Today it was 60 degrees here in MA. Unfortunately the warm weather is not here to stay – soon enough though. I was up and out the door super early to get in a run before taking D to karate. I did a 9 mile run, again my time was 1 hour and 15 minutes – at least I am consistent. It was so nice out there today, still a bit of a chill but nothing compared to this day.
I was sure that my breakfast this morning was going to contain yogurt. I really loved the combo yesterday and had to have it again. I started by cooking 1/2 cup oatmeal with water. Once it was cooked I added a banana. Today’s yogurt topping was just 1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt. I added a little tsp drizzle of agave for sweetness. It was divine.
We headed to D’s karate class which means we are out the door at 8:30. After class we went to Border’s to get D a book for having a good class. He is into this Naruto series which is about a boy ninja. Rocco tagged along too – he just loves hanging with us – we’re cool I guess. I snacked on a Luna bar. This flavor was only OK – not sure if I will buy it again.
When we got home it was time to scrounge up something for lunch. I had an English muffin topped with hummus, tomato and Swiss cheese.
I also had 1/4 cup cottage cheese, a plum and a kiwi.
Lunch ended with a cup of tea and a Kashi granola bar.
We had to run a few errands after lunch. We had to get our hermit crab a new shell – we think that the one he is living in is getting a little small. When we got home I needed a snack so I went for the Cinnamon Puffins – oh how I missed these little crunchy pillows of goodness. In the bowl along with the Puffins was 1/2 a cup Greek yogurt and a tbsp of sunflower seed butter.
For dinner tonight I did a little experimenting. I mashed up 1/4 cup cannellini beans, then added a hard boiled egg, shredded zucchini & summer squash and 1/4 cup cottage cheese. I know it sounds a little wacky, but it was good.
With my little creation I had a Flat-Out wrap. I did stuff some of the egg/bean salad into the wrap which tasted pretty darn yummy.
Since my dessert was such a hit last night I had to recreate it – with a few modifications – gotta switch things up every now and then. I know this combo is going to sound strange but trust me it was good. In this “mess” was shredded zucchini & summer squash (mommy needs her veg), pumpkin, Cinnamon Puffins, 1/4 cup vanilla yogurt and a tbsp drizzle of sunflower seed butter. The squash tastes so good with the yogurt and SB.
I am pretty sure nothing super exciting is happening around my house this evening. Maybe I will chill in front of the TV after D goes to bed, speaking of that, time to get him washed up.
I hope you all had a great Saturday. See you tomorrow.
