Back to a typical day...

Morning everyone!  Hope you guys are feeling good todayJ 

So after our variety of fried foods from "Chicken Holiday" on Sunday night during the big game, I was suuuuuuuuupppppppperrrrrrrr ready to get "back on track" yesterday and tried to eat as 'cleanly' as possible.  Along with chugging down LOTS of water, I started my day with a bowl of steel cut oats mixed with pumpkin, chia seeds, maple syrup, nutmeg, cinnamon & a sprinkle of sliced almonds...
I had been having spinach smoothies, flaxseed pancakes and pineapple chobani yogurts for the past few weeks, so it had been a hot minute since oatmeal had been made in my house (after having it nearly DAILY through December!)  It was a nice reunionJ hahahahhahahaha

For lunch, I had went through a variety of leftovers from my fridge...but the only thing I REALLLLLLLLLLLLY wanted was SALAD: 
In the mix:
  • Spring blend lettuce drizzled with TJ's Pear Gorgonzola Dressing
  • Sliced strawberries
  • handful of chopped & toasted walnuts
  • sprinkle of crumbled goat cheese
Soooo refreshing & good.  Strawberries are OUT OF THIS WORLD right now!  I couldn't believe how sweet they were when I picked em up on sale at the grocery store this week.  I thought they were going to be 'winter waxy,' but NO...so good! 

For snack, in my attempt to quell my DAILY afternoon CHOCOLATE CRAVING I've had lately, I had picked these up at the store last week...
I figured I'd try ANYTHING to get a chocolate fix that was under 100 calories a serving.  They work pretty well.  *Emphasis on the 'pretty'...hahahahahhahahaha...sometimes you just need the REAL STUFFJ 

And dinner was a simple one.  Scott had some leftovers to take care of and since he does NOT like seafood, it was finally my chance to have something I had been craving for A WHILE: 
Less the 10 minutes + craving conquered = happy! J hahahaha

So I told you yesterday how, along with chocolate, CHEESE is my other favorite food group at the momentJ  I have a fun little recipe in store for tonight that takes a particularly guilty dish and makes it a litttle bit on the more healthy side.  I think you guys will like itJ  Stay tuned & have a good Tuesday!
