I was mastering the senior citizen head bob by 10pm last night so I gave up and went to bed. I must’ve been way more tired than I thought because I slept until 9 this morning! Mother Nature gave me a wake up call about 7:30 and I laid back down not expecting to fall back asleep. Yikes!
- 1 cup water
- 1/3 cup Sunrise Blend w/ quinoa
- walnut pieces
- cinnamon honey
After eating, I checked my email, placed an order with Amazon, changed cat litter (yay me) and vacuumed the homestead. Once everything was in order I relished a nice hot shower. I’ve had sore muscles somewhere in by body ever since I started strength training again! Good news is that I’m pretty sure I got all the muscle groups now so I shouldn’t be achy anymore. Once I was presentable, I whipped up a wrap to eat while driving over to the mall with DD.
- flatout wrap
- sunflower seed butter
- dried cherries
I’ve seen the nut butter/veggie combo on a few blogs and decided it was high time to try it out. I’m happy to report that it’s a fabulous combo! YUM! And filling, too.
We went to a few stores before the mall, one of which was the Bulk Barn where I replenished my sunrise blend with quinoa stash as well as my coconut mango and chocolate mint tea. I also picked up this little baggie of chocolates for a buck which we shared;
These were pretty good! We both agreed that they were very similar to Smarties. Once DD was decked out with some new outfits for school we indulged in a little Starbuck’s for the drive home. I got my standard tall NF iced green tea latte;
See that look of pure satisfaction? LOL!
I was feeling a little antsy at home so I wound up baking a batch of mini blueberry chia muffins. This time around I subbed coconut extract for the vanilla and used Ruth’s Cranberry Ginger chia seed blend.
Don’t think for a second that this was the only one I ate. I’m pretty sure about 4-5 more found their way to my belly since 3pm! ;)
I had pulled chicken breasts out for dinner tonight but wanted to do something different than grilled on the BBQ so I turned to one of my Clean Eating magazines for inspiration. I found a relatively simple recipe for Chicken Piccata that I had all the ingredients for so that’s what I rolled with.
Ha! I could obviously use some lessons in food plating! Seriously though, this was a great meal. And just because DS wanted you all to see his plate, here it is. You’ll notice that he passed up on the chickpea puree and went with the standard mac & cheese;
SO good, but I just realized looking at this picture that they’re sweetened with Splenda. Def not good for the ole digestive tract so I’ll have to go easy on them.
So, Mom & Dad just left and the kids are getting ready for bed. Not sure what’s up for the rest of the night….nothing to exciting, I’m positive. Maybe something good will be on TV, something better than the 1982 Rocky movie that my hubby is watching now!
Bye for now!!
