This morning we woke up to this frosty view. What the heck spring? It has continued to snow on and off all day. I think all of us in Kentucky can agree… we’re sick of the white stuff! Hopefully this is the LAST time!
Anyhoo, I started off the morning with a yogurt bowl (which I was already halfway through before I remembered to snap a pic!) I used plain yogurt, granola, oats, strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, coconut, pumpkin seeds, pecan, and pumpkin pie spice. Twas quite a bowl.
After breakfast, the baby and I headed to yoga class. I am making big progress in my flexibility and I am getting more comfortable in my poses. It is nice when you know exactly what you’re supposed to do and you’re not craning your neck trying to see what the instructor is doing! I remembered my tumbler so I filled up on free decaf coffee at the gym after class.
Lunch was a turkey pesto sandwich with parmesan, lettuce, and kumatos (brown tomatoes – they were sweet and delicious!) on multigrain bread.
Eaten with a side of raw veggies and Trader Joe’s spinach and kale dip!
This dip is seriously yummy. As much as I really hate the “reduced-guilt” label, (why should we EVER feel guilty for eating? why are companies promoting this??) I can’t help but love it. I tried their full-fat spinach dip (guilty dip? haha) and it is nowhere near as good as this one!
I also sipped on this juice throughout the day. No, of course I didn’t drink it straight from the bottle…
I also had a little dessert after lunch in the form of homemade “froyo.” It’s made with frozen banana, yogurt, cocoa, and peanut butter.
While enjoying this delicious concoction, I got an email from the library. MY COPY OF ALLEGIANT WAS READY FOR PICKUP!!! HALLELUJAH!! Haha I had been on the waitlist for about a week. It seemed like a year, guys. Can’t wait to dive in to book #3!! When we were about to head out I looked at my daughter dressed in red and yellow and thought “doesn’t she just look like an adorable Amity baby?” I’m sorry, my nerdness can’t be controlled.
Once baby was napping, I got snackity and had some more spinach and kale dip with pita crackers this time. I also had some unpictured chocolate covered pretzels filled with peanut butter. Yes, they’re just as heavenly as they sound!
Dinner was AMAZEBALLS if I do say so myself. I made this pepperoni spaghetti squash pizza pie and ummm… holy yum! Baby and I could have easily polished off the whole thing but we had to share with husband.
So instead of hogging the whole pie, I made a little 2-minute chocolate chip mug cake. Ugly picture, but I was trying to eat it at the same time.
I will most likely eat a snack before bed too… probably fruit or cereal. Or both.
I also realize that I’ve had three forms of chocolate today. This is a normal occurrence. Chocolate is good.
How many times a day do you eat chocolate?
Which faction would you choose???
I mean I’d like to say I’m bad-ass enough to be Dauntless… and I’m pretty sure my former high-school aged self would have fit the profie. But now I think it’s just wishful thinking. I like gardening so maybe I should be Amity??
