I love getting mail. Who doesn’t? But I hardly ever get it. So imagine my surprise when I discovered the mailbox loaded with surprises the other day. Stay tuned til a bit into the post and I’ll show you my lovely loot :)
For starter though, let’s go back to
I relaxed. I didn’t touch one school book. It was great. I don’t actually remember what I did all day. I started a room clean. That’s still a work in progress… and I ate food. And I joined my mom for a much needed grocery shop. It wasn’t an overly exciting day but there was no studying involved so it was a heck of a lot better than any other day this past week.
And some strained yogurt. This was pretty exciting. I took a container of typical FF yogurt, put it in a coffee filter over a mug and let it strain overnight. It actually worked pretty well! The yogurt was nice and thick. Well, about as thick as those yogurts can probably get.
And even more snacking that I don’t remember. I got myself into this stupid snacking rut the past week during my midterms and now I’m having a hard time breaking it. It’s quite frustrating. I’m working on it though.
Weetabix mixed with strained yogurt (Seriously, it’s fun to do. Especially when you don’t really have access to all that lovely looking greek yogurt spewed all over the blog world), banana, puffins for brekkie.
Now if this hadn’t put a smile on my face I don’t know what could. I kept seeing the FOODBUZZ apron and spatula featured on many blogs and I couldn’t help but feel a little jealous. So I was quite the happy camper when this arrived in the mail. And on top of that, thanks to LINDS! I am now the proud owner of a PEANUT BUTTER COOKIE LARABAR!
Well… was. I definitely already ate it at work yesterday during lunch. It was pretty darn great. Like conveniently packaged and portable peanut butter cookie dough.
I was skeptical about them in the beginning, but now with this flavour, cinnamon roll and coconut cream pie, I can finally deem myself a Larabar fan and I vow to try them all. AND to locate the peanut butter cookie flavour around here! THANKS AGAIN LINDS!
Nothing about Saturday from here on out is as exciting as my mail loot, but dinner was a sweet potato with hummus and salsa, along with a salad dressed in sweet and spicy mustard and light honey dijon dressing.
And more snacking because my hunger seemed to be insatiable.
Then I went out later with some friends. It wasn’t overly eventful. There was more snacking involved though. That’s aside from the liquor… sigh.
I will do better. From here on out it’s clean eating week. Okay? Okay. I need to hold myself to that.
I’m full. I ate this a while ago. Good power breakfast. Now let’s see how the rest of the day goes!
Hope everyone’s having a great weekend!
