I received some REALLY GOOD NEWS yesterday!! I am sorry, but I can’t go into details here (just don’t think its good to talk at this point on such a public space) but you guys can use your imaginations. 🙂 I promise when I can talk more about it, I will!
Yesterday I was running out the door to work and grabbed the quickest thing I could from my freezer:
This Amy’s meal was really good! The tamale had great flavor and was nice and cheesy and the rice and beans had a yummy tomato- spice to them.
I chopped up half an avocado and ate it with the beans and rice. It was the perfect thing to bulk up the meal and bring in some healthy fats.
A lovely bite…
When I got home, I had a Baby Bell cheese:
And a pretty lame (and not well photographed dinner): a whole wheat wrap filled with salad, garbanzos, and melted goat cheese.
With some cheese-its on the side. Lame, I know. And not enough calories for the day, especially because I had a good workout in the morning. I just wasn’t feeling like eating much.
Needless to say, I woke up this morning feeling HUNGRY. My stomach felt empty and I needed something hearty and filling.
I made a yummy and quick plate of 2 scrambled eggs, chopped tomato, and a sprinkle of feta. I had two slices of whole wheat toast with reduced fat cream cheese smeared on top. It was awesome!
I love me some ketchup and hot sauce! And I always eat my eggs on top of toast like an open face sandwich. SO good!
I was really hungry mid-morning (probably from not eating enough yesterday) so I snacked on some Pop Chips while I taught a class. When I got home from work for the afternoon, I had a weird combo for lunch. But, it was really good, I swear!
I heated some garbanzos and brown rice that we made earlier in the week, and I wanted something creamy to go on top. I didn’t have sour cream or yogurt, but I did see cottage cheese in the fridge, so I tried that.
I mixed it all together and seasoned it with salt and pepper. It was really tasty! And I was happy with how much protein and fiber this vegetarian meal had.
For some vitamins and color, I had half a red pepper and some baby carrots on the side.
I went back for 2 “healthy cookies”… it’s that time again and I am craving chocolate!
I hope to hit the gym this afternoon for a good workout before I head back to work for the night. I’m taking the day off of work tomorrow to go up to New Haven for some interviews/ meetings and to see my little sister’s play tomorrow night. Loren and I are spending the night up there and I am really excited. I love getting out of the city and I love my little sis even more. I’m so proud of her and really excited to see the play (she produced/ put it together)!
See you later for some more comida!
