, I had a large veggie salad (a bed of spinach, sliced baby peppers, cherry tomatoes, carrots, snap peas, and cukes) drizzled with Leonardo Roberto’s balsamic vinegar (THE BEST)

I also packed 1/2 of this sandwich made with 2 slices of Manna Organic Bakery Sunny Sourdough bread, sliced turkey breast, 1 Sonoma Jack’s cheese wedge, some Sweet Jalapeno sauce from Bolani, spinach and 1 tomato slice.

Work.was.unbearably.slow.  Thankfully, I had some of my favorites to rescue me from boredom. 

Oh yeah, and I did some studying over my breaks.  Did I tell you?  I got the 2nd highest grade in the class on my last exam?  😀  My average is currently a 92ish.

When I got home, I had an exciting package awaiting me from AmazonArctic Zero!!!  I know what you’re thinking. 

This stuff is ridiculously expensive, but believe me it is so worth it.  I can eat a whole PINT of “ice cream” for just 128 calories and 16g protein, 0g fat. 

I can’t always afford it, but since I have been doing really well saving money on groceries, AND I just got my annual increase, I figured 1 splurge couldn’t hurt. 

Next up, I packed a picnic dinner for the boy & I.  I had another sand volleyball match at City Island so I packed up the other 1/2 of my sandwich from lunch,

made him a PB&J, packed a salad for us to share (drizzled in balsamic post picture),

and we hit the road. Same thanggg.  Sorry for the meal repeat.  I’m craving turkey for some reason?

Before I knew it, game time rolled around and we lost YET again.  It was fun, though, and I love my team. 

Afterward, we played pick up for awhile and the boyy joined in!  Soon a storm rolled in, and we were ready to peace out.  We got home around 8:40PM, after driving through the insanity of some hard, hard rains.

I whipped up two protein shakes with my Optimum Nutrition Mint Chocolate.

1/2 C. 1% fat free milk, 1 scant scoop protein powder, & ice

We played DICE for about an hour with the FF lil’ sis, and he left for home at about 10:30PM.  I was exhausted!  Before bed, I had some a peach and some baby carrots dipped in some Naturally More.

Three Question Thursday:

1.  What is your favorite summertime sport? I’d have to go with sand volleyball!  Although I love basketball as well.

2.  Do you let yourself feel guilty about expensive food purchases? I do for a little while, but then I realize, it’s for a good cause!  Lots of things that people spend money on are useless, but nutritious food is at least promoting health, right?!

3.  What’s the most money you’ve spent on a food product? I think these things are the most expensive that I’ve bought.  Nut butters are pricey too, but $46 for 6 pints of ice cream is a little extreme, I suppose? Haha.

XOXO.

  4. I don’t feel guilty about expensive food purchases, as long as they are healthy. I rarely feel guilty about any purchases if it’s my money I feel like I can spend it where I’d like.
    My favorite summer sport is wakeboarding – if that counts : )

I made a new Dulce De Leche Ice Cream that was so good, I honestly nearly died and went to heaven! I also took 46 pictures of it with my cell phone! I have to post the recipe asap.
