Breakfast was the usual: banana wheatberry oatmeal. This time made with unsweetened chocolate almond milk as well as skim. This made it extra creamy and gave it a really nice hint of chocolate.
Unfortunately, even with my magical wheatberries, my stomach wouldn't stop growling all day. Here's my theory: When I exercise first thing in the morning on an empty stomach (like today) and then eat breakfast, I am always starving the entire day. Even right now, at 10pm after a full day of eating, I still feel like a bottomless pit. If, on the other hand I eat, wait, then exercise, I'm fine. Unfortunately scheduling doesn't always allow for this. Maybe I'll try eating something small (aka mini clif bars which were last week's obsession) and then having a little bit smaller of a breakfast afterward? We'll see.
After lots of errands, including a trip to the grocery store (the employees are starting to know me there, it's a little embarrassing. Especially with the people giving out samples. I hope they don't think that I just come in to get free food, which really is only party true...) Anyway, I was really hungry for lunch and for some reason eggs seemed really appealing (easy and quick!). I had some scrambled eggs with cheese, basil and cilantro flakes, alongside an Ezekial Cinnamon Raisin English muffin.
This was my first time trying these and OMG are they good! A million times better than silly Thomas EM. The flavor was great, the texture was great, and the raisins were super sweet and chewy. What a perfect, simple lunch.
And then I forgot to photograph the rest of my food. oops, I'm still new at this!
Snack was fruit and yogurt (back to the gala apples though--I need to go to WF and get more of those Jazz babies)
My tummy was grumbling all during yoga (it was a little embarassing when everyone is quiet and your stomach is yelling) and I was just not in the mood to go home and make an extravagant meal. So instead I made a 2nd trip to the grocery store (quick hello to Barb, the watermelon sample lady) and picked up a salad from the amazing salad bar. Seriously this thing is great, I'd say it's about 88% as good as the WF ones.
Dessert was my absolute favorite treat, but I'm a little ashamed to admit it. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE rich chocolate cake, fudgey brownies, and moist carrot cake, but save those for special occasions. For just an average night: Dairy Queen Soft Serve Vanilla. I don't know what it is, but that stuff just tastes so good to me. I'm sure it's filled with all sorts of artificial crap that I don't really want in my body but I just can't contain myself around it. If I'm feeling really adventurous I'll add on cookie dough pieces, but usually plain is perfect. I know I'm crazy, but it's an obsession.
