As I’m sure you can imagine, the kids brought home bucket loads of candy last night. Normally, I have a real problem staying away from those seemingly harmless baby chocolate bars. This year I vowed to be stronger than the chocolate. That being said, I know it would be stupid to make them “forbidden” so I’ve decided to make the commitment to photograph and post what I do eat. I’m confident that this will keep me from over doing things. So, without further ado, here’s what I ate last night;
Not bad, eh?!
- 1 cup water
- 1/3 cup sunrise blend w/ quinoa
- 1 tbsp PB2
- dried blueberries
- carob chips
Oh boy, this was G-O-O-D!!!
I realize it doesn’t look pretty, but that’s OK because it tasted great! I pressed the Stonemill bagel to flatten it a bit this time so that the egg whites didn’t spread out underneath. Seemed to work better, huh? And of course, some candy;
I am happy to report that there were no more treats after this! :)
I got the grocery shopping done after lunch and picked myself up a 1/2 coffee, 1/2 pumpkin spice latte from 7-11 on the way home…
What was left of the afternoon was spent on the computer and in front of the TV. The fam wanted lasagna for dinner so I cheated and bought one for them. For myself I made the Moroccan Chickpea Stew from Peas and Thank You.
I did make a few baby changes. I used a 28oz can of diced tomatoes in their juice and omitted the broth. I also added a half cup of quinoa and no thickener at the end. I could not decide between raisins or apricots so I did a quarter cup of each. A small scoop of goat milk yogurt and I had one delicious meal on my hands! I also roasted up my last kabocha squash while the oven was on for the lasagna. That will be enjoyed sometime this week.
We went to my parents for a bit after dinner where 3 chocolate chip cookies were consumed. I`m not classifying those a Halloween treats cuz I usually eat that when I visit! Hehe….I can be such a cheater sometimes!!!
The Amazing Race is on now and then I plan on doing some reading before I call it a day. Hope you have all enjoyed the weekend!
Bye for now!!
