Onto the eats…

I forgot to mention in yesterday’s post that I stretched for a full 10 minutes after my jog-walk (I can put jog first since I did more of that than walking, haha). It was nice and it definitely helped, I have zero tightness/soreness today 🙂

Lunch yesterday was a veggie burger with ketchup on a whole wheat English muffin…

And some celery with hummus and a chocolate chip Z bar (I still have 13 in the box at home, yikes)…

I can’t remember when I had this, sometime in the afternoon, but I had 2 tbsp of honey roasted peanuts because they are my favorite and someone at work was sharing…but then when I ate them, I was less than impressed. Hmm, have mixed nuts really become the new favorite, wow!

Later in the afternoon, I had my afternoon snack of yogurt + Kashi Go Lean 🙂 I also had a cup of decaf coffee at some point in the p.m.


After I ate this, my mouth wanted something else for some reason, so I decided to finally utilize my travel size tooth brush and paste that I picked up at Target a week or so ago, haha.

Then later, I gave in and had a few pieces of hard candy, I love this stuff! Butterscotch, cinnamon and another one, I think it was buttercream?

When I got home, I took the doggie out for a nice (freezing) walk but not before biting a small amount of almond butter (1/2 a tbsp?). I totally didn’t need this, I think after this and the dark chocolate from yesterday, I will quit eating peanut (or almond!) butter right when I get home. That’s my husband’s Lean Pockets box in the background, btw.

Since I’m trying to use up stuff in the house, I decided to have breakfast for dinner. I made an egg + spinach + cheese omelete topped with salsa, served with turkey sausage and a small (4 oz) glass of OJ, which I hadn’t had in forever but it was in the fridge and not even opened!

Another close-up…it was very tasty!

After dinner, I was rummaging through DVDs to try to find something to watch and I ate 3 starburst candies from our candy bowl on the coffee table. I have no idea why but now they are gone, so at least I can’t do that again!

I ended up watching several Christmas episodes from various seasons of “Friends” one of my all-time favorite shows that I hadn’t busted out in forever! Then I threw in “Just Friends” (have a theme?) one of my favorite Christmas movies. Have you seen it? Please do if you haven’t, it’s hilarious!

While watching, I poured myself a glass of Cabernet…I didn’t even finish this, I had maybe 2/3 of it, then I passed out asleep on the couch, haha.

In between wine sippings, I made something I hadn’t had in a while Tofu Chocolate Pudding! I had all the ingredients at home, plus it sounded like a good dessert, so I went for it. Here’s me pouring it into the bowl to store in the fridge (you must chill it for an hour before eating)…

Since my recipe is slightly modified from the link I provided, here’s my version (I use less tofu and more soymilk than original recipe):
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips + 2 tbsp water
12 oz package of Mori-Nu light silken firm tofu
1/2 cup plain soymilk
1 tbsp vanilla extract

Melt chocolate chips with water, then put all ingredients in a blender and puree until well mixed and smooth. Pour into a container and refrigerate for at least an hour before eating.

It’s sort of like a mousse, very smooth and fluffy consistency. I love the taste too, I don’t know if it’s the vanilla or the chocolate but it’s just a little rich and totally hits the spot. I’m glad I made it, and I still have about three more servings left, yippee!

Here’s my bowl topped with some fat free reddi-whip!

This recipe helped me use up the rest of my chocolate chips, tofu and vanilla extract! I’m doing good at this using stuff up thing, so far, eh?

Happy Friday (again)!
