You all are seriously amazing! Thank you for all the amazing comments on my last post regarding my mid-challenge updates on Body For Life. You each put so much thought into your responses and I cannot tell you how much I appreciate your words. I really LOVE that I have so many supporters and people who believe in me. It was nice to know that there are others who can relate to what I am feeling. Thanks for making my day!
Ok, enough mushy-gushiness and onto yesterday’s eats. I knew exactly what I wanted when I woke up. I started out with 1 serving of Trader Joe’s 0% Organic Vanilla Bean Greek Yogurt mixed with 1/2 c TJ’s Low-Fat Cottage cheese and topped with a few organic strawberries.
I LOVE the ingredient listing and the nutritional stats are not bad. I personally never eat 3/4c of granola and usually use just a sprinkle.
Like this! 🙂
I have to admit I am impartial to their Organic FlaxPlus Pumpkin Raisin Crunch as my favorite, but I LOVED this granola. Check out the BIG pieces of pumpkin seeds – YUM!
My co-worker whipped up a batch of Martha Stewarts Strawberry Cupcakes and used the Pillsbury Easy Frost that I gave her to decorate. Don’t they look great?!
Mid morning I had one of my favorite snacks ~ Mini Organic Peppers, Sargenot Low-Fat Colby Cheese, 1/2 a WW Pita Bread (toasted) with a little bit of The Hummus Guy’s Spicy Hummus with Harissa. So good! I could eat this every day.
Does anyone else eat these mini peppers straight up? My co-workers were teasing me about eating a pepper straight ~ I think it’s pretty normal – they are crazy 😀
Lunch was at Buckhorn’s Grill with one of my good friends who I haven’t gone out to lunch with forever. I am seriously the social butterfly this week I guess with all these lunches out but I can’t complain – It’s been fun!
I decided to venture out from my usual salad and have their Little Buck Tri tip Sandwich ~ “4 oz. thinly sliced tri-tip. Served with caramelized onions or Au Jus dipping sauce” It was smokey and tasty. I ended up using some of their BBQ sauce inside instead of the Au Jus.
For my side I picked a green salad with their honey basil vinaigrette. I LOVE this dressing and really need to figure out how to recreate it ASAP.
I stole a couple of sweet potato fries – I seriously have not met a sweet potato fry I didn’t like.
My lunch kept me full all afternoon so I didn’t grab an afternoon snack. When I got home we ended up switching cars and heading over to another friends house. (Yup, social butterfly – that’s me!) We brought Vasquez Deli to our friends and chatted it up about Halloween decorating ideas, movies and just catching up on life. I LOVE simple things like that. For dinner I picked 2 chicken tacos with hot sauce ~ My favorite their since they make their own tortillas.
I am SO glad the weekend is finally here!!! No big plans this weekend so I am looking forward to some relaxing since we didn’t do too much of it on vacation.
I know I am making up a couple new recipes to share with everyone. Fingers crossed they turn out!
Have a fantastic weekend all ~ see you all later tonight!
