Almond butter is awesome
Thanks everyone for your feedback on how often you post your meals.
I’m definitely still giving it a lot of thought and I think I’m close to making a decision about how I want this blog to “flow” :)
Breakfast on Wednesday was pumpkin oat bran with raisins and almond butter.
I love, love, love peanut butter but man…there is just something about almond butter, I can’t explain it. It’s just awesome! Yeah, I suck at writing titles by the way.
I had black coffee and nuts mid-morning but forgot to photograph them.
Lunch was a Morningstar Grilled Chik’n patty with hummus on whole wheat bread and a side salad with balsamic.
Don’t worry, that was only half the salad I packed in the container!
My salads have been pretty boring but mostly I’m just trying to use ‘em up before they go out of date!
I had some Jasmine tea after lunch, it’s one of my favorites :)
Then my afternoon snack was a banana and peanut butter.
I think I am doing pretty good on my No Bars During Lent challenge. It’s made me realize a lot of things, one of which is that I’m missing out on eating stuff like this!
I think once Lent is over, I might keep a couple of bars in the pantry for emergencies or times when I can’t make another snack but I definitely want to try to keep this up long term.
Later, I drank this after my awesome gym workout.
I’m afraid I might be trading one $1/day habit for another. Hmm…
That V-water is my favorite though, it tastes just like Tang and I mean that in a good way ;-)
When I got home from the gym, I was hungry enough that I needed something to hold me over while I cooked dinner, so I snacked on some more nuts.
Speaking of nuts, check out my guest post over at Trading Up Downtown, where I learned about NuVal scores and “traded up” a few of my products (including these nuts, which score a 49, compared to a 9 for cashews).
Next up, a girl’s night potluck recap where I made a dish I have never tried before!
