My mom texted to check on me after I didn’t post last night, but I promise I wasn’t snowed in/buried alive/on a bender – I’ve just been busy! Monday wasn’t quite as crazy as Sunday, but I am getting this post up early before night class so I have some tiny chance of painting my nails this evening. If I miss another holiday colors polish opportunity I will be so sad.
Sunday I ate this Tandoor Chef Vegetable Pad Thai for breakfast.
Not traditional “morning food,” but one of the best frozen entrées ever. It is a little calorie-dense at 490kcal a package, but the texture and flavor makes it taste like a splurge and not a sad frozen dinner.
I tried to take a cup of my latest impulse purchase to work with me, but ended up passing Adam my glass after one sip.
I love Silk’s almond milks but I think I am just not a soy milk girl; this had such a strong aftertaste to me. Thankfully the husband enjoys it so our carton won’t go to waste.
Adam and Webster picked me up from work, and we got this box from the co-op hot bar on the way home.
Vegan “cheesy” pasta and 3 stuffed grape leaves, shared 70-30 my favor.
We also split this Opal apple.
It is fun to try new varieties, but we probably won’t get this one again for the increased price versus “regular” apples.
I was tired from work, and really didn’t want to go to the gym, so I bribed myself with this Justin’s Chocolate Almond Butter packet.
That stuff is just chocolate frosting, I swear!
At the gym, I finished my first week of CT10k workouts. 4 minutes walking/1 minute running, x 8. Except I shouldn’t listen to Fiona Apple while I run because I’m obsessed; I ended up running for 10 minutes straight in the middle of my workout.
Dinner was all over the place, but the components were all good. A handful of baby carrots.
Pizza crusts stolen from the husband.
Who knew I loved currants? They definitely helped break up the intensity of the bar.
Finally, we made tasty smoothies.
Thai young coconut, frozen banana, frozen blueberries, and a bit of brown sugar.
Adam has recently decided that he is obsessed with Thai young coconuts, so expect to see more of these. Especially since our coconut was so exciting – it was pink!
Apparently it’s a common variation relating to the varied levels of phenol found in the coconuts.
Today I grabbed a Coconut Chocolate Chip Clif Bar for breakfast.
I attended a workshop on TPN in the morning so I got to eat in the hospital rather than my car, which was nice.
Lunch was another tasty black-eyed pea salad.
Black eyed peas with bread and butter corn, green pepper, smoked almonds, and green Tabasco. I made a big batch so my lunch for the next two days is already packed.
With a serving of the dark chocolate for dessert.
And when I got home I ate a pear.
I took care of a few things for school when I got home from the hospital, and sudddenly I was starving.
Dinner was pretty lame, but I’m in a hurry trying to get to school so I can finish some reading before class.
And lame doesn’t mean it didn’t taste good!
A box of Health is Wealth Asian Spring Rolls,
with a dipping sauce of chunky peanut butter and Smart Balance Light.
