Been living in Frozen Town and I didn’t leave the house all weekend. I stayed in where it’s warm and I ate up all my food. Woke this morning with nothing in the house to pack up and take to work. So, I winged it all day today. And I’d say I did pretty good.
The girls got coffee and like I said, Frozen Town – today begged for a hot drink in my hands. I have been Espresso-free for 15 days (Wow!) but I am enjoying tea. So I chose Earl Grey with steamed Soy. For breakfast, I heated up some Yukon Golds and a Sweet Potato. I keep potatoes in my desk at the office – always prepared. I also keep frozen veggies in the freezer but I need to re-stock.
For lunch, I picked up a Build Your Own Salad from Doc Greens. In my chopped salad was: Field Greens, Cucumber, Tomato, Shredded Carrot, Black Beans and Corn Salsa. After I placed my order, I realized they now serve Quinoa on the Salad Bar. I know what I’m getting next time! I skipped the dressing and the pita bread they give you, and added a few of my own beans for more protein and satiation.
This afternoon I got the muchies!! I wanted something crunchy. I had potatoes and beans on me and that’s it. But I didn’t want them. Too soft. I wanted to crunch down on something. I came *this close* to snagging a bag of trail mix. There isn’t inherently anything wrong with trail mix, but the packaged options at the Mini Mart at my office are all roasted and salted and contain, gasp, m&m’s – which I would have totally been ok with today. Additionally, nuts are one of my main trigger foods. Once I start, I can’t stop. Like I said, *this close* however, something in that moment shifted…thank you, Universe!…and I chose a Red Delicious Apple. Crunchy, Sweet and Hydrating. It was perfect. Also, have you heard Apples provide more energy than Caffeine? Super interesting, right?
Grocery shopping in 15 degree weather just wasn’t happening tonight, so I called in an order for sushi. Edamame can be prepared without the salt. Just ask! I am learning so many things. I had avocado roll, asparagus cucumber avocado roll, and mango roll.
The snackies continued into the night and I made a sweet treat for after dinner. I mixed together Oats, Almond Butter, Flax Seed, Maple Syrup, Vanilla, Cacao Powder, Maca Powder, Raisins and Cinnamon and made little Energy Bites. My goal is to discover my body’s natural weight, so I won’t be making sweet treats very often.
I’m looking forward to seeing how my What I Ate Today posts evolve over time.
