I lucked out this week because my only remaining class on Thursday was cancelled, giving me a legitimate 5 day weekend. You’re probably hating me right now, so let’s move on to WIAW, shall we? 8)
Yep, that definitely didn’t go anywhere.
Yesterday I began my day with a usual favorite—1/2 cup multigrain Puffins, 1 cup puffed millet, sliced banana, frozen mixed berries & almond milk
with dos slices of T.B.
and Tigger filled with vanilla coffee + vanilla coconut milk creamer + Truvia.
Lately I’ve been heading over to campus a few hours before my classes even begin to park my booty on a bench and spend some quality time with C.S. Lewis & a nice tumbler full of green tea. I’m quick to forget how much I love milking the Florida weather, but every time I make the rediscovery—it’s so much better than I remember 8)
A bag of carrots followed me there too, but my book & tea stole the spotlight from Instagram
Back at my apartment for lunch, I had to throw together something quick before it was time to rush out the door again. At first I started to heat up a Select Harvest tomato basil soup in the microwave, but then took a peek at the nutritional info and saw that there was an overwhelming 30 grams of sugar in the can. Don’t get me wrong, I’m on no sugar-free diet by any means, but TOMATO soup? I would go eat froyo if I wanted those kinds of stats!
I decided to give it a shot anyway, but couldn’t get past the initial spoonful because it was much too sweet and I had thoughts of everything BUT tomatoes bouncing around in my head. With 15 minutes left, I heated up one of my more reliable vegetable soups, added some chickpeas & fresh spinach, and called it a success.
Almost as good as homemade
Plus some cantaloupe on the side.
Speaking of cantaloupe, where the heck have I been!? A huge fruit is something like $2.00 at the store, and I always manage to get at LEAST 3-5 servings out of it (depending on the size & how uncontrollable my appetite is)
This lunch held me over quite nicely so when I returned home from bowling class, I had plenty of time to take Popcorn for a nice long walk before starting on dinner.
I threw together a plate made up of roasted brocc (450 for 10 minutes), two Applegate turkey hot dogs, and a pile of mashed cinnamon butternut squash.
And the best part is that there’s no recipe for the squash side! I literally bought it already mashed & frozen from Publix, heated it up on the stovetop for about 10 minutes, and threw in some cinnamon & salt for flavoring.
Naturally, ketchup was involved.
And now, for the grossest part of this post. Remember that bag of candy corn that Will & I bought in September of last year? The one that he forcibly had to hide from me in a secret location in my apartment so that I was prohibited from eating the entire bag on my own in one sitting?
Yep, I found the secret location last night.
Nobody has to know
