We did manage to make it to story hour this morning. The stories were cute and the kids enjoyed making a butterfly craft. While we were out I had to stop at Whole Foods again. Charlie announced to me this morning that he was out of cereal – he couldn’t have told me the box was low yesterday when he told me he needed chips. I seriously have been to some sort of grocery store every day this week – I probably look like a grocery store junkie to my neighbors. My breakfast held me over fabulously and I did not even get hungry until noon and it wasn’t that keel over and die hunger either. As you know I usually need a snack if my breakfast speeds through my system so this was rather surprising to me – maybe it was the Coconut Milk?
When we got home I made lunch using the left over veggies & nutritional yeast I made yesterday. I added some mixed greens and cottage cheese to the bowl – it was a biggie.
I also had a gluten free roll with PB and an apple.
At Whole Foods today I picked up a new protein powder – Olympian Labs Pea Protein. Last week I had asked one of the sales associates to order me a bag of Jay Robb’s Vanilla Rice Protein since they do not carry it in the store. She happily took down my info and said it would not be a problem. She was there today, so I checked on my order seeing as I am almost out of the one I am currently using. She said that my order has not even been placed. So I had to choose something else – I did not want to buy the same one I already have – it is only so so. Pea Protein it was. I like the nutritionals except that there seems to me more sodium in this powder.
This afternoon I decided to give it a shot. Into the Vita-Mix went 1/2 a cup Almond Milk (the last of my carton), 1/2 a cup of water, a scoop of Pea Protein and some ice.
I was pleasantly surprised at how good this stuff is. It even mixed up creamy. The Pea Protein has sort of a nutty flavor and since there is Stevia in there it is sweet. It’s a keeper.
I still want to get my hands on the heart throbs stuff but this will have to do while I wait.
I also ate an unpictured Enjoy Life Cocoa Loco bar.
Dinner tonight was weird and totally unprepared. I just randomly selected things from the fridge and called it a meal. I mixed chic peas with grape tomatoes and added a tsp of olive oil and dried basil. It was rather good and clean tasting.
I also had a sweet potato with a slice of Swiss and organic ketchup for dipping. AND a piece of gluten free bread & sunflower seed butter. Told you it was an odd combo.
Dessert was something new – a Natural Choice Full of Fruit Strawberry Fruit Bar.
I had to show you how happy this little gem made me (self portrait shots are tough). It really had a summer sort of feel to it. Frosty, fruity and light in my tummy. If D sees them he will want them so I better eat one while I can. He loves strawberry frozen bars of any sort.
I was able to squeeze in a little yoga time this evening while my guys ran to CVS. I did a 20 minute Detox yoga & a 25 minute Yoga for Runners on Yoga Download. It was so peaceful having the house to myself even if it was for just a sort time.
Tonight is bill paying night – fun, fun, fun. Do you dread that task?
I have something exciting planned for tomorrow evening and this weekend but you will have to come back and find out tomorrow. I am hoping that we are not up too late – I need my rest seeing as I am cleaning tomorrow.
Enjoy your evening. See you in the morning a few bucks poorer.
