A New Spin On Leftovers

February 23, 2009 at 8:10 pm 11 comments

Whew Monday is over!  Today was a pretty good day, I’m feeling much better today.  I would say I’m 90% back to good health.  My work day flew right before, before I knew it the day was over and it was time to go home.  Tomorrow is not going to be a fun day I’m starting a new project and I pretty much have 2 days to get it all done.  Should make tomorrow go by quickly as well, but it is going to be so hectic!  Hope you all had a fabulous Monday!

Chobani was on sale at Stop and Shop 10 for 10 so of course I stocked up.  I feel like it’s been a while so I grabbed a peach one for breakfast today.  I also restocked my Bear Naked Peak Protein Granola so I was able to have a protein filled breakfast.

You can see my desk was a complete disaster today with all the papers surrounding my breakfast.  My desk is usually super neat but I let all the papers pile up around me today.  Hopefully after this quick project is over my desk will be back to my normal organized work space.

Lunch today I had a serving of Pacific Natural Foods Organic Creamy Tomato soup.  I enjoyed it a lot, but I’ve never been a big fan of tomato soup, I would get this again just for ease, but it’s hardly something I would crave.

On the side I had 15 kashi crackers, but only ate 10 of them.  I put the other 5 back in the box for another day.

After this lunch I was satisfied for a long time but around 3 I got hungry again.  I snacked on 3/4 of a banana with pb sandwiched in the middle.

I love this snack it is so filling and it does an awesome job of fueling a workout or keeping me from snacking all afternoon at work.  It gets the job done for serious. Yes, I just said for serious, it’s something I’ve been made fun of since high school, it’s something I say though I know it’s not good English though.

For dinner tonight I was craving the rest of my taco meat from yesterday.  But for the sake of the blog, I knew tacos again would be so boring so I re-created tacos with a new twist.  Taco Pizza was born!

It was a whole wheat boboli crust, 2.5 ounces of taco meat, 2 tablespoons of salsa, 2 sweet mini peppers diced,  and a little more then an ounce of a low fat mexican blend cheese.  I haven’t used VeggieGirl’s “Holy Yum” on this blog yet, but for real guys, HOLY YUM!


Dare I say this was better then regular tacos.  After I finished eating I thought of one thing that would have made it better.  Shredded lettuce on top once it was out of the oven.  Seriously that would have been out of this world!  Please if you find yourself with taco leftovers, make this pizza, you will NOT regret it!

After dinner I was contemplating going to the gym.  I know I’m probably not going to be able to go tomorrow because I have a doctors appointment and then a dinner date with my friend Michelle.  But it’s cold out there!  So instead I looked on demand and found a yoga sculpt program.  I’ve never really done yoga, I mean sure on the Wii Fit, which totally doesn’t count.  After I set it up and the show started I found out it was level intermediate to advanced.  I didn’t feel like looking for a new one so I did the best I could, I can’t believe how much work it was!  Yoga is something I will totally do again.


P.S. Head on over to Hangry Pants where Heather and Mark are giving away a box of Zoe’s Granola!
