Sunny Saturday

I was up bright and early this morning to be a patient for my friend who was taking her dental board exams. She is awesome so I know she will do great 😉

I started my morning off with oats!


This bowl contained 1/2 cup oats (cooked with 1/2 cup almond milk and 1/4 cup water), 1 tbsp flax, a banana and almond butter.

By the time I got done with my dental work, it was lunch time, so I stopped somewhere on the way home!


By us, the Jimmy John’s and Starbucks are attached to each other, so I couldn’t resist.

I tried the iced dark cherry mocha with soy milk. It was like a dessert!


My sandwich from Jimmy John’s was a #6 (vegetarian) with no cheese or mayo. I love the avocado spread on here 🙂

008   Then for something sweet, I had a juicy orange to finish out the meal 🙂


Once my lunch had digested well, I went for a 4 mile run in the beautiful sunshine. Then I took Suzie to the dog park and snacked on this bar on the way there.


I did not love this one, it was left over well before I gave up bars for Lent. But it held me over until I ate dinner!

I had quite the smorgasbord. Organic pinto beans, leftover mashed sweet potato with cinnamon and Smart Balance Light, leftover cornbread, leftover asparagus…

012And finally, leftover couscous (1/2 cup). Everything hit the spot!


I also had the rest of my wine from the other night.


What a great meal!

015I’m taking the rest of my chocolate from last night and some tea bags to Buffalo Wild Wings to watch the UFC pay per view with Josh tonight.

It’s been such a great day. I feel truly blessed to have so many things in my life that I enjoy!

Hope today has treated you well too 😉

See you tomorrow!

  5. That sandwich from Jimmy John’s is awesome. I had one shortly after moving to Illinois. The avocado really does seal the deal. It’s not a bad deal either. I end up with lunch for two days. Just thinking about it is making me want one. Yum!
