Today was another "good" day, in terms of healthy eating. Having the day off from work definitely helps with that. For breakfast, I had 3/4 cup spelt flakes with 1/2 cup plain non-fat yogurt, one sliced banana, and some raw trail mix on top. It was a very satisfying breakfast. It was my first time trying spelt but not my last! Oh no. Not my last.
We had the cable/phone/Internet installed and then went out to run errands, so I didn't really have a proper lunch. For my first snack, I had an apple and almond butter (polished off that jar, onto the next!)
For my second snack, I was stuck in a car so I was forced against my will to eat a delicious Larabar. It had chili and cocoa in it. I approve of this combination.
By the time I got home, it was almost 3:00 pm and I was STARVING (caps necessary). I had one of the blueberry scones I baked earlier in the day. I used my favourite scone recipe from the cookbook Vegan with a Vengeance but I attempted to health-ify the recipe. I substituted 1.5 cups of the all-purpose flour with whole wheat, and subbed 1/6th of the oil with apple sauce. They were pretty good for being health-ified! I had one along with the last of the chickpea and olive salad.
I was still hungry, so I finished off some pasta salad too. I probably didn't need this, but I wanted it.
For dinner, I tried out some new recipes. Since I've forfeited the idea of kale in Green Monsters, I decided to cook it with some lemon and garlic. I added too much lemon juice and it was SOUR. I made this Greek Frittata from a recipe in a recent issue of Women's Health. Only 206 calories per serving and I get to eat eggs and feta cheese? Sign me up. It was really delicious. And, lastly, I had a simple baked sweet potato topped with some non-fat plain yogurt and cinnamon. Triple deliciousness.
Now I am just drinking some lemon green tea and eagerly anticipating the premiere of Jon and Kate Plus 8. Or should that be Jon Plus 4 and Kate Plus 4? I have to admit, I am a sucker for other people's drama. It is even better when it is televised.
