Anyway, here are today’s treats!
- 3/4 cup Alpen no-sugar-added cereal (it’s a muesli, basically)
- 1/2 cup milk
- 3/4 cup sliced strawberries
Snack was a banana with a 1.5 tbsp of almond butter (I added more almond butter than what’s pictured.)
Embarrassingly, my desk is right near our office’s boardroom, and just as I was trying to take this picture ALL of the managers in our branch walked out of a meeting. Luckily I work in the creative services unit, so they all just stared for a minute and then shrugged and said, “Oh, you creative types!” Pretty funny, I thought.
Lunch was leftover’s from yesterday’s
I also had a sliced red pepper and two tbsp. hummus.
Dessert was a cup of red grapes. I love that this plan always includes fruit after lunch.
I actually skipped the snack that was scheduled for this afternoon. I ran an errand over lunch (read: went to Sephora to browse for an hour), and by the time I got back and ate my lunch it was 2pm. So I didn’t need a snack.
Dinner was quick and dirty. It called for half a cup each of mushrooms and tomatoes, 1 cup of chickpeas, and four ounces of chicken. In my usual fashion, I just threw it all together. I also added shallots, garlic, and a tbsp of lemon juice. Delicious!
Also I only used a 1/2 cup of chickpeas instead of a full cup, although in retrospect I could have probably eaten more -- as evidenced by the fact that a chickpea rolled off my spoon and in between the couch cushions AND I STILL ATE IT. Ha ha ha!!
Anyway, that’s all for me! I’m off to enjoy my Friday night! I hope all of you are doing the same! :)
