Happy Monday my friends!!! I am currently home ALL BY MYSELF (well Otto is still here but he is outside at the moment). It is definitely strange but I think that I can manage :)
I just spent the last hour and fifteen minutes dusting and vacuuming my entire house. That includes the three rooms upstairs and the back porch. Wow I can get a lot accomplished when I am not interrupted every 10 minutes. I put on some tunes and grooved while I cleaned.
I dismantled the living room so that I could clean under my furniture – something that is not easy to do with a wee one running amuck.
Ok, onto the food.
This morning I headed out for a 7.3 mile run and it was so lovely out. It was actually perfect running weather. I wish that it would stay like this all year.
For breakfast I made the most delicious bowl of oatmeal. The star ingredient was a super juicy pear that I peeled and chopped before adding to the oats during the cooking process. It was so soft that I was able to mash it into the mix while it cooked.
Also in there was 1/2 a cup of the wild Maine blueberries from my Mom, a hefty dose of cinnamon and 1/2 a scoop of Jay Robb Vanilla Rice Protein.
Of course I topped it with a thick drizzle of PB2. Look at that puddle just waiting to be enjoyed.
This morning I needed a little snack to tide me over till lunch. Shocking, I know – you would think that bowl of oatmeal would hold me over. Nope, Sammie needs to refuel like every 3 hours.
I broke into the Peanut Butter Dessert Hummus today. Yup, love this one too.
I had some on Corn Thins. It is sweet but not overly so. I highly recommend it. Then again I highly recommend all the flavors that I have tried.
For lunch today I had a whole wheat English muffin (finally found a soy free brand). On one half I had tuna with Swiss cheese and the other half I had a hard boiled egg with Swiss cheese. I stuck it in my little toaster oven to melt the cheese.
With it I had a super sweet and juicy apple – tis the season.
Lastly I tried a new dark chocolate (new to me). I found this Theo bar at Whole Foods. To my surprise it is soy free. I love chocolate and orange so I was super excited that I can actually eat this variety.
The bar looks like this.
Just the right portion for me. It is delicious. I love the intense chocolate flavor with just a hint of orange.
Well that is all for now. I have to go pick up the D Man soon. The time flew by. I hope you have a great afternoon.
