Wow, today’s food really blew me away. I was seriously crazy happy all day long, and I thank the local farmers market for making my day
The morning started out as per usual. I didn’t know what I was in the mood for, so I went for a sweet and savory combo: 1/2 FFL english muffin with 1 egg and cheese and 1/2 muffin with blueberry preserves + coffee
Nothing special here, really. Just food.
Moving on to my mid-morning snack. I was in the mood for a cookie, but I didn’t want to have it be too indulgent. Penny’s low fat white chocolate cranberry cookie was the perfect compromise!
I got a few samples a while ago and just threw them in the freezer. 30 seconds later I had a cookie + tea snack.
As you can see above, the cookie is a decent size and is around 150 calories. It was cakier than I usually prefer my cookies (I typically like either chewy or crunchy) and a little too sweet (making up for lack of fat?) but it hit the spot as far as satisfying my cookie craving. Like I said, it’s perfect for a day when I want a cookie but don’t want the calories of one.
Now let’s get to food that no joke made my heart race! After a yoga class during lunch, I decided to stop by the farmers market and buy some bread, fresh mozzarella and tomato for a simple lunch. The When Pigs Fly booth had bread samples and I asked for the olive one, and just for kicks – the chocolate one. OMG, I thought I died and went to heaven. It was unusually warm in Boston today so the bread was sitting in the sun and seriously tasted like it just came out of the oven. I couldn’t help but get both loaves. After buying the cheese and tomato, I was nearly sprinting back to my office – I couldn’t wait for my lunch! Look at this olive bread goodness!!
It was soft, it was chewy, it had giant olive pieces – seriously the best bread I have ever tasted in my life! I was putting the sandwich together like a mad woman; my heart was racing… I wanted to dig in! Voila – sandwich perfection: olive bread, tomato and mozzarella
Organic pear (I washed it after taking the pic and took the sticker off, don’t worry 😆 )
When Pigs Fly chocolate bread. Guess what I’m having for breakfast tomorrow? 😉
It’s Thursday, which means that’s right – an Ellie meal! On tonight’s menu: easy chicken mushroom quesadilla, hosted by Culinary Delights. You know my usual modifications – no onions, less oil, reduced fat cheese. That’s it. The result was delicious! The spices were great and the salsa we had on hand was amazing, which made the dinner extra yummy
To finish this day on a high note, I had a little slice of peach pie I also picked up at the farmers market.
Oh yeah, today was goooood What food makes your heart race?
