Whoops, another three day update here. Those are weekends for ya.
I think I’m going to stick to posting more of just my main meals, snacks etc rather than trying to capture or at least talk about the majority of the things I eat. A lot of those little bites and things are really boring and don’t need mentioning. Some don’t need photographs either. So I’m going to try to stick to only posting about the slightly more exciting, relevant stuff. So if it seems like I haven’t had any snacks or had pretty small portions during a day, you can be almost guaranteed that I’ve eaten quite a bit more than that as well, but it was just lots of eatings that didn’t need mentioning ;)
And with that said, here’s the weekend:
And the PITA fest begins after going on a long time needed grocery shop and picking up some of my favourite pitas that I haven’t had in ages. Freshest pitas ever. And low cal. And protein-y! Can’t beat em. I don’t know what brand but I don’t think it matters because it’s just some random brand that I’m sure no one would be able to find anyway.
Dinner: Half a pita stuffed with roasted turkey slices (I hadn’t had good deli turkey in AGES. It was great), spinach and sweet and spicy mustard (SO good), SEAWEED SALAD, and SUSHI. Mmmmm mmmmmmm. I love grocery shopping. A new grocery trip always leads to great tasting dinners.
Then I met a friend at a bubble tea place. I got a hot chocolate mint tea. It was good but I think I would have liked it a little sweeter to be honest…. oh well.
Then we just had a chill night and rented Charlie Bartlett. Decent movie.
Aka work day as per usual.
Breakfast: Oats with frozen banana chunks and coffee yogurt mixed in, topped with more coffee yogurt and blueberries. This was my first time trying coffee flavoured yogurt. It was pretty good but the coffee flavour wasn’t all that prominent.
Lunch: Salad with black beans. I also had a small apple and plum.
AND I had to go pick up lunch for everyone at work. They had Subway, and the Subway is attached to a convenience store. This one had Crystal Light FROSTEES. There was no way I wasn’t jumping at THAT opportunity.
Snack: I was hungry a bit later again so I had half of a Cocoa Mole Larabar. This was… eh. Chili and chocolate? I dunno, not my thing. I mean, it wasn’t bad, but I doubt I would buy the flavour again. I had to try it though, it was too interesting to pass up. This must not be much of a favourite amongst food bloggers because I don’t think I ever really see this flavour mentioned…
Dinner: More pita! This was stuffed with (overcooked) egg whites, salsa, spinach, feta + goat cheese and possibly a couple other things I can’t remember. Along with MORE seaweed salad and some boxed mac&cheese.
Dessert: Ice cream? Not quite. I don’t know what it could be, more along the lines of a smoothie I guess, but technicalities aside, this was GOOD. It was frozen mango, FF vanilla yogurt, a splash of vanilla soy milk and almost 1 Tbsp of Peanut butter (the Kraft stuff. I just had to finish off the jar. I hate little bits of things sitting around. I need to use them up). Not overly pretty, but YES overly taste.
Then I went out with a friend. We were going out to the normal club I always go to that NEVER has a lineup, or if it does it never surpasses a 5 minute wait, but I forgot that this was homecoming weekend. So every bar, club etc was at capacity and lined up like crazy. We waited for over an hour to get in. We weren’t in til past one. And to boot, even after all that waiting it sucked once we got in. It was boring and we just weren’t in the mood anymore and it wasn’t staying open a whole lot longer anyway. So we were hardly there an hour. We left to get food (my friend got a PITA that I ended up finishing the last probably 1/4 of once she was done with it – Man I love pitas), then tried to get a cab. Yeah, that didn’t work out so well. I don’t think we got back to her place until after 3. And it was COLD out. We could have walked back to her place but the walk is a pretty long one and we were in heels. I would have just taken them off and walked barefoot but we had already walked a good distance from the club to somewhere thinking we might be able to catch a cab easier without having to fight so many people for one if we went to a different location, but that walk along KILLED my feet. They were literally stinging, so even walking without the heels killed.
Needless to say, the whole night was pretty much crap. And I wasn’t overly in the mood to go out in the first place. SO I was kind of kicking myself after that one. Oh well, you win some you lose some. This one was a pretty big LOSE.
Which brings us to today. I didn’t do anything productive. I shopped with a friend. I should have spent many of my wasted hours doing homework. I didn’t. I am now going to be kicking myself no doubt this week since I am already behind in my readings. I can just never keep on top of them, I’m so bad at that. I’ll do my best to catch up a bit though in the next few days. I say that as I sit here blogging instead of READING. Where the heck do my priorities lie?
Breakfast: I came home from my friend’s pretty early, chilled a bit, and then made some breakfast. Egg whites with salsa, spinach and a FF cheese slice on 1/2 an Ezekiel english muffin. This used to be one of my favourite breakfasts. So good.
I also had an apple along with it, and the last little bit of coffee yogurt mixed with PUMPKIN BUTTER. Which I made this morning. From this recipe. I halved it. It’s good stuff. I think I’m going to try mixing it in oatmeal tomorrow.
Then I went shopping and bought some Halloween mellowcremes. You know those giant candy corn like candies, but they aren’t candy corn shape? I dunno how to describe them other than “yum”.
Dinner: MORE pita. I told you there was a lot of pita. THIS one was stuffed with a GARDENBURGER and goat cheese and sundried tomatoes and spinach and sweet and spicy mustard and tomato and awesomeness. Then there was the not as awesome but still pretty good Riceroni and meatloaf.
WELL, the picture of that dinner was completely wrong, no idea how that happened but I just took it out. I feel like this keeps happening. Really weird…
And some frozen mango with yogurt. Good as always, but didn’t beat the ice creamy/smoothie/whatever dish of last night.
And that is my weekend. In one very very large nutshell. Hope you all enjoyed yours!
