I’m heading back to school tomorrow (eek!) and I finally remember all my education on the importance of vegetables. Better late than never! All of my meals today included a veggie and two of them centered around bok choy (“bok to school,” hyuck, hyuck). Tomorrow I should probably work on including some fruits.
I did not get right into bed last night – and the neighbor’s dumbass friends ringing our doorbell at 4 am didn’t help my sleep either – but I did make it to yoga this morning. A 60 minute hot yoga class.
Breakfast made use of our bok choy gratin leftovers.
I scrambled a big serving into two eggs along with a few dashes of green Tabasco.
Hidden inside the eggs, this casserole actually wasn’t half bad.
Our afternoon entertainment was a walk through the Elmwood Art Festival.
We saw a few cool pieces but my main goal was lunch and I sadly didn’t see any food that appealed to me. I ended up eating at the hot bar when we went to the grocery.
Wok-seared veggies that were the best I’ve ever had from the hot bar,
two pieces of sweet and sour chicken,
and a few grapes for dessert.
I also ate this fun-size pack of Sugar Babies while we were out and about.
I nibbled on a half serving of Special K Savory Herb Crackers while I made dinner.
Dinner was homemade soup.

Also consumed, was an Honest Tea Honey Green Tea.
I’m down to the last bottle from my Honest Tea shipment and I definitly plan on buying more with my own money when they’re gone.
I’m hoping to paint my nails (both sets!) before bed; gotta go!
