Then I made my actual breakfast, which wasn’t incredibly different from the first breakfast starter. It was a bigger bowl of yogurt with frozen banana chunks, wheat berries and a bit of Fiber One cereal with a mug of a coffee/light hot chocolate mix. I also had a handful of grapes. This breakfast was SUPER filling and kept me full for hours. I wasn’t able to eat anything else for about six hours after consuming this and yet I was only relatively hungry by the time I was able to eat the snacks I packed myself. The snacks were an apple and 3/4 of an energy bar but I didn’t take a picture of either.
By the time I got home it was basically dinner time and I had planned on making myself a veggie burger but I was starving so I figured I would have a quick snack of some cottage cheese. Well, cottage cheese never ends up being a few bites for me since I made the mistake of eating straight out of the container. I just opened this container:
Whoops. So THAT became my dinner. I was quite filled up after this. But I figured I could use a little more balance and since I didn’t get veggies in at any other point today, I decided to make myself a salad dressed with dijonnaise and balsamic vinegar.
Post dinner I wasn’t overly hungry but craving sweets, so even though I knew this isn’t what I wanted, I decided to make a small bowl of Guardian cereal, frozen banana, almond milk and vanilla yogurt. One of my favourite snacks and it tasted really good but the craving wanted REAL sweets.
So after that I had a bite of a cookie, a few chocolate chips, and a few thin ginger cookie things with vanilla ice cream. Oh sigh. I should have just had one good indulgence to begin with rather than trying to squash that craving with inadequate substitutes… maybe next time!
