Work was getting a little overwhelming after yesterday, but I woke today with a much needed positive outlook — and it paid off, because my Friday was great! The kids were on it, I was patient, AND very well fed!
B-fast was oats. It may be lame, but I had never once thought to add toppings to my oats before I started reading food blogs. So I must thank Whitney for having an amazing blog (and blogroll) that got me reading others.
These oats were topped with: mashed banana mixed with almond butter, chopped almonds, pumpkin seeds, and crasins! Crazy good!
‘Tis true, oats are prettier pre-stirred.
I had a lot of veggies and fruit that I needed to use up before the weekend grocery shopping trip, so my snacks and lunch are a reflection of this. But awesome and refreshing nonetheless.
Snack 1: yellow bell pepper and cucumber slices. I was running short on time and literally just chopped hunks of the cucumber off and threw them in some foil — yes, yes, I’m terrible, I know. We need some small tupperware.
LUNCH! Was amaz-a-balls! Whole wheat wrap with roasted red pepper hummus, the other half of the yellow pepper, cherry tomatoes, kalamata olives, the rest of the cucumber and spinach on the top — the picture was taken before I added the spinach because I wanted you to see the gorgeous veggies!
Around 12:45 my dear friend Kirsten brought me half a choco-doughnut! Does she know me, or what?
And after the kiddos were gone, the chairs were put up, and I began to tackle the giant pile of paperwork in front of me I had the last banana of the bunch with some almond butter.
Friday = Chinese from Lee’s Garden. As per-ususal I got steamed broc. with steamed shrimp and garlic sauce. Kellen asked me what “egg drop wonton soup” was. I imagined that it was egg drop soup with wontons in it. Well, it didn’t sound too good to him, but it had certainly peaked my interest. So I had that too.
Fin. Happy weekend!
