More of the same today. I'm sorry I'm a creature of habit... I know that makes following my blogs a little boring from time to time. Breakfast was a TEENY bit different. I used vanilla yogurt on my waffles because we were out of Greek and cottage cheese. It was an okay substitute but it will not be my go-to. I'm excited to try the Fage yogurt on crepes... or maybe even regular pancakes. I think I will be making those soon. Can you tell I'm trying to like blueberries? I think they're great in muffins, coffee cakes, even smoothies, but on their own, I could do without. But, with all their propsed benefits (plus I like the color), I decided to force feed myself.
Lunch was more of the same. I won't even tell you in hopes you can guess what this is!
I forgot a picture of my mid-afternoon snack but it was a Kashi Crunchy bar with a tablespoon of creamy peanutbutter. Mmm... what a good choice! (Plus some Dunkin Coffee... I caved.) Alex visited a few weeks ago and we found what may be the best Dunkin ever. I get it every so often and it's so worth it. Although, I only like it when I use my own creamer. For some reason, I don't like theirs--weird, I know.
I got home from work at around 7:25 and was absolutely starving! Susie tried to have dinner ready by the time I got there but because of a recipe disappearing on the web, she had to improvise. I couldn't wait to eat so I had some Fage Greek Yogurt with honey and some flax seeds. It kept my growling stomach at bay until the main event.
Dinner was fantastic. I found this recipe on the Cooking Light website. It's a creamy rich tasting pasta dish which even has BACON in it but it's way more decadant than it's nutritional value would seem. We had asparagus on the side, so it's so far so good for eating healthy even with the parents back from vaca. I almost saved some for lunch but decided it's a better dinner than lunch...maybe this weekend?
I finally took a picture of my ice cream! Be happy! I love this stuff-- it makes staying on track during the day do able. If you can't tell... and if you haven't been reading, I'll say it again: I'M A CREATURE OF HABIT. I like routine, schedule, and knowning what's coming next. In this regard, I'm a great diet planner... but I don't like it when things throw me off. I've been good recently. Tonight we're trying a balsamic chicken recipe which looks really good... so I'll look to that. Oh, and my 7:00 a.m. coffee in approximately 30 minutes and 20 seconds!
