Manic Monday eats

Hope everyone’s having a great night!  I had a mildly productive evening since my last post — got some blog reading and e-mails done, fed the dog and the husband, and it will be time to take a shower shortly 🙂

Today’s breakfast was a little bit of a hodgepodge — an unpictured Clif bar (my fave, chocolate chip peanut crunch) and two cups of unsweetened peach applesauce:

Tasty!  The combo of fruit and carby protein-y goodness kept me full for most of the morning.

I grabbed lunch on my walk from the hospital to my office after chorus rehearsal (I’m in a holiday chorus at work — we have a concert next week for the patients): roast beef, mozzarella and lotsa grilled onions on a whole wheat wrap:

This was not as tasty as it looks — the meat was sorta overcooked and not very flavorful, and the cheese was kinda blah.  Plus, I had onion breath the rest of the day! 😦  BOO lunch.

I walked home from work and promptly took Barkley for a nice, long stroll around the neighborhood — we covered a little over a mile.  I had every intention of going to the gym tonight, but unfortunately my right hamstring had other plans.  I think I tweaked it during my race yesterday; there goes my streak of no running injuries!  I might ice it a little bit later before bed so I can workout pain-free tomorrow.

I snacked on a fruit smoothie when I came home:

This baby had a cup of frozen strawberries, a cup of frozen mango, half a cup of frozen blueberries, a scoop of Amazing Grass and a cup or so of water.  Pretty tasty!

An hour or two later I had a sandwich thin with 1 tbsp. maple peanut butter:

That’s How I Met Your Mother on in the background 🙂

Dinner was an AMAZING new find from Whole Foods — Lundberg Family Farms’ Creamy Parmesan Risotto!  We beefed ours up with some peas and parmesan cheese:

Yum yum YUM!  This was unbelievably good (not to mention filling)!!  I had about 3/4c. of the risotto and a cup of peas — the perfect serving size.  It even got the husband seal of approval:

🙂 I’m definitely picking up a few more boxes of this the next time I’m at Whole Foods!  Maybe next time I’ll try their porcini mushroom risotto

Alrighty, time to hop in the shower and head to bed — I’ve got an early morning tomorrow!  Night!

  1. I love when portion sizes are perfectly sized. I don’t like going back for more…especially if its moderately high in points to begin with.
