Split personality

Wow, sometimes I feel like I’m 2 different people! My posts on Sunday and Monday nights were not exactly chipper, and then we have a day like today, when everything just goes smoothly and I can’t even understand why Elina from 2 days ago had so much trouble. Good thing that days like today exist because I sure do enjoy them! ;)

BREAKFAST

Breakfast definitely started the day on the right foot – this baby I got from Whole Foods in Austin was the main star! Ever since I made Ellie Krieger’s pumpkin pie muffins, I’ve been obsessed with everything-pumpkin (must make them again soon)!!

Pre-made mixes are perfect for a week-day breakfast! 3 pumpkin pancakes with warm apple chunks, oikos and walnut pieces:

Definitely a great way to start the morning!!

PRE-WORKOUT SNACK

1T TJ’s almond butter + baby carrots. I love this combo!!

Workout – 45 minute bootcamp class. Oh yeah, my quads are burning. We did sprints today!!

LUNCH

An amazing salad!! Organic mixed greens, grape tomatoes, raw cauliflower, Niman Ranch ham (it’s the best!!!), pear slices and almonds, dressed in 1T of Annie’s balsamic vinaigrette.

This rocked!! I just love fruit in savory salads. Who needs to spend $10 on a salad?!!

DINNER

I’ve been excited for weeks about this recipe from Cooking Light for chicken-butternut tagine. I imagined intense flavors, all melting together in one ethnic dish…

Unfortunately both Adam and I found it bland. I used the wrong olives, which was definitely a bad mistake (they weren’t salty enough!) but otherwise I’m not sure what went wrong. :(

Dessert made up for a lack-luster dinner :) I realized that I haven’t had any treats all day, so I dug into a mini piece of cheesecake we had in the freezer. Come here, baby…

Mmm, oh yeah! ;)

I loved being able to enjoy a little dessert with absolutely no guilt. I’m all for indulging, just in moderation. This was perfection!! What a great day! :mrgreen:

What was your favorite meal today?
