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?
