Considering that there’s still issues with our computers at work, the day moved along pretty fast. Just the way I like Monday’s to go! My breakfast had an odd mix of ingredients, but the managed to all come together into a tasty dish…
1 cup coffee
1/3 cup Quaker oats
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
Enjoy Life Foods Mountain mix trail mix
This was a whole lot of yumminess!
I got tied up away from my desk for most of the morning so missed my morning snack. I grabbed a handful of these grapes on my way to the gym;
Delicious, but not really enough fuel and I sure felt that on my run. The last 15 minutes felt REALLY long! And to boot, I washed the strap to my HRM and forgot it at home so no stats. Ah, well. I know I ran for 45 minutes and went 4.6 miles. Pretty standard stuff.
Lunch was a great fresh tasting wrap. I stuffed a flatout with pepper jack cheese, red bella pepper, romaine lettuce, fig balsamic dressing and chicken from last night’s beer butt chicken;
The remainder of the grapes followed this.
It was just DD and I for dinner as DS was on the ice from 4:30-5:50. Before I got started I folded some laundry, tended to the cat litter and cleaned up some dishes in the sink. I felt calmer and ready to cook after that! :D I had decided earlier today to try a recipe for a delicious sounding soup. It’s called Curried Red Lentil Soup with Chickpeas & Quinoa.
As you can see I added a dollop of yogurt to the top. I actually used goat’s milk yogurt which I have never tried before and was really impressed with it! This is the brand I used;
It was thicker than regular yogurt and more tart. I’ll be buying this again for sure. All in all this supper was awesome.
How good does that look?! There may also have been some dark chocolate covered coffee beans while typing out this post!!
I can’t believe it’s already 8pm! One of the Mom’s from hockey sent my hubby home with some homemade, sugar free chocolate pudding to try. I hear it’s made with dates…you just know I’m off to try it out! I’ll post about it tomorrow along with a photo.
