A look at daily eats...
Around 11:30, I started to feel a bit hungry and went with another coffee and a banana nut Quest bar. I had some calls in the afternoon and indulged in a diet soda. Not ideal. I actually realized that I felt kida gross after drinking it. Around 3ish when I started to get hungry again, the only thing I could think about was oatmeal (again). I had brought a proper lunch, but decided on oatmeal, round 2.
Under that cinnamon (yes, I brought a shaker of cinnamon to work) is a blob of this stuff:
Vanilla bean + Espresso. What's not to like?
We grilled steaks on Sunday and I had two 4 oz. filets from Beetnik Foods that I had my husband do for lunches this week. I basically felt like a king eating steak for lunch.
This photo is from my lunch on Monday, but it was the same except the steak wasn't covered with spinach, onions, and horseradish and there was no salad. I bought the sweet potato at Whole Foods and was shocked to see that 3 small sweet potatoes ended up being 5 dollars. Is that normal? Am I cheap?
Steak for lunch is pretty filling, but I did end up getting snacky around 4:30. I started with jicama and bell pepper, then grazed on some baby carrots. and finally had a couple almonds when I got home around 5:30. I am on a huge jicama kick right now.
Dinner was Cream Cheese Chicken Chili (I do it on the stovetop instead of the crockpot) and kale salad. I assigned my husband with making skillet cornbread for himself and his brother and I tasted a sliver.
We had an early night and did some reading/internet browsing before bed. I had some healthier hot chocolate made of almond milk, hot water, stevia, and half a packet of CocoaVia while sitting in bed reading.
I rarely participate in this because I am not great about documenting the meals and snacks, but occasionally it's nice to see a day's eats. Interesting? Not interesting? I'm needing some feedback here.
Have you had Jicama? Do you eat it plain or have a recipe or suggestion for me?
If you could make your ideal almond butter combo, what would it be? Vanilla coconut or salted caramel.
