This morning, breakfast was a peanut pasted oatcake and I was pretty pleased with it. I’m already contemplating when I should order my next batch of peanut flour. I could seriously incorporate it into every meal if I wasn’t afraid of running out too soon.
(1/3 C. oats, sugar-free vanilla Torani, cinnamon, 1 egg white, splash of almond milk, peanut paste: 1/4 C. peanut flour + sugar free syrup & water to thin)
The sidewalks on the way to work were a complete sheet of ice. A kind man that walked in around the same time I did asked to escort me to my building to make sure I got there safely.
I found out through basic conversation that he has two twin (adorablee!) girls and that he works for Labor & Industry, just across the street from me. Later in the morning, he emailed me with a picture of his little ones!
Something else new in my world is this Vera Bradley purse & wallet.
Do you like the print?
Anyway, lunch came around 12ish…maybe a little bit after.
(L-R: Arnold 10 grain bread with a smear of peanut flour paste & sugar free strawberry jam, a peanut paste ramekin with baby carrots for dipping, and a steamed kale and red pepper salad with a drizzle of fat-free Annie’s mango dressing)
Don’t mind the desk objects that might be a little distracting. My desk is packed full, so when I eat lunch, there isn’t much room for dining.
After work and before practice, I had my very last individually wrapped Granola Gourment bar that company sent me to try out. I’ve got to admit, this was my least favorite flavor, but it certainly gave me a nice energy boost to fuel me through a gym workout and then practice.
I forgot to bring my heart rate monitor, so I have no clue how many calories I burned, but I’d imagine it was in the 600 range.
(2/3 C. frozen spinach, 1/2 C. almond breeze, 1/2 scoop vanilla whey protein powder, 3 ice cubes)
When I got home, I whipped up a protein shake and warmed some leftover cabbage/kale soup for dinner.
Sorry for the repeat photo. I didn’t have much time last night, since D was coming over and I wanted to get a shower beforehand!
We watched SALT last night with Angelina Jolie.
It was pretty decent! Lots of twists and turns in the plot. I’m pretty sure D had it figured out, though 😉 I got to bed around 12PM when I got the text that D had made it home safely.
I had a mug full of chocolate & banana nut mixed cheerios with almond milk before bed, too. No photo documentation needed. If you want to know what it looks like, here you go.
