Good morning! Thanks for all of your well-wishes about my wrist–it’s not feeling all that better but I am going to see a PT today who specializes in hand and wrist–so here’s to hoping! Loren, being the kind boyfriend that he is (editor’s note: she really said this, I didn’t make it up!) actually helped me type up this post last night.
Alright, back back to the important stuff: FOOD!! I started yesterday with a 35 min bike at the gym. When I got home, I was looking for something filling but light to refuel. We don’t have a lot of groceries right now, and since we are heading out of town on Saturday, I’m trying to consume what we have (Anyone have any great recipes for brussel sprouts, tofu, and orange juice?!?). I decided to throw together a bowl of staples: some TJ’s raisin bran cereal, trail mix, dried cranberries, a scoop of peanut butter, and some almond milk.
Not as much fruit as I normally like, but the dried grapes and cranberries count, right?
While making breakfast, I also threw together a few things for lunch that needed to be eaten: A TJ’s Indian channa masala, a string cheese, a whole wheat wrap, and some celery.
I was going to have the apple for snack, but I ended up coming home a little early, so I made a snack at home. It looked a lot like breakfast!
A bowl of TJ’s lowfat raspberry yogurt with a sprinkle of raisin bran, dried cranberries, and a few chocolate chips.
Dinner was a random mix of foods (what was left in my fridge). I made a “pizza” using the last piece of garlic nan, topped with marinara sauce, goat and feta cheese, and some banana peppers.
I also had an apple, a handful of wasabi peas, and some pistachios (unpictured).
And lots of tea.
Simple dinner=easy clean up.
P.S. Look at what I picked up at the bookstore this weekend!
I can’t wait to read it! It includes lots of vignettes and short stories from all sorts of food writing from 2009. I’m currently reading “Push” by Sapphire (I wanted to read it before I saw the movie “Precious”), so I think the food book will be a happy pick-me-up after a depressing but important read.
Have a great day!
