8:00am: Coffee with creamer
9:30am: Breakfast- Whipped banana oatmeal with peanut butter
12:00pm: Lunch #1 - 3 mini pitas with hummus
Usually oatmeal holds me over for awhile, but yesterday I was READY to eat at high noon. Yesterday just turned out to be one of those days where I was hungry every time I turned around....
1:30pm: Lunch #2- Roasted tomato & red pepper soup with black beans
2:30pm: Snack - 5 chocolate covered almonds
I never EVER feel bad about eating a lot of snacks or small meals in a day as long as I'm GENUINELY hungry (and ya really gotta know yourself AND BE HONEST!!! to know whether you're actually hungry or just bored/craving what you just saw in the fridge/thirsty/etc) and yesterday I was hungry FOR SURE!
6:00pm: Dinner- Salad
Not SUPER inspired last night, but knew I wanted one thing: Maple-Almond Vinaigrette! So I whipped up the dressing and made a quick salad mix of:
- Sauteed leeks (in place of the sauteed shallots, since I had them on hand)
- Sliced Almonds
8:00pm: Dessert- 3 Candy Corn Cookies
Besides this picture, Katie & I also shared that 'third' one as a snackJ She loved these AND the salad yesterday. My kid has a new obsession with LETTUCE. NOT gonna complain about THAT!J
And no exercise yesterday. Figured I'd give my body a rest with this little cold.
Have a great Thursday!
