I followed Inna’s eating rules today and this turned out to be a great day of mindful eating. It’s amazing how just paying a little more attention to simple things adds up to so much more. I’m liking this new motivation! What else is motivating me? Our vacation in FIVE weeks! We booked a little 4-day getaway to Aruba today. I am so excited! I think it will get busy at work soon so I should be more than ready for some time in the sun at the beginning of April.
Now onto today’s eats…
TJ’s european style yogurt, pear, fresh blueberries and 1/2 blueberry muffin + coffee
The muffin chunks tasted like CAKE for breakfast! Best idea ever.
All messy… mmm
The other half of the muffin + orange slices
Man, it hurts me to post this ugly picture. It was crazy delicious though. I promise!
WORKOUT – abs + spin. Nice and sweaty 😀
Baba ganoush, turkey, cucumbers and mustard on white whole wheat bread
A garlic pickle <3
+ baby carrots and cucumber slices
I know this is obvious, but I just wanted to remind you all that cucumbers in sandwiches are awesome!!! 😉
Strawberry Soyjoy I got at a conference ages ago.
I liked it a lot. It kind of tasted like a strawberry cookie.
Did I mention how much I love our new kitchen? Because I do! It’s seriously a pleasure being in it. I can’t get enough! I hope Adam can keep up with all the dish washing because I kind of want to live in the kitchen for a little while 😆
For dinner tonight I made some sweet potato falafel by following this recipe from the Pink Apron. My pita bread totally fell apart so this was one messy meal, but it was quite tasty nonetheless. I loved how crunchy the baked falafel balls were and the subtle sweetness of the sweet potatoes added a fun twist to the traditional recipe. The tomatoes + cucumbers added a nice freshness to this meal. Unfortunately, the sauce, to be honest, was just okay. I didn’t thin it enough so it was quite thick and Adam is not a fan of parsley so I just used a bit of dried parsley instead of fresh and the sauce ended up tasting kind of like plain sour cream. Not that exciting (not Kelly’s fault since I didn’t follow her directions properly). I’d make the falafel again but probably use hummus for sauce.
I just totaled up my calories for the day and realized I’m a bit low. I’m munching on a clementine and calling it a day. 😀
See you later alligators! 😎
