So I don’t know if it was because I am working at home today or the fact that breakfast was on the high side for sugar (more hemp milk + mango) but my stomach was growling like crazy by 10:45! Definitely out of character for that time of day. So I had what I consider to be the best “tide me over” snack: nuts and trail mix.
I recieved a sample of these Roasted Garbanzo Beans from OhNuts.com a week ago and they are really delicious! The bad news is they are roasted in oil and are very calorie dense for a munching snack, so I kept my portion small to about a tbsp. They’re kind of chalky but I really enjoyed the texture.
I also had a half serving of Deluxe Trail Mix.
Snack worked like a charm! I didn’t sit down to lunch until 1:30 so it bought me about 2.5 hours. Amazing how nuts are little tiny packages of satiety!
I picked up some kale when I stopped at the grocery store last night to have for lunch today. I just love these chips 🙂 While they are certainly crispy, they do still have some good chew to them at the base of each leaf, so you get a good mouthful.
I’ve been having cravings for fruit + yogurt + cereal blends. It must be the warmer weather!? So I had 3/4 a cup of greek yogurt with a bunch of fresh strawberries, 1/4 cup Organic Morning Lite and 1/4 cup wheatberries <3 I don’t think there could be a more perfect chewy topping for yogurt than wheatberries. They are definitely my new favorite food.
Leftover purple haze asparagus. It was actually a really good batch of asparagus. Guess because it’s in season!
It’s been a while! After a few weeks off, my kashi cracker cravings have returned 🙂
From above –
This lunch was about 475 kcal, 17 grams of fiber and 30 grams protein (half from the yogurt). I had to put my yogurt and crackers away because my in-laws came by so I just finished up lunch at 2:30. Guess I’ll have a late snack, which works out well with our 7:30 cocktail and appetizer party. Definitely don’t want to go starving to that or I’ll do a lot of damage!
I AM FINISHED WITH STATS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I took my final test this morning and submitted my final project (done in PowerPoint) via email. I just have one really hard test and 2 easy ones and I have a week or two to relax (including a trip to Baltimore to visit my grandparents with my mom and my sister’s college graduation) before Round II of Chemistry starts.
I’ve got errands/chores this afternoon and then am heading up to Davidson around 4:30 – we’re going to hit rush hour 🙁 I should be posting the cocktail party recap late tonight.
Have a GREAT weekend!!!
