I started off Wednesday with some more oatmeal. I have had the same thing for breakfast almost every day this week!
Hey, if it ain’t broke…
Along with green juice, I have also been enjoying homemade iced coffee with unsweetened coconut milk 🙂
I snacked on some natural almonds.
For lunch, I had another Sunshine garden herb patty inside of a pita pocket with a tomato slice and salsa verde.
The tomato I used was purchased from Huber’s Farm, which is located about 45 minutes away from me over in Indiana. I felt good about making a semi-local purchase, but I was still sure to wash and scrub the tomato as I’m not sure what might’ve been on there.
For “dessert” I had a new to me fruit: a champagne mango!
Since I didn’t bring a knife to cut it with, I just bit right into it.
The skin had a little bit of a funky taste, so I ended up peeling it back and eating the fruit inside. It was so good! It had a slightly different taste than a regular mango and I found this one to be much juicier and sweet than most mangoes I’ve had.
For my afternoon snack, I had a Larabar. One of my favorite flavors!
Then I went home and took Suzie for a walk instead of going to the gym. It was a good choice!
I was hungry when we got back so I had some raisins, which is what I was craving 🙂
Then for dinner, we headed over to Beth’s house for our weekly girl’s night potluck. On the menu this week: Squash!
Beth made a delicious dish of summer squash baked in garlic herb tomato sauce. It looked very simple but was bursting with flavor.
Between this dish and my beloved spaghetti squash, I can declare: I LOVE SQUASH! I love how it is technically a vegetable (?) but you can make it the main component of your meal. It is quite versatile since there are so many varieties of squash and ways to cook them.
I also had a side salad with diced tomatoes and onion with Annie’s natural goddess dressing and some warm, soft and chewy Meijer bakery bread, which I have absolutely no willpower to turn down 😉
For dessert, Margie brought a lovely rice milk treat.
I have had this brand before and their ingredients aren’t too bad and the sugar content is moderate, which I think being made from rice milk helps that. I thought it was pretty good too!
I enjoyed this while we watched New Moon. I never read the books but it’s fun to watch the movies and find out what everyone is obsessing about, ha ha. From an “outsider” perspective, I thought the second movie was better (but a little long), since the first one just made me laugh.
Do you like squash?
