7:30 am – Coffee + AB Toast – First Signs of Feeling Full (6)
I brewed some Bolivian Blend coffee for the AM brew and had my yummy soy creamer with it.
I also had some Almond Butter toast. The cheese I was trying so hard to finish is gone and I finished the rest of the bread today. The raggedy piece in the back is a remnant leftover from the other night when my stomach was feeling a bit upset and I wanted something bland, like plain bread, to help settle it. I also toasted up one of the loaf ends. Both were lightly spread with some Barney Butter . This is becoming one of my go-to breakfasts when I’m pressed for time in the AM.
I wasn’t even craving Sbucks today, so I just skipped it. Must be the soy creamer?
1:30 pm – Veggie Soup + Roll – Content (5)
I spent a long 1.5 hours today in the coldest conference room I’ve ever been in! I was so freezing cold, I put my laptop on my lap to try to use the heat to stay warm. I’m totally bringing a blanket next week…for real!
To help defrost, I got some Garden Veggie Soup from Just Fresh , which I had with a roll. For a veggie soup, it sure didn’t have many vegetables, but it did help warm me up.
I just had more water with lunch.
3:00 pm – Turkey Sandwich – First Signs of Feeling Full (6)
I brought a sandwich with me to work today. I wanted to eat it earlier in the day, but I was on a conference call from 2-3 and was doing most of the talking. I ended up eating my sad little sandwich after my meeting. The sandwich today was a bit sad because I didn’t have anything to put on it besides turkey and cheese! At least the Great Harvest bread was awesome as usual.
5:00 pm – Flamingo Martini – Content (5)
My team had a team building event after work today and we all went out for drinks after hours. We got to enjoy the beautiful weather from the restaurant’s patio. It felt amazing outside. I enjoyed a Flamingo martini – 10 cane rum (or something), pineapple juice, and grenadine (and maybe another ingredient I’m forgetting). Nice and fruity!
9:00 pm – Shrimp Pasta – First Signs of Feeling Full (6)
With SCBR wrapping up in just a couple short weeks, I’m hoping to really buckle down on my eating habits (since I’ve been splurging a lot lately).
I decided to make up a shrimp + pasta dish using pretty Papparedelle pasta, wine, peas, artichoke hearts, pasta water, and of course shrimp.
Dinner was pretty good and definitely a nice light meal for a change of pace. I topped the pasta with some parmesan-reggiano cheese.
I had a little more of the wine I used to cook dinner along with my meal. I like how drinking the wine you cooked with a dish really brings out the flavors.
I did save room for a little dessert – Chocolate Almond Milk. I hope this counts towards my nuts, seeds, beans, or soy intake for the day since I’m supposed to get at least one serving and I think I only had about 1 tbsp of almond butter in the AM.
I had a small cup – about 1/2 – 3/4 cup. It was quite yummy, but I think I like Chocolate Soy Milk better.
Which do you prefer: Soy Milk, Almond Milk, or Regular Milk?

OMG I am so jealous of the shrimp and pasta dish! I have been craving that stuff for the longest now…but no one else in the family will eat shrimp. So this mommy gets none unless it is a special occasion or something stupid like that. *thumbs down*
The coffee looks so yummy…
but when it gets warmer do you crave it less? I usually begin to crave tea in the morning around spring. 😀
I have totally tried to use my laptop to stay warm….also when I print a huge document at work it comes out of the printer nice and toasty and I kind of bear hug it….so lame! haha. why must they keep offices so cold?
the pasta looks tasty!
I always prefer "Lactaid" brand, Fat Free Milk first but second choice is unsweetened vanilla almond milk. I like soy, but it makes me unbelieveable gassy. TMI – sorry but that's the reason I stopped drinking soy. LOLL
I've never tried soy milk (it creeps me out!) or almond milk, so I'd have to pick milk milk. I'm trying to get over my alternative milk issue, though! Any suggerstions?
i am loving your new camera. i need one this good!!! that pasta dish looks so insanely incredible!!
