I just finished eating dinner about 10 minutes ago. I went on a long-ish run (6.5 miles) this evening, stretched, did some abs, showered, got dressed, threw together dinner, and finally sat down to eat at just about 8:00. Of course, I was famished!
I chugged a huge glass of water when I got home from my run, but by the time I was ready for dinner, I wanted something besides water to drink. Instead, I made myself a pomegranate-lemonade with a slice of lime. So yum!!! I have a feeling this is going to be the drink of the summer for me!
Pizza, salad, and pomegranate-lemonade from above...
For dessert, I had 2 pizzelles, one with a tsp of peanut butter spread on top.
I was super busy at work today, so I never had a chance to post lunch. Sorry! Quick recap...
Lunch was a ham and Buffalo sauce sandwich (again). I also had some broccoli florets with roasted red pepper hummus. I ate these while at an informal meeting right before lunch, so I never thought to snap a photo. I probably ate about a cup of broccoli and a few tablespoons of hummus.
After lunch, I ate a piece of leftover chocolatecake from yesterday's retirement party. I put my piece in a small cup, which is why this photo looks so strange. The cake was just as delicious as it was yesterday!
And finally, my afternoon snack was a container of Brown Cow maple-flavored yogurt with 1/2 cup of Kashi Go Lean cereal mixed in. It was my first time trying this flavor of Brown Cow yogurt, and I LOVE it!! It was creamy, sweet, and "natural" tasting. I hate when yogurt tastes "fake" and "chemically." I highly recommend this brand and flavor of yogurt!
From what I've read and my own experience, I don't think eating a late dinner effects weight gain/weight loss. The total number of calories that you consume throughout the day is important. I try to stick to my daily calorie allowance, and regardless of the time of day, I try to consume that same range of calories.
I love your photography, you're making me hungry! If only I could stop at one little slice of pizza! I did, however, stop at one small pulled pork sandwich for dinner. So that's why I'm hungry.... bananas and yogurt in my evening plans! Thanks for the gorgeous inspiration!
