**This entry was actually written on Thursday, but it made that post entirely too long, so I decided to split it into two.
So, in case you or I did not think I was influenced by what I see, here is what I had to eat today.
Saw Lori’s protein waffles on her blog last night, and decided that was what I would have for breakfast. I was out of cottage cheese, so substituted yogurt. they didn’t look nearly as pretty as Lori’s, but they tasted great. I have not been happy with the blueberry sauce when I have tried to make it, but decided to try one last time, and had the idea of adding in a little apple juice. That made it just right!
Yesterday I had a hankering for honeydew melon, so stopped at the farmer’s market to get one. It was gigantic, and cost $8, but oh man, most worthy! So sweet. That’s what I had for my mid-morning snack.
At lunchtime, I spied the strawberries that I had purchased at the FM, so took those out. I decided to go ‘a la Lori’ again, and just had the strawberries with some yogurt and topped with the crumbs from the above bars. That’s a pretty small lunch for me, but I knew I wanted a mid-afternoon snack to try the bars.
Late afternoon: Starbuck’s iced coffee and the energy bar. It had 3 chocolate chips in it!
For dinner, I had noticed Pubsgal’s fish from the night before, and it put me in the mood for a simple fish filet. Pan-fried (with Pam) over medium high heat with just garlic salt, and then the juice of a whole lemon squeezed over the fish when it is done cooking. Paired it with this excellent salad. This is the first time I have bought goat cheese, and I loved these little individual rounds. One round is 70 calories, and I only used 1/2 of one. This was so tasty. Usually I only have a ‘big salad’ as a meal. Oh, and I had a home grown tomato on the side.
Pear,walnut, goat cheese, and spinach salad.
Plan to finish out the night with that perfect trifecta of desserts: a little greek yogurt with a bit of muesli, walnuts and chocolate chips on top. Come to think of it, I could just crumble half of one of those bars on it, and I would have about the same thing!
Trifecta reminds me of triathlon. A big congratulations goes to my friend Pubsgal, who just finished her third triathlon!!! She does a great race report. Go on over there and congratulate her on such an amazing accomplishment.
And if you just need a bit of cheering up, or inspiration of some sort, check out this video. Has everybody heard of this guy except me?
