Verse of the day:
“Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise; give thanks to Him and praise his name. For the LORD is good and his love endures forever; His faithfulness continues through all generations.”
– Psalm 100:4-5
Breakfastt was bittersweet today. RIP Nuttzo.
1/4 C. old fashioned oats, 1/2 diced gala apple, 1/2 C. unsweet almond breeze, 1/2 C. water poured into an empty Nuttzo jar and topped with some Udi’s Gluten-free Vanilla granola with an Artisana Raw Almond Butter spoon
I had a little memorial service for my jar on the way to work this morning. With each “mmmm” and “ahhh“, I remembered a great time I had with Nuttzo 🙂
Lunch was a packed random selection courtesy of Tasty Bite!
Okay, this may not look like much, but boy did it hit the spot. It was a comforting meal that I could eat again and again. Visually appealing? Probably not…unless you enjoy the l0ok of a newborn’s diaper…
I used a little bit of Minute Brown Rice as a base layer, some pinto beans, canned green beans, and Kasmir Spinach (curried spinach lightly sauteed with paneer cheese cubes) with some sweet pea sprinkles 🙂
This kept me full for awhilee. To be honest, I wasn’t that hungry when I got off work at 4PM, but I knew I needed a snack because I had a long workout ahead.
Orange you glad I didn’t say banana?
I also had a coupla pitted dates on the commute to the gym. I haven’t mentioned this yet, but yesterday was my first day at my new job!
My previous co-workers took me to lunch on Friday and gave me this sweet “congrats” gift on my promotion.
Isn’t it purty?
Anywho, the reason why I brought it up, is because I’m in a new bldg. downtown, which requires a nice long walk in the morning due to inefficient parking situations.
I forgot to take a photo of my HR monitor, but after my gym sesh and practice, I had burned OVER 1100 calories! Nuttzooo, right? 🙂
No worries, I had some goodies in my car to keep my belly happy for dinner.
This little egg puff (1 egg+1 white) should be awarded the ugliest picture award for sure. It also had a nice dollop of light Ragu in there.
Tomato, yellow pepper, and cucumber salad with apple cider vinegar and sugar-free raspberry syrup!
Almond butter & jelly sammie on 1 slice Fitness bread, halved.
And just for good measure, another container of raw veggies drizzled in Light Ragu in a waning container of Cedar’s Garlic Lover’s Hummus
Broccoli, carrots, and cauliflower.
After class, when I got home you better believe I got right down to dessert.
Bourbon vanilla Tera’s whey protein shake with almond breeze and Fiber select cereal. It was like a graham cracker milk shake!! ❤
Turkey day is just around the corner! What special dish are you most looking forward to?
