I had fruit salad, from a couple nights ago, topped with Yami Yogurt.
I might be getting tired of the yogurt morning snack soon… maybe.
Leftover Salmon and couscous from last night.
I feel like I’m lacking on the veggies today. 😦
On my actual lunch break, I ran a couple errands and ended up at Whole Foods. I had some coupons in the car and $7 that was burning a whole in my pocket so I decided to stock a little for my goody drawer at work. I ended up with 2 new (to me) Larabar flavors to try and a new (to me) chocolate bar.
As soon as I got back to work, I tried a tiny bit of the chocolate.
Normally, I stick to Endangered Species 88% cacao chocolate bar but I felt the need to have chocolate at work and had a Green & Black coupon for $1 off. I checked out the varieties of dark chocolate and this appealed the most to me. I LOVE orange chocolate. You know those chocolates that are actually in the shape of an orange? Uh huh. My fav. They always remind me of my Opa. This bar was very similar. I might like it better. It had a little more spice to it but the orange and creamy chocolateness still came through nicely. It melted in my mouth! (The 93* weather probably isn’t helping!) From Green & Black’s website: "…blending rich, dark chocolate with a refreshing twist of orange that is perfectly balanced by the warmth of cinnamon, nutmeg and a hint of vanilla." Also known as: heaven.
More boy-chopped mushroom, bell pepper, and carrots dipped in Sabra hummus.
Except the bell pepper tasted funky and I wasn’t feeling the carrots so I just ate the mushrooms and licked the rest of the hummus off of a carrot.
And then I had another piece of Maya Gold.
Before leaving work, I tried the pistachio larabar.
I wasn’t insanely impressed but it wasn’t bad either. I ate half of this bar.
I thought about hitting the gym, but was really hot and unmotivated. Probably hormone related. 😦 I took a cold shower when I got home and then started dinner. I was hungry!
Made up for my lack of veggies earlier in the day! I made vegetable spaghetti. I used a zucchini, squash, some asparagus, mushrooms, onion, garlic and bell pepper. LOTS of veggies! 😀
I chopped all the veggies and seasoned them with EVOO, salt and pepper and roasted them in the oven. I boiled some whole wheat spaghetti noodles and heated up some Classico Spaghetti Sauce in a small saucepan.
I intentionally did lots of veggies so we’d have some leftovers!
I topped the noodles with some sauce (that I spiced up by adding a can of diced tomatoes, garlic powder, oregano, and a dash of cayenne), added the roasted veggies, and sprinkled with shredded parmesan.
We had a small amount of Black Box Cab Sauv.
This is the best boxed wine I have ever had! Very economical and great for just wanting a small pour here and there! I recommend! I think we paid ~$20-25 for the box and I think it is 3-4 bottles worth of wine? How great is that?!
Dinner was superbly easy and tasty! Yum!
Off to watch an episode of The Wire!
