Yup….that would be me! Last week I sorta entered a little food funk where I just felt rebellious…I sorta just went with it and ate what I wanted and didn’t care about fruits’/veggies/dairy or any of that. Today, I took that to a bigger extreme and I think I ate pretty much everything in our house…..well, (except a few crumbs) ok, maybe not that bad, but, I FEEL like that now. I think sometimes you need to just have a “day” and for me today was “THAT DAY”. I didn’t track in writing (but I did with my pictures LOL) or count my points :/ I am pretty sure I would’ve ran out of room on my paper journal and the online version would’ve gone to page 2 or 3 .
The good thing is that I feel like I am ready to re-focus and get back to it. OH and I learned to NOT work in the kitchen. So, for what it’s worth….here it goes!
Isn’t this the CUTEST bottle of PURE Maple Syrup straight from Canada you’ve ever seen?
In the mix this morning:
1/3 c ff cottage cheese
1/3 c uncooked oatmeal (quick cooking or old fashioned)
1 Tbsp freshly ground flax seed
Splash of vanilla & COCONUT extract
Dashes of cinnamon & sea salt
Sprinkle of shredded coconut
Topped with a little whipped butter, sprinkle of coconut and my new PURE Maple Syrup drizzle. AMAZING! I was sad when it was all gone 🙁
But, my day quickly brightened when The Husband surprised me by dropping off a Venti Iced Decaf Latte with Caramel Drizzle on top 😀
I had to hang out at home today for this project to begin…..
Never in a million years did I ever think I’d be so happy to see a BIG Central Heat & Air Vent in our hallway. I know when summer comes around and it’s 110+ degrees, we will be sitting COOL!
Just one more day and we will officially have CH&A throughout our entire 1940’s house – I cannot wait….it’s the little, or, um, big things 🙂
Mid morning, I couldn’t wait to dig into another one of my Canada Goodies…this amazing looking Trail Mix.
I LOVE that they use maple syrup in it ~ it’s so Canada of them lol.
I’ve never had soybean nuts before today….they are delicious ~ this mix is the right balance of sweet and salty.
My lunch options were sorta limited to the microwave or fridge so I opted for some reheated Oh My Squash Pot stickers topped with Sriracha and sesame seeds.
Since I seem to want to try EVERYTHING in my Canada pack, I found a way to justify having a couple of these for dessert.
What exactly is “fancy” molasses and how is it different from “normal” molasses? Anyone?? It’s funny to me 🙂
Healthy, organic chocolate chip mini cookies ~ totally crunchy, yet, they melt in your mouth.
I spent the afternoon listening to lots of drilling and working away on a project for work. I think we I work in the kitchen, I want to eat EVERYTHING in the kitchen. I found myself munching on some Pirates Booty for my afternoon snack even though I am not so sure I really NEEDED it.
And because I really
didn’t NEEDED another snack, I made up a cheesy quesadilla roll up.
I wasn’t sure if I was going to be able to use our stove tonight since it’s gas, so we headed out to Round Table Pizza for dinner. I probably could’ve cooked, but, why, when you can have a salad like this.
I went a little crazy on the doughy goodness ~ 2 parmesan twists, 1 slice veggie pizza and 1 slice Hawaiian Pizza.
I was ready to be ROLLED home, but, I still managed to find room for their mini cinnamon twists.
I am totally suffering in a BIG Food Coma, yet, I am settling in to watch The Biggest Loser ~ oh the irony, right?!
Some days I can be so spot on and other days not so much. The good part is I feel pretty awful so I think I reminded myself why I like to eat clean 90% of the time.
Tomorrow is a new day to get 110% back on track!
