Hello bloggies!!! I hope you had a great day. D and I went to the book store for story hour this morning. The theme of the day was Fancy Nancy – yeah, not up D’s alley at all. He was a trooper and tried to enjoy the stories anyway. All the little girls were thrilled. Some even came all dressed up – it was so cute.
I ate a Raw Crunch bar before we left.
For lunch I had gluten free cheesy toast (provolone was my cheese of choice this afternoon), a few slices of red pepper and a baked sweet potato. Of course the sweet potato was COVERED in cinnamon.
I also had my first Oikos yogurt today. I was thrilled when the company contacted me and asked if I would be willing to do some taste testing. I chose the Honey flavor today. Let me tell you, they are generous with the honey in this cup. It was so creamy and delicious – I LOVED IT!! Of course I still love my plain Greek yogurt but this was a nice little treat. I would definitely keep a stash of this in my fridge.
I ended lunch with a Coco Loco bar.
D and I decided it was such a nice day that a bike ride was in order. I had a quick snack (he did too) and we set out for a little adventure. I had 1/2 a cup Greek yogurt and a Nature’s Promise bar (hooray for these things being gluten free because I really like them). He rode his bike while I walked beside him. Of course he needed some help every now and then if he got stuck on a hill or in the sand – the sidewalks are a mess. I really wish we lived in house with a big long paved driveway – that would be a blast. I could rollerblade and play basketball and he could ride his bike and run around like a mad man to hearts content. Oh well, we make do with what we have – at least we have a house.
We were out for over an hour and it was so warm in the sun I could have stayed out there longer. D was hungry and I needed to start dinner. I made a big salad – lettuce, red & orange pepper, broccoli slaw, hummus, salsa and cottage cheese. I also had 2 rice cakes with all those yummy veggies.
Dessert was 3 Corn Thins with PB and 2 Medjool dates filled with a little more PB. I really like the texture of the Corn Thins and they taste just like air popped popcorn. The best part about them is that they do not crumble like a rice cake – they have a little bit more body to them even though they are thinner. If you like rice cakes I would highly recommend you give Corn Thins a try. I found them at Whole Foods in case you want to get some.
My guys are having a little Star Wars battle on the Wii right now. It is just about time to get my little monkey in bed. Tomorrow is a “work” day – I know we have a hard job. The whole 2 hours is so tough.
I would like to try to get in a little yoga tonight. My left hamstring was feeling tight so I took a few days off from running and it feels 100% better. I would like to have a good stretch (yoga being my favorite way to do so), so that I can have a decent run in the AM. I hope you have a great night. See you tomorrow.
Oh yeah – I have been making gluten free bars today. So far my pumpkin seed, sunflower seed, cashew and honey version came out great. They actually stayed in a bar form. I just made almond, coconut and honey. They smell delicious – I hope they stay together when I cut them. I will have one tomorrow and let you see my handy work. Nothing like getting creative in the kitchen. Goodnight.
