These were the only foods that sounded good to me at 5pm. [I also really need to go to the grocery store!]. I’m loving these cheese sticks though. I tend to rely on yogurt/milk/cereal/fruit for snacks a lot and am trying to branch out a bit more. Need to hard boil up some eggs! Eat more almonds and trail mix. Dip into the cottage cheese. Also, homemade granola bars are on my to-do list. I also bet you $100 I never make any. But I would like to!
After wrapping up my computer time for the day, I crashed onto the couch at 5:00 with my cheese stick and turned on the TV to find an episode of Friends on. I was never a huge Friends watcher growing up [Saved by the Bell, Full House, Family Matters, Dawson’s Creek… were my fav shows] but there’s just something soooo comforting about sitcoms! I felt more relaxed immediately. Must take me back to childhood! Or it’s the crazy laughing audience ; )
On tonight’s menu was “beans + rice + veggies,” which turned into this lovely mixed bowl of flavors.
I made a cup of brown rice in the rice cooker and mixed it with a few tablespoons of dry nutritional yeast and salt. On the side we sauteed zucchini, a pepper and garden tomatoes in some Garlic Gold Southwest seasoning and olive oil and in another pot heated up a can of Whole Foods Refried Pinto Beans! Made for a fun change from regular loose beans. Topped with a little cheese + greek yogurt to call it a meal.
But before it’s bedtime, it’s So You Think You Can Dance time! Somehow that infuriates me, it did not record last week. I could have sworn they said 2 week hiatus, but then I heard nothing about it and it wasn’t in my DVR so I figured I just got the week number wrong. Then tonight I realized I DID miss an episode somehow! It’s not on Xfinity on demand or Fox.com so I’m not sure if I’ll get to watch it. SO BUMMED! Also Fox.com totally spoiled the results by playing some automatic video when I went to check the episode list. Did any of you see it?
Enjoying a little vanilla bean with peach and chocolate sunflower seed mug mash right now!
5 nights of insomnia has really caught up with me. Hoping that means I sleep well tonight!
