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.
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.
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.
