Who’s excited that one week from today it will be Thanksgiving eve?? I cannot contain my excitement- 3 days off of school, my little bro is coming into town, my whole family will be together, the Panthers play ON Thanksgiving, and I’ll hopefully catch up on some Zzzs.
Though apparently I am actually just excited for Christmas, as evidenced by this wanna be Santa Claus outfit I threw in my gym bag the other day.
Anybody else spend approximately .2 seconds picking out their clothes for a day?
So now… onto the eats from yesterday. Join the party over here!
Breakfast: Apple oatmeal (1/3 cup oatmeal, 1 medium diced apple, ~tbsp chia seeds, 2/3 cup unsweetened almond milk, 1/3 cup water, dash of cinnamon & salt) and sunflower butter. Black Coffee (and
dark milk chocolate… because desperate times y’all).
Snack: grapes + dark chocolate mystery candy
I have a love/hate relationship with the mixed chocolate boxes. I love the aspect of little surprises, but sometimes the surprises aren’t the best. I was hoping for the orange creme one, but it ended up being am unidentifiable nougat. Chocolate was good, filling only was tasted.
Lunch: Salmon salad sandwich (using this recipe), roasted carrots and turnips, slice of mozzarella cheese, and a diet ginger ale.
Snack: Iced coffee + unpictured soft and chewy granola bar
Have you guys tried these bottle Starbucks drinks? They were 2 for $3, so I bought the regular and vanilla version. The vanilla version was not my favorite. It tasted a little artificial. The regular version, however, was amazing.
And then things got ugly…. just kidding, it turned dark so my i-phone camera became a piece of junk. I promise the following images do not represent the level of tastiness.
Dinner: “Last minute pasta”: sauteed bell peppers, onions, garlic, and spinach, whole grain penne, cottage cheese, and mozzarella.
Sometimes I have big dreams for dinner. Sometimes those dreams get put in a little box for another day in favor of quick & easy.
Snack: peanut butter biscuit with sliced bananas and almond milk
Do yourself a favor and make those biscuits!!
Welp, it’s back to homework for me… I should know everything about chromium and insulin resistance by the end of the week.
How’s your week going?!
