Whole Foods to the Rescue
I can’t express how happy I am that tomorrow is Friday. This week has really lagged and I’m so excited to have the weekend coming up. I have absolutely no plans for the whole weekend, and I couldn’t be happier. Like most of you, the past month has been full of holiday parties, and family gatherings, but this is my first weekend where I have absolutely no commitments! The only thing on my to-do list is to celebrate our 4 year anniversary on Sunday, but we’re thinking of keeping it pretty low key. I can do (or not do) whatever I want.
Todays eats were all really good and all convenient which is just what I need after such a busy week.
Breakfast was the usual. But good news! This was my last chobani in the fridge (for this week) and I purposely didn’t buy any so I have to come up with something different. I still have no idea what it will be but it’ll be a nice change regardless.
I had 2 prunes on the side and mixed in some Bear Naked Peak Protein Granola . With all the protein and fiber in this meal, it did a great job of holding me over until lunch time.
For lunch I brought a new soup to try, Health Valley Organic Minestrone.
It was good (a little bland) but I would probably buy it again. The can said it was 2 servings but because of my lack of other things for lunch I ate 3/4 of the can.
And of course some fruit.
2 clemintines. I can’t get enough right now, I think with the colds going around the office it’s probably a good thing I’m eating these like crazy.
Now I’m not a big fan of sweets. I don’t like cake (I know, I know I’m weird), I don’t really enjoy cookies, and I generally don’t eat chocolate. But a co-worker had my weakness today. Godiva Dark Chocolate! Dark chocolate is my one sweet vice. Sure I’ll eat cookies on occasion but I’m more of a sucker for fried, salty, and cheesy foods.
My blurry weakness! I savored every tiny bite I took of this. She has a whole box! I’m hoping she won’t be offering me any more in the days to come.
My lunch didn’t stay with me very long I knew I should have bulked it up a little more. But I did have a 100 calorie bag of popcorn that I popped and enjoyed.
It’s a great snack to have on hand if you’re a volume eater.
I had no clue what I wanted fo dinner. This weekend I need to meal plan and shop ahead of time so this doesn’t become a weekly thing. After my chiropractor’s appointment today, Andrew and I were off to Whole Foods to fill up some to-go boxes from the salad bar.
We went to my parents house to eat with them. I told my parents all about the blog last night, and I have to say they were really supportive and excited over the whole thing. So Hi Mom and Dad!!
What a mess! I’m going to try to remember everything that’s in here:
- red onions
- spring mix
- medium hot frest salsa
- baked tofu
- some quina salad but I can’t rememeber which kind I wound up getting
- An edamame and brown rice salad
- a meatball
- a couple pieces or rotissere chicken
- and a mini pita
I’m sure there were other things as well but I can’t remember. This was my first time trying baked tofu. I hated it! I won’t be trying that again anytime soon. I gave it to my dog, who wouldn’t even go near it either.
Here’s my dog, Bailey Beagle ignoring the tofu.
Super blurry pic. My dog was a rescue and we assume she was abused before we got her because she’s so easily scared. She is terrifed of the flash on cameras, and because she associates the flash with the camera she starts to freak as soon as she sees one. So before I could get a decent picture of her witht he flash turned off, she ran out of the room.
Well I’m off to lay down and read. I hope everyone has a great night, and a fast paced Friday. We’re almost to the weekend!!
