We’re movin’ along on our Saturday over here. We went to the gym this morning via bike. I just stuck to some light ellipticaling because yesterday was intense with my boot camp moves and biked back home. I was pretty starving when I got here!
We’ve got a fun food event tonight so I kept lunch light – with volume to fill me up.
I steamed some broccoli, bell pepper, carrot, parsnip and kale in the microwave and had that over a bed of romaine tossed with balsamic and lemon olive oil. Plus some leftover feta, flax and walnuts.
Plus half an orange on the side (split with the husband)
He made an amazing sardine salad melt, of which I had a bite.
And I served my salad in his bowl so I could soak up some of the flava.
20 minutes later, while full of veggies, I still felt kind of empty. I decided to add some protein in the form of heavy yogurt – along with some jam and Quaker Oatmeal Squares. Perfecto! Actually, it was almost too much in addition to the big salad, but I definitely won’t need a snack before our 6pm reservations.
After lunch I cleaned all the floors and did some more laundry. And we watched some more Always Sunny. It’s not going to be my favorite show, but I’m enjoying it so far. I don’t think the acting is as good as The Office or Arrested but I do think it’s interesting.

I received an email from reader Laura, who was one of the lucky Barney Butter winners. Looks like she’s almost out
I was one of the lucky winners of your Barney Butter giveaway. I remember you had asked us to let you know how we enjoyed eating our BB. As you can see, I’ve reached the bottom of my jar. I attached a picture of my favorite way to eat nut butters in general, which is with banana on sandwiches. I also love to eat it in oatmeal. Just wanted to let you know that I thoroughly enjoyed the jar that I won! (So did my dog Rocky, I’d stuff his hollow bone with a tiny bit occasionally)
I’m SO EXCITED about tonight!!!!!!! The suspense!!
