I don’t know what my deal is but lately I’ve been so freaking hungry. Yesterday I was uncomfortable with hunger all day long. And I wasn’t in a dessert mood at all but we don’t have much food in the house and I ended up eating sweets all afternoon. Ugh.
I did do my best to make a healthy, filling lunch.
I sautéed ~ 1 cup of sliced okra in 1/2 Tbsp butter and a pinch of salt. Meanwhile I whisked together 2 large eggs, 1/2 cup 2% cottage cheese, and 2 oz of Cabot’s 50% reduced-fat sharp cheddar. Then I scrambled my mixture in with the okra.
I didn’t know how the cottage cheese would turn out in the eggs but I ended up loving it. The end result wasn’t watery at all, just super creamy and cheesy. I now know that cottage cheese is a tasty way to add more volume and protein to my eggs.
But sadly my filling lunch wasn’t filling at all. Nothing is filling when your stomach is being a beast. I also had …
A spoonful of cookie butter, x2.
A packet of Gushers.
A Magnum Double Caramel Ice Cream Bar.
And the last ~1/2 serving of Butterfingers Bites.
Not gonna lie, I was still hungry after all that too. It was funny because I watched “Kitchen Nightmares” all afternoon and that show is a total appetite killer!
I ended up not even eating dinner because I left the house on a last-minute invite and didn’t get home until past Adam’s bedtime. A classmate’s restaurant was running a booth at a local wine event and I volunteered to help out.
I got to chat with all sorts of people and it was a lot of fun. Plus, I got a small plate of cookies and two tastes of wine out of the deal.
And my friend and I got our picture on a big local website.
I need to make some uglier friends!
My plans for today do include lunch with Holly this afternoon, should include cleaning, and must include catching up on the “Grey’s” and “Private Practice” finales.
Do you ever have insatiable bouts of hunger? And more importantly – do you say “hungry mungry?”
