Happy Wednesday all!
Let’s get the foodie fun started.
This morning started bright and early, I woke up at 5 to attend spin class. When I arrived no employees showed up at the gym to open up. There were about 20 of us just waiting outside for an employee to show up. A little frustrating, but at 6 someone finally came in.
I tried not getting too annoyed, but its hard not to when you are up at 5… and technically you didn’t have to be;)
Even though it was a late start, spin was still awesome! I’ve been using spin as my second “therapy” these days.
I came home and was super hungry so made my way right to my bowl of overnight pumpkin buckwheat.
1/3 cup buckwheat cereal, 1/2 cup pumpkin, 1/2 cup egg whites, 2 teaspoons chia seeds, 1 teaspoon hemp seeds, stevia, cinnamon, topped with a few blueberries and cashew butter.
Drinks happened a little while later. If only it was a glass of wine, however it only seemed appropriate that at 10 in the morning it was coffee instead.
Starbucks once again, with a little sprinkling of pumpkin pie spice for a Fall touch.
I don’t know what has happened, but I’m starting to really hate the taste of eggs again. I love my egg whites, but for some reason the yolk thing is really starting to creep my taste buds out.
This seems to happen time and time again. I love eggs, then I get burnt out and hate them. I guess I’m in the hate phase now! Too bad.
Lunch included my last attempt to re-like eggs. Major fail.
2 pieces toasted ezekiel, half topped with sunflower butter, the other half with an egg. And a side of roasted zucchini slices and broccoli slaw with avocado in a shot glass.
After a [finally] successful grocery store trip (things were sold old like crazy last time I attempted to grocery shop), I came home and assembled a delicious snack.
I topped this concoction with a little cinnamon “sugar” (made with a pinch of cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice and stevia), which made it extra special.
Coconut Protein Pudding was on the menu.
- 3/4 cup pumpkin puree
- 3 tablespoons peanut flour
- 2 tablespoons coconut flour
- 1/2 tablespoon coconut oil
- a dash of almond milk (if needed)
I’ve been trying to catch up on e-mails and some work from home today. Also some must needed laundry. When are they going to come along with an invention that can do all that folding for me?
Then maybe I’d actually like doing laundry a little more. Everyone agreed?
Later, I remembered I was supposed to get my blood taken, so had to do that. Ick, okay this might actually be worse than laundry. Not fun at all.
I got home and was pretty hungry, so just heated up some leftovers I had in the fridge.
I’m now sipping on some pumpkin chai tea, while awaiting New Girl and the Mindy Project to come on.
Then have plans to dig into my late night snack.
Has anyone seen the Mindy Project yet? I love it so far.
Have you found any new excellent foodie items recently?
Do you go through periods where you love a food, then hate it?
