As promised, Sloppity Slop… Snobby Joe Style!
It’s not pretty but it sure it tasty!
Also tasty was THIS: Last night I strained a full container of plain fat free yogurt and put the freshly thick batch back into the original container. This is how much I got:
Slightly less than half of the original amount. Maybe slightly over a cup? This was the cheapest plain yogurt I saw at around $2.50. I guess that’s not bad for Greek-like yogurt since I hear it’s so darn expensive but since we don’t have any around here I don’t have a good basis for comparison. I do think it’s worth the price to do it this way though, even though it results in such a small amount because the strained after product is too great for words.
After savouring a couple bites of thick yogurt perfection I moved on to the real breakfast. I’ll call it Fruit Bowl Oatmeal.
Nearly overflowing with chunks of extremely overripe and deliciously sweet banana, as well as strawberries, kiwi and grapes, this was one fruitfully delightful dish. And speaking of dish, there was no better fit for this breakfast than my dandy little pear bowl.
My between-classes snack consisted of half of a Pure Protein S’mores bar and an apple.
Then I came home and made a nice big salad bowl, along with a side of leftover mashed cauliflower mixed with FF sour cream and topped with chili powder.
I also made a mini wrap with a Dempster’s Whole Grains Ancient Grains Tortilla stuffed with lettuce, deli sliced chicken and dijonnaise. The tortillas were a new purchase and they are so good. Aside from being very fresh, all of the little grains embedded into the tortilla give it a bit of fun chew that’s absent in other tortillas I’ve had. These may just be my new go-to tortilla of choice.
I did a 5.5 mile run on the treadmill and then I decided to test my plank abilities… 2 minutes! And I feel pretty confident that I could have gone longer if I really wanted to. It was fairly tough though. I don’t do planks often. However I do think I want to start. They actually leave me dripping with sweat! Well, as long as I’ve already been sweating in the first place (I did it right after my run). But seriously, I like planks.
I also like dinner, so…
Allow me to introduce you to a burger of amazing proportions: The Amy’s Kitchen California Veggie Burger. If you’ve never tried one go out and buy them. Now.
This was the last one of the box. I may have nearly cried but I restrained myself.
Underneath the burger of greatness lies a layer of goat cheese, dijonnaise and lettuce.
But I’m a hungry gal and although every bite of this was pure perfection, I could have probably eaten three. Instead I had a bit of cottage cheese, and then some unexciting greens with feta.
I may have finished this all off with a really great bowl of Peanut Butter Puffins, almond milk and frozen banana chunks. There is no photographic evidence of this however. This may be due to the fact that after trying to turn on my camera to no avail, I quickly realized that my memory card was still in my computer. I could not allow the Puffins to go to sog so I quickly munched away sans photo. I’m sure your lovely creative minds can dream up puffin bowls more beautiful than I could ever put together to show you though, so dream away!
Now I should really go back to the land of endless school work.
