I’m going to make this one quick… today is a little overwhelming at work!
I started yesterday off with a quick workout at the gym — just about 25 minutes of biking (all my knee can really handle at the moment) to get my metabolism started for the day.
Breakfast: not-at-all overnight oats, which really is just more like… raw oats and vanilla yogurt with a whole banana, sliced. I have it all the time. I’m obsessed with it.
Plus, all of the ingredients are free at the office, which is awesome.
Lunch: The Super Spinach Salad from Trader Joe’s, which I love. However, I replaced the dressing that comes with it with leftover balsamic vinaigrette from the salad I’d had from the day before because I am completely obsessed with that dressing.
Snack #1: Cheese Stick. I am so into these lately.
Snack #2: Cocoa Roast Almonds.
Have you tried these yet? If not, don’t walk, but RUN to the nearest grocery store. These things are the bomb!!!
Yes, the bomb. You like it.
I also may or may not have nibbled on an amazing cookie — double chocolate pecan — made by a co-worker.
Totally worth the calories. And the stomach-ache. Whatever. It was so good.
For dinner, I went out with a friend of mine to Lala’s, which is an Argentinian restaurant and one of my all-time faves out here.
I started off with a slice of bread.
I also split a small pitcher of Sangria with Tyler (the friend I went to dinner with, of course), which somehow went unpictured. I was probably too busy drinking it. The sangria, not Tyler.
Dinner was the Vegetable Plate, which is a skewer of grilled veggies. It comes with mashed potatoes, rice and salad, but I figure mashed potatoes offer enough starch and I just get double salad.
Works like a charm. Happy belly.
