I did not end up watching tv last night but I didn’t go to bed for hours either. I also did not eat my coconut butter snack.
Instead I had it for breakfast.
The Artisana Cacao Bliss packet was delicious! The taste and texture reminded me of crumbly chocolate frosting. Plus it was super filling. I have two more of the packets and I’m very much looking forward to them. And yes, that is a soda in the back of the picture; breakfast didn’t happen until near noon. As it always goes the day after a migraine, my eats were all over the place today.
I got up late in a daze, made some important school calls, and then rushed out of the house to run time-sensitive errands. By the time I made my way to Wegman’s it was after 4:00 and I was starving. Hot bar to the rescue.
Asian wokery veggies, watermelon, and pineapple.
A little bit of sweet and sour pineapple chili chicken plus a Thai chicken spring roll.
And I snagged these adorable cupcake gummies from the bulk bins.
They were like little vanilla-berry pillows.
Dinner round 1 was a taco salad.
A romaine base topped with chopped green pepper, black beans, a handful of crushed Beanitos, chopped Cabot 50% light sharp cheddar, and a big scoop of Wegman’s pineapple salsa.
I gave my bowl a 30 second nuke in the microwave a few bites in and it made it even better. I think I prefer Wegman’s version of the pineapple salsa to Newman’s Own’s; the sweetness and the spice are both a little less intense.
Dinner round 2 was lightened up chips and dip.
2 servings of ruffles,
and a bowl of Fresh Fage French Onion Dip.
I’ve been craving french onion dip (with freshly caramelized onions!) for days so I decided to try my hand a lighter version. I included the recipe for the dip at the bottom of this post. It was really delicious!
Dessert was a mini pack of strawberry-filled koala cookies and a serving of Skinny Cow Peanut Butter Cream Filled Chocolates.
Both were good, but I have got to cut back on the sugar. I have been soooooo hungry this week and it’s driving me crazy.
Adam has been out-of-town the past few days and he gets back tonight = yay!!!!! We have two fun days planned this weekend and I can’t wait.
Fresh Fage French Onion Dip, serves 1-2 (Or more, if you’re into smaller – i.e. 2-3 Tbsp – servings. For 1-2 people this recipe makes a large enough bowl of dip to really scoop your chips into.)
- 1 Tbsp butter
- 1 Tbsp evoo
- 1 medium sweet onion, roughly chopped
- 1/4 tsp plus 1 large pinch salt
- 7 oz container 2% Plain Fage Total yogurt
- 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
- 1 tsp onion powder
- Place a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add butter and oil to heated pan. When butter is completely melted, stir in the onion and pinch of salt. Cook 5 – 7 minutes until onions caramelize, stirring occasionally. Remove caramelized onions from heat and let cool for 1 – 3 minutes before adding to yogurt.
- Place yogurt in a large bowl. Add onions, Worcestershire, onion powder, and remaining salt and stir until well-combined. Serve with carrot sticks or ruffled chips.
